We will learn to defeat Russia, we will defeat Iran: US Air Force General on the development of aviation


The United States continues to reflect on the modernization of the country's air force. What will be aviation the future? This time, Air Force Chief of Staff General David Goldfein thought about this.


In his speech, the general, who has been heading the headquarters of the US Air Force for the fourth year, talked about the prospects for the development of military aviation and space forces as well. Goldfein knows what he is talking about. A professional military pilot, he began his service 36 years ago with the rank of lieutenant and went through all the stages of the American military hierarchy. He flew on an F-16 fighter, was shot down, participated in a number of wars. That is, this is a real combat officer who perfectly sees the key areas of development of American (and the world as a whole) aviation.

According to a senior military man, the main priorities in the development of the US Air Force should be modern software for the unhindered communication of pilots with artillery and ships, in cyberspace and in space, machine learning and systematization of data.

In modern warfare, coordination of the efforts of air, ground and naval forces comes to the fore, allowing you to create an integrated team. The pilot of a plane, detecting a ground target, directs fire of naval or land artillery, or vice versa. It is this coordination of efforts that makes strikes against the enemy inevitable. Actually, the United States is already testing similar tactics in the Middle East.

The general also spoke about the recent military exercises, in which the potential of the ground forces, the Navy and the US Air Force was simultaneously involved. The modern methods of collecting, analyzing and exchanging data in real time were analyzed. The target was identified and then hit by a simulated cruise missile.

Another plus is the new technology for coordinating the actions of pilots F-35 Lightning II and F-22 Raptors with units of ground forces and special forces on the ground, which significantly increased the possibility of defeating the enemy.

Now the US military command is promoting the concept of joint management of all domains of the armed forces, which will allow, more effectively, according to the Pentagon, to reflect threats and risks from such major US adversaries as Russia and China, not to mention Iran and North Korea.

The second main area, which the Air Force Chief of Staff spoke about, is space security. Star wars did not remain fiction, they are yet to come, I'm sure, apparently, an American general. In the future, one who can effectively control outer space will win in land wars, including in trade ones. Holding positions in space is directly related to the prospects for the economic development of modern America.

Donald Trump, as you know, became the main initiator of the creation of special space forces in the United States, which have to fight for American dominance in outer space. The military elite of the president supports, because the new type of armed forces is new appropriations, new programs and opportunities. General Goldfein tried to convince the audience that he did not have any jealousy for the new command of the Space Forces, which is headed by General John Raymond. The Air Force and Space Forces are the closest types of American armed forces in terms of tasks, and therefore they are going to work in the most close contact.

The American general made another important statement. He emphasized that if American aviation now concentrates on studying and improving the means of combating only one Iran, it will be defenseless before the great powers of our time - China and Russia. But if we initially build up the potential for a possible war with China and Russia, “if we learn to defeat them,” then Iran will be a feasible goal for the United States.

              In general, the states are interesting.
              I watched here once a movie called "Why We Fight (Battle for Russia) 1943" filmed by the states. An interesting analysis of the USSR through the eyes of the United States. They, as “marketers,” carried out an analysis of the situation in the USSR and identified strengths and weaknesses.
              When watching the film, it seemed that even in those days, the United States was preparing for a post-war clash with the USSR.

              This general must be put in place in the historical homeland-brains. So that he didn’t carry any crap. The customs ones are somehow more adequate. Either the shmal they have is not so picky, those (Meriks) from around the world can choose.

            They do not even think that Russia is weaker than Iran, but considering that after a small conflict with Iran, which took place after the assassination of Suleimani, the mattresses, after soaking their trousers, did not turn the small conflict into a big war, so that to at least somehow justify our inaction, we decided to give such an argument as an argument, they say, we will first deal with Russia and China, and then we will pay off our shame with Iran. It sounds absurd of course, but given the fact that the mattress brain often generates mutually exclusive things, then in their opinion such an interpretation sounds significant. So you’re right - "Everything is bad in the states ..."

      He said everything correctly. You will learn to fight against the Chinese and Russians, quickly make the Iranians. You will learn to fight against the Persians, the level of your army will be lower than the Russian and Chinese.
      In other words - you want to win the Dynamo Uryupinsk boxing championship, train with the guys who went to Russia, and not with the guys in the district section.

              I believe that this refers to the ability to work against the S-300, S-400, Bukov and Carapace under the cover of VKS fighters, and not a full-scale war with Russia, which will end with an apocalypse. This is the Air Force chief of staff - not the head of the Pentagon. )) And his task is to minimize the loss of his aircraft in the destruction of Iranian targets - for this you need to train to work against the air defense and air forces of developed countries.

            It’s reasonable, but still learning to fight against Russia does not mean at all that in the end you can reliably count on any significant ultimate success, you can pretend and blow the whole world that America is ahead of Russia in the quality and innovativeness of weapons, but this is only an attempt to give the desired for real, now it’s important not so much the quantity as the quality and effectiveness of the weapon, so let them blow themselves, and we will not so loud and pompous, but constantly and competently develop our Army and military-industrial complex.

          No, colleague ... This is a military pro with combat experience and experience in staff work, a “real military”. And he says in all seriousness and not at all about what the site visitors write excitedly. Thoughts from his report:
          1. This general, unlike many, spoke about the development of his own kind of armed forces and the wars of the future. He sees the war as network-centric, in close interaction of all types and arms of the army.
          2. To achieve the goals of the war, it is necessary to act in real time. To do this, improve the software. The platform from the Air Force in such a war will be F-35 & F-22. A means of hitting targets on the battlefield and in the depths of the enemy’s territory will be the KR. Therefore, a new technology is needed to coordinate the actions of the Air Force, Air Force, and MTR.
          3. Cyberspace and space will be the scene of confrontation. The success of which depends on the state of the country's economy. Space security is the challenge of today. And Star Wars is yet to come.
          4. Already being tested scenarios of future wars with the integrated use and interaction of all types and kinds of forces. This is practiced on the exercises of the Air Force, SV, Navy. Therefore, the general promotes the idea of ​​joint control of all forces in the operation, on the theater of operations.
          5. It is in this that he sees the path of improving the Air Force and the Armed Forces as a whole in order to confront China and the Russian Federation. By learning this, you can easily deal with Iran. Therefore, "there is no need to focus on studying and improving the fight against Iran." This task can be easily solved if we learn to “defeat” a stronger opponent.
          Here is a brief summary of what the US Air Force NS reported.
          But colleagues hit a propaganda bias: - to fight with us? Yes, we them! Yes, they are with us! ("Only stars are higher than us, only mountains of the Caucasus are cooler than us!") But in fact - not a word! Well, how can one relate to analytical things?
          Many words, where are the thoughts?

            He sees the war as network-centric, in close interaction of all types and arms of the army.

            It has been and is for a long time. The means of communication and intelligence have changed, electronic assistants and EVERYTHING have appeared! All this did NOT ADD talent, intelligence, or anything else to generals! You can’t talk about changes in the types, power, and lethality of weapons, it just is.
            Everything else you have listed is true, but by no means new, one way or another it has been discussed at VO more than once ...
            You admit such an option that the real headquarters do not know this and do not take into account ... I do not allow this.
            But in this phrase the whole point is, in short

            "No need to focus on studying and improving the fight against Iran." This task can be easily solved if we learn to “defeat” a stronger opponent.

            They themselves indicated that ... by the way, I liked the word IF???

    It seems to be a military general, but apparently has not yet been fought.

    been shot down, participated in a number of wars. That is, this is a real combat officer who perfectly sees the key areas of development of American (and the world as a whole) aviation.

    "Ostap suffered." Well, well, a printing press, it’s great, of course, only it can break, and voracious vassals can cry out: - "dad, pennies - pennies come on", and "where to get it if there isn’t."

    "According to a senior military man, the main priorities in the development of the US Air Force should be modern software for the unhindered communication of pilots with artillery and ships, in cyberspace and in space" - it means that you need to create highly effective means of suppression and control interception that would interfere with this connection, so that fairy tales did not come true.

    Correctly, the General said: Will learn win Russia and China, then Iran will win.
    .
    That is, will learn conquer the strong, conquer and the weak. It remains only to learn. And it almost happened right after the collapse of the Union, but then Putin got out of the box and recreated Russia and its army and they have to study again.

    Goldfein knows what he is talking about
    So Russia and China, he last year "won" yes
    If China, Russia or any other enemy ever sees the F-35 in its airspace, I would like to say just two words: "We are here." Keep in mind that the F-35 will never be there alone, Goldfein said.

    For the American general, Iran is a stronger opponent than Russia, since in order to defeat it, you need to train for us ...

      The American general is idiotic logic, you can never learn how to successfully fight with Russia, because the United States will never remain safe and sound after such a war, and if so, then by their own logic and with Iran nothing good will come of !!!

        We are at war with America in various theaters of operations all the time ... Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, etc. Now let's say in Syria, remember the beginning of February of the year before last, when the Americans destroyed our "ichtamnets".

            But I don’t believe in a real clash between our countries, with the declaration of war.
            Most likely, our nuclear-weapon confrontation will take place with China, moreover, on our territory.

    We will learn to defeat Russia, we will defeat Iran: US Air Force General on the development of aviation


    American science of winning.

    Military doctrine
    U.S.A
    Mastered the tricks
    "Science to win."
    And about the tricks of these
    Real former pilot -
    Goldfein is his last name,
    I decided to tell us.

    For example, you decide
    What to conquer peoples
    Suddenly turned up
    Lucky moment.
    No need to rush:
    With Russia or China
    Do it slowly
    You are this experiment.

    Soldiers in these countries
    They fight very weakly.
    And in service
    Only tanks and AK.
    And here is coordination
    All troops in cyber space
    Will certainly
    Hole them all with their sides ...

    Do not spray
    Well, if you beat, then in bulk.
    Two countries are enough
    For USA armies
    Suddenness of strokes
    Praised Tomahawks
    Recall their defense
    And everything will be “o'key”!

    And after this quick
    Small blood showdowns
    Perhaps earning money
    Strategy and plan
    You can get involved in a long
    Military campaign
    With countries “serious”:
    Korea il Iran ...

    So in the madhouse
    In a straitjacket
    Tied to the bed
    He raved and screamed.
    And from under the covers
    It carried a nasty stench
    And on the floor from the mattress
    Urine was dripping ...

    You are afraid of North Korea, with a dozen nuclear warheads, and climb to Russia, with its 30000 units of ammunition ... It is fraught with the destruction of the second coast of Carthage and the crazy Yankees inhabiting it
