Its less about using the F-35 for recon but aboutdefeating the Syrian AD. Their subsonic guided ordnance has a hard time against Pantsirs and the
like, in almost every sortie some got shot down. A (cheap) supersonic missile with a robust guidance package will make the Job of intercepting them
Of course they could just stick to the ground launched version and safe even more money.
