Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron (VMFAT-501) “Warlords” was formed in April 2010 at Eglin AFB in Florida as a Fleet Replacement Squadron administratively under Marine Aircraft Group but operationally under the 33rd FW 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 BF06 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.

The Lockheed F-35 Lightning II is a fifth generation multi-role fighter aircraft that combines radar evading stealth technology with supersonic speed and extreme agility. The three variants of the Lightning II are the F-35A, B, and C. The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant. It features two internal weapons bays and six external hardpoints for mounting a variety of weapons under the wings plus an internal 25 mm cannon. The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant while the F-35C is the aircraft carrier-based variant. The F-35 was developed to replace the U.S Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon, U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet and the U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8 Harrier II.

The F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006 and is starting to enter operational service with the United States military and the air forces of several other countries that were partners in the development of the aircraft.
