Why The F-35 Lightning Didn't Star In Top Gun: Maverick?

F-35 Lightning is a fifth-generation fighter plane used by the US Navy.

BUT F-35 DID NOT MAKE IT TO  TOP GUN

Top Gun: Maverick made big in theatres this year but 

EVEN AFTER BEING BASED ON THE NAVY IT DID NOT HAVE F-35

WHY WAS  IT NOT INCLUDED IN THE MOVIE

?

There are several theories behind the same and the most plausible seems that

THE FIGHTER PLANE IS MADE FOR HIGH ALTITUDES

and absence of high octane dogfighting.
