China as a "lobbyist" of the F-35 program in the APR

China as a "lobbyist" of the F-35 program in the APR

The American media write that although the fifth-generation F-35 fighter developed by Lockheed Martin faces various challenges, but in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region this combat aircraft enjoys a growing demand, reports

This interest is explained by the growing military power of China. The American Defense News magazine called China "the greatest F-35 seller in Asia." Worried about Beijing’s military ambitions, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Korea and Taiwan are planning to buy fighters of this type.

China continues to test the J-15 carrier-based fighter. It is reported that as of the end of 2013, more than 100 was landed on the aircraft carrier Liaoning.

    China is not an F-35 lobbyist, it is the states from China that make a scarecrow and push their trough ...

        human psychology in this regard is simple !!!! Well, they can’t understand that we are different .... they are ready at any moment to start a war anywhere in the world literally for any reason, and they can’t believe that we are not like them! From this and be afraid !!! They don’t have proverbs; they don’t judge people by themselves!

      Australia, Japan, Singapore, Korea, and especially Taiwan do not require US assistance in understanding the dangers from China. China itself is more than doing it ...

      Well, it’s not that tidy, with its declared TTX it’s really the strongest opponent (we don’t take into account the version with the vertical for MP). It just costs a lot, very expensive, and its maintenance is simply not really expensive, and training pilots is just how expensive space is, but they want to sell it unrealistically how much)))

      When buying this device, countries expect that they are buying not just an airplane, but + 6 US TAFs in addition, they don’t even suspect how they will be thrown later)

      if a war begins between them, then I think that without nuclear weapons it will not do.

    I doubt that in our time a war can begin between strong opponents

      Nowadays, just about anything can happen! The amers have, in the missile forces, some drug addicts! And what is there for them to cling to is unknown! No.

    Yeah, Indonesia is buying the Su-35S, not the F-35.

    A little off topic. In the news on the fifth, I heard that KNAPO will deliver the Ministry of Defense over 3 SU-150s within 35 years. Hooray! And a contract was signed for two more corvettes 20385 for the Amur plant. For the builders of helicopters very happy.
