In the US, explained the transfer of F-35A to the air base "closer to Syria"

39

The United States called the country into which two F-35A new-generation fighter jets were deployed at the beginning of the year as part of a reported combat mission. If initially the circle of countries was delineated by the entire territory of the Middle East, now it is stated that F-35 fighters were deployed at the Muwaffak Salti airbase in Jordan - "closer to Syria."


There was information about the performance of operations by American fighters after their transfer. The US Department of Defense notes that the first F-35A sorties belonging to the 34th expeditionary fighter squadron were carried out on February 16.

Thus, it must be noted that the United States is currently deploying F-35 in at least three countries in the region: Jordan, the UAE and Kuwait. According to some reports, the base in Bahrain may also be.

What was the purpose of the transfer of combat aircraft to the air base in Jordan? The reasons are told in the USA itself.

According to The Drive, such a transfer ensures the efficiency of tasks in southern Syria. This includes, among other things, the so-called “zone of American control,” which, according to the mentioned resource, “the formations supported by Russia and Iran have repeatedly tried to attack.” That is, the United States recognizes that the country's air forces continue to invade Syrian airspace?

At the same time, there is no data on whether the deployed F-35s inflicted attacks on Syrian territory since February 2020. Previously, all attacks on the territory of the SAR by "unknown planes" in the press were usually attributed to the Israeli Air Force.

It is noted that the transfer of two F-35A "is also part of a program to develop methods for quick response to challenges and threats in the region."

From the material:

Concerns about the vulnerability of existing fixed bases have been a major driver of these efforts. They are pushing the service to search for ideas on how it could use new airfields in the midst of a major conflict.

As follows from this statement, the United States is not looking for an opportunity to resolve the conflict, but is engaged in the search and implementation of ideas in case of another military escalation in the region.

    Well, now it’s clear that the attack on the T4 base (Tadmore) last night was delivered not by the Israeli Air Force (as Assad claimed), but by the American.

      The attack, without agreement with the Russian side, in the areas where the Russian troops were located, was the reason why the Syrian air defense systems opened fire. The reasons why the Syrian S-300 air defense systems were not deployed have not yet been explained, however, the long-range radars of these systems could not detect the approaching Israeli F-16s in a timely manner.

      At the moment, it is known that Israeli F-16 fighters fired at least six missiles in the vicinity of Syrian Palmyra, at least half of which were shot down. Earlier, in the areas where the strikes were made, the Russian military was spotted. As a result of return fire, Israeli planes could not be shot down, which may be due to the powerful electronic suppression of Israel.

        Well yes. At least half of the rockets shot down, the remaining three caused minor damage, destroying the outhouse toilet. True, satellite images with real damage at the base will be published in a week, but most will already forget about it and will continue to say that the Israeli air force shoots from Lebanese airspace, that the Syrian air defense shoot down all missiles and that strikes are carried out to support ISIS terrorists (banned in Russia ) It’s a pity no one can explain exactly which missiles fly from Lebanon to Tadmore (and what prevents Syrians from shooting towards Lebanon in general), where the new ruins at the bases of the IRGC and the Hezbollah terrorist organization (allowed in Russia) and how the strike on Tadmore helps militants ISIS (banned in Russia), which are located somewhere under Halab.
        By the way, why the Syrian air defense could not notice the F-16? This is the fourth generation aircraft, without stealth technologies, and the S-300 is just designed to work in conditions of active interference.

        To put it mildly, does not withstand any criticism.
        According to the agreement between Russia and Israel, there is always a warning, as well as a request to convey to Syria that strikes only on the objects of ksir and hizbala. Any response from Syria's air defense will be suppressed.

        This is due to the powerful electronic suppression of Israel and the fact that Israel is in the first half of the 21st century, and Syria is where it is.

There are zero specifics, but there’s news ... they have to fly somewhere, or they’ll stand at the airfields of the metropolis, then you’ll look and the wrong thoughts will begin to arise about their need .. and here it’s all something dvizhuha ..

    In Iraq, they are afraid to post. Settled in Jordan to strike, according to the "Israeli-vile" option. Strike Syria without entering its airspace.
    Anglo-Saxons will not give Russia a secure foothold in the BV.
    They want to arrange an "Afghan version" there, and this can happen if Turkey "loves" the United States again and abandons its "friendship" with Russia. Our weakest place is the Bosphorus.

    It is noted that the transfer of two F-35A "is also part of a program to develop methods for quick response to challenges and threats in the region."

    Just for a quick response, planes of the 4th generation are better suited, less preparation time for departure, less cost, but higher speed. F-35s are more likely to be relocated for testing purposes, the region is constantly in conflict, with the participation of the usa, and you can try the latest Russian airplanes and air defense systems without a risk of a direct clash. And the VKS, too, will now receive quite a bit of information about the f-35 in the zone of its review. So then there will be cat and mouse, but without an audience.

    By and large, no one needs their explanation. The expansion of locations is governed by evolution. That is, the larger the population, the larger the territory it occupies. The more planes there are, the more airfields they will take

    The whole point is that the US military presence is not going anywhere. But, the problem is the presence of foreign troops (which support and create illegal armed groups) remains. These formations (usually militants do not know for which they receive weapons and give their lives), create a protracted conflict. The question is, is the educational environment itself being addressed to support conflict?

    "The zone of American control", which, as the mentioned resource writes, "the formations supported by Russia and Iran have repeatedly tried to attack"
    The formations supported by Russia and Iran are fighting against international terrorists, to which the United States and the coalition led by them, about which recently, something is not heard, can be safely attributed. Firstly, they illegally entered the territory of a foreign country; secondly, they provide financial and material assistance to weapons and second-hand bandits; thirdly, they openly steal oil that doesn’t belong to them ... Therefore, if someone really attacks the “people with democracy”, it is only for the purpose of protecting their country from invaders. In Vietnam, carpet bombing and the Orange did not help; in Syria, the F-35 did not help.

      1 confirmed downed aircraft on more than 800 sorties? And the 117th continued to work.
      Following- in Iraq in 2003m. (And there were many successful applications in 199m)
      The plane was created in the early 80s, in the early 90s they only officially talked about it.
      His trouble is the complexity of management and great accident rate. With extreme specificity of action (only laser-guided bombs), therefore, they were removed from service.

    They have already shown it to us, having almost flown in the interception zone of our anti-missile defense systems! So, we certainly have radar and thermal portraits! By the way, "about the birds," some time ago, in one resource, information appeared that the real EPR f35 is 0,35-0,47 m2, the difference is due to the option of stealth coverage!

    Yes, pind wasps never sought peace. Their whole story is saturated with hostility, capture, robbery and blood. Moreover, this blood is not theirs. And those who did not want to give their free. And their entire economy rests only on this. And to rob, it is necessary to put on a beautiful wrapper of "democracy." As a result, wars around the world are initiated by the USA. And if so, then the beneficiary is known.
