Israeli Air Force announced their F-35I have reached combat readiness

52
The first two F-35I (“Adir”) sat down in Israel a little less than a year ago, 12.12.16. Already then it was announced that the Air Force plans to make the aircraft operational within a year. And December 6 fighter was declared combat-ready, reports bmpd.


Israeli Air Force announced their F-35I have reached combat readiness


This status was assigned to Adiram by the results of various tests and tests known as Bikoret ha-Kshirut (“Readiness Check”).

As the commander of 140 Squadron, which operates “Adira”, Lieutenant Colonel Yotam, noted, “the test examined all aspects of the combat readiness of the aircraft, pilots and squadron, both in preparation for the flight on the ground and the performance of various tasks in the air.”



In addition, the ability of the structures leading to the Air Force to operate the F-35I in a combat situation was tested. Moreover, “to maximize the potential of the 5 aircraft generation, the Air Force had to adapt itself to the“ Adyr ”, and not vice versa,” the material says.

In 2018, another 9 fighter must arrive. Deliveries of the first 33 machines should be completed in the 2021 year.



“Declaring an aircraft combat-ready does not mean the completion of its absorption process in the Air Force, in fact, this is only the beginning. There is still a lot of testing to be done, developing tactics for various types of combat missions, training new pilots and technicians, ”the author concludes.

      It is unlikely. If F-16 / 15 fought against collisions with birds and other technical reasons, then F-35 is completely safe from this. The usual technique, albeit more advanced than its predecessors, which means that unfortunately there will be accidents.

    In the light of the fact that Israel is systematically launching missile strikes on Syrian territory, it will be interesting to see how these F-35 manifest themselves in countering Syrian air defense, which began to shoot down Israeli missiles. At the same time, I will not be surprised if Iran purchases a batch of C-400 in the near future.

      What's the point? At this time, the Syrians do not have the task of surprising someone or boasting something. Their country is broken up into dust. What kind of impressions? 6 years of war on its territory. Millions of dead and more refugees ... what are you talking about?

      and the Saudis showed the remains of at least one downed Hussite rocket?
      and then the district here stated that the patrites shot down more than a hundred missiles, although the LAS announced only 7 dozen fired missiles at them.
      although the fact that the Syrians could lie I suppose is Arabs, and this is a diagnosis.

    From this decision, these irons will not become more beautiful! As they were 4 ++ airplanes, so they remained! Here, one Israeli comrade proves that his EPR is at the level of statistical error, but what about AFAR, which constantly emits, or on Israeli airplanes there is a veneer that regulates the radiation power of the locator - the minimum is when it tickles mosquitoes and flies, and the maximum is when the moon is in the sky can I split to a white knee? ?? wassat

      Exactly. You have outlined everything perfectly.
      So on all F-35s, and not just on Israeli ones (the radar was developed by Lockheed, not Israel).

          This is not true. He has a small cruising supersonic (1.2 MAX) WITHOUT FORCING
          and at a short distance (350 km), but he does it.
          Of course, this is significantly less than that of the F-22 (1.6 MAX, 1500 km)

      And what, C-200 when it has already managed to bring down the F-35I? what
      And yes, now I would believe that such an air defense missile system as a C-200 would shoot down F-35I, whose EPR is clearly lower than the same "Sufa" (F16 Block 50 / 52 mod). And these same "Sufa" flew and bombed as wanted and when they wanted, and the Syrian air defense system was silent.

        Pendants without weapons (expended in the process) almost do not affect aerodynamics and allow you to spin more energetically. But the forms of the pregnant woman remain unchanged with both weapons and without.

        Further. It is possible to cling to the pendants upgraded with minimal changes, or even without changes, but it will be more difficult to insert otherwise into the belly. If at all possible.
        Further. It’s possible to drop everything from the suspension at any speed, but not from the hatch. Need to go to the recommended speed. You still bite your elbows and everything else you reach for.

    Now the Air Force has 9 “Adir”, a readiness check was carried out on 5 of them. In 2018, another 9 should arrive, incl. 6 will be part of the 140 Squadron, the first at the beginning of summer (deliveries of the first 33 F-35 will be completed in 2021, and all currently ordered 50 aircraft in 2024). Declaring the aircraft combat ready does not mean the completion of the process of its absorption in the Air Force, in fact this is only the beginning.
