Some response here with USMC adding an extra 13 F-35Bs to total buy which is incorrectly recorded as extra F-35Cs in the SAR table seen here:
"...Some of the acquisition cost increases come from the Air Force’s decision to whack the size of its maximum annual purchase of F-35As from 80 per year down to 60, stretching the service’s planned purchases by six years. The Total Program Cost Estimate rose by $11 billion, a substantial portion of the $27.5 billion acquisition cost increase...."
