U.S. Air Force first deployed F-35 fighters in major operation in Guam

31

The US Air Force first deployed fifth-generation F-35 fighters in a major operation in Guam. It is reported that they took off in the northwestern part of the peninsula (Anderson base) together with F-16 fighters.


The exercise, using F-35 fighters, was part of a larger "warplanes dispersal initiative," according to US Air Command. This "initiative" stems from the fact that the United States fears possible missile strikes from China and the DPRK on bases in the Pacific region in the event of a real military confrontation. In order not to lose all your battle at once Aviation, the US command and takes measures to disperse the means of fighter aircraft.

This raises a problem. It is connected with the fact that in such a plan it becomes more difficult to form a large attacking group, since the US bases in the Pacific region are remote from each other over long distances.

Earlier it was reported that the US Air Force intends to resume the use of one of the military bases in the Pacific Ocean, which was last used back in 1945.

Returning to the topic of maneuvers in Guam, it should be noted that four F-35A fighters assigned to the Eilson airbase in Alaska flew as part of the Agile Combat Employment mission. The military exercises were conducted jointly with the Japanese air force. In particular, Japanese aircraft tankers were used to refuel the F-35A of the US Air Force. In total, several dozen aircraft of various purposes took part in the operation.

    No, it’s clear that any action can be summarized as "операция", but is it fair to call this the usual exercises with the transfer of air groups?

          In-in, I already thought that someone attacked Guam, and here - on you. A major operation to fly birds to warm regions. A very large initiative, of course. Maybe in Guam they will break less?

          inside the office, they will call it a "special operation" .... it is, the guam is essentially a striped territory, so you can't call it an operation anyway ... or Arthrin's case

        David doesn’t understand her. If you read between the lines, then we practiced screwing to avoid harm. That's the whole story.
        This "initiative" is due to the fact that in the United States fear possible missile strikes from China and the DPRK on bases in the Pacific region in the event of a real military confrontation.

      Why not? They rode from Alaska to Guam, including Japs and Yuzhkors. Operational and tactical exercises, however.

    Shota tells me that Bidon is making one of the biggest mistakes in US history. strongly pushing China to cooperate with the Russian Federation. Then the US aviation will have to be dispersed at home.

    So maybe it's easier not to bring the situation to a military confrontation? Or delusions of grandeur and "exclusivity" do not allow you to do this? It is difficult to be called a hegemon and pull this strap in our difficult times. All "progressive and most democratic" humanity empathizes with the American people (irony).
