US Air Force redeployed B-2 Spirit to Hawaii in the Pacific

18
The US Air Force command redeployed the B-2 Spirit strategic stealth bombers to Hawaii, from where they make training flights over the Pacific Ocean. September 14 B-2 first landed on Wake Island, which in the future will be used as an airfield "fast refueling", writes "RG" with reference to The Drive.


US Air Force redeployed B-2 Spirit to Hawaii in the Pacific


Previously, B-2 used only four sites, where all the conditions were prepared for them to protect the weather from the gentle stealth cover: the native Whiteman airfield in Missouri, the Andersen airbase in Guam, Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and British Ferford. According to the publication, the temporary deployment of bombers in Hawaii surprised many, as there are simply no shelters for B-2. The B-2 landing at the former American military base on Wake Island, abandoned since 2006, caused even greater surprise, where it is planned to deploy a refueling station.

According to the publication, the US Air Force command fulfills a new US doctrine aimed at rapid deployment in places where there are no US military bases, because Wake Island has an important strategic purpose - it is thousands of kilometers closer to China than Hawaii in 4. Although the main air base on Guam is located even closer to the border of the PRC, but it is within the reach of Chinese ballistic missiles.

    The Chinese are threatened not to be buzzing about sanctions. Let's see what China will answer. It seems the monkey is uncomfortable to sit on a tree, the trunk has already been set on fire, you need to be determined. hi

    By the way, in Hawaii (and also in Alaska), a number of seismologists predict a catastrophic earthquake by the end of the year that can destroy all life in these areas. So it's time for the picket fighters to hide their flyers in hangars and not to engage in "quick refueling" jumps.

        Vague doubts torment me! The Japanese suddenly abruptly began to run into us about the Kuril Islands, and then there was an earthquake, Fukushima! And they took care of their problems. Coincidence? I do not think (Kiselev)

              There are big doubts about this. Rather, they prefer to split their forehead.

                While Trump steers, we do not need to do anything, he himself does not cope badly. Elostone? No, we don’t know what you mean. hi

          Nonsense, even hypothetically, why use weapons on the Wishlist of the Japanese, the dog barks, the caravan goes on. Especially with the consequences of radiation contamination of the Pacific Ocean + a conveyor belt of used second-hand drowned cars in the Far East

    Have they run out of tankers? They gathered to plant such a colossus for refueling at a poorly adapted airfield. Or they decided to break them.

    Hmm-I-I ... The author's knowledge shines straight. In fact, Guam, Wake, and Hawaii are within the reach of the PLA's Second Artillery ICBMs. And even - the main continental part of the United States. wink hi

      The basis of China’s nuclear arsenal is, nevertheless, the BRDS. This, apparently, was meant by the author.
      The Chinese are pragmatic. It is enough for them to "squeeze" the USA out of the western part of the Pacific
      ocean to "assert itself" :))))

        Well - if you consider it purely quantitatively - then the basis of the PRC nuclear arsenal is the OTR. In fact, the Chinese groupings of ICBMs and infantry fighting ballistic missiles are roughly comparable in numbers. At the same time, the ICBM grouping is superior to the BMD grouping in terms of the number of nuclear warheads and total megatonnage. hi
