The US Air Force plans to buy a batch of the latest version of F-15X fighter jets

106
Despite the statement by the US Department of Defense about the complete abandonment of the purchase of fourth-generation aircraft to increase the share of fifth aircraft, the command of the US Air Force decided to purchase 12 fighter aircraft of the latest version of the F-15X, reports "Warspot" with reference to thedrive.com portal.


The US Air Force plans to buy a batch of the latest version of F-15X fighter jets


The decision to purchase the newest version of the F-15X fighters was made against the background of the obsolescence of the F-15C / D fighter jets, which are in service with the US National Guard. According to estimates of the Air Force Command, the modernization of the aircraft will require significant investments, and the capabilities of the fifth-generation F-35 aircraft for the needs of the National Guard are considered redundant. The upgraded F-16 fighters in service with the US Air Force also did not fit, since adopting them into service with the National Guard would require re-equipment of ground services for them, and this is again a waste of considerable money.

Considering all the above, the US Air Force Command decided to purchase X-NUMX new F-12X Advanced Eagle, differing from the previous version of F-15 Eagle by installing new radar and other equipment, as well as the ability to carry more 15 air-to-air missiles. The acquisition of the aircraft is scheduled from 20 year.

    F-15X is thought to be used as support for F-22. The machine is good, only the modernization resource has already been exhausted in essence.
    The new American Boeing F-15X fighter will receive a record number of air-to-air missiles, The Drive 27 reported in July.




    Now the fighter is capable of carrying 22 missiles. However, in the future they want to equip it with 8 air-to-air missiles and 28 guided high-precision GBU-39 bombs.

    In comparison, the Saudi Arabian F-15SA can only carry 10-like missiles.

    In addition, it will be distinguished from the majority of F-15 by the structure of the internal wing, the APG-82 radar with an active phased antenna array, and some elements of the control system.

    The fighter will be equipped with an electronic video surveillance system and an infrared search and tracking system.

    The pilot of the new F-15X will receive a helmet with a second-generation JHMCS display.

    At the same time, the cost per hour of a fighter’s flight will be $ 27 thousand, while the operating costs of other models are estimated at $ 42 thousand.

    The cost of the F-15X itself will be about $ 65 million.

        This is for the National Guard, that is, fighter-interceptors, or something. F-22 is needed to gain air supremacy, F-35 to suppress air defense systems, while an improved F-15 is not a bad option to protect the country's sky. IMHO.

              Correctly consider. 20 missiles X 12 aircraft in squadrons = salvo of 240 missiles. If they release them at once, then it is virtually impossible to dodge the attack. Where the Fu-22 hit with its 8 missiles

                  And how many are in service? And don't forget there are 31 interceptors, not offensive weapons. If he is armed with a "Dagger", then the launch will be made before the interception zone, and yes, he will get away from the missiles. Here we talk about the fact that the F-15 will withstand the Tu-22M3, Tu-160, Tu-95, 24, 25 and 34 dryers and others like them. Imagine that there is a conquest of air superiority. 6 needles against 12 of ours (the Su-27 or MiG-29 family). A collision course and a similar salvo. Ours will not be sweet. You need to be ready for this

            The MiG-31 and Tu-128 are even larger, but this does not prevent them from being considered a REALLY interceptor.
            The main thing here is the effectiveness in intercepting missiles and bombers, and, given the relatively low speed (2100 km / h) and range, as well as the practical ceiling of 15000 km, the F-16, its interception efficiency is so-so ...

        The US Air Force does not want these aircraft. Air Force spokesman Heather Wilson said in September that the Air Force is not interested in acquiring the fourth-generation F-15X, preferring instead to invest in expanding its fifth-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighters fleet. "Currently we are 80 percent equipped with fourth-generation airplanes and 20 percent with fifth-generation airplanes, ”Wilson said in an interview with News News on September 5. And we want to bring the upgrade to 50%, which means we will not buy 4-generation airplanes. The idea for the new aircraft comes from senior Pentagon executives, such as Deputy Secretary of Defense Pat Shanahan, and not from the Air Force who will fly these planes. In this case, the United States looks at Russia. We are able to equate positions with 4-generation aircraft modernizations not bad Fifth-generation U.S. aircraft, and in some ways superior to them. In addition, American military analysts criticized him and questioned his ability to withstand modern systems in Russia and China. Namely, it is invisible to air defense systems and awkward with such heavy weapons. by terrorists, it will be a very expensive aircraft. However, Israel is interested in this aircraft, which wants to replace the purchase of the F-35 with the F-15 X.https: //www.businessinsider.com/pentagon-is-eyeing-new-f-15x -fighter-jets-the-air-force-doesnt-want-2018-12

And do you also know the pilots sometimes wear the outfit of the so-called RPA (the duty officer for receiving and releasing the flying aircraft), and so there you sit and see a lot of different sides for a day and see a lot of different sides, I really don't know how the DRL indicators differ from the air defense systems, in my opinion they are also in Africa, whether Boeing or Airbus or Tu22m3 marks are violet, the only speed of movement and the detection range, it is clear that Tupolev at an altitude of 5-6 km radar "sketches" much earlier than the turntable at 300m.

                        Of course, something can be determined from the marks: from a large target, the mark is brighter, at the meter station - the largest. And so - in terms of speed, flight level, flight route, which aerodromes are nearby ... And of course, radio reconnaissance - no target flies without radio communication, and another signature - radar, altimeter, recognition system ... This is a complex work of KP calculations different levels. And the operator VIKO has limited possibilities in this. But that which can, should distinguish.

                I wanted to ask you about something else. "We are taught to identify by the label" - your words, it became interesting HOW? As an example, I gave IKO P18 - there the marks are the same in size, regardless of the type of aircraft (the board is on the track, and it is not clear that this is a Boeing, a watermelon, a superjet). It became interesting how it is possible to determine the type of board with the transponder turned off? This is not an idle question. About 2 years ago, training of air defense systems was carried out in Ulan-Ude and the Kansk IAP. A pair of Tu22m3 went for the target. A couple of moments31, together with the calculations of the beeches, was supposed to "overwhelm" them, and the fighters were directed not by the OBUShniki, but by the missile men, and they began to direct not them at us, but at them !!! That is, as I understand it, the marks on the IKO did not say anything to them - 2 marks each, the speeds are approximately equal, the question is if you know why they could not? Didn't you teach? Or is it now preferred to the operator of the ACS?

        Loss of consciousness from the failure of an unreliable on-board oxygen generation system (OBOGS) that works in automatic mode together with a high-altitude suit from overloads. on virtually all aircraft, resulting in hypoxia and loss of consciousness. In Russia, in addition to the KS-129 base system, the KS-50 oxygen system was also developed for the T-50 aircraft. Compared to the KS-129 base system, the KS-50 system has less weight and higher reliability due to the use of a duplicated gas analysis system. The composition of the KS-50 includes an automatic pressure regulator AD-17, which has a PPK anticipatory pressurization mechanism that is triggered by an electrical signal from the on-board ICS issued in 1 second. before the start of the overload.

            The BR cannot support any speed. First, it accelerates until the fuel burns out, flies (Iskander) along a low ballistic trajectory (called a quasi-ballistic), and then slows down in the atmosphere. The air launch iskander (aka Dagger) accelerates to a maximum of 6-7 MAX. And then it is braked about the atmosphere to supersonic.

    Let's pretend that we believed that the penguin is redundant ....
    Anyway, there are many where their swamp will be praised.
    We calmly do our job, and then we'll see .... or we won’t see, it’s not important.

    A good aircraft, by the way, and the potential for mobilization are enormous. We think all fools in the States? Where would they be now ...

    F-15X Advanced Eagle, differing from the previous version of the F-15 Eagle by installing new radars and other equipment, as well as the ability to carry more than 20 air-to-air missiles

    12 fighters is of course the number that needs to be discussed, what they are, what not

    Su-27s are actively upgrading, and on others they are installing an automatic Cobra system - avoiding enemy missiles without the participation of a pilot

    "Cobra" is a gift for the enemy, because it reduces speed and angular displacement. In a real battle, it is unnecessary and even harmful. Suitable only for air shows.
