F-35 can unite the Air Forces of Belgium and the Netherlands

60
The Netherlands Air Force Commander, Alexander Schnitger, invited the governments of his country and Belgium to create a united air force, reports Military Parity.


F-35 can unite the Air Forces of Belgium and the Netherlands


According to Schnitger, both countries "must acquire F-35 fighter jets and jointly operate them."

“I see significant advantages in military cooperation between our countries. Why don't we build a common military Aviation? From my point of view, that would be natural. We could choose one type of fighter, ”he added.

The Dutch themselves have already chosen Lockheed Martin's F-35. In total, the country should receive (starting with 2019 g) 37 machines worth about € 5 billion.

Belgium also decided to purchase 34 units in the number of planes, allocating about € 3,5 billion for this purpose. According to the resource, “five types of aircraft - F-35, F / A-18 produced by the American company Boeing, Rafale of the French company Dassault Aviation, Typhoon of the European consortium Eurofighter and JAS 39 Gripen of the Swedish group Saab.

        And how many airfields will they have for two? Although, after such a radical solution to the issue of combining the Air Force (with the TU-160), one is enough for them.

          As of February 10.02.2016, 46, 6 fighter jets were manufactured, of which 929 take part in tests at 6 State Flight Testing Center in Akhtubinsk, 4 are at 23 State Aviation Personnel Training and Testing Center in Lipetsk, 23 are in service with the 4rd Fighter Aviation Regiment (Jomga, 11 of them in Syria) and 22 more were transferred to the XNUMXnd fighter air regiment (Central Corner).

          The unifying homosexuals WANT 70 F-35s, and in Russia ALREADY 46 SU-35s and production continues.

      And the Baltic states will buy one F-35 airplane on credit and form the United Baltic Air Force. True, a lot of banknotes (in currency) will go to service such an aircraft, but it will be the most advanced air force in the world with 100% of the latest technology. After that, it will be possible to start scaring Moscow with its invisible, invincible aircraft.

        Well then, it’s understandable - the Dutch bought F-35 at 135 million apiece, and the Belgians bought it for 103 million, then if the two air forces merge, the average price will be 2 million. And it will be insulting - the overpayment is already 119 million. and here it seems as if nothing comes out)))

Mattress covers have been imposed on you with your raw, non-flying plane, under the guise of a super-duper uber-plane, at an incredible price, and you will excuse me loshki and are happy about it. Your vaunted Fu-35 will not be able to overcome any advanced air defense system. Most likely, Iran will be too tough for you. So you and your wunderwolf will drive unarmed Palestinian terrorists across the desert! The American Fu-22 at least flies, and even then, the Americans are simply afraid to use it anywhere, due to the incredible high cost and most likely "efficiency" inflated in the American media. So spell you out like LO-HO-B! We smile and wave, wave and smile ...!

      All the same, the fighter does not have access to that degree of integration with the latest weapons and systems of the widest range and promising ones. If they start "losing" training battles to the macaroni or the Belgians, it will be a shame for the Germans. And if the Poles buy it, it will be complete.
