Pentagon: F-35 aircraft in Alaska will allow projecting force on the Arctic region

79

It became known that the Pentagon abandoned the idea of ​​closing the Aelson air base in Alaska. This is a U.S. Air Force military facility on which F-16 fighters, as well as KC-135 Stratotanker refueling aircraft, have so far been based.

Now, the US military has decided that the base cannot be closed because of the "growing number of threats." The transfer of 5th generation fighters begins at a military facility.



The first two F-35A fighters have already been deployed at Aelson Air Base. They replenished 354 US Air Force wings.

In total, 54 F-35A fighters are planned to be sent to Alaska. This large-scale transfer is scheduled for completion by the end of 2021. Aircraft will be distributed between the two squadrons.

The Pentagon notes that the deployment of F-35 and F-22 aircraft "in sufficient quantity" will allow "projecting force into the Arctic region" using the "successful geostrategic location of Alaska."

Recall that earlier in the US they accused Russia of militarizing the Arctic, adding that Russia thus “poses a threat”.

          Yeah.
          No, of course you can cover the plane from the tip of the nose to the tips of the keels. And then a specially trained Negro will clean this snowdrift with a special certified panicle for half a day, so as not to damage the stealth coating, but somehow it is doubtful. With the hangar faster, easier, more reliable and more comfortable for everyone.

          You are based on a fake article. In close air combat, the F-35 is approximately equal to 4 generation aircraft. But the very philosophy of F-35 is that for him, close air combat is already a failure. It is designed for medium and long range air battles. And 4-generation aircraft have no chance against the F-35. This was repeatedly demonstrated in the Red Fleg exercises, when the F-35 was shot down like F-15 ducks at long and medium distances, while successfully evading close combat. The problem for the F-35 would arise if the SU-57 had stealth and then in the close air combat the F-35 would have little chance. But for an incomprehensible reason, our designers preferred over-maneuverability, which is no use in modern aerial combat

        "The MiG-31BM is a deeply modernized version of the MiG-31. Changes were mainly made to the avionics, which were completely replaced with a new one. In addition to the installation of new multifunctional indicators, as well as most of the electronic systems, the MiG-31BM received a new radar" Zaslon-M ", which allows detect a target with a reflective surface of 3 square meters at a distance of up to 320 kilometers and aim missiles at targets at a range of up to 280 kilometers.The MiG-31BM is capable of simultaneously tracking 24 targets and simultaneously targeting all 4 long-range R-33S missiles "

          April 25 2020 10: 03
          And how does all of the above help the MIG-31? F-35, being undetected, will launch the AIM-120c from a long distance and this will be the end of the air battle. Unfortunately, our designers did not understand (or there is no appropriate technology) that fighters of the 5th generation will fight with fighters of the 4th generation at long and medium distances. Our wise men in the Su-57 sacrificed stealth in favor of over-maneuverability. But if there is no stealth, the plane will not survive to close air combat. This is true both in relation to the MIG-31, and alas, the SU-57. It pains me to write this, but this is true, in aviation we are very much (I hope that it is not hopeless) behind the Americans. And another patriot is not the one who thoughtlessly shouts cheers, but the one who talks about the shortcomings and hopes to improve them. Think about it before you minus me

          you don’t take into account one thing that the F-35 has many chances to evade a long-range missile, including disrupting the capture thanks to advanced electronics and electronic warfare, in combination with numerous tracking sensors, the F-35 pilot maximally possesses the necessary information throughout its radius of operation . The MiG-31 was not created to fight the F-35, so the fight at medium and short distances will be a pure merge, the only chance is a long-range battle, but the Russian roulette didn’t hit the long-range battle against F-35, but the F-35 CAN quite easily hit the non-maneuverable Mig-31 with its 5G operational overload. For comparison, the fully-armed and full-tanked F-35 is capable of maneuvering at 9G

    It is expected that by the end of 2021 the number of pilots in Ailson will almost double - from 1750 in 2019 to 3250 people. The wing now has eight qualified F-35 pilots and more than 90 accompanying, which is enough to accept the delivery of the first aircraft.

    To accommodate all of these new pilots, the Air Force will invest $ 500 million in dozens of construction projects in Eyelson, including new hangars, an F-35 flight simulator, ammunition depot, and a new school. Of the 41 military construction projects associated with the F-35 layout, 28 are completed.

    “Project power into the arctic region”
    As I understand it, they plan to "project" onto Russia, but Russia is not a screen or a plane, and the American "image" (projection) can get lost in the remote taiga of the Far East and Siberia. At the Pentagon, what is not a statement is a masterpiece. Only the other day, an American general complained that Russian aircraft began to fly further into the neutral sky over the Pacific Ocean, which worries them (the Americans) very much. And the fact that American planes fly along Russian borders is normal.

    If these devices "project" anything, it is the air defense system in Chukotka.

    F-35 aircraft in Alaska will allow you to project power

    Projection is not always unambiguously perceived. For example, in Hollywood.

    Well, yes, we have a scout, they have a spy. We can transfer our equipment to any region of Russia, friendly and not quite friendly countries, they are not allowed in their own country and in their allies. Our Su-57 is unique and unique in the world, their F-35 is a pregnant penguin and a child prodigy. Patriotism is wonderful, dull dullness and double standards are destructive for our country and our army.

    For your country and your army ?????? USA and US Army ?, may be?
