US Marines turned a warship into an F-35 'Lightning carrier' in a test to boost US power

The Navy and the Marines loaded up an amphibious assault ship with a heavy configuration of F-35s, and experts believe it's an experiment for a new type of light carrier known as a "Lightning Carrier."

Lightning carriers armed with F-35s could theoretically take over operations in low-end conflicts, freeing up the "supercarriers" to focus on higher-end threats such as Russia and China.

These light carriers could also boost the overall firepower of the Navy carrier force.
