F-35 proved to be during the "carpet" bombing

104
American aviation with the participation of the latest F-35 aircraft, it launched a massive attack on Iraqi territory on September 10. High-precision ammunition proved to be excellent during this "carpet" bombardment, according to The War Zone.




The corresponding video was laid out by the Pentagon. As indicated, the target was the island of Canus, located on the Tigris. 36 tons of bombs were dropped on its surface in an attempt to “deny ISIS [banned in the Russian Federation] the ability to hide in dense vegetation”. The island, as explained, was a transit point for the militants.

At the same time, it is not clear exactly what goals this operation achieved, in which F-15E and F-35 took part.

Following the airstrikes, a ground clearance operation was carried out by the 2th Iraqi MTR battalion

- noted in the press release.

According to The War Zone, the video presented by the military department contains signs of the use of high-precision weapons: the ammunition "lies" at an almost equal distance from each other. At the same time, GBU-31 / B guided bombs were seen in the frames, each of which weighs approximately 900 kg. That is, approximately 40 of this type of ammunition was dropped.

    Polygon? 40 pcs. 900 kg of precision munitions to destroy bushes on an island in the middle of a river?
    Do they have simple "cast iron"? Well, the rich ... Well, the bad ...

        It is good to cut the bushes with such a brush cutter. And how many grandmas will you cut them? But the most expensive ammunition and aircraft. What ammunition dumped there is another big question.

          But precision carpet bombing? This is something new on the collective farm.

          Watch the video and the idea makes sense. Suppose you need to iron a certain area of ​​arbitrary shape (in this case, an island) with a minimum amount of ammunition, without spilling anything past. For greater clarity, you can imagine that you need to erase a couple of quarters of a certain city from the ground in which the enemies are seated, without hooking on the adjacent residential areas.

          Ideally, it is necessary to ammunition available strictly within this area uniformly with a given interval (depending on the radius of destruction). Obviously, with uncontrolled bombs, this will not work out so accurately: it will be somewhere empty, somewhere dense, somewhere past. But the managed ones will clearly and accurately cover everything that is needed without missing a speck and not hooking the surroundings.

              1. MLRS still need to be delivered to the required distance, which is not always easy / possible. Plus it's a long time.
              2. MLRS will not be able to cover only the required area (like this island), something in the neighborhood will still hook.

                With unsaturated defense? F 35 is not a bomber. This is true. At least not for these purposes. It would be more serious than the goal, you know. Yes 35 e is most likely effective in conjunction with a UAV.
                PS. On the other hand, training is not bad.

      Most likely the shelf life has expired - they were "disposed of" at the same time conducting exercises in this type of tactical application.

        Napalm in the 80's was banned.
        But the tool is very effective, because it sticks to everything, burns well and even oxygen actively burns, replacing it with carbon monoxide.

    An interesting use of precision munitions. Carpet bombing, in other words, total destruction in a certain area. It would be understandable to use when PRECISE, when it is dangerous to use it in cities where it is IMPOSSIBLE nearby ..... And you can scatter in the meadow both ordinary, much cheaper, and no less destructive old ones, released back in World War I ..... Apparently, their military strategists were already quite mindset there.

      Heh heh heh ... the famous Forestall fire turned out to be so large-scale precisely because AB was supplied with old-style bombs that had lain for 20 years in the tropics, and which had only one road to disposal. The gunsmiths were afraid to lower them into the cellars - and hung them under the first wave. And the old explosive did not tolerate heating (unlike the new one, which lasted for at least 10 minutes) - and the very first bomb exploded less than two minutes after the start of the fire and wiped out all regular fire brigades, who thought they had these 10 minutes. And the other old bombs followed the first.

    Demonstration by bombardment by junk, applying Hephaestus 24 as we have, getting the effect not less in accuracy, but MUCH in price - YES! It convinces. But scattering millions where it is absolutely unnecessary, a blow to the epaulets of those warriors who invented it. Budgets are spent everywhere reporting to congresses. And there, each corporation has its own lobby. It will erase a competitor quickly.

    during this "carpet" bombardment,
    What, what, and carpet bombing is the United States' hobbyhorse. They distinguished themselves by this, first together with the British in Dresden, then in Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, they "indulge" in this even today, when there is nothing to answer diplomatically.

    The familiar tactics of pin-dos eagles, to spoil as large a territory as possible, Agent Orange in Vietnam, bombs with unenriched uranium in Yugoslavia, now scorched earth on the Tigris.

    Some garbage in the note. The ghastly bombardment with precision-guided munitions is absurd. It's like shooting bursts of hand-made sniper cartridges. Carpet bombing is over areas, and high-precision munitions are point-wise. They were invented to replace carpet bombing. Their price is justified by the fact that they replace carpet bombing.

    Either the journalist is a complete sucker, or in the USA the roof has finally fallen off someone ...

          Not really ... They throw a bunch of Chugunin. The Hephaestus sight allows you to combine the center of the pack with a target of 20 m approximately. That is, from a pack of 8 bombs, about 2 pieces will hit the target (or very close to the target).
          6 - into milk (and with damage to neighboring objects).
          One accurate bomb is more expensive than 8 cast iron. But one plane can take 3-4 accurate bombs and hit 3-4 targets. And ordinary bombs - one pack of 8 pieces and hit one target. With iron you will have to do more sorties. Each sortie is a lot of money. They thought that accurate bombs were simply cheaper than conventional bombs, given the number of sorties to defeat the same number of targets.

            You're not right. SVP-24 "Hephaestus" is intended for "piece" bombing. And its accuracy is several times higher than that indicated by you: 4-7 (5-10) meters for a single 500 kg bomb from a height of 5-6 thousand meters. Look at the footage from Syria, there are many examples of single bombing with high accuracy. At the same time, it is known that the main ammunition of our aviation there were FAB 250 and 500 kg, and the main aircraft were Su-24 and Su-25. In the photo and video from Syria, you can see that they had a standard load of 4 kg of bombs.

            But who will give him 3-4 target designations? But in theory it can. Like the Su-24, in theory it can hit 3-4 targets with 500 kg bombs per takeoff. And who told you that out of 100 adjustable bombs, 100 fall?

            Well, this arithmetic is already completely controversial. Firstly, it is based on false theses about "6 bombs in milk", and 100% hitting the target with an adjustable bomb. The war in Iraq has shown that this is very much wrong. Statistics show that on large fixed targets such as "bridge" or "bunker", US aviation was able to achieve only 75% of hits with guided bombs.
            And then, one set of "cheap" US JDAM bomb costs 70 thousand dollars with an accuracy of + -11 meters. It is unlikely that even a successful flight with ammunition in the amount of 4 * 70 = 280 thousand dollars will be cheaper than 4 flights with cast iron.

              ----
              No sight can provide a free-falling bomb with such accuracy.
              Since the sight does not know, for example, what wind is at an altitude of 2 thousand meters when throwing
              from 5 thousand. Does not know how accurately the wings are welded to each specific bomb,
              what impetus she received when exiting the bomb bay.
              And any of these factors is a miss of 50 meters. Therefore
              cast-iron can only be bombarded with squares or thrown in batches.
              Or you have to dive with her like a "bastard-junkers".
              Then you get an "accurate bomb".
              With Hephaestus, the Moscow Region brutally stabbed everyone. What was to be done?
              KABov was in warehouses
              with a gulkin nose, they quickly ran out. Like Caliber.
              And the cast irons switched to countless FABs.
              With the myth of the "miracle sight". And miracles do not happen.

                  No, it’s impossible, because in our country the teachings show this. And you say that this record relates directly to the hostilities. And we do not see visual confirmation of the target’s defeat, there are no reports either.

                      It is not difficult, just serial bombing, and the bombs themselves "fall" according to the pattern. It is peculiar, of course, that they showed it with guided bombs, and now apparently they will work in the same way.
