The FA-35 Joint Strike Fighter was a multirole fighter, in use by the Task Force Talon, designed for air superiority and laser-guided bombing runs.[2]


Damn! I've been painted!
- FA-35 JSF, being targeted

Though not as good as the F-15 for air superiority, the FA-35 is still a potent warplane with its four GPS-guided bombs, which can also be upgraded to blackout bombs that disable enemy structures. However, its lack of stealth makes it vulnerable to enemy air defenses.

While originally the plane was armed with a limited number of anti-air missiles, in High Treason this was removed, and it will engage enemy aircraft one at a time if they stray into firing range. Its bomb ammunition is still limited, however.

The seaborne version of the aircraft, which is only available from the San Antonio class, can be differentiated by its paint job. The naval version performs virtually like a helicopter, in that it doesn't enter and exit the map like the regular airstrike version and can be controlled by the player. It will fly tight circles around a designated area, or land on its parent ship to rearm. The naval version has unlimited anti-air and anti-tank missiles, as well as a single Harpoon missile for engaging enemy ships. It is slightly cheaper than the regular plane.

Costs $3500. FA-35s fire two blackout bombs on enemy structures. Effective vs structures only; buildings will be disabled while blackout is in effect. High Treason only.[1]



  • In reality, the unit shown in-game is actually named as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
