U.S. media calls 2019 noteworthy military events

In the US, they called those events in the military sphere that the media considered the most significant, noteworthy and interesting. There are ten of them, and, of course, they relate specifically to the United States.


10. In September, the U.S. Air Force banned the KS-46 strategic transport aircraft from transporting cargo and passengers. This happened due to the fact that during the flight the cargo locks were unlocked, which posed a threat to the crew and the car itself. On December 18, the problem was officially declared resolved.

9. German radar maker Hensoldt claims to have tracked the flight of two F-35s over 150 kilometers from a local farm using its latest development. What happened to the farmer and his development later was not reported.

8. A battle without warm toilets. US Air Force personnel during the rapid deployment exercises in Europe were forced to face “Spartan conditions,” which was also part of the training.

7. More than a quarter fleet S-130 transporters US Air Force Command encountered "unusual cracking" of the wing. 123 out of 450 aircraft temporarily stopped their work.

6. US Air Force Procurement Executive Will Roper announced a change in the procurement strategy for next-generation fighters. The country's industry will have to create new models within five years.

5. With the disappearance of the former supplier of sonar buoys, the Pentagon took care of the search for alternatives. The US president came to the rescue, who ordered to create five types of such devices at once.

4. The F-35 anti-radar coating has big problems when a fighter goes to supersonic.

3. The development of robotic ships for the US Navy was announced to counter China and, to a lesser extent, Russia.

2. Recently resigned US Rear Admiral Ronald Boxall, said that the US Navy will receive a high-energy laser and integrated optical dazzle as early as 2021, Defense News writes. Need for such weapons arose due to the high speed of modern anti-ship missiles.

1. The appearance of the promising Bell 360 Invictus helicopter is presented, as well as some details of the project are disclosed.

Of course, not all significant events of 2019 are presented here, even if we relate only to the United States, however, Defense News, which chose these, saw them as such.

    So F-35 can not be considered the fifth generation.

      All these divisions are very arbitrary. In terms of maneuverability and flying on super sound without afterburner, the F-35 does not reach the fourth

        And how many kilometers will a single-engine fighter be able to fly in super sound?
        50? 100?

      Yes, by announcing through the military budget sanctions on SP-2, without even referring, as before, to some political motives (Crimea, Ukraine ...), insolent, because we want it so ... We showed our rotten insides ...
      After that, one of our liberals wants to say about ... US democracy?

          Oh how !? I forgot what that they (sanctions) by the states were introduced through the UN, in an open mode, with evidence, listening to those whose rights it was proposed to infringe, that if sanctions were imposed on individual officials, they would not affect entire industries ...
          Yes, I forgot it, these democratic principles do not concern you, you are an “exceptional nation” (B. Abama) ...

    Yes these are the events. Probably the event "Battle without warm toilets" is much, not wrong, MUCH more remarkable and interesting than the launching of the second Ford aircraft carrier.

    I wonder what happened to the supplier? Maybe they went bankrupt, but Trump bought them quietly?
