The US Navy just quietly sent an F-35 aircraft carrier to the Pacific — and it signals a big change

The US Navy broke with its tradition of hyping up F-35 deployments when it sent the USS Essex jump-jet carrier into the Western Pacific with a deck full of the revolutionary fighter jets this week — and it could signal a big change in how the US deals with its toughest adversaries.

When the USS Wasp became the first small-deck aircraft carrier to deploy with US Marine Corps F-35Bs earlier this year, the media was in on it. But the Essex's departure marks a change, as the Navy announced the deployment only after the ship departed, USNI News noted. http://www.businessinsider.com/us-navy-quietly-sends-f-35-aircraft-carrier-to-pacific-china-south-sea-2018-7
