    Helicopter Refuels and Resupplies F-35

    US Marine Corps, February 10, 2019 - OKINAWA, JAPAN by Cpl Dakota Heathwarr - US Marines with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron HMH-465, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing (1st MAW), refuel and resupply an F-35B Lightning II jet with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron VMFA-121, during Distributed STOVL Operations (DSO) on Ie Shima island, Japan, Jan. 23, 2019.

    The rehearsal enabled CH-53E helicopters to re-fuel and re-arm F-35B Lightning II jets from a Forward Arming and Refueling Point (FARP), significantly improving the operational flexibility, survivability, and lethality of the F-35B.

    The FARP provided a hot refuel and hot reload for multiple aircraft with All Up Rounds (AUR), also known as a completely assembled weapon, giving pilots the ability to stay in the fight longer, and accomplish more missions in a shorter period of time from austere locations.
