F-35 fighters of the squadron of "aggressors" will be painted under Russian Su-57

50

American fighters of the fifth generation F-35 from the 64th training squadron of "aggressors" will receive a paint scheme that repeats the paint scheme of the Russian Su-57 fighters. This was announced by US Air Force veteran and artist Sean Hampton.


Hemton said that 64th Squadron ordered sketches of F-35 fighters in the livery for Russian aircraft. In the process, the artist made several sketches, stating that the main work on painting real aircraft should be expected next year.

This is just a quick overview. Wait for the official presentation next year

- he wrote on Facebook.

F-35 fighters of the squadron of "aggressors" will be painted under Russian Su-57

For our part, we note that this is the first case of painting an F-35 under Russian fighters. Earlier it was reported about the F-16 fighters from the "aggressor", which received a coloring that repeats the painting scheme of the Russian Su-57 fighters.

The 64th "aggressor" squadron itself is based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada and depicts "potential enemy" aircraft as part of the US Air Force.

As the commander of the 57th Air Wing of the United States Air Force, General Rob Novotny, said earlier, answering the question of why the American military aviation this kind of imitation was needed:

This is a common practice for an air wing. We train military pilots to get used to the camouflage of other countries' aviation. In other words, so as not to fall into a stupor at the sight of something new for them.

    So what happens in combat is visual contact? Then the penguin has no chance.

      Nobody rules out this possibility
      The Su-57 has built-in armament. In this capacity, a new 30-mm automatic cannon 9A1-4071K is used - a modernized version of the well-known and well-deserved GSh-30-1.

      Especially for the F-35 fighter-bomber, General Dynamics created the GAU-22 / A four-barreled 25-mm cannon.

        The fact is that the Americans ruled out this possibility, according to their tactics, the F-35 could release missiles while remaining invisible to the enemy, so maneuverability was not the main thing for him.

        In 2019, it flashed that there were problems with the centering of the gun and its mount (when firing, the mounts cracked and there was a risk of destruction of the airframe elements). Most likely it was repaired, but the fact is that only the F-35A is built-in. The rest only with suspended container guns. The characteristics of the F-35B for dogfighting generally look frankly weaker against the background of competitors, and with the suspended GAU they will be clearly even worse.
        Most likely, dogfight is in last place, camouflage is the second thing, and in the top - stealth, which appears everywhere. To simulate close maneuverable combat better than Hornet with the F-16 and old F-5s, nothing was invented.

    Interesting. Are they reinsuring themselves (“we hope for the best, we hope for the worst!”) Or do they really think that only the lighter F-57 can imitate the behavior of the heavier Su-35?

      It's not that.
      This "aggressor squadron" faced a problem. When training battles were played against the F-35, the exercise did not work.
      The "aggressors" took off, circled, and in turn they were told from the ground: "you are shot down, you are shot down." When - they did not know.
      Therefore, their commander reasonably asked for an F-35 for his pilots. Now a lot of F-35s have been released, and the aggressors will get it too.
      But you still need to paint the planes to match the enemies.

        In 2016, John Kerry asks the Syrian "opposition" if they have video materials confirming these facts. The response from the Arab side sounded indistinct. "So, I can say that we have a bunch of videos of the terrible victims of these attacks, but they do not help us. We need footage of real aircraft and weapons. There are a lot of such videos on the Internet, but it is impossible to establish its authenticity. Now we will be helped by filming a real aircraft." , - summed up the meeting the US Secretary of State

        Is it a coincidence - the repainting of US aircraft in Syria immediately after the words of Secretary of State Kerry about the need to provide video materials?

          Actually, it was painted under the Iranian Air Force. And this board does not correspond to the Iranian Air Force in terms of marking. The tail number is not printed, etc.
          This is what Iranian Tomket looks like


          A-4 served in Israel and Kuwait,

          They could not get to Iran in any way ..
          The vehicle belongs to either VMFT-401 (Marine Corps) or
          VFC-111 (Navy). In my opinion, the 401st, and they flew from Miramar, if only sclerosis does not let me down in some of the squadron numbers.

    At the moment when the USA pilots can distinguish the camouflage of our Dryers, nothing will save them, except perhaps by ejection.
    So - let them develop a conditioned reflex - do not pull the "eject" handles, we will take them prisoner along with the planes;)

          In fact, in fiscal 2017, the average flight time per pilot in the U.S. Air Force was 17,6 hours per month, including 16,4 hours per month for fighter pilots, 17,6 hours per month for military transport pilots, and 19,4 hours a month - for bomber pilots.


          https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3114161.html

          The raid plan for the 2018 academic year has been fully implemented; the total raid has increased by more than 2017 6 hours compared to the 000 year. The average flight time for a pilot was more than 100 hours, for a young pilot - a graduate of 2017 year more than 120 hours.

            Not. First of all, even plaque is counted differently between them and us. They have everything from starting the engine to turning it off. We have from the start of the run to touch. Secondly, in the last year, infa broke through that a number of squadrons of the ILC had less than 100 hours of flight time. Yes, and for the Europeans there were questions that they cheated taking into account.

                From a conversation with one friend, flew to the Air Force.
                - We counted the flight hours every minute from the start of the run to the end of the run.
                - The Americans are counting down the "opening-closing" of the cockpit canopy.
                The length of taxiways, trunk lines and taxiing schemes at all points (airfields) are different (this is me "for the lights"). It happens from the preliminary to the executive start immediately taxied, and sometimes you stand "very thoughtful", thresh with engines, you miss the incoming ones. They have 5-10 minutes more for each flight, but this is for a start ...


                - but for example, I know for sure that the French figures are extremely overstated. They have such problems with maintenance that mom don't cry. I don’t know about fighters, but helicopter pilots, for example, have about 40 percent of the sides just faulty. And they consider the raid very strange - they take only the most flown crews, the pilots who do not fly are generally deleted from the list, and from this they make an office. statistics. So not everything is chocolate too.

                I read an interview with a Jewish squadron commander, he writes I fly once a week. This is 52 flights per year. On time well from 1 to 3 hours. Total flight time from 52 hours to 156 hours. Hardly more. The officialdom pours into our ears about 300 hours of flight. I have not seen their KULP - I have ours. I represent the essence. I hope you are smart enough not to compare the ability to own an airplane of a military pilot flying in his arms with an annual flight time of 100 hours and a brand new paksovoy with a flight time of 300 hours. I suppose you heard what Direct Fashion is.
