    NATO Allied Air Command
    September 26 at 2:06 PM ·
    Aeronautica Militare is deploying F-35 fighter aircraft to Iceland under NATO’s peacetime Air Policing mission safeguarding Icelandic airspace. Italy is first Ally deploying modern fighter aircraft in a NATO mission. Upon certification for the mission by Combined Air Operations Centre Uedem, Germany, the Italian task force will execute the special mission out of Keflavik Air Base Landhelgisgæsla Íslands/Icelandic Coast Guard. For Italy it is the fifth time – and the second time in 2019 – to support this NATO mission that showcases Allied solidarity, readiness and cooperation.

    Hey, got a quick question.

    In the French Navy, the Rafale-M is only allowed to take one heavy cruise missile (SCALP-NG) at a time/mission, under it's belly, as a precaution: it can technically takes more SCALPs under its wings but if one fails to launch then it would make the aircraft instable and extremely difficult to land on the carrier.

    Considering that this basic rule of gravity applies to the F-35B too and that security measures are the same for all western nations, it should also be able to take only one missile under its belly, but this hard-point only allows a 1000lb weapon and the LRASM is 2500lb.

    Does it mean that the F-35B can't take any LRASM ? I know the missile is not even in active service but still, for the future it would really be a pain in the ass. It would only be able to take the JSM which is not that scary tbh.
