Spaz, do you think a user whose first (and hopefully only) post is link to dubious blog full of BS in the wrong thread is going to take advice & act diligently? Best case it's a promo bot to attract clicks, worst case he's a toxic troll like wewuz et al.

Best course of action - report & ignore.

What about the F-35 being nicknamed "Cerberus"?

The 3 heads of the guardian hell hound could represent the A, B, C types.

I was watching a video showcasing the 'B' at sea, and a 'C' made a few passes.. It dawned on me, at least the 'C' variant, owing from its larger wing from certain angles, especially head on, looks like a Vampire...swoop down and get you at night. Unofficial nickname, Vampire?

LOL. I agree with what others have already said: the 'C' looks like a vampire :shock:

I view all variants, their unofficial nicknames, 'TARDISs'. I'm a fan of the Classic Series of Dr Who. To me, an F-35 is like a TARDIS (the Doctor's time machine for those not acquainted with the show), in that it is seemingly larger on the inside than the outside; the aircraft can hold so much fuel, sensors, avionics, countermeasures, weapons inside, while being only about a foot longer than today's F-16 :shock:

:devil: Sadly in some circles 'TARD' is short for RETARD which is likely how TARDIS will be spoken/viewed :doh: "THE TARD". :mrgreen:

Hawk, for 'Arm' (the rebels against the 'Core') stealth fighter in the circa 2000 RTS game Total Annihilation

The A version could be the "Hawk".

The C version could be the "Vamp".

Maybe the B version could be the "Uber"?

Would the I version then be the "Inca" to denote the gold-plated nonstandard?
