The United States thought about the destruction of terrorists cheap fighters

85
The US Air Force is considering the formation of international squadrons from low-cost fighter jets, which will be used to attack targets of terrorists in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, writes Wall Street Journal.


Creation of squadrons from relatively inexpensive aircraft would allow US fighter jets and their allies to be deployed in areas where their capabilities are more necessary. For example, representatives of Congress and the US military believe that high-tech aircraft would be useful for "containment missions" in Europe and Asia, as well as help to cope with the critical shortage of US air force pilots.

The United States thought about the destruction of terrorists cheap fighters


As the US moves its fleet to new advanced fighter aircraft, such as the F-22 and F-35, they have to deal with more and more issues related to the cost of using these aircraft. Thus, the acquisition of one such fighter costs the Pentagon 150 million dollars, and another 35 thousand dollars per hour is spent to destroy such planes of the terrorist camp.

Now that Russia and China are investing in their armed forces and are becoming more and more efficient, the United States faces an additional problem when deploying a limited number of secret military aircraft to deter so-called competitors, the newspaper writes.

To counter the terrorists planned to use light and cheap aircraft. Speech, in particular, can go about light Brazilian-made Super Tucano turboprop attack aircraft, which the US purchased for Afghanistan.

          According to Wikipedia, this turbo-prop engine has a toucan. And by the way, under the fuselage, between the wings, the ball of the electron-optical guidance station is visible. So it is quite possible to use GBU and other gimmicks, for example, “hellfires”.

        Yeah, you have to fly and bomb three fuel trucks on the TU-160. And uncle Vanya will pay pensions to the elderly. The Americans thought correctly. If you believe our specialists, then REB has reached a certain perfection and can crush the frequencies at which anti-aircraft missiles work. Our planes in Syria shot down a little and thank God. And the cost of an hour of flight and the costs are very large. It's like a gun on sparrows. I think ours are also thinking about this issue. It was not without reason that they began to write that the Yak-Xnumx could be used as a light attack aircraft, even the SR-Xnumx, and that is, a proposal to use it as an attack aircraft to combat gang formations.

          EW has reached a certain perfection and can crush the frequencies at which anti-aircraft missiles operate.


          In portable passive "head", there is nothing to crush. Now there is nothing to catch the armored helicopter, only to scare the cows. Attack aircraft and helicopters flew over a more or less serious enemy. The last Ukrainians were probably those who tried it. They don’t want to check anymore.

          The American idea is very robust. The departure cost of a modern attack aircraft even of the Su-25 type is not comparable to a simple turboprop airplane. And if this airplane has the ability to heap bombs, missiles and light shells in heaps, then he has no price. Especially in the absence of anti-aircraft defense. And against the rifleman - armor as in the IL-2 or IL-10. That's just the Yak-130 is unlikely to be an airplane of this class - too high-tech, although, I believe that it would not hurt to make a light attack aircraft from it.

    I hope our pilots are not "international" enough. And their genealogy is “evil empire”, 1st place, ahead of ISIS, in danger to the United States. They even say that .... they are not tolerant.

                Clear. Out of respect for you, I fall silent. But it’s not that the flag, even the phone number does not change. I have the honor.

    The biplanes of Farman and the Wright Brothers will go into business soon. You don’t need to learn from them at all - they are so cheap that you will have to spend more dough to drive to the airport and land than to build a new one in numerous bed shops.

    The Americans follow the path of “Tirpitz” and “Yamato” - so expensive super linkors that Germany and Japan could not risk them in real battles, but in the end they lost them without any effect on the course of the war.
    So we are waiting for the next-generation miracle plane and at the price of 1015 lard bucks, which will be the pride of the Pentagon and the United States Congress, but which will be too expensive to fight.

    To think is not to do! Why piston airplanes in the mountains? Did they learn how to hang? It’s easier for them to put normal helicopters there!

    Now they even plan to use someone else’s aviation in conflict? With the corresponding arrangement of costs to solve their problems and without risking either equipment or pilots. Here are the cunning crooks

    Well, they can and will use someone else’s equipment, as well as pilots, although they have their own aircraft of this type. But cooking your own is long and expensive. It’s cheaper to actually use pilots from countries that use such aircraft and have experience in counterguerrilla activities

    I will add that for the states this makes a lot of sense, because on cheaper aircraft (read non-jet) you can find many pilots of civil aviation. Learn and fight.

    And I agree with that. The reserve of pilots will be significant.

    By the way, I don’t think that using KOIN airplanes against the same terrorists in the Middle East is such a silly idea. Especially if you know that the intelligence component will be involved. And to get into a light attack aircraft, which will approach the target at a height of 10-15 meters in the desert and strike a target with the same unguided or guided missiles - this must be a demigod. Track the direction, deflect the MANPADS or machine gun, and even hit the target, which is low-contrast for the GOS MANPADS - this is somewhere at the level of fiction

    They had no losses, because they fought in the jungles of South America against drug dealers, in the conditions of the jungle of heavily small-caliber anti-aircraft defense, the trees interfere and it is easier to quietly pick up.

    In the presence of the "Warthog" to invent some fighters to fight terrorists ... Some kind of clinic. The attack aircraft solve these problems, and they already have an attack aircraft.

    I do not argue. But drug traffickers are not bastards. MANPADS certainly have. In addition, the Super Tucano was supplied not only to Brazil. But also to the countries of the Middle East, more precisely, Western Asia. And there is no jungle

    A-10 are in limbo. Either they will be written off, or not. And it’s not always necessary to drive a car with a load capacity of several tons. Sometimes a piston (turboprop) aircraft is enough. For one, two or three jeeps to drive a jet attack aircraft is not always profitable

    Why were blown away? Each vegetable has its own time. Somewhere a drone, somewhere jet, somewhere a piston (turboprop)

    Such aircraft would be useful for border guards: to provide tactical protection of the air borders - from probes, paragliders, balloons, etc., for which serious aviation operate - like guns on sparrows.
    By the way, I believe that the lack of light aviation at the border made it possible to carry out an action with the passage of Rust. Otherwise, he would be dealt with even in the border zone.

    Will not work. A cheap fighter can be made, but
    here cheap pilots do not happen nowadays. Knock down such a bird
    easy. A pilot will die, two - a cry to the whole world. And landing all the cheap aircraft for fun.
    Only in an unmanned version can pass.
