U.S. military to rely on stealth fighter that can also beat Russia (Photos)

LONDON October 27 news: According to the U.S. network 25, the Philadelphia Bulletin published an article, taking into account the economic strength of Russia has recovered to the United States is challenging the military fields, as well as the two countries on the issue of differences in the Taiwan Strait has been does not eliminate, the future does not rule out escalation of the conflict between China and Russia while the United States when the attack possible. Article, if the war can take advantage of F-22, B-2 and F-35 stealth fighters combined to form three kinds of quantity and quality of air superiority, the U.S. military in both war were able to beat China and Russia.
F-22, B-2 and F-35 fighting together to create the invincible force
be pointed out that the article begins, F-22 “Raptor” fighter good air to air combat and ground combat, and its stealth characteristics make it difficult to detect by enemy radar. The various functions of the fighters in a battle to become a key factor in the ultimate victory, to win air superiority the U.S. military can play an unusual role. However, the president, Congress and Defense Secretary Robert Gates has decided to only produce 187 F-22 fighters. Obviously, in this country than any active fighter aircraft have advanced production lines in the end, politics played a key role.
U.S. is required to have enough manpower to win two wars and equipment is the consistent policy of the United States, and its President Obama is bound to the identity. The article said that the United States, “Air Force” magazine in September 2009 had reference to the U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Norton Schwartz (Norton A. Schwartz) will be saying: “We want to buy additional F-22 fighter? Of course! However, I believe, 187 F-22 fighter planes large enough to fight a war of. “careful analysis of Schwartz’s article as saying, Schwartz will be obvious subtext is: in both the U.S. can not winning two major wars on the battlefield, the United States needs more “Raptor” fighter. Simultaneously fight two wars, the need for more powerful air force, the United States currently does not have this capability.
article that, while winning two wars are not simply a matter of policy, but also a high possibility of this happening: First of all, Russia is to achieve recovery, and military challenge; followed , taking into account the two countries has long been divided on the issue of Taiwan, so China is also likely to challenge the United States and even set off the conflict between the two countries. If Russia and China while the U.S. attacks, the U.S. must also face two wars. However, the article says, speaking in terms of quality, or the number of terms from the U.S. Air Force has enough power to simultaneously fight two wars.
article said, F-22 “Raptor” and the B-2 “ghost” is a very good stealth fighter, F-35 Joint Strike Fighter also has its own great place, good ground attack . By the F-22, B-2 and F-35 stealth fighters constitute the three “stealth triple (Stealth Triad)” will enhance U.S. air power.
article points out, although the F-22 “Raptor” fighter capable of independent action, but in joint operations with other aircraft, when this aircraft operations more efficient. F-22 fighters and B-2 bomber can, airborne airborne warning and control systems and allied F-35 fighter aircraft receive the message. F-22 fighter’s main task is to win air superiority, for example, to seize and maintain air superiority over the battlefield, so the aircraft can act as a defensive shield for other fighters, the aircraft encountered when the threat has been party issued a warning to them, by shooting down enemy planes to protection from enemy fire had hit the aircraft side, to guide one’s own goals and inform them of the aircraft near the target location.
article said, in general, F-22 fighter role is to make the implementation of other models, including providing air cover for ground forces, including the right to the task. In fact, F-22 fighter is the only all-weather in the enemy’s heavily guarded airspace in the mission of the aircraft. F-22 fighter is superior to early warning aircraft, or even superior to any aircraft to perform air-to-task.
in “stealth triple play” in, B-2 bombers with long-range strategic capabilities. The aircraft was from the United States, Missouri resident flew to Whiteman Air Force Base in Afghanistan, after the completion of the bombing mission, the two pilots to fly back to station on the same day before dinner. In fact, B-2 bomber missions were in days of. When the U.S. bombing of the Serbian capital, Belgrade, B-2 bombers from Whiteman Air Force Base had arrived in Belgrade, the pilots also flew back to the station the day before dinner.
“stealth triple play” in the third paragraph is the multi-mission stealth fighter F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. According to the U.S. Department of Defense said, this stealth fighter-ground attack in the field better than the F-22. F-35 fighter mission and F-22 is different from the latter to add models, there is no competition between the two. F-35′s mission is to attack quickly, the enemy launched a decisive blow.
joint operational stealth aircraft expensive
reported that, despite the F-22 fighters to the premise without compromising mobility reduced speed, but when the pilot needs flying time, aircraft and other advantages will be wasted. While the plane could see the ground targets from high altitude, but there is no difference between the aircraft to ground targets in the end is friend or foe. Therefore, low-flying aircraft have the necessary. However, Afghanistan – Pakistan war of the enemy is very adept at camouflage, so the low-flying effects are not good.
In this case, the U.S. Air Force A-10 “Thunderbolt II” strike aircraft he sent on the handy. This is a single-seat fighter designed to provide close air support for ground forces, can fly hovering over the battlefield. A-10 attack aircraft as a variant of machine, OA-10 attack aircraft can replace the F-22 fighter, play air reconnaissance aircraft and attack ground targets to guide the other’s role. Corresponding to this is that if the F-16 pilot is caused by A – Pakistan war a large number of potential causes of civilian casualties, then the U.S. Air Force as soon as possible to deploy OA-10, F-16 fighters in order to navigate.
addition to B-2 “ghost” (Spirit) stealth bombers and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), the other with FA-22 “Raptor” fighter aircraft portfolio include: the Navy’s F/A-18 “Hornet” fighter jet multi-function, age-old B-52 bombers, the so-called legacy of the Air Force fighter F-15 “Eagle” and F-16 “Fighting Falcon” fighter. “Stealth triple” in the FA-22 “Raptor” air superiority fighter is to master the determinants of the battlefield is a necessary condition for the entire operation.
article points out, whether to maintain or produce stealth aircraft are required to pay a very high price. “Ghost” aircraft per flight hour, you need 119 hours of maintenance; “Raptor” fighter for every flight hour, need 30-hour maintenance. U.S. Air Force has 20 B-2 bombers, each aircraft cost $ 929 million, about $ 1 billion, including spare parts and software support. The FA-22 “Raptor” fighter of the marginal cost is $ 140 million. If the Air Force wants to maintain the quality of two kinds of fighters, then it must intend to pay this huge sum of money. The article said that in order to protect U.S. national interests and superpower status, this investment is value for money. If you do not improve the military has invested heavily, then America’s future will pay a higher price.
conclusion, the article said, now is an important step in the U.S. a good time, but not take the form of sending more troops, deployed in Iraq is not war-weariness of the military day. According to the article, the U.S. Air Force’s “stealth triple play” will be invincible, invincible. If a sufficient number of F-35 fighters, “stealth triple play” all in place, then the United States can be sufficient to maintain its dominance of air power. (Compiled: Spring)
