Ah! What the F-35 would have turned out to be if not constrained by the STOVL requirement, including two engines to ensure redundancy over water.
IMHO the USAF would have NEVER signed off on a twin engine JSF. Since they are the largest customer by far (along with all the partners) the JSF would still have been a single engined fighter.
