Washington allowed only one importer to modify F-35 - Israel

81
Usually, the United States does not allow foreign buyers to modify their military products, this also applies to the latest F-35, but Israel has been exempted, reports Look with reference to the magazine Wired.




“Israel will be the first US ally to receive the aircraft. This is expected to happen in December. In the foreseeable future, the IDF will be the only armed forces who will be allowed to modify the car to fit their needs, ”the magazine writes.

In particular, the Israelis "will install specialized software on F-35 in order to integrate new machines into the command system of the country's air force," says the publication.

Missiles, which equip the fighter, will also be Israeli-made.

According to the publication, "one of the reasons why Israel was allowed to modify the fifth-generation fighter was the close cooperation of the military of the two countries in the field of high technologies."

Another reason, most likely, is that "Israel is a key ally of the United States in one of the most problematic regions of the world - in the Middle East," the magazine notes.

      And the big question is which of them is the main ... Although for a long time it has been clear who .. Right now they will run from the promised land and explain that everything acquired exclusively by their excessive work ..

      To upgrade something that doesn’t really fly ...

      It will fly in Israel. There is a country like the Moscow region in size. So there’s no need to fly really. I took off after 30 seconds, launched a rocket and sat down laughingMoreover, the planes are "free."
      In particular, the Israelis "will install specialized software on F-35 in order to integrate new machines into the command system of the country's air force," says the publication.
      When the engine is started, the display will show "shalom" on. laughingWell, in a region where there are a lot of "friends" who have air defense of the level of the 50s of the last century. That will be just supermen. Look around quietly to Iran and jerk off there so that it will not be a flock of it.

        I want to add .F35 this aircraft was made against weak countries. And if it were not for Russia it would have been adopted long ago. This is a plane of "clear sky." For f15 b f18, for example, you need to fly calmly all medium and shorter range air defense from the enemy turn off Yugoslavia remember Iraq and so on. And in order for this miracle to fly quietly, it would be necessary that the anti-aircraft defense system was outdated in the 50s, 60s of the last century. And against the Russian air defense systems, it's just a "penguin". So they went crazy in the Pentagon. The plane was made, but against Russia it was just a "penguin" not decently mnogo. Even by American measures. And the Russians have both air defense and aviation ready for a "warm" meeting. laughing Now on s400 and other Russian air defense systems. Orders will tumble down bully So do not tear your soul, let the Jews play with the "new" American toy, even if I want to.

            And at what speeds do an air battle take place? Or attack the air defense system? I give a tip the average speed of the tank in battle 25km / h, and the maximum? Aviation, of course, has a lower drop in speed, but they do not work at the speeds at which they fly.

              Close maneuverable aerial combat can be fought at different speeds - but on all of them the F-35 will lose to any 4th generation fighter, and possibly to some representatives of the 3rd. His aerodynamics are lousy, the wing area is very small, the mass is large (which is why the thrust-to-weight ratio was not very good), the fuselage does not create lifting force, there is no controlled thrust vector, and there is no cruising supersonic. And the EPR he specifically increased in order to fit into the congressional restrictions on the sale of stealth aircraft abroad. It turned out to be a freak. As for your statement about the unimportance of maximum speed, there is a limit to everything. For a bomber, such a speed would still be normal, but when performing the interceptor function, speed has one of the most important indicators.

      The Israelis have a point of view about the Soviet Union and Russia.
      "Everything that is conveyed to the Russians will most likely end up in the hands of the Arabs of Palestine, Syria, etc."

      They have had too many wars over the past 60 years, in which the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation were directly or indirectly on the side of the enemies.
      And the Russian Weapons were killing them, albeit in Arab hands.
      And even in Russian hands too!
      If you look at the participants in the hostilities of the Arab-Israeli wars since 1965 year.

      To hit yourself with your own weapon is, to put it mildly, stupidity bordering on insanity.
      Weapons and military technologists in their country are created for their safety.
      Why create a weapon directed against himself?
      That Tel Aviv and does not supply in the Russian Federation anything capable of harming them.

        This problem can be solved with the help of a legally binding contract and it can be controlled by ISRAEL ...
        if Jews don’t follow this path, then they don’t trust us ...
        it means relations between our countries will not go beyond trade in secondary goods and services.

        Therefore, talking about friendship and cooperation with ISRAEL always provokes caustic sarcasm in me.
        As for the grievances of the Jews ... we can recall the activities of their comrades in their time a lot of salted RUSSIA and the Russian people.

        However, I will not develop this topic further ... it is too provocative and they will easily send me to the ban ... I am silent like a fish.

          It's not about "developing the theme."

          The point is the ability to look at the task from all sides.
          You just have to try to think and eventually learn to understand the cause and effect relationships of certain actions.

          If you know how to look at the same map of the area through the eyes of both defense and attack, you have a chance of winning.
          If only in one direction, you always lose.
          Always look from all sides and analyze.

    No, it’s just that the Jews always have the threat of a real war and have experience of sanctions from arms suppliers. So people want to control their own, in the future, main combat aircraft. Other users have a theoretical threat of war (not frightened by their comrades in life) and therefore eat what the Americans give them. In addition to Israel, even Britain gave access to the source codes for the equipment.

            Why not? The engine resource is not bad, the combat readiness is high, they service themselves, Israel produces ammunition itself. By the 2nd month of the war, only birds and flies will fly at enemies, there will be no air defense at all. And what will prevent the F-35 from bombing for a long time and flying in a protracted war? The supply of spare parts is only the fact that engine maintenance is established in Turkey.

              By the second month of the war, the enemy will draw conclusions and switch to combat tactics that reduce losses from air raids ...
              F-35 will not chase single targets in the desert.
              As for air defense, the enemy can use the most unexpected options ...
              The war in SYRIA shows that even the civilian population is used to protect against air raids ...

            Again you have the wrong prerequisites.
            Have you seen the history of the Arab-Israeli wars?

            Were there protracted wars?

            They are in the ring of enemies.
            In complete blockade, they are very easy to take.

            They will not withstand a protracted war in principle.
            Not more than 2 weeks.
            For simply small.

            The whole concept of their defense is this: inflicting over the course of 3-7 days such unacceptably overwhelming damage to all possible surroundings that will force the attackers to stop the aggression.
            And I think so that they are calculating their strength in the simultaneous attack of the entire Islamic environment (from Syria, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Sauddites, Qatar).
            I believe that they will cope with all this code during 1-2 weeks.
            They have enough weapons and equipment.
            But no longer.

      Yesterday, the article was about a problem in the software, that it requires a reboot after three hours. And in general, 179 pieces have been manufactured in fact. True, yesterday I went through the links, they promise that Lockheed Martin will eliminate all the jambs by 2019, the cost of the fighter will fall to $ 80 million (although it is not clear what officials in the Pentagon and congressmen will eat if they cut off the lobbyist delta for "product promotion"), the conveyor will be released to the design capacity of 17 cars per month. Everything will fly, shoot, be network-centric and generally super-duper. Until then, YOUR SYSTEM IS FAILED AND WILL BE RELOAD! PLEASE WAIT!

    Do not overestimate and publicize the possibilities of Israel. If they are so technologically advanced, then where is their 5th generation fighter or at least a technology demonstrator? So far, their defense industry can only copy the French phantom of the 3rd generation, the drawings of which were safely stolen by Jewish spies.

      What do you mean "only your own"?
      On the 35th, a single software package that controls everything and which is constantly buggy.
      Israel cannot rewrite it, because there is engine control, etc. etc.
      Any integration of "only your own" into it will require a change in this software package. Which is unstable there too.

    Thank you, of course, for your attention, but why you guys are so worried about the fighting ability of the Israeli Air Force I don’t understand. wink
    In general, we are slowly getting ready. Not without it.

    The first two fifth-generation F-35i combat aircraft will arrive in Israel in December 2016. Without waiting for their arrival, the Israeli Air Force began testing local weapons, converted specifically for the new aircraft.
    The exact information is currently classified, but it is known that under the F-35, among other things, Spice systems were modified, turning conventional bombs into "smart" ones, as well as air-to-air missiles with infrared and radar guidance.

    According to the Flightglobal portal, the tests were carried out on F-15 and F-16 aircraft.

    And toss the woods into the fire of the argument. And then the policy is already sickened. Here is an opinion from American flyers.
    While the U.S. Air Force plans to announce the initial operational readiness of F-35A fighters by the end of the year, observers still warn of schedule delays, logistics system malfunctions, and software failures, defensenews.com reports (May 11).
    But at the Edwards base, other moods reign. Pilots and technicians say they are happy to work with this plane. In their opinion, the F-35 is a huge step forward compared to existing combat aircraft. According to Lt. Col. Raja Chari, the F-35 pilot can fully concentrate on the mission, which is achieved thanks to the highest level of automation of the technical systems of the aircraft. “Managing it is as easy as breathing,” he says, with extensive experience flying F-15s. The pilot would see two large iPads, and he can separate and enlarge the image on the display to see the operation of different systems. Pilots are also very pleased with the high maneuverability of the aircraft at large angles of attack, but this information is largely classified, the officer said.
    In combination with a third-generation helmet, avionics gives the pilot a complete picture of air combat, the information content is much more than on previous-generation aircraft, says Shari. A plane with the final Block 3F software that provides for the use of the AIM-9X short-range aerial combat missiles, combined with a high-tech board and helmet-mounted target designation, completely changes the picture of a dogfighting game-changer, says the lieutenant colonel.
    Cody Patters, an aircraft technician with experience with the A-10 and F-16, says F-35 maintenance has become much easier. The only thing he does not like is waiting for the computer to restart to complete a new task. “We could teach you how to serve the F-35 in 15 minutes,” he says.
    The on-board computer is important for detecting damage to the stealth skin of the aircraft, and the maintenance of the on-board gun is also greatly simplified.

          Our flyers are already training in Edwards on American 35's. And in December of this year, the first 2 cars will arrive to us. I read the impressions of our flyers from F-35. We have to rebuild thinking. On the 4 generation, they got used to breaking through the air defense system at an altitude of 50 meters. On the 35-x this is done at an altitude of 5-6 km due to stealth

              Why laughter? Well, one stealth shot down Yugoslav air defense, but the country didn’t cover the country. Other stealth cars made hundreds of sorties and bomb strikes and returned to the base. Yes, bring down a dozen of these machines by the Yugoslavs, but in the end, get the same rulatta, who would be better off from this?
