Most of the airplanes and helicopters of the US Marine Corps are in non-operational status, reports TASS Fox News post.


Fox News: United States Marine Corps Aircraft in Failure


The main cause of equipment malfunction is “a reduction in military spending and the rapid aging of aircraft due to the active phase of operation during the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq,” the channel notes.

In its publication, the publication refers to the statistics of the US MP Corps and to the information obtained during conversations with military personnel of 2-x military bases in South and North Carolina.

“From the 276 F / A-18 Hornet fighters, only about 30% are ready for combat missions. From the 147 CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters, only 42 are intact, ”the channel reports.

Fox News recalls that "US military spending fell from $ 691 billion in 2010 to $ 560 billion in 2015."

“The American infantry for almost 15 years has been continuously involved in hostilities outside the country. Aircraft wears out faster, reducing allocations leads to a shortage of spare parts. And experienced mechanics quit their jobs and go to work in the private sector, where their services are in high demand and are generously paid, ”the TV channel explains.

According to the Marines themselves, "dismantling some helicopters into parts for repairing others has become almost the norm."

“It's like trying to make a modern Ferrari out of the car Cadillac 1995 of the year. You try to increase its speed and increase its efficiency, however, the old frame with the suspension makes itself felt, and the car breaks down all the time, ”said Sergeant Ugenhoer.

The interlocutors told reporters that the flight time of the pilots for objective reasons decreased markedly. Now it is about 4's hours a month. Ten years ago, this figure reached 30-hour. per month, the serviceman told the channel.

      Don’t give money .. give money, and print money .. print money ..! Something, they somehow forgot about their trillion-dollar debts, and they continue to rivet and rivet pieces of paper! Right now they rivet a couple of three-lardiks and put them into the defense again, and the world economy is bashfully keeping quiet, only perhaps Russia and China dared to switch to payment in the national currency!

      I don’t know how things really are, but this example is not entirely accurate. Simple products, such as knives, do not fail only from time to time, and any equipment has a period when it can be used. Even at the simplest valve in TU it will be written that it is suitable for so much time after release, even if it just lies in the warehouse.

      Not. Ka-bar did not suit me. I like our replica volume brown. Practical, damn it ... and the native is good, a dog, only a little expensive. Tested personally (sharpening may cause inconvenience for the inexperienced), I recommend it.
      On the topic, this is business, gentlemen. And nothing more. The principle is everywhere: give money and everything (well, almost everything, probably everything) can and will work.

    "Three things are needed for a war - money, money and money." Something like that with the Bonaparte. And Adolf agreed with him. Now they are boiling in neighboring pots, I hope. They do not learn anything, miserables.
    But the Americans in particular were intimidated - this is a revelation for them that they have ceased to obey them, moreover, they can break on the sacred exceptional ass. "Yoo okay? We're losing him," Sam's uncle.

    This is not news, but stuffing. The State Department monitors the correctness of the American media directly, and it is unlikely that he will let inadvertent information pass, which means that there is a clearly designated goal behind this: Help, we are unarmed in front of the bloodthirsty Russian hordes, we urgently need money. And the subsequent action to find and extract funds will already be justified by the plight of the "Army of Democracy".

    Another begging for money for an imaginary threat from whoever it comes from. The United States Army, or rather the military lobby, behaves like a homeless person in a transition who asks for alms, while the homeless person has golden mansions. Ultimately, if they allocate money, everything else will be as they say M. Zadornov: they are all stupid there and do not understand that nothing will come to (in this case, the army).

    What to say in vain? They cannot print money in uncontrolled quantities. Nobody canceled inflation and laws of economics. They can only print the amount for which they sell their "securities". And there are fewer and fewer people willing to buy them. If they do, it is only to postpone the "wave" that will sweep away the West (and not only) after the collapse of the United States.

    Thirty percent of the fleet, ready at the time of checks for sorties, is not such a bad indicator. US planes are not in warehouses, but in operation, which involves constant ongoing repairs. A maintenance aircraft, by definition, is not ready for departure. Well, they lied a little, of course, to dislodge additional financing. As without it. You say that everything is OK and they won’t give money.
