The US Air Force is going to use the F-35A to simulate the Chinese fighter J-20


The US military budget for 2020 provides for the financing of the program for the maintenance and development of the so-called squadron of "aggressors", part of the US Air Force. This is a squadron whose mission is to imitate the combat aviation US opponents. This is a division of the US Air Force, in which aircraft can be repainted in the colors of the Russian Air Force or the Chinese Air Force.


American military expert Tyler Rogway notes that the squadron is going to replenish fifth-generation fighters. For what?

The fact is that in the United States there is a program for practicing military pilots in case of combat contact with enemy aircraft. According to Tyler Rogway, fifth-generation fighters in the squadron of “aggressors” (the existing 64th and the emerging 65th squadron) will help American pilots gain experience in case of, for example, potential contact with the Chinese J-20. These are the 5th generation fighter of the PLA Air Force, the number of which is growing in China, and already with engines of its own production.

In the United States, it is reported that the Pentagon intends to implement plans to send nine early fifth-generation F-35A serial fighters to the Nellis airbase, where the squadrons of "aggressors" are based. These planes are going to add to the dozens of available F-16s of various modifications, which during training play the role of planes of foreign states, including Russian aerospace fighters.

The final formation of a new squadron in the US Air Force is scheduled for 2022. However, the F-35A of the earlier versions is planned to begin to be used as an “enemy” aircraft immediately after being transferred to Nellis airbase and after the creation of the colors typical of the PLA air force. In particular, it is planned to analyze the operation of radars with AFAR, to complete the implementation of maneuvers in the air, etc. "in case of contact with Chinese J-20s."

In China, at the moment, such US plans to use the F-35 to simulate with their help J-20 fighters in the training of American pilots have not yet responded.

    Probably, to complete the experiment, the Americans could buy the Chinese J20 and train with them. wink Of course, if the Chinese had not refused. lol

      belay
      And, we reliably know all the advantages of the F-35? Maybe they are only for simulation and are suitable? lol
      This is some kind of oxymoron: some use inflatable mock-ups of military equipment to simulate, others use inflatable women, and at the Pentagon they finally found a worthy use for their "invisibles" ... repeat

        hi
        Probably a lot but not all. But what’s sad is another Turkey’s trick that presented the US with our S-400 (here we have such a "companion", damn it). Our “Voentorg” and the development of electronics embedded in the complexes were under attack.

          Clearly, Turkish "friend" is worse than old two all ...
          Do not despair especially. I believe that not completely empty-headed people are sitting in the RF Ministry of Defense, and export options for partners may have other characteristics than for their own air defense, as well as such degrees of protection against hacking that God forbid ...

            Yes, but the contracts for the sale of complexes will fly, because the United States will inflate a fake about the incapacity of Russian complexes against American "exceptionally reliable" equipment. And they know how to do it.

              And why should they react?
              The entertainment of the Americans inside is strange - the internal affair of the Americans.
              Yes, and painting their planes "under the enemy" is a long tradition of the US Air Force. Only earlier did they usually imitate Russian planes.
              I wonder how they will paint "under the Chinese", they will draw a red star? It will be interesting to see such a photo.

          That is, you want to say that the Turks gave the Americans to dismantle their S-400 and signed a contract for new supplies? And the Americans looked, immediately abolished their Kaats?

            Read the pink screen. With regards to "let it be disassembled," it is unlikely, but the electronics parameters will probably be removed.

              Well damn scared. Naturally removed and read the instruction manual. It’s all right. CAATSA works like a public releyshen (PR) of the fifth level. What's the trick here? We are building a Turkish missile defense, not Americans and not Chinese (from whom we took this contract away)

            Disassemble the blocks does not work, they are inseparable and filled with special composition. When you try to open, you get metal. And it’s not the main thing in our air defense that is the main thing, but the operation algorithms and they can’t be opened without connecting, but to connect you need to open the blocks laughing.

          But didn’t anyone know that the Turks would merge everything into Shataty?
          Everyone understood perfectly, including ours. The question is, did we take measures when selling the S-400? If so, which ones. And if not, then ... I don’t know how to write it then ...

          Did you get this from Zen? There is no reference to the source, and trust Zen .........
          Although you can not trust the Turks. Throughout history, there have been several periods when Russia acted on the same side with the Turks (all are short-term), but they fought most of the time.

    Something in the news lags behind
    US rocket attacked Iraq

    The Pentagon said that during the attack, Iranian general Kassem Suleymani, the head of the Al-Quds special forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC, an elite division of the Iranian army), was killed. Reuters reports that it was eliminated using an unmanned aerial vehicle.

    According to some reports, the deputy commander of the Shiite militia of Iraq, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, was also killed. He arrived at the Baghdad airport with a convoy to meet Suleymani. It is reported that the blow was struck immediately after the general left the plane.
