F35B Lightning two

I suggest it may be the second as the crabs beat us to it when naming their squadron, 617 dumb-bastards!

Please God, lets not call the UK F35 whatever-suffix-letter the Lightning II. It's like calling jumped up Septic kids things like Algernon Winthrop the 3rd. And are we supposed to start calling venerable and auspicious Air Squadrons (Crab and WAFU) names like bloody American "football" teams? OK, the dead dog Sqn became the Dam Busters because of national acclaim at the time but that doesn't have to translate to every badge on the sodding Order of Battle.
