Learned something new too....appeantly its limited with its current software to just 7 G's but with the new softwware it go up to 9 G's.
From Combat Aircraft Magazine.
"The F-35 at the show is flying with Block 3i software, meaning it is limited to 7g. However, it can fly to above 50 degrees AoA."
"It is also worth noting that the envelope will be expanded out to 9g with the forthcoming Block 3F software."
