The Pentagon will send some more F-35A to Europe

The US Department of Defense plans in the coming days to send to Europe some more of the newest F-35A fighter-bombers, reports TASS message to the press officer of the US Air Force Mark Graff.

The Pentagon will send some more F-35A to Europe


The representative of the Air Force recalled that last week the first six fighters arrived in Europe.

There are currently six F-35A deployed to Europe as a planned deployment training mission,
he said.

According to Graeff, this step was taken "for the training of personnel during training flights with the participation of F-35A fighter-bombers and other aircraft of the United States and NATO stationed in Europe."

It is planned that some more F-35A will arrive in Europe later this week. F-35A will remain in Europe for several weeks. The current mission will, among other things, make it possible to prepare for the permanent deployment of F-35A fighters on the basis of the Royal Air Forces Leikenhit in the UK in the future,
he said.

The European command of the United States, in turn, noted that in the framework of the current deployment, the F-35A aircraft will be located not only in the UK.

“They will also carry out their advanced deployment at NATO bases in order to increase the capabilities of training (personnel), to strengthen the North Atlantic Alliance and its collective doctrine of deterrence,” the command press service said.

        The EU will pay all maintenance and operating costs. In return, he will receive ghostly protection from the "evil Russians."

                    The mattresses will make every effort to convince Europe that this is the only way to avoid Russian aggression. And Europe can agree, spitting on the consequences in favor of the Master, they are not accustomed to push their own interests far into the fifth point.

            but I’m wondering what the Nexus will say when the F-35 or another plane bombes somewhere somewhere covered by the S-300. although it’s already clear: they’ll start a dull song from the time of the defeat of Syrian air defense in Lebanon in the 82nd year: “our equipment is wonderful, just stupid and cowardly non-Russians didn’t manage to use it. Or, as an option, they will shout:“ HEALTH ”...

              And it will be interesting for me to listen to you, dear, when the same S-300 or SU-35, "by mistake" not intentionally, will stick an Israeli F-35 into the ground, which will peacefully bomb the positions of the ATS, with the explanation that Hezbollah is there.

      And intercepted and altered, and the ground staff was ready.
      By the way! Not F-35, but F-35I (I- Israel), the difference is colossal. F-35I machine with phenomenal capabilities, or did you think the Rabinovichi will unfasten 100000000 green for some kind of drek? You are mistaken.

        I remember, seasoned pilots, when they were transferred from the Phantoms to the F-16, were very strongly upset that the car was “smarter” than the pilots. The plane itself corrected all the mistakes and errors of the pilots, and they didn’t like it very much, but with time they could agree between themselves, And I emphasize the F-35i “i”, maybe, if necessary, conduct military operations without a pilot.

          On the contrary, as far as I read. In F-35, a pilot in battle can be freed from actually
          piloting - there is a sophisticated autopilot that can fly a plane even on steep
          bends. Do not frantically hold the helm. And the pilot focuses on the combat situation in the group and shooting.

            Everything is correct! That is what I had in mind, but did not accurately describe.
            I also suggested the fet-16 system.

            it scares me. that the F-35 equalizes the chances of a good and bad pilot (in our case, Israeli and Turkish). Oh, this stupid idea is to sell 100 F-35s to the Turks ... it would be better if the Turks bought the T-50, and Russia’s profit, and we’ll be calmer.

                Nexus, look at the T-50 nozzles and you will understand everything about its stealth. I know for sure that the purchase of the F-35 by the Turks robs our Air Force command, everyone would prefer to deal with the T-50 rather than the F-35. One of the issues at the meeting between Netanyahu and Trump was the cancellation of the Turkish F-35 contract. That's because our prime minister is stupid and does not read the posts of Nexus and Co. on the VO forum. Otherwise, he would have known that the F-35 is a penguin seen on radars, a flying iron, a child prodigy and sawed dough, which cannot pose a threat to our country.

                  Mask and Co. generally believes that the F-35 is invisible, and in all planes and ranges, and during the flight, it flies to enemy radars by definition from the most invisible side. wassat But the radar is much more powerful than the heavy PAK FA. laughing However, as well as a longer-range arsenal. wassat

But there are fewer of these ... here they wanted to buy UAVs from Israel for example ... or China in Israel wanted to buy an AWACS plane ... or the situation with France with the Mistrals ...
