The United States does not have enough money for combat aircraft

Developments of the new strategic bomber B-21 Raider may stop due to lack of funding, reports the Defense News portal.


The United States does not have enough money for combat aircraft


The program to create aircraft LRS-B seriously slow even with the most favorable developments, noted in the leadership of the air force. So, the Deputy Minister of the United States Air Force Matt Donovan warned that problems with the financing of the project will begin in April of this year. The first B-21 bombers were planned to be released already in 2020, however, these dates, apparently, will move.

In 2015, Northrop Grunman was awarded a contract to create a long-range strategic bomber B-21. The Air Force plans to purchase at least 100 aircraft.

Recall, it was also reported that more than a third of the American attack aircraft A-10 Thunderbolt II will never take off again if the US leadership does not find the money to buy new wings for them.

      Yes, no ... they simply cannot agree on the correct cut of funds

        Yes, most likely someone is fighting the main piece of the pie. And to whom only crumbs. So the message that they have an army without funds is complete nonsense. They will still draw to themselves, if that.

      Well, while B2 is in the top according to the price tag. So I think the financial problem for such a project is the norm. I think the amounts are astranomic.

      They are beautiful for you. And they reminded me a couple of times of a long time dream ("neither to the village, nor to the city") of the wingless rectangular apparatus in absolute silence flying across the gloomy sky. Believe it or not. After a glance, but the photos surfaced in my memory these terrible dreams.

    And we are happy for the mattress that they don’t have enough money to develop this aircraft. The worse for them, the better for us. Axiom. yes

    With such a budget, the defense industry is lacking again. Correctly, Yakov Kedmi at Solovyov said that if we talk about corruption, then the most terrible in the American army and military-industrial complex.

    New projects of the American military-industrial complex, whether it be a bomber, or a fighter or a submarine, etc., are breaking records at the price of implementation, rising higher and higher. After 25 years of developing new weapons projects in the United States, not tens of billions of candy wrappers will cost, but hundreds, maybe thousands ...

        No ... degradation multiplied by the desire to draw us into the next arms race in order to play the scenario of the USSR.

      Is it different in Europe? Typhoon Eurofighter is more expensive than the F-35.
      But in Russia, prices do not take off? Su-57 will come to $ 100 million for sure.

        Not a fact ... the price of the SU-57 has not yet been announced. Moreover, the big question is what price will be for "internal" use ...

    They can afford to abandon the strategist. First, they have shown little in the past 40 years. Secondly, the US Air Force (if you include the Navy aviation here) is the most talked about and most technologically advanced in the world. And 10-20 years (until China takes its aircraft industry to the proper level) and will remain so. In the third, they have an excellent convention rocket "tohawk" and a bunch of hosters under it.

      At least one sensible comment. And then candy wrappers, degradation,... Sometime such a frivolous attitude to a potential adversary will make us once again a bastard. As has already happened more than once.

        Well, what is sober? Not only does a marine iron not float, it also has no weapons. This one, even if it takes off, which will be a miracle, one devil knows whether there will be appropriate weapons for him. So, wait, sir!

    Alas. if it flies, then not in one copy. As for the money. Even if you have a machine, on which we always nod, they still do not print money on the basis of "how much is needed, and we print as much." A completely real situation is that there will not be enough money (the right amount) for something and these programs are shifting "to the right." As if this is something so unusual. Our PAK YES also moved to the right, it is not known how many years. They planned to launch the “Federation” in unmanned mode in 2015, and in a manned one in 2018, now the unmanned drift is shifted to 2023. The same thing with them. The new SLBM, as well as the new ICBM, are shifting to the right. And in this they do not see tragedy. Existing systems are still sufficient to fulfill their functions ...

    They will not refuse. All their strategists are adapted for functions using the WTO. Their current B-2s are now left without cruise missiles. Change one way or another will be required. And not the “old, oak” V-52, but most likely the V-2
    The conventional Tomahawk missile is still a marine missile. Although for her there is a bunch of nostels. Of the air they have a certain number of AGM-86 EMNIP modifications С и D . But they are extremely few, And such missiles are required. And not only rockets, but also carriers

    Again, another hat, poor Americans, there is no money for development. There are no new wings to order, and somehow they so modestly kept silent about the Pentagon’s largest budget in the world.
    Well take pity on the Americans

    "print". have you forgotten that the us government needs to beg the FRS to print it, but the Rothschilds, Morgan and other stupid people still: you can’t prove the effectiveness of the development, you’ll get $ hell;)
