The United States will send F-12A X-NUMX fighters to an air base in Japan


In January, the United States transferred the F-35 stealth fighter to Japan to the military base in Iwakuni (Yamaguchi Prefecture), initiating the deployment of these aircraft outside of American territory. According to the Kyodo agency, US plans included the deployment of X-NUMX F-16 fighters at a military base in Iwakuni, starting in January 35. They are intended to replace the outdated F / A-2017 and AV-18 Harrier fighters.

As previously reported, the Ivakuni city authorities approved the deployment of the F-35 fighter jets located there at the 2016 meeting in December at a meeting of the city council. Consideration of this issue was postponed due to the accident in early December of the American F / A-18 fighter, assigned to the Iwakuni base, reports RIA News

      and why they do it just do not understand, they are allies. Why do not you advise menacingly to move eyebrows to Belarusians for example?

    To the question of the 35s. And yet in the United States are not fools. Since they are betting on this plane, it means it is worth something.

        Well, I'm not talking about money. This is a separate story and should be discussed separately.

          You have already been told, all this from one collection entitled "The Story of How the USA defeated Hitler in Star Wars, how the Vietnamese attacked the 6th Fleet, how Hussein poisoned the world from a test tube, how Gaddafi tried to make a fake gold dinar from gold and how Russia attacked Ukraine "
          They see this your invisible F-35 on radars, but do not shoot down (do not give the command to shoot down) so as not to lose all their savings and real estate abroad ...

            I mean that you should not underestimate the enemy. How many examples of hatred led to defeat. An objective assessment is needed, and it will appear only in a real clash.

    I still don’t understand. Is the 35th acting as a group or is the 35th leading a link of some other fighters and is something like a brain?

      Something like this I heard about 22. Ahead in the lower echelon 22 with AFAR in passive mode, and a little behind 18 in the upper echelon. 22 shines, and 18 shoots. And all this in a single information field.

    12 F-35A bomber fighters from the USA arrived at an air base in Japan. The Japanese met everyone with flowers and folk dances, presented gifts .................

    It seems that the Yankees decided to try the latest aircraft in combat with minimal risk for them. Weak air defense of the North Koreans will increase the prestige and pay back the costs of these aircraft.

    Young Kim Americans were afraid. There is no doubt that ours has already deployed an answer. A couple of regiments of the Su-35 were hidden on Sakhalin. We work men soldier

    Gradually, F-35s begin to fill the American military bases, replacing the 4th generation.

    There were few problems at the air base in Caden. The Pentagon decided to create at least 12 new, intractable problems for its personnel. Not otherwise than by secret order of the Great and Terrible Putin ...
