Pentagon intends to transfer additional F-35 fighters to Europe


The US Department of Defense intends to send additional fifth-generation F-35 fighters to Europe in the next few years as part of a program to "contain Russia" and prepare NATO partners for "new methods of warfare." About ethos reports Fox News with reference to statements by US Air Force General James Holmes.


According to the general, the Pentagon intends to send an additional 50 F-35 fighter to Europe over the coming years in order to bring the total number of fifth-generation fighters to one hundred or higher together with NATO partners and be used to “contain Russia”.

By the time our planes arrive there, in Europe, taking into account our European partners, there will already be more than 100 F-35. We will join our European partners who already have their own F-35

- said Holmes.

According to the channel, the complete redeployment of fighters will be completed at the beginning of the 2020's, and preparations are underway for their transfer. Places of new deployment are not indicated, but with a high degree of probability it will be the Baltic states or the countries of Eastern Europe, located closer to the Russian border.

It is assumed that the American F-35 pilots will carry out training and serve together with the European allies, which in general will give the United States and NATO "a whole series" of new options for strike operations in order to "prevent a potential attack from Russia."

According to the author of the article,

F-35 not only possesses fifth-generation stealth technologies, but is also equipped with unparalleled guidance systems of unprecedented range and new types of air combat weapons, and also, by analogy with unmanned aerial vehicles, has the ability to monitor and monitor target areas


F-35 nuclear weapons are also not excluded. weapons.

    Somehow it's a shame. recourse They do not respect, since the f-35mi decided to "hold back".

      They decided to reinforce with what is not yet in nature and not the fact that it will be. An order for 460 cars has just been issued. When they are collected and brought "to the mind" - Allah alone knows. So it's time for the NATO “sixes” to think - how to live on? Do not "kidanut" them, like the Kurds, as soon as the need disappears.

        You did not understand...
        The order for the next 478 cars.
        This is the 12th, 13th, 14th lots (servings).
        The United States already has 8 F-35 combat squadrons and several new ones are being formed. And 2 training at the Navy. In total, about 450 aircraft were produced.

          These are all digital figures drawn on paper. What is their real combat capability? About how they fall we already read.

            2 out of 450 fell. Over 200,000+ hours flown. Not so much, given that they are used by pilots in 10 countries.
            In combat strike missions they are tested: they work perfectly.
            In air battles not tested.
            But the latest Russian fighters have not been tested as well ... and European.

              In shock missions? Against countries where the word air defense is known only from Wikipedia? And Russian fighters of the 5th generation, so far not impose on anyone.

                Syrian air defense is the most active in the world. They shoot everything down without ceremony. They were checked using the F-35, as the most interesting.

                So there is nothing to impose for now.
                The first serial for the Russian Air Force is in the process of blocking.

                  Active and effective are two different things. Firstly, outdated, and secondly, the terrain - you will not wish the enemy. Thirdly, Israeli F - 35s operated with the strongest support of RTR and EW. In other situations, providing such support will be very unlikely.

      "Fighter of the 5th generation", based on the Soviet deck Yak-141, the development of the 80s of the last century. Drawings and technologies (which were military secrets) of this aircraft were sold by some of the senior officials to the Americans. That's the whole "modern development", "5th generation" and "having no analogues" ...

        in what place on the F-35a is the base of the yak? In the backward electronics of a yak or in a dead engine? laughing maybe yak was made as a stealth?

          In 1995, Lockheed Martin announced the receipt of military secrets from the Yakovlev Design Bureau. How these secrets were obtained, the representatives of the American company modestly kept silent. The knowledge and experience of Soviet technical specialists gained during the development of the Soviet Yak-141 vertical takeoff and landing fighter became the basis for the development of the F-35.
          Many journalists explain the external similarity by the collaboration between Lockheed Martin and Yakovlev Design Bureau from 1991 to 1997, it is known that a circuit with a fan driven by the X-35 lift-march engine was proposed before the news in the USA about the secret development of the Yak-141 in the USSR and substantially is different.

          This is what Wikipedia tells us. It is clear that copying the Yak-141 did not make much sense. But to take as a basis the concept itself and some promising developments and inventions ...

        When will you change manuals? Only version B refers to vertical take-off, and only a rotary nozzle is implemented the same way, otherwise it is completely 2 different planes. versions A and C have nothing to do with Yak at all.

    It seems to me that today in the Russian Federation, the most nervous work is the operational duty officer of the General Staff in the western direction, as his position is called there. It is he who will have to make decisions on the response of the Armed Forces, under which the Commander-in-Chief will then subscribe. And all these 'partners', God forgive me, only escalate the situation and make it more intense. And the problem is that mongrels behave like in a Russian proverb: make a fool pray to God, he will break his forehead

      Their “new methods” are attempts to recreate our “hybrid” tactics. wassat so far unsuccessfully, they do not understand what a combat initiative of units is, well, they don’t have such a concept ...

        On the ground, the troops crawling them are not interesting, there is nothing to catch there ... but if they start building, testing and IMPLEMENTING the network infrastructure for the very advanced "penguins", this may already be interesting. We are not talking about full-fledged deployment, they haven’t done it at home, but they can try some elements and cheer up potential buyers! And then they can be deeply disappointed and they will make their "pepelats"! They have time and resources, there would be a desire.

    In response, deploy the quietly unremovable Nukes at the right places in NATO. No carriers, hypersound .... A dead hand activates. And the whole race will lose its meaning

    According to the channel, the full redeployment of fighters will be completed in the early 2020s, preparations are underway for their transfer.

    Hurried up. But the point is not in "Russian aggression." AND :
    - show the NATO countries that they are not in vain paying 2%, (some,
    doubt)
    - show the EU that you don’t need to dream about your army (otherwise
    some dream)
    - The airbase will definitely be in Poland. (raise their status to
    Europe, so that the French and Germans do not "fight off")
    - Trump and his team, show their determination, for
    raising their% in the election.
    - The US military-industrial complex - increased income.
    - For the media do not have to torment and spend money on new programs.
    Continue the theme - Russia is the "aggressor", who is with it,
    that is against us. yes
