Netherlands Air Force General: We need to regain air superiority

39
The Netherlands Air Force reported that they are beginning to implement programs to improve the skills of military pilots to conduct operations in the framework of air-to-air missions. It is reported that the new program is being introduced due to the fact that in recent years, the Dutch pilots have mainly focused on training support for ground operations, leaving the mission to counter aircraft in the side.

American information resource Defense News reports that after the concentration of the Dutch Air Force on supporting ground operations (Iraq, Syria, Mali), "the skills of conducting air combat are weakened."

Netherlands Air Force General: We need to regain air superiority


The portal quotes a Dutch air force general, Denis Luite:
We need to restore combat readiness. We performed one-sided missions. We need to invest in air missions, develop the skills of military pilots.


The publication reminds that the planes of the Netherlands Air Force from 2014, the year involved in operations in Iraq, with 2016 - in Syria. In total, about 2 thousand departures from bases in Jordan were made. The Royal Netherlands Air Force contributed to the United Nations mission in Mali since 2014, with four Apache helicopters and three CH-47D Chinook transport helicopters. The Apaches returned to the Netherlands at the end of December 2016, and the Chinook left Mali in March 2017.

General Light:
Now our air superiority can be contested. And we will have to restore it.


In this case, the Dutch general did not explain, the superiority in the air over whom the Dutchmen are going to restore.

                    maybe so, or maybe the Angles poured their talent, often thought about how abruptly, Britain became the mistress of the seas (although I think they have always been too good of themselves, remember at least the stories of “Gebena” and “Tirpitz”) after the Dutch began to communicate too closely with them politically, economically and dynastically, it seems that the Dutch dignitaries taught the ships to build and use them))

    Apparently, we are talking about building a runway in Holland: they are looking for a place by measuring the surroundings with tape measure from border to border. But the size does not fit, then Belgium is in the way, then Germany. Not to land in the sea.

    [b] We need to restore combat readiness. We performed one-sided missions. We need to invest in air missions, develop the skills of military pilots. [B] Skills are currently not enough for the pilot, we also need excellent aircraft, such as the T-50, or at least SU. fool

    The Dutch are superior only when there is not a single aircraft in another country in the air.

      judging by the quote from the Dutch general, Holland already has undoubted air superiority, BUT ... "can be challenged" and THEN it will have to be restored.
      so you can be completely calm, because there is no information about the start of anyone disputing Dutch air superiority, and this process is not fast because the country of Holland is unusually strong with its ... air superiority.
