The US is increasing fighter aircraft purchases


As explained by the publication, of the additional funds allocated for the purchase of aircraft, 1,7 billion dollars will be spent on the purchase of F-16 fighter jets in excess of the 35 plan, of which eight F-35A, two F-35B and six F-35C. In addition, there is an option for six more F-35 aircraft (two for each version, with 5 spending millions for testing). With regard to additional purchases of fourth-generation aircraft, detailed data are not available.

Starting in 2020, the United States Air Force (USAF) is considering the possibility of deploying additional F-35A (including up to 24 variants of Block 3F) with a dislocation based on Eglin. Aircraft of this version that are in service with the 58 squadron are considered the oldest among the F-35, their number is 25 machines (software version Block 2B).

Previously, plans were made to deploy all three versions of the F-59 fighter jets at the Eglin air base in Eglin for training purposes, but the Marine Corps transferred its F-35B aircraft to Beaufort Air Base in South Carolina. In addition, in the 35 year in Eglin, the US Navy’s F-2019C fighter pilot training program is closed, thereby opening up the possibility for the United States Air Force to deploy 35 F-34A fighter jets.

      The ocean did not save them from collapse following the results of the Cold War, in the late 80s, and now even more so. The collapse of the US imperialists was scientifically substantiated by scientists from the Institute of Marxism of Leninism, scientists from the Institute of the USA and Canada. This country was caustically ridiculed by the political observer Zorin 40 years ago . And recently she got from Hochmach Zadornov. lol

              I wonder what you and people like you will say when the new items go to the troops in the series? Most likely you will start crying about the social sphere and damned Putin.
              It’s apparently cool, first to ruin the country, silently agreeing with the results of Belovezhskaya Pushcha, then in the 90, silently and joyfully watch the country die, and now sit smartly and write about hats.
              Pure hypocrisy. But Putin is to blame for everything, right? The fact that for 10 years the country was in a comatose state, it doesn’t matter .... it is important that you give everything to you now, not tomorrow. and talk about hats and cartoons. Or do you think it was necessary to lay out all the documentation on the new weapons to the world community, but is it better to bring everything to Washington yourself?
              Have you created at least something worthwhile for your country that would give you the right to talk about hats and cartoons?

                When the units and divisions will be equipped with them. And not when they are promised to put them on the Internet later. It is difficult to scare partners with promises.

                  These promises, as you say here, are somewhat sobering up very hot heads in Washington, which means that they work for the benefit of the fact that there will be no war yet. This is one of the techniques of the INFORMATION war.

Earlier, with the "scoop" there was production (some, no, but there was), there were specialized educational institutions where they trained personnel (workers, engineers, designers, etc.), who after training went to production where they received experience and qualifications and The BEST went to the "defense industry" (such is "natural selection"). TODAY, the defense industry operates "in three shifts" ... And what will happen tomorrow? (USE - 10 years)

        The collapse of imperialism has already occurred .. \\ Empires in the classical form did not remain, almost all overseas territories gained independence from the metropolitan countries.
        A change in socio-political pharmacy is also inevitable .. Ask the almighty feudal lords where is their power?
        If the US state deals with the calculation of domestic debts - collapse is inevitable. A huge amount of money thrown at once will cause hyperinflation .. with subsequent state autonomy.

    In addition, in 2019, a training program for F-35C fighter pilots of the U.S. Navy is closed in Aeglin in 34, thereby opening up the possibility of placing an additional 35 F-XNUMXA of the U.S. Air Force there.
    And why is this naval program closed? And yes, does the Pentagon have an analogue of our "Thread"? Judging by the number of aviks, there should be more than one or two of them. Or do they have a different training method? Educate, come on, illuminate my dark knowledge and they will become saints.

      To hell with them Nitka, they have another start, with a catapult. Sour with round should not be confused.

        The start is different, but the finish line? And in general, before lecturing, you would first familiarize yourself with the material. Please, Captain 2nd rank engineer P. Grinin,
        At the second stage, future naval pilots get the necessary skills to take off and land on a training aircraft carrier. After one preparatory and one training flight with an instructor, they perform self-landing exercises on A field model of the aircraft carrier’s landing deck, which is an airfield runway equipped with a braking system. After several practice landings on such a runway, they land on the Lexington training aircraft carrier. Initially, two training flights are carried out with a "touch-and-go" maneuver, that is, the aircraft, going to land, touches the landing deck of an aircraft carrier and takes off again (afterburner). At the next stage of preparation, landings are performed on the deck of an aircraft carrier using a braking system (the pilot releases a landing hook, which engages in one of the brake cables). It is believed that after making eight landings on an aircraft carrier, the pilot can undergo increased training.

          The difference between ours and their decks is precisely the slope for take-off, I talked about this, and about the cable of which to sail, the landings are almost the same, well, of course, with its own specifics.

    What else do they have to buy?
    But nothing. F-22, as it were, but it is not particularly modified and will probably not be built in the future. Therefore, only the F-35 of the modern and stuffed with electronics will be purchased and modified for life.
    All other generations 4+ and below, except for modifications, are unlikely to be built.

    So far, this only confirms that no changes are anticipated in US aggressive policy. Americans still rely on power and hegemony in governing the world.

    Sailors began to actively buy F-35S for aircraft carriers.

    Conversation about nothing.
    This cannot in any way threaten us from any of the serious states.
    Those. start some sort of small adventure with disastrous consequences that they can!
