Military Review

How many US troops lost in aero incident from 2013 year. Report

In the United States for six months, a study was conducted on counting the number of incidents with US military aviation. According to the final results, since 2013, the United States has lost 133 troops as a result of the crash (for various reasons) of airplanes and helicopters.

It is especially noted that in the last two months alone, casualties amounted to 16 military personnel in various parts of the world.

It is noted that the number of accidents in American aviation has grown by about 40% over the past 5 years. Emergencies are identified with aviation in both the Air Force and the Navy, including the aircraft of the Marine Corps.

Former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel immediately identifies the reason why the number of plane crashes in American aviation has gone up. According to Hagel, the reason for this is the reduction in the volume of the US military budget from 2013, until recently.

We stopped training as much as needed for successful flights. And this could not affect our combat readiness. This has affected some of our defense enterprises.

US Air Force General Herbert Carlisle, who in the Air Force was nicknamed "hawk":
Today we are reaping the benefits of cost reduction. If we stay on this path, then there are serious risks for the further loss of lives of military personnel.

From the report:
Researched about 5,5 thousands of accidents. 4 thousand of them occurred with the crews of airplanes and helicopters, including various types of manned aircraft: fighters, bombers, military transport workers, tankers. The remaining incidents occurred with drones. In the 2013, the accident year was 656, and in 2017 - more than 900.

    increased by about 40%
    and all because of a lack of funding. In short: Give me the money!

    As always, in which case the flight crew is always to blame ... how is it ... a piloting error ... but the fact that the technique is frank ... a product of the mammoth's life ... it is not even considered ... how is it ... done in USA...

    The 5th company "Ratibor", which was the first to go, was actually cut into meat from art. But then from the side of the plant, where just before the start of the massacre, the American flag was raised, American special forces came out to finish off the 5-ku.

    Seeing that after the art attack, specifically on the approaches to the plant, there was no one to fight with, the Yankee special forces began to chase the retreating survivors, and in a sudden excitement, they moved further forward, where they stumbled upon another company of PMCs, which is called "Karpaty ".

    As strange as it may sound, in Karpaty, it is mainly guys from Donbass who are fighting. Typically military irony. Arta did not really pat them, the guys were on the other flank, quickly regained consciousness and, seeing the Americans, gave them a fight.

    During a head-to-head collision at close range, it makes no sense to request support for art and aviation - you will die under friendly fire. They will tell you this in any tutorial. So the Americans had to fight face to face directly on the ground.

    The battle was tough and not in favor of the US Special Forces. According to a WarGonzo source, the sunk losses of the Americans amounted to 20 people. Well, I hope you understand that for spetsnaz, losing twenty soldiers is not the same as for infantry. Having received a star from Russian military personnel with Ukrainian passports, the Yankee special forces were forced to flee in panic back to the plant. In close combat, they grabbed not childishly. Greetings from the Russian World.

        Nonsense. (from).

        Don't tell me. There are many of our guys there. And they hinted to me about "serving in a foreign country."
        So it's quite real.

    if prudence does not prevail, they can take away 200 after a missile attack many times more. destroyers deploy 60 miles from the coast. and the Serians have a bastion there.

    According to the final results, since the 2013 of the year, the United States lost 133 troops as a result of the crash (for various reasons) of airplanes and helicopters.

    133 over 5 years is a lot or a little? To answer this question, you need to know the total number of troops transported by air and the total number of flight hours of crews.

    I watched as at the end of the 90's the Americans loaded supplies on their helicopter carrier standing against the wall of the pier in the port of Haifa. Chinook. request

    It would be better to count how many rusty buckets you lost. America has at least 40-year-old antiques flying around.

    When the military-political situation in the world is heating up and the military machines of many countries begin to actively flex their muscles, the accident rate increases significantly. Remember the introduction of troops into Afghanistan: the crashed Il-76 in December 79, suffocated in a tunnel on Salang. Read about the operation to free American hostages in Iran. It was just a stupidly enchanting action. Injuries in the army are always high, during exercises it increases significantly, but I am already silent about military operations.
