British Navy: F-35 fighters from an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean Sea are ready at any time to support the ships of the British Navy in the Black Sea

80

The British Department of Defense has named the types of warships that will enter the Black Sea. Earlier it was reported that it will be a frigate and destroyer of the Royal Navy. The information was confirmed. At the same time, it is specified that Britain will send a Type 45 destroyer with a displacement of 7,5 thousand tons and a Type 28 frigate with a displacement of about 5 thousand tons to the Black Sea water area.


Frigates of the British naval forces of this type are armed with American Harpoon anti-ship missiles and British-made Sea Wolf anti-aircraft missile systems.

Modern destroyers Type 45 carry on board the PAAMS air defense missile system with a maximum range of 80 km to an aerodynamic target, the Phalanx CIWS shipborne anti-aircraft artillery system, which is used to destroy anti-aircraft missiles with a speed of no more than Mach 2.



In the British press, citing the military command of the United Kingdom, it is said that the F-35 fighters on board the aircraft carrier "Queen Elizabeth" will be "on high alert."

From a British Navy post:

F-35 stealth fighters from the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean Sea are ready to support the British Navy ships in the Black Sea at any time.

It should be noted that the British Navy aircraft carrier itself is indeed located in the Mediterranean Sea. Initially, he was sent to the Pacific Ocean "to contain the Chinese Navy."

It turns out that with the help of one aircraft carrier group, London is trying to "contain" both Russia and China. But since it is impossible in principle to do this at the same time, they decided to leave China for later. In the meantime, the F-35s are "combat-ready" only "in the direction" of the Black Sea.

British press:

While the Defense Department insists that pre-planned deployments are common, they are taking place at a time of heightened fears of conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Russian troops are accumulating along the border, against this backdrop, clashes in eastern Ukraine between the army and pro-Russian separatists.

The Reuters news agency recalled that a few days earlier, President Joe Biden refused to send US Navy warships to the Black Sea after a telephone conversation with Vladimir Putin.

                Most likely they want to get rid of the F-35 completely, so they found a reason to do it.

                The F-35B Lightning II, the fifth-generation short-take-off and vertical landing fighter, is devastating the British Ministry of Defense, General Richard Dunnat, who headed the General Staff of the country's Armed Forces (AF) in 2006-2009, reports to The Mirror.


                According to him, the cost of one F-35B Lightning II is 80 million pounds (more than 110 million dollars) with a flight hour price reaching 90 thousand pounds (over 125 thousand dollars).

                According to the military, such spending "will distort the defense budget for decades," and the British Army will be the losers.

                “The Russians are laughing at us, the Americans are shaking their heads,” the military said, speaking about the combat readiness of the British Armed Forces.

        The Brit has a version of the F-35B and has a shorter range than the F-35A. Accordingly, air refueling will be required. I strongly doubt that Perdogan will allow the Brits to refuel over his territory.

      that's not the point.
      with the load and range that they have from the deck, these aircraft cannot help ships that are near the Crimea in any way. This is one of the main problems of the penguin - even in the land version, it does not have a sufficient range.
      And from the deck, he can fly relatively far only with a minimum combat load - for example, 2 sidewinder missiles, i.e. useless.

          They will always be a little further, from the declared range of destruction of air defense systems, why should they substitute their "boards" in the sky !? Well, even they will light up - only the very fact of refueling, and it is not so long in time, and then the F-35, making false maneuvers in flight and changing course, will go into a "fog" of low visibility ... and that's it. , eagles are relatively safe !!!

      Similarly, these two ships, ours can cover the KR or the same Daggers, because the MiG-31K with Daggers on board is located very nearby. The British were embarrassed to send the aircraft carrier to the Black Sea, and they sent 2 of their ships to the slaughter. They do not feel sorry for them, unlike an aircraft carrier. It is noteworthy that the Americans did not send their ships for slaughter, but transferred this honorable role to Great Britain. This already says a lot.

            Well, I don’t know how accurate they are, but in 1983, from Syria, they sniffed at an aircraft carrier ... It seemed like it was 250 km away ...

              The Houthis also did not hit an American destroyer quite recently, but they did hit the HSV-2 Swift. But we are not discussing the Syrians and the Houthis, are we?

                  In 83, I left the army from the institute, trained in Chebar, got a junior. sergeant continued to serve in the GSVG, and so then 75% of people from the southern republics served, what do you know about the literacy of urgently conscripted military personnel in the USSR? Don't touch the current generation, they are not all the same either!

                    Stupid for sure, before 3 soldiers in the forest were left to harvest round timber for a week and everything was OK, schA left 2 almost died, one ran away
                    Where was the equipment I had Lieutenants 2 X year olds were from Baumansky
                    The hydrograph for 7 months one left the Hawaiian course lost, the minders themselves sorted out the chassis, and now minders everywhere kill the chassis at once and the tug goes behind the bpc ... Warriors hi

                      So you send the majors with the colonels into the forest to harvest round timber, it will be more fun, but you don’t need to substitute conscripts!
                      As for the turbine bulkhead, you got really excited, and screw up the diesel engine - this was in the 80s at a time, do not forget that the conscripts did not study to be minders, for this service life is not enough. We had drivers who could not even drive, what kind of engine device could he find out about?

                        Oh, tell me about the minders, they sorted it out and restored the course, the tug never followed, there was already enough knowledge, dt 75 in the 8th grade was sorted out and served for 3 years ...

                        And you try to sort out the new engines, can you change the blades on the turbine? Well, or "shamanize" the rudder installation? Or adjust the gearbox from the turbine to the propellers?
                        The times were not the same, yes, we were sorting out the main engine on the RS-33, when the sleeve burst, it was even possible to sort out the high-pressure fuel pump and press the nozzles, but this is all already the last century and will not help.

      It is noteworthy that the Americans did not send their ships for slaughter, but transferred this honorable role to Great Britain.

    In the meantime, the F-35s are "combat-ready" only "in the direction" of the Black Sea.
    Well, yes, just like "combat-ready" and "in the direction", in quotes only .., and behind them from the Crimea, something like this and also "combat-ready":

    Duc, that's good. We were told so at the CWP lesson. Everyone is good ... And the island lion, which has faded from time to time, should publicly demonstrate the presence of the long-awaited new artificial jaw prosthesis. And the Russian Armed Forces, to really look at the quality of this remake. Compare, for one, with the fact that the same Tel Aviv already has in the air ... And so, the opportunity for our MiG-31, which is on experimental combat duty, for training, to wave "Daggers". The target is just for them. Moreover, the "last Tudorsha", in terms of her performance characteristics and the composition of the carrier-based air group, is a "multi-purpose" lady, not a "striker". The escort, I suppose, is more modest. And "target sizes" too. In a word, there is a reason, first of all, to assess, not how the islanders "can us" in the waters of the World Cup. And how, we are them. All along the route, from Gibraltar to the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles ...

    F-35s from an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean Sea are ready at any time to support the ships of the British Navy in the Black Sea
    As I understand it, Russia and China, which the British also "restrain", need to be frightened. This is what the former "mistress of the seas" means - a pair of ships and the enemy trembles.

    that it will be a frigate and destroyer of the Royal Navy.

    Is that right, without a hegemon, and will they enter? Alone! And won't they be scared?
    And it's also interesting how the F-35 with such a characteristic
    "Combat radius of action without PTB and air refueling -1080 km"
    they will be supported from Mediterranean.

    There are no questions, these "invisibles" can fly to the Black Sea only in this way.
    The British probably dream of how F-35 units hover over Moscow, frighten the residents of St. Petersburg, and fly over the endless Volgograd steppes, frightening herds of wild antelopes. And there it is not far from the Urals ... I remember from history once there lived such a "great friend of the English people", either an Austrian, or a German, or someone else from distant relatives who loved to fly over the indicated area, and over the Crimea too. He ended badly only, exactly at the end of April, frightened to death by the cannonade of quite visible Russian cannons and "Katyusha". Mid-spring is generally an indicator of the mental health of some people.
