Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron (VMFAT-501) "Warlords" was formed in April 2010 at Eglin AFB, Florida as a Fleet Replacement Squadron administratively under Marine Aircraft Group but operationally under the 33rd Fighter Wing that controls USAF and USN F-35 training. On July 17, 2014 VMFAT-501 began the transfer of their aircraft to Beaufort, South Carolina with F-35B 168067 c/n BF-06 VM-01 being the first to arrive. Official training began October 1, 2014 with the Marines declaring the F-35B IOC (Initial Operational Capability) in July 2015.

Lockheed F-35B Lightning II JSF

Designed to meet the US Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. It uses a low-maintenance stealth technology, and some versions have an innovative Lift System, which gives the F-35 vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The US plans to buy a total of 2,443 F-35s at a cost of $323 billion, which makes the F-35 the most expensive defense program in history.
