Recently, Australia more than doubled its F-35A fleet when Lockheed Martin delivered three F-35As (AU3, AU4 and AU5) to the Royal Australian Air Force team stationed at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, USA. These are Australia's first Block 3F Lightning II 'Mission Ready' jets which are being used to train USAF and RAAF pilots and maintanence crews. The first F-35As will arrive in Australia in December 2018 to ensure continuity in Australia's air combat capability during the drawdown of the F/A-18A/B Hornet fleet that the F-35A is replacing.
