The Last Jedi
Two USN carriers were performing dual operations in Mediterranean last weekYes, but considering that that carrier should make a port visit in Croatian port of Split, and they cancelled that in a last moment, then maybe it's really sent to Gulf ASAP?
Perhaps GBU (Guided Bomb Unit)-12 Paveway;I'm wondering what those F-35Bs used in "anti-surface role"

The Defense Secretary was given last-minute a heads-up about the White House's demand to keep the USS Harry S. Truman afloat, and the Navy scrambled Wednesday morning to change its message to Congress.
for me, one of the most interesting moments of six years of watching the USN has just occurred:
"In his original written remarks — struck at the last minute — Richardson was to say the Navy is “making tough calls about the capabilities we need to tackle future challenges,” and the decision to cancel the Refueling and Complex Overhaul (RCOH) of the ship would help fund a slew of other modernization programs."
Block F is basically limited to JDAM for ground attack. The envelope will open up with Block 4 brining with it NSM and Storm Breaker although that would be sometime in 2022 for the latter. Weapons integration with the JSF is rather painfully slow in my view. Faster weapon integration is also one of the reason not to adopt the F-35s as a substitute for the replacement of the aging F-15Cs.huh?
Also the JDAM..very "cheap" and accurate.
