    Dumb question...can anyone confirm whether the F-35B has any wet pylons on the wings?

    Thanks Joe. There are a few rumours bouncing round the interwebby-thingy regarding issues with the external tanks as well as questions about whether they can be fitted to all variants or just the A/C beasts. The added complexity of dry pylons only for the F-35B would probably drive up costs and logistic challenges...but, equally, there seems to be little definitive and up-to-date info out there on the topic.

    Yep...those are some pretty long bursts being fired (clearly for test purposes).
