McCain attacked the developers of F-35 with criticism, calling the situation with the supply of aircraft in the US Air Force a tragedy

82
US Senator John McCain, who chairs the weapons committee, severely criticized both the newest American Fighter-bomber of the 5 generation F-35 and the work related to the creation of this military aircraft. According to McCain, recently he sees only the advertisement of the aircraft against the background of the constant statements of developers and the military that certain constructive defects are being identified. McCain states that all this pushes potential buyers away and creates obvious problems for putting the F-35 into service with the US Air Force in the proper quantity.


McCain attacked the developers of F-35 with criticism, calling the situation with the supply of aircraft in the US Air Force a tragedy


McCain walked through and at the gigantic cost of the entire F-35 creation program.

RIA News Give a fragment of McCain’s statement:
The performance of the F-35 program is both a scandal and a tragedy in terms of cost, timing and quality of work. The development of the F-35 has already stretched for more than 15 years. The cost has more than doubled from initial estimates.


McCain recalled that the US plans were to build more than 1 thousand such aircraft by the year 2016.

McCain:
Where are these thousand planes? In reports - only 179. This can not affect our combat capability.


The senator recalled that the program is designed for up to 2040 year. And according to McCain, around 1000 F-35 with the current pace of work and the number of flaws will indeed be delivered to the USAF, but not to 2016, but 2040.

John McCain:
But only in 2040 will these planes become hopelessly outdated.


McCain on the flaws in the fifth generation aircraft:
There are problems with maintenance, test software, instability of the radar. Deficiencies in the sensors, fuel system, structural damage during testing, deficiencies in engine reliability, limitations in the crew rescue system, which caused restrictions on the weight of the pilots, and possible vulnerability to cyber attacks.


It must be recalled that in the Pentagon’s program, the purchase of 2,5 from thousands of F-35 planes is listed. The total amount spent on this program is a whopping 0,4 trillion dollars.

            Well here ....- Mackayushka is not omnipotent. He tried as best he could. This terrible aircraft carrier was stronger! But he still managed to drive him to repair! laughing

            How is it? - aircraft carrier - "Forrestal".



            The Forrestal was sent for repairs, and the recovered McCain on the Oriskani aircraft carrier was bombed by Hanoi.

              I read a funny thing here in "Soldiers' Tales". there is a story about how one of our captain of the submarine dreamed of making a loop on it and drowning this aircraft carrier. I will not retell everything, it is not difficult to find, but at the end of this story there is a moment of this "feat" of McCain. very funny bike, laughed heartily

      History is silent, but the Americans themselves say that not a single pilot, NONE, in the entire history of US aviation, has done as much damage to his army as McCainushka laughing
      “To begin with, McCain sank his plane off the Texas coast, but escaped himself, ready for new exploits. laughing
      Then he accidentally flew into the restricted area over British Gibraltar, where he, mistaking him for an unidentified stranger, was nearly shot down. laughing
      Later, during one of the flights in Spain, he caught the wing of a power transmission line fighter, ditching another combat vehicle. laughing
      On July 29, 1967, at about 11 a.m., immediately after lunch for the officers' officers, the American aircraft carrier Forrestol burned down in the Gulf of Tonkin. Needless to say that McCain was on it? Moreover, evil tongues claim that it was he who accidentally flashed a war rocket from his plane, standing on the deck, which caused a fire (and the papa admiral again dismissed him). The official reason, however, was declared a “power surge in the on-board network” ... Most of the witnesses to the fire, and this was 134 crew members, died in it, destroyed 21 combat aircraft, and the aircraft carrier was put out of action for a year! laughing
      In October 1967, he was shot down during one of the raids on Hanoi. fool
      Or maybe he wassat they handed the order, maybe it's our saboteur laughing

        It is not known why, and without permission, with a cudgel, McCain climbed into the cockpit of a carrier-based fighter and accidentally / not accidentally (the story is silent about this laughing ) pressed the missile reset button (namely, the reset and not the start) from a strike on the deck of one of the missiles, the marching engine started and it landed in the superstructure laughing laughing Well, then everyone knows.

      It's still a very positive moment when lawmakers criticize military projects. Although in Russia I do not remember that State Duma deputies criticized the T-14 or T-50. Although most likely this is due to the impeccability of these projects. This is not a "wunderwaffle" F-35))))

        True :)) If you are not bothered to study the history of the development of T-50 and Armata, then you can easily make sure that this military equipment is created in a reasonable amount of time for relatively little money.
        Unfortunately, the image of the T-50 was spoiled by Bondarev, who every year promised to put this aircraft in series, although these promises were obviously impossible. Why he did this is unclear, but here the questions are not for the creators of PAK FA but for our commander in chief.

    The single-engine F-35 single-seat aircraft is a vital example of an old saying that a camel is a horse, if the commission so decided. Imagine a flying Swiss army knife that can be used in an air battle, from which you can drop bombs and conduct reconnaissance. When fine tuning the hardware, the F-35A becomes subtle enough to be used in the Air Force. The ability to make a vertical landing allows the F-35B to land on amphibious assault ships. And the design of the F-35C, designed for the Navy, allows it to be used in heavy operations from aircraft carriers.

    “We put all our eggs in one F-35 basket,” said Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn. It would seem that with this approach, the military should have been very conservative in developing this machine. But in fact, the Pentagon did just the opposite. He decided to build three versions of one aircraft at an average price of $ 160 million each (Problem No. 1); Agreed that the planes should be multi-purpose, capable of performing different tasks (problem No. 2); and then he began to produce them when the drawings were not yet finalized - more than ten years before the completion of the most important developmental tests (problem No. 3). The military has already spent $ 373 million to repair purchased aircraft, and the final cost of repairing defective machines is estimated closer to 8 billion.

      The Flying Swiss Knife is an interesting metaphor. Usually F35 is called
      "Computer with wings". The Americans have come up with a difficult thing - the real 5th generation.
      When we hone it (the first planes will land in Israel in December),
      the plane will go like hot cakes as it was with F16.

          Israel received not only a glider, but also the full F-35 program code, we are hooked to it
          precision weapons and instruments. For this, Lockheed will receive logs of aircraft behavior on sorties
          and improve the design. So it was with F16, the jambs were removed quickly.

        When we hone it (the first planes will land in Israel in December),
        the plane will go like hot cakes as it was with F16.

        So tell us about the real possibilities of this machine.
        In general, Netanyahu recently in Moscow for a reason not so often. After the Syrian operation, the Russian Aerospace Forces especially.
        There were proposals from Israel (to follow the path of India) to buy not only American equipment. Let’s see .. There the Washington Omsk steers, while ... request

          Still would! The war in Lebanon may erupt suddenly
          then there will not be solitary Israeli planes,
          but whole squadrons. And therefore it is important to define "friend or foe"
          with videoconferencing.

    And we still swear at our military-industrial complex, they say, money is "sawed". Yes, ours never dreamed of such a scale! If it were not for the printing press, Matrasia would have long ago been bent from such expenses.

    The development of F-35 has already stretched over more than 15 years. Cost more than doubled compared to initial estimates.

    McCain, in his stupid anger, is ready to sprinkle the floor of the world with saliva. Apparently, of the trillions that went to the F-35, nothing fell to him, so he raised a bark. It looks like the lobby to resume production of Raptors said "fas"
    And about the promised 1000 pieces of Lightings ... well, neither their partners nor they want to buy these gold bars in such quantities.

    Not! McCain is wrong!
    The main thing now is to return the lava!
    He sees advertising, he said, and this is the engine of trade.
    And why criticize, sell faster to Europe, there will be new means. There Ukraine and armored personnel carriers with cracks are sold and the numbers on planes are interrupted after repairs (for the Croats) and nothing else is advertised.
    He will criticize so loudly, Trump will not take to himself. Business is a delicate matter!

    Although in Russia I do not remember that State Duma deputies criticized the T-14 or T-50. Although most likely this is due to the impeccability of these projects. This is not an F-35 "wunderwaffe"))))

    Something from your evil irony of hopelessness smacks of.
    State Duma deputies are specialists in relevant fields?
    Those who are specialists are now just working, eliminate shortcomings, "bring to mind." Whatever happens with the F-35.
    The T-50, unlike the F-35, has not yet completed testing and development. Here they will present the finished result - then a bunch of critics so dear to your heart will come running right over everything that is done in Russia.
    And they will begin to bark viciously in a 666 sip.
    ... And as the caravan went to itself, it would go.

      There is one. Israel put a lot on the penguin, so the Jews are extremely sensitive to any criticism of the 35th.
      It is also superimposed on the fact that at one time they were refused the sale of the 22nd.
      And in the absence of an aircraft with reduced visibility, their opportunities for operations against neighbors, near and far are largely narrowed.
      In fact, they need them in order to blackmail Iran with the possibility of surprise striking at targets.

    Good man McCain. A little nervous, but it can be understood. )))
    I generally suspect that he still works for us. But in vain he drove the F-35. Nice plane! Ours carried out just a brilliant operation, allowing the Americans to steal our "promising" aircraft, so that they began to make an F-35 out of it.

      That's right. F-35B started with the drawings of the notorious Soviet Yak-141. Drawings of which the Americans officially bought from Yakovlev Design Bureau after a year of collaboration.
