It would seem likely the era of the USMC F/A-18 UDP in Japan has come to a close, and these VMFA-211 Lightnings are the first wave of the first USMC F-35 UDP. If this is so, the remaining jets (x4?) can be expected at Iwakuni shortly.

They arrived at Elmendorf AFB last Thursday as FEUD 11 and FEUD 21 flight.
Supporting tankers were PETRO 65 (87-0119) and PETRO 75 (87-0120).

From a USMC press release, it appears VMFA-121 at MCAS Iwakuni is acquiring brand new F-35Bs. Officially 8 new Lightnings have arrived at Iwakuni for the Green Pawns-from here?. Reports from Japan are awaited...
