You have forgotten to include the three USAF F-15C/D squadrons based overseas: one at Lakenheath and two at Kadena with about 18 aircraft plus spares per squadron.

According to the USAF the Florida Air National Guard will begin receiving their first F-35As in 2024. That can hardly be counted as a current F-35A squadron dedicated to an air superiority mission.
