F-22 on-board computers are completely out of date - US Air Force general



American General Michael Hostage (pictured): "The F-35 are not air superiority planes, they are F-22 fighters, but the on-board computers are so outdated that there are no such components even in the kid's game console ..."

Even if the new Chinese fighters are “cheap imitations”, the rapidly growing Chinese air force with new generation airplanes in the coming years is ready to challenge American air supremacy, reports February gnmodo.com 4.

To prevent such a course of events, the US Air Force will need a lot of fighters of the new generation regardless of their cost, says General Michael Hostage. In an interview with the Air Force Times, the general outlined his vision for the future of the US Air Force. In his opinion, the F-35 fighter jets are not air superiority aircraft, they are the F-22 Raptor fighter jets. The US Air Force should use the Raptors as efficiently as possible, Hostage is convinced.

The F-15 and F-16 fighters, even considering modernization, will become hopelessly outdated by the middle of the next decade. “Our opponents are building the Air Force, which in their power will surpass our fleet of fourth-generation aircraft,” says the general.


The problem with the F-22 is the on-board computers (pictured), which “are so outdated that their components cannot be found even in the kid’s game console,” says Hostage. “These aircraft must go through an expensive modernization process if we want to maintain their combat potential,” the general said.

      We are only for, let them spend more money on, an already super expensive project, nothing will get on others, America’s debt is already going over the top for 17 trillion dollars! Therefore, they will allocate money or not for us only a plus !!!

    "Obsolete" ... Yes, electronic components a couple of years ago every half a year became obsolete, not only for them, but everywhere.
    It smacks of "hurray-patriotism".
    I will not talk about our elemental base in this industry, on the one hand I'm tired, and I do not want to spoil my mood ...
    And on the other, I’m suddenly mistaken? Is there hope.

    F-22 on-board computers are completely outdated - US Air Force General.
    Eka, surprised a hedgehog with a bare ass!
    These computers were outdated even when they were adopted by the Americans. And even then they were well aware of this. And now they’re making a sour face for that. to slaughter grannies under the cries of the Air Force lagging behind.
    fuli say - "stinks", and the techniques are the same ...

    F-22s were created in the late 90s. Early 2000. Then some tasks were now different!
    Computers become obsolete every 2 years! nothing surprising here! While you are chasing one, the other manages to become outdated!
    That's a mustache!
    Americans have found something to surprise then ..... Ours have done trickier))) they haven’t done anything for 20 years and immediately jumped over))) a whole technological LAYOUT!

    American taxpayers! You will have to fork out more - a new threat to the national security of SaShi has appeared in the form of aging computers by leaps and bounds.
    But the moral is whether this "outdated" filling copes with the tasks assigned to it? And it's not a fact that when new equipment is installed, the plane will not be shot down by an outdated missile. repeat No one has canceled the cost-effectiveness co-officer yet ...

    Mister General probably should somehow argue his demands. Which potential opponents have better computers on planes than on American ones, and also give the characteristics ... But no, everything is in words, people of course go, like "Well, yes, I have had so many computers changed since 2000, but now the tablet characteristics are better than those of the best personal machine in 2000, so yes, the general says correctly. "

      Dear, the thing is ...
      that all other sectors of the world industry have long switched to the option of a one-time non-repairable performance (computers, tablets, mobile phones ... washing machines, refrigerators ... and there, and there ...)!
      3-5year maximum - and to eject with a change to a new model ...
      Next in line is the auto industry. Our and your pinocchioes didn’t realize for a long time - the guarantee was over, it’s time to change, this is usually 3. And the geyser recommends an 5let-time machine ...

      Against this background, Toko military stuck on the old traditions - 20-25let a service life! Well, where is Godizzo, global netuti wars, everything does not have time to be destroyed naturally and burn ...
      Like if not TAG, then by barking and skating - boom your own way ...
      Pointing to even detskie players.

      In fact, of course, the electronics on the Fu22 are sufficient for their purposes, and not the fact that the change will benefit. If Toko finally does not introduce the fashionable nonche tsatski-helmet index, glasses from Google and others ...

    known issue:

    http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/I960

    They have not been released for more than 13 years. American housewives had to buy the I960 through the Internet around the world, and sell the Pentagon, so that he, in turn, could provide the firm with such accessories that even today are not used in coffee makers because of their moral aging.

    In the end, Ryton until recently, on-board computers F-22 (CIP - Common Integrated Processor) worth several million dollars each riveted from waste materials for the Pentagon.

    http://www.raytheon.com/capabilities/products/f22_cip/

    The truth is that Ryton has had a replacement for a long time, but in order to use the new Common Integrated Processor, you need a bunch of tests that make the upgrade unattractive by the cost / effectiveness criterion.

      ... the Yankees have always been careless in planning and seeing the future.

      The Soviet armed forces in these matters have always been consistent.
      Suppose a complex is put into operation, in this case, it doesn’t matter: rocket, plane or tank — be kind for the entire life cycle — provide and stock up with a given standard — raw materials, REI components, components and assemblies.
      If an aircraft with a life cycle of 25 years, with mouthguards through 5let, be prepared, in addition to the planned replacement of components, to overhaul and re-equip 1-2 once in this time. Moreover, a lot of things are being predicted for this modernization - a new engine, a new weapon, and so on. So that the complex is reborn again, becoming practically new in capabilities ....
