The F-35B STOVL (Short Take-Off and Vertical Landing) Lightning II represents a significant leap in Italy's military aviation capabilities. Developed by Lockheed Martin as part of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program, the F-35B variant is designed for versatility and operational flexibility, particularly in environments where traditional runways are unavailable.

Italy became a key partner in the JSF program in the early 2000s, committing to both the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing variant and the F-35B. The first Italian F-35B made its maiden flight in October 2015 and was delivered to the Italian Navy in 2017, marking a milestone as Italy became the first country outside the United States to operate the F-35B.

The F-35B’s advanced stealth, sensor fusion, and network-enabled operations significantly enhance Italy's naval aviation, enabling operations from aircraft carriers like the Cavour and smaller amphibious assault ships. The F-35B's capabilities bolster Italy's defense strategy, ensuring a modern, flexible response to emerging threats. This acquisition underscores Italy's commitment to maintaining a cutting-edge, interoperable force within NATO and other international coalitions.
