The F-35 fighters are among the most advanced long-range warfare fighters, as they can carry out air control missions and bomb targets at a long range from their launch site, and they have stealth capabilities that make detecting radars impossible.
Many countries own that plane, and Turkey was among the countries participating in its manufacture before it was excluded due to the Russian S-400 missile deal, which the United States rejects, in addition to Israel, which seeks to own 50 such aircraft.
