U.S. Air Force to conduct simulated dogfighting exercise in Alaska with F-35 fighters

25

The American command decided to gradually strengthen the military component in Alaska. At the same time, there is an increase in the frequency of military exercises, including large ones. One of such exercises is planned by the US Air Force.


According to the latest data, the plans of the American military command include the holding of Red Flag 21-2 exercises in Alaska in June this year, in which more than a hundred combat aircraft will be involved, including fifth-generation F-35 fighters.

The Pentagon says that the main purpose of the exercise is to test the likely scenarios of air combat. For this, simulations of air confrontation with a conditional enemy will be carried out.

Not only American pilots will participate in air force maneuvers in Alaska. It is known that pilots of the Air Force of the Republic of Korea and Japan are invited to participate in the exercises "Red Flag 21-2". In total, it is planned to attract more than 1,5 thousand air force personnel to participate in air maneuvers.

Earlier, the American command announced that the Russian Aerospace Forces increased the number of their flights near the air borders of Alaska. For such flights, Russian strategic bombers are used. At the same time, when commenting on such flights, the Americans often state about "unprofessional and dangerous actions of Russian pilots." It must be assumed that professional and safe, according to the logic of the Pentagon, flights are exclusively American aviation anywhere in the airspace, including flights of strategic missile carriers in the region of the Russian Kuril Islands ...

    Don't they want to attract Russian fighter pilots? For training? Maybe they will be convinced of their professionalism and courage and calm down?

      They already attracted Hindus once. We are fully convinced of their professionalism and do not want to be dishonored anymore.

        The Americans were very pleased with the joint exercises with the Indians.
        They forced the Indian aces to squeeze the maximum out of the Su-30 fighters.
        They showed all the super-maneuverability of these aircraft in force majeure
        conditions. The Americans carefully monitored every minute of the exercise.
        And getting tips on collective tactics.
        Of course, the Indians won on the "shot down" (guests do not offend).
        And they were also very pleased.

          But if those exercises went exactly the way the Americans needed them, why weren't there other exercises?
          Did the Americans really know everything, everything, everything they needed in one go? Doubtful. However, this is exactly what you will answer. So do not bother, I understood you at once.

            Exercises, in which you can find out the characteristics of a (conditionally) hostile technique, are always held as long as necessary (and how much the other side agrees to participate).
            Obviously, new ones were not required (since theirs were).

              Training battles with the participation of the Su-30MKI were carried out once.
              What about verification? The data can be inaccurate, incomplete, incorrect, in the end.
              Therefore, the experiments are carried out several times.

                Training battles with the Su-30 are held regularly. In the modification of the Su-30MKM. Pilots and instructors of the Navy, Air Force, ILC develop skills to combat this aircraft, which allows the outdated and decommissioned F / A-18C / D to confidently fight and defeat the Su-30 with OVT in close maneuver combat.

          If you are talking about joint exercises in the mid-00s, then "it was a long time ago and not true" smile The Americans complained that the Indian side did not fully engage the Su-30 as they hoped. In addition, it suddenly turned out that the MiG-21 is a pretty tough nut to crack. Competently constructed actions of the Indians disrupted the work of the F-15.
          Once I read in an Indian magazine, I retell what is stored in my memory. The journalist, of course, did not regret the rainbow colors and metaphors. The Americans, too, apparently "cheated" and as a result showed that routine actions do not lead to success.

        Which we, until the summer of 1944, allowed to extract oil on Sakhalin (with the help of it, part of the cargo going to Vladivostok was fired through the Lend-Lease).
        And they were attacked in 1945 in violation of the existing treaty.

    We don't have a single fighter regiment in Chukotka, something else that needs to be intercepted too. Why do they keep large aviation forces in Alaska, and even such machines as f22?

      In Chukotka, the infrastructure and population (to maintain it) are also slightly ... not up to Alaskan.
      Level and number of airfields, again.

      Voters will have to be replaced en masse by Buryats. And even here there is no guarantee that they will not change their minds. smile
      Ask about the average salary in Alaska, as well as the rent for all residents from oil production. Nobody else can offer them this.
      Technique to plant too .. problematic. Only if you sink millions of ships, making a "bridge" No.

          Buryats were mentioned more often.
          Ok, then the Chukchi. Are they more reliable?
          So what if they prefer a high standard of living? smile
