In the United States announced a decrease in the combat readiness of the Navy and the ILC


As stated by the representative of the Accounts Chamber (SP), John Pendleton, speaking in the US Senate, the combat readiness of the Navy and Marine Corps does not reach the 80% mark set by the Pentagon. Specialists of the joint venture revealed a lot of problems concerning not only the state of military equipment, but also the training of flight personnel. The shortage of fighter aircraft pilots for the US Navy was 26%, and for the KMP - 24%.

The combat readiness of the US Navy aircraft and the Marine Corps is significantly limited due to the aging technology, difficulties with maintenance and supply. Flight training is also considered unsatisfactory. Moreover, the reduction in combat readiness of equipment and pilots has been observed since 2011, and continues to decline steadily, despite the billions of dollars allocated to maintain the readiness of aircraft for flight. And all this is explained quite simply, the more airplanes fly, the more wear and tear on equipment and less time to repair. Moreover, the fleet of the Navy and the CMP is largely outdated.

It is reported that the readiness for combat sorties of aircraft F / A-18E / F does not exceed 66%. Replacing the aircraft, in the opinion of auditors, with the newest F-35 will also lead to nothing, since they have the same problems, and their combat readiness is even lower. According to the Pentagon, in March and June of last year, the naval and F-35 Navy and KMP were able to take to the air and perform at least one combat mission only in 52% of cases. The level of combat readiness was only 15%.

        The more planes are built, the more pilots and technicians will be required, the more money will be needed for their maintenance, and so on in everything. The increase in costs entails an even greater increase in hyperbole. What is needed here is not an increase, but an optimization. "But they do not understand this. To do this, we must go through our 90s.

          Yes. In general, our society, of course, is much more corrupt than the American one (unfortunately), but it is in the field of arms that our elite makes sure that money goes to the left at a minimum, because their (the political elite of the Russian Federation) lives depend on the combat capability of the Armed Forces. But in the States, on the contrary - in general, society is transparent like a baby's tear (well, almost :)), but in the area of ​​the military budget, according to the same report of their own "Accounts Chamber", about half of the budget is stolen every year, lol

    it does not reach the level set by the Pentagon at 80% ... F-35 in March-June last year were able to fly into the air and perform at least one combat mission in only 52% of cases. The level of combat readiness was only 15%.
    At the same time, they threaten the whole world, and the president talks on Twitter about the most "powerful and invincible ..." The ambassadors poke at our Tu-160s through their lips, not understanding at all what is happening in their Armed Forces. Probably focused exclusively on the "data" of Hollywood. And this is with such a military budget.

      Well, so far the US army is still really the strongest on the planet, but the Russian Federation and China are reducing the distance at an enormous pace. If the trends continue, then next year the Russian Federation will overtake (!) The United States according to the Global Firepower Index. True, according to the same trends, China will overtake us in 2021 and we will return to 2nd place. The United States will be only 3. This does not take into account nuclear, if with it, then of course China will not overtake us and we will be the first, taking into account nuclear weapons. Let's see if this forecast comes true. But if not even in 2019, then in the first half of the 20s - it will definitely happen

    The decrease in their combat readiness is offset by the expansion of NATO ?!

    These lines came to mind after reading:

    "Only gold, gold - lips whispered.
    Only gold, gold - the masts groaned
    And the fierce wind tore the tight tackles, But the empty holds thirsty for gold! "


    And the holds are not empty. They can pull to the bottom. wink

    Well, 66% is generally good for F / A-18E / F, I don’t think we have higher ... but the F-35, of course, does not look very good))

    There have recently been several articles on the topic "if tomorrow is war", where the authors carried out the idea that we have no ice with personnel and cadres in the troops either. Lack of personnel and insufficient level of training. This is about pilots and about "courses for junior lieutenants", and about contract soldiers with conscripts (one comrade wrote that conscripts are sometimes better than contract soldiers). In general, as in the film "Deja vu" "their intelligentsia is ready for war, and ours?"

      Unfortunately, this is not just tsiferki: objectively, the lack of military specialists is a consequence of the defeat of the military education system arranged by Serdyukov ten years ago. Because only the extreme id will take away buildings and land from the Zhukovsky Academy at the M-ve, and he will drop the Academy (without professors !!!) into Baltimore into tents. By the way, the liberals do the same with civil science in the capitals.

      Sorry, can I give you a stick? For me, it’s better to have a bad world than a good war, what was enough for me. No, I won’t raise my paws to the top, but I’m not going to throw planes with slippers either. It is very dangerous not to overestimate or overestimate the readiness of opponents, but it is also difficult to find the middle.

    I don’t know what% of the combat readiness of the Navy we have, but in general, the Armed Forces figure is about 93% and continues to grow. If the Americans have the most elite and combat-ready form of the Armed Forces, their combat readiness is only 80%, then it’s clear why the States are rapidly losing superpower status
