Does the F-35B use its articulating rear jet nozzle for thrust vectoring?

In hovering or STOL/STOVL/VTOL flight yes it can vector its thrust but the system is not operable during conventional flight modes. No version of the F-135 is publicly known to be capable of this. Unlike the Harrier, F-35Bs cannot use the vertical lift system in the conventional flight regime.
