Another F-35 comparison

Which of these can carry more bombs?

F-35 A the worlds newest multirole fighter.                                    MAERSK Triple E, the worlds largest container ship, 65,000 tons 

                                                                                                                  bigger than a Ford class carrier.

OK, that is a trick question, the Triple E can carry enough bombs to reduce a major metropolitan city to dust, it just can't use them.

Which one can go further on one tank of gas?

OK, this is also a trick question, the Triple E can sail half way around the globe on a tank of gas, but then it carries more fuel than all of the F-35s we will ever buy put together.

Which one costs more?

Also a trick question, at current LRIP production numbers, the Triple E is only $4million more than the F-35A and it is $65million less than the F-35B.
