In the USA, they announced a record on the F-35B fighter. The press service of the Pendleton military base says a record-breaking short time for reloading and refueling an aircraft with ammunition after striking a naval target.


In the United States announced the record set by F-35B


The F-35B Lightning II aircraft took off from the USS Wasp universal landing ship and struck at a target that was marked at sea with a red inflatable buoy (ball). The strike was carried out using GBU-32 and GBU-12 Paveway II laser bombs.

After using the payload, the aircraft belonging to the US Marine Corps returned to the ship, where it was refueled and loaded with ammunition again. Next, the plane was sent to strike at a sea surface target.

During the attack, the 5 generation fighter also used the GAU-22 air gun, which allows you to shoot from 4's barrels with a rate of fire of about 3,3 thousand rounds per minute. Earlier in the United States, it was stated that the use of this gun causes significant vibration, which is transmitted to the dashboard and leads to distortion of the visualized data.

It was noteworthy that in the States even such a training was associated with the "concentration of the US military on a possible confrontation with Russia and China." In particular, such an interpretation was proposed in the publication Business Insider.

At what distance from the UDC Wasp were the targets and how long it took the F-35B to refuel and load ammunition, is not reported.

      The plane is also important, which is more convenient and easier to maintain. The faster the pit stop with equal command

      the only lack of the presence of a temporary misfire ... WHERE THE NUMBERS ???? maybe due to the fact that it is invisible, more precisely, hardly noticeable?

      He returned to the ship, where he was refueled and loaded with ammunition again.

      And what is the volume of ammunition and fuel and lubricants, were there more aircraft under loading? Many questions arise, because to refuel a completely solitary aircraft in a free hangar or on deck by a trained team of technicians is one thing, but if there is a mass departure, then what’s the record?

    I'm afraid that the F-35 will not have a second attempt to refuel and replenish ammunition. If the conflict is with equal strength, a rival.

    To the fullest!
    Five miles to the left
    Five miles to the right

    Well, just - bravo!
    Filled ammo
    Flooded the solariums,
    And very fast
    And again - bravo!

      No one noticed that the f-35B is firing a gun, which it does not have, at least a 4-barrel GAU-22.

      If only outboard.

    And from our "universal" landing ships, perhaps a couple of MI-8s will take off. Where are our vertical take-off fighter aircraft and their delivery vehicles to "anywhere in the world"? "Calibers", of course, are good ......, but aircrafts, too, are not bad.

    Record-breaking short reload and ammunition loading times
    Did they really think that advertising for an airplane is not enough so they decided to "give birth to" records? Then they would enlighten how much ammunition needs to be loaded, how much kerosene to fill in t / d, after which they gave the numbers how much was actually loaded and refueled at the "record".

    The record of the team of technicians (meaning preparation for the re-flight) is complete CRAZY .... you can "prepare" by refueling and charging with gases and ammunition ... but skipping the inspection work that is mandatory in aviation, like everyone else what is written in the regulations .... and if only 1 plane is being prepared !!!! laughing and if there is a real use of aviation and preparation for repeated flights is carried out on 20 -25 aircraft ???? stuck in
    1. Fueling
    2. in preparation for the use of ammunition,
    3. the inability to simultaneously refuel special. liquids and gases many planes at once ....
    Another amerovskaya crap ... Ours offered amers participation in the tank biathlon, "Aviadarts" 2019 !!!! Refused !!!! laughing laughing For the whole world ... they don’t want to liquid themselves ... and they are afraid of the true display of their advertised equipment ...

    Not at all like that. The main thing in this matter is the design amenities for quick change and reloading of weapons. The presence of numerous and well-designed devices for this. Good organization and preparedness of lodgements, racks, with everything you need for a specific flight mission. It is known that a set of tools also depends on the task. And, of course, the service staff training.
    No matter how they trained the service staff, but if for this you need to disassemble a half-plane, then nothing good will come of it.
