Following the British Navy, "cannibalism epidemics" and the Air Force

56
Following the ships of the Royal fleet the British armed forces will have to "eat" their planes. According to defenseworld.net, the British Air Force is preparing to "cannibalize" Eurofighter Typhoon fighters.


In total, it is planned to use the Reduce to Produce (RTP) program on the 16 parts of Eurofighter Typhoon two-seater aircraft from the British Air Force. Such a decision will allow the Ministry of Defense to save £ 800 million (over $ 1 billion).

Following the British Navy, "cannibalism epidemics" and the Air Force


The military department indicates that in addition to direct savings on the purchase of spare parts, cancellation of aircraft will allow the British army to significantly save on the operating costs of 16 fighters. At the same time, the fighting capabilities of the British aviation should not be reduced, as the army is preparing to accept new F-35 fighters.

We remind you that earlier, due to the inability to repair ships due to the lack of parts, the British Ministry of Defense allowed them to be removed from other combat units. Such a process in the army is unofficially called "cannibalism." According to the report of the National Audit Office (National Audit Office, NAO), over the past few years, the number of units of equipment of the British Navy, which became donors of parts, has doubled, reports "Warspot"

      Then the stripes will remove the margin from the service, repair and maintenance, they will not remain in the loser. And the British, as it were, did not really engage in cannibalism laughing

            No design idea, they didn’t accept it.
            The Germans and the French remained. They kind of want to create a joint 5th generation fighter and a tank - they began to agree last year, after Trump. Maybe even before EuroNATO agree. But nevertheless, about 10-15 years, the French and Germans will go to the fighter. I wonder how their idea will advance amid US pressure with its F-35. The Germans are already being forced through. hi

        3 of them will not work, 10 pieces will have to be disposed of for each full

      Think carefully.
      It turns out that an element that has exhausted its resource will be removed from the aircraft, and replaced by the same element that has not developed a resource from another aircraft.
      It turns out that the old aircraft will be repaired with parts from a newer aircraft. Wonderful.
      Further. And what if es outdated stout at the same time several elements? Issued at the same time and having the same air raid than will repair? Some pieces of iron will be missed, while others will be in excess.

          It is good if they have 10 out of 9 pieces. XNUMX. Airplanes are a bit more complicated than Lada, and the resources there are different. I am happy from this circumstance.

        And before the collapse, in glorious Soviet times, we practiced this. If there is no spare part in the warehouse, then it was removed from the aircraft standing on the schedule in order to ensure departure for the mission. Well, upon receipt of this spare part from the manufacturer, the donor was also restored.

      Do not worry about the Germans. They will never switch to other people's planes, tanks, light armored vehicles. They are not Israel. They have enough resources to keep their own good pieces of iron. And no pressure will affect them. They are too thorough to dumb on the leash of an older brother.

          No matter. They were not allowed to develop and have their own. There were occupying units of the United States, which naturally had their own.
          Over time, NATO has changed its working style and from the American monopoly there are standards that apply in our own armament. Germany is gaining its own political and economic weight, no matter how much the Americans want to belittle them.

          Technology, science, even the enemy, does not develop evenly. It would be ridiculous to say that all competitors are improving their products, following the track-in-track with the advanced. It is useless to catch up with German dentists hopelessly ahead.

              He and the Leopards, after all, have well-known plans. But the security in which they are there and the understanding that no one is threatening them can be done together with the allies. That is, by shifting the costs to them. It’s a known practice to hide behind friends.
              Russia, in this case, is one. Fortunately for us. Therefore, the mobilization of all opportunities allows not to concede.

    I read that they are fighting to preserve populations of cannibals. Like, the children of nature are all very important. (They suspect that the Angles of hope nourish that the cataclysms during cataclysms can very much harm humanity).
    So, it looks like the cannibalism gene has mutated and is transferred by airborne droplets. And right to the brain. With which it is worth congratulating.
