Five non-nuclear European countries of NATO will receive American nuclear bombs

The draft US Air Force budget for the 2015 year provides for the integration of nuclear bombs B61-12 on the F-16 and Tornado fighters of the Air Force of the five NATO countries, reports fas.org 13 in March. Equipment aircraft under the carrier of nuclear weapons will begin in 2015 and end in 2017-2018.


Tactical equipment aviation non-nuclear block countries will significantly enhance the power of NATO nuclear forces in Europe. Fighter bombers F-16A / B of the Air Forces of Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey, as well as the PA-200 Tornado of the Air Forces of Germany and Italy will be equipped with nuclear weapons (in the photo).

Nuclear bombs will also be equipped with American fighter-bombers F-15E (integration began last year) and F-16C / D, strategic bombers B-2A, as well as fifth-generation fighters F-35A Lightning II, which will later replace the F-16. The US Air Force plans to equip all F-35 fighter jets in Europe by 2024 with nuclear weapons. F-35, capable of carrying nuclear weapons, will be supplied by the Air Force of the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey and, possibly, Belgium.



From the middle of 2020-s heavy bombs will be equipped with B61-12 nuclear bombs
Bombers new generation LRS-B US Air Force.

Re-equipment of aircraft under the carrier of nuclear weapons includes software upgrades, operational flight tests with full weapons integration. In 2015, seven flight tests of this nature are scheduled. The launch of the fully operational 61-12 nuclear bombs is planned for 2020 year. More than 1 billion are planned to be spent on this program, another 154 million will be spent on ensuring the safety of nuclear bases in Europe.

The integration of American nuclear weapons into combat aircraft of non-nuclear-weapon States that have signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) is at least debatable and contrary to NPT norms.

How the expansion of the number of countries in Europe that have access to nuclear weapons will affect the “bold reductions” of non-strategic (tactical) nuclear weapons of the United States and Russia on the continent to create a nuclear-free world in the future is another matter.

      It’s also how it will help ... And that means that we must withdraw nuclear weapons to the borders ... It's time to denounce the agreement on short and medium-range nuclear weapons. Stop fussing. And Belarusians will need to give the same bombs ... On the same day as they appear someone from non-nuclear ... Only by retaliatory, adequate measures can NATO and the USA be made to think at the beginning and then do ... As was the case with the Iskanders in Kaliningrad ...

      It won't help them ... "
      ..This is what the Yankees set the goal ..
      1. Marasmic goal: To bomb Russian tank tanks breaking through the main NATO defense zone .. So Russia does not plan to invade there .. Maybe NATO plans to attack Russia ??????? so Europe is NOT united ... and this will be its last breath ..without exhalation ..
      2. Element of intimidation ... There is nobody to frighten .. Frightened ...
      3. An element of complacency .. of yourself and Europe ... they say know our people .. We will blow ourselves up ... but, kamikaze in another place .. it seems ..on the Japanese islands
      4. The most plausible - As a way to closely tie your occupied satellites to yourself .. since 1945 .. Here and the American missile defense system in Europe has served the same purposes .. True, it is unclear where the nuclear dirt will fall on whose heads from the sale of non-existent Iranian missiles .. And will Iran fight against Europe ???
      5. Do not let the American military-industrial complex wither away, the main source of income for the empire .., which supplies weapons of death to all corners of the world ..
      .. This already happened in Europe in the 90s of the 20th century, when the Yankees were deploying ground-based cruise missiles and Pershing-2 missiles in European countries .. nothing good came of it ...

      When the world enters the era of revising borders and redrawing the map of the world, no one cares about treaties and laws. I don’t know how Turkey and the Netherlands, but Germany itself is able to make an atomic bomb. Maybe it even exists, and this operation is only for the fact that it would be easier for her to enter the "nuclear club".

    Here the author was a little misleading ... the nuclear weapons will be from the US ARSENAL and under their control ... only the aircraft will be converted for the ability to use tactical nuclear weapons.
    However, our heavy fighters also have such capabilities.

    Our tactical nuclear missiles will nullify these attempts of the WEST anyway.

    The first strike at enemy airfields with these missiles will deprive them of the ability to take off altogether.

      This is how much money will it take?
      Every time many times more than on the link of airplanes with nuclear bombs in five countries to deliver.
      Feel the bits that Russia is slowly starting to gain momentum in development ...
      And we, in their opinion, will be forced, to ensure the status quo, to start an arms race in the framework of the 50s and 70s ... thereby swelling money into production, distribution, infrastructure, storage, disposal ... with all the ensuing consequences ...

      I heard something out of my corner about the climatic and some no less exotic, but effective types of weapons of the 21st century. But how much is this true? Will it not work out that we will manufacture and maintain, spending huge amounts of money on obsolete weapons, and rodents will thereby giggle to engage in new developments of an unknown weapon?
      These are reflections ... I have no specific facts, except for a rustle on the Internet and a couple of TV shows ... On this resource: "Climate weapons: technologies of the distant future or a reason to worry now?"

      And I would not be very happy with such information. Because this whole film looks like a "propaganda".
      Because the source from where all this is taken is not known.
      This may well be misinformation coming from the United States itself.
      No concrete evidence is given in this film, and what pop up in the open press was already known to all.
      This can be a very small piece of information about the overall situation.
      So the combat readiness of the US and NATO nuclear forces is a big question.
      We need more objective and specific information on this topic in order to draw conclusions.

    And also Kosovo and Croatia! Let them saw the loot further. As they say, not one good deed will not go unpunished!
    Information for consideration: Recently it was recognized that nuclear fuel for nuclear plants from Westinghouse does not stand up to criticism. And Russia is no longer going to supply uranium to the USA! Twenty years delivered for free, that's all! For twenty years, a crisis has occurred in this area in the USA ...
    What kind of nuclear bombs in FIG? Where do they come from? Fuel is aging! The US enrichment industry has degraded! In short, a good mine with a bad game.

      Borya Yeltsin leaked so much plutonium that it would be enough for 100 nuclear wars.

    Then why did you get to the bottom of Iran? After that, they will definitely "curtail" the nuclear program!

    Another spit by the United States on international agreements. They unilaterally withdrew from the ABM Treaty, and now, in fact, have "swallowed" the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons! Why on earth, in this case, should Russia fulfill all obligations to limit its nuclear weapons? Revive the BZHRK, deploy medium and shorter-range missiles with nuclear warheads on the territory of the allies, and remake all aviation under YB for Belarus. And more Iskander with YBG along the borders with NATO!

    The answer should be the withdrawal from the agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. It's time to stop the American engine, pulling everyone into the abyss. Only Russia can apply the brakes.

    I suspect that Barack Obama is a secret agent of the KGB. It will make Europe happy.

    It’s interesting, and if we put an atomic bomb in Iraq, what will happen?

      It is dangerous to Iraq, there the power is not stable. More reliable in Iran. But here on the forum then almost all Jews will disappear. So let them be in storage.

    ..It's time to denounce the agreement on short and medium range nuclear weapons

    Hi Sasha! Or maybe ride in Chukotka on the Fields winked
    And the island, some sort of buy in the Atlantic and put there a base, is also a matter.

    What is the problem? We need to distribute nuclear weapons to Iran, Syria, the Palestinians, and to someone else!
    Why is it possible for one, but not for others !? To everyone - so to everyone!

    System "Perimeter" nicknamed in the West "Dead Hand"
    Russia possesses the only weapon in the world that guarantees a retaliatory nuclear strike against the enemy, even in that horrible case, if we already have no one to decide on this strike. The unique system counterattacks automatically - and brutally.

    So far these are just words and perhaps preparatory work. The goal is to draw the Russian Federation into a new level of military spending. No need for unnecessary movements now - just continue what is being done - DEVELOPMENT OF SNF, air defense and anti-aircraft defense, re-equipment of the air force, and tactical nuclear weapons will be enough for everyone
