    I still haven't seen if the US Marines will try/ use the SRVL as a recovery option for their F-35B. Anyone know anything about this?

    No, they wont use the SRVL, they are comfortable with their vertical landings, just a little different operational philosophy

    SRVL will not be adopted because there is simply insufficient deck length with the LHA/LHDs.

    The reasoning for it can be found in another post which explains it.

    There will be a news source within a couple of days.

    The 500th fuselage marked AU18 was intended for RAAF(A variant)
    https://news.northropgrumman.com/ne...0th-center-fuselage-for-the-f-35-lightning-ii

    LRIP 1-11 quantity- 501
    was supposed to be delivered by last week of Jan'20. However 3 extra units delivered before NYE pulled the schedule up by a week.

    For variant details -
    LM had put out a PR mentioning variant figures and Lrip status when 400 units were delivered, in Jun 2019(283/87/30).
    Add the remaining variant numbers from wiki/DoD.
