F-35 sent to the US air base in Japan

53
US media spread the message that F-35 aircraft have been sent to Japan. We are not talking about the US contract with Japan on the implementation of these fighter-bombers, but about the transfer of aircraft from the US Marine Corps. In fact, this is the first operational transfer of F-35 US troops outside the United States.


The latest American aircraft are located at the American airbase in the city of Iwakuni (Yamaguchi). According to the US military command, there is a process of replacing the currently existing F / A-18 and AV-8 Harrier aircraft at the air base. In total, the airbase will be replenished with 16 units of F-35. They are sent to Japan from an American military base in Arizona.

F-35 sent to the US air base in Japan


It should be recalled that in the beginning of December there were reports in the Japanese press that the Japanese Air Force received the first F-35 aircraft from the United States as part of a previously concluded contract.

It is known that the Pentagon has plans to deploy F-35 at US air bases not only in Japan, but also in other countries of East Asia, as well as in the Middle East. If we talk specifically about the Middle East, the United States is ready to send F-35 to air bases in the states of Bahrain and to Kuwait.

      And thank God that I forgot ... How much they killed in due time. In China alone. Do you want a repetition ??? Yes, and many of our people died in the wars with Japan. It’s better that the Japanese sit at home and don’t go anywhere. And I would advise you to separate your hatred of the United States from common sense.

        They are already sitting at home!

        And they will sit!

        But the fact that paradise itself provides a springboard for mattresses is bad !!

          Of course it's bad. But the Americans have been there since the age of 45, and you cannot smoke them from there. Ordinary Japanese have long been protesting against American bases, but to no avail.

            Water sharpens a stone. Over time, the US presence there is declining. If you take the numbers of how many troops were there 40 years ago and how many are there now, the difference is obvious. There is another question. If the United States leaves, it is unlikely that someone else will appear there. And if the Japanese remember the covenants of the samurai, then it will be possible to fight for the Kuril Islands on occasion, and we still have no logistics in the Far East. Japan is very close, and we have everything very far from the theater. Therefore, let the United States stay better. We already know them well and no surprises are expected from them.

              .
              In 2016, massive military exercises were held in the Sakhalin Region and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, involving about 100 military and 100 units of military equipment. And this is just the beginning and a cold shower for the "cool samurai" dreaming of revenge - Russia can quickly and mobile move not only from the Trans-Baikal, Kamchatka, Primorsky Territories, but also from other military districts to a hot spot. And the United States has nothing to do there, you can expect any dirty tricks and provocations from them. In fact, between South and North Korea, "passions" are not abating, mostly from the United States, and the same picture is with China, and the "northern territories" are not forgotten by the Japanese thanks to the "advice" of the United States.

                In general, I agree, but the logistics are probably not going smoothly and what is already there in case of a conflict is clearly not enough - your post: "in the exercises of 100 thousand military men and 100 units of military equipment" - isn't there enough equipment? + probably "military equipment" is the UAZ of the colonels and other "not tanks"

          I think that the presence of US troops in some countries is not always bad for us. And you somehow scrape under one comb. I was against the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, what happened because of this we see today - a new war. With Japan, too, everything is complicated. This aggressor country was occupied. The USSR and the USA fought together against Japan, and the USSR agreed to its occupation not by chance. Japan could and can quickly bring itself into good military uniform, create an offensive army and navy, and can easily dominate its region, given the proximity of its bases and infrastructure and our remoteness from the theater of operations. Our main forces are located thousands of kilometers from the Far East. Do you need such a deal and a new enemy ??? Therefore, the United States is better there than samurai who dream of an empire over which the sun does not set.

        Well, what about Japanese policy during the Sino-Japanese and World War II, and those crimes are only partially combined with the code of the samurai. Of course, they were and there is no excuse for them .. And what do you want the islands to fully and completely follow in the wake of the United States? To deprive them of their own policies?

          They never followed all the way to the USA. They cooperate with us where it is to their advantage and the United States is not very worried. The United States also understands that strengthening Japan and their complete independence is not beneficial for them in the same way as Russia))) Therefore, we have such a historical compromise in Japan. We recognize the US presence in Japan, and the USA guarantees us the possibility of developing relations with Japan and does not prevent the Japanese from interacting with us. Within reasonable limits, of course. Formally, Japan introduced sanctions against us, but in fact we continue to work with them. They even give loans to us, although they seem to have no right))) And an important moment - the DPRK. This is a potential problem for everyone in the region. And here we are from the United States on one side.

              You may be right, but it seems to me more and more that Eun regularly reminds of himself in order to receive more humanitarian aid from the world. They do not export anything, except for their loud statements and scarecrows in the style: "We will destroy everyone if they don't look at us like that" (and between the lines it reads that you want to eat, give something else, otherwise we bang). How much humanitarian aid to them for the last 40 years and it does not count. And all is not enough. And the DPRK's nuclear weapons will not please anyone. If something happens to the regime, then it can get to anyone. Everything is there. China, Japan, US bases, South Korea, Russia. Anyone can fly. Such a prospect does not smile at anyone. So Kim is a problem. Removing it by force is expensive and dangerous, and waiting for him to invent an ICBM with nuclear weapons is also somehow not comme il faut. So it turns out that one buy-in is worse than the other and something needs to be done, but no one knows what.

        GDP said that America has a good, most powerful army in the world. And we are stronger than any aggressor. With the F-35 it will be, with what else - what's the difference? What, Napoleon had curves guns? Or is Hitler’s army weak and weapons poor? However, they broke the ridge. It will be necessary - and we will break America - and the F-35 will not help ... I wrote about the Ukrainian M16, I will repeat about the F-35 - not F-35s are fighting, but PEOPLE. We have something to fight for - for the Motherland, for our home. And why did the Germans fight the French? For "robbing"? And what are the Americans going to fight for? For green cards and bonuses for college entrance .... Kill, do not let the YEAR in which they TRUST, who then needs a green card? The motivation is different, hence the quality of the soldier is different - you put him at least on the F-35, even on the F-1335 ...

          Your words to God in the ears ... Unfortunately, in local wars they have been fighting for money for a long time. The soldiers make money there. And our army is no exception. People first of all earn money, and only then: "For comrades, for the Motherland, for Stalin." Such motivation is paramount only in a global war, where the entire statehood of the country is on the map, and such a war is impossible today - this means the destruction of the entire planet. Therefore, money is the main motivation for all soldiers of all countries today.

              Your comment is inappropriate. It is as if you are not familiar with the fact that many people go to hot spots to earn money, and they always paid well and paid for it. If you think that it’s shameful for the military to strive to earn more, then I condemn you. It is a normal desire to provide for your family at the expense of what you know how to. I know how to fight - I’ll go to fight. I do not consider it shameful. Each does his job, and you talk about money, as if it was an insult to the military. Some kind of romantic dreamer.

            Our Afghan could hardly be called a global war. Nevertheless, the boys did not fight there for money. Officers - yes. There were. For the stars, for the money - there were all sorts of ... But they did not fight - they bullied in Kabul and in Hairaton, and then, spreading their fingers, in the Union they went to the headquarters and poked at their ZBZ. And the normal, military, officers and boys-soldiers did not fight for money. Of course, it was also a long way to the realization of the "international duty" and "protection of the southern borders of our Motherland," as political officials rattled at political studies. But there was a healthy hatred of the barmaley and anger "for Sasha, whose head was cut off by the beards a week ago" .... And in Syria, men did not fly for money.

              I agree, but this army was different. Draft There they fought in order to survive trite and return home. They did not fight for the USSR and the international, but fought for each other and only because they were sent there. Of course, there were volunteers, conditionally all volunteers, but not because they wanted to, but because they refused to refuse.

            It’s difficult to call people who control them pilots, rather computer operators, if the computer becomes cramped, then the aircraft’s kirdyk is 80%, as Komrad video posted yesterday about the crash of TU-154, Magomed Talboev correctly substantiated, there were few real pilots.

      Three bases on the Kuril Islands are being built, if I’m not mistaken ... The Bastions are also being transferred there, and in my S-400.

    Russia, with the installation of the Sopka-2 TRLK on Wrangel Island, has closed the circle of Russia's defense in the Eastern direction. And about the F-35, I can only repeat the words of Konoshenkov. The combat calculations of the SAM, S-350, S-400 will not matter who there, and where it flies. And the likely enemy will be unpleasantly surprised by the capabilities of our air defense!

    Who told you this? In any case, in the garrison where I served they (S-350) stand for the second year.

      Are you about Vityaz? It is not adopted. If not mistaken, the problem is in the rocket for this complex. I don’t want to rummage, because I'm going to work. See for yourself.

    He has no problems with the rocket. He uses the same as the S-400. The difference is in high mobility, and the new TTX ... Now he is here and after an hour for tens of kilometers. Once again I repeat. He is transferred to a dangerous section of the US border, along with the MIG-31 squadron. In the place where they missed the South Korean Boeing.

      I don’t think they have a large army of 1,5 million, and they have nuclear missile weapons, here NATO is waiting for a second Vietnam, and if China also joins the northern ones, then the Americans will fight for a long and tedious war.

    True ideas were written here, if the United States departs from its influence in Japan, then Japan will assemble a large and powerful army with advanced technical equipment within two years and even be able to become another nuclear power. We can get a powerful adversary in case of conflict with them. it would be better to be a mild (militarily) US ally than a separate, but yet another strong adversary along with the States.
