recently bought two from Ukraine Su-27 fighters, which will help in future combat pilots in the United States, deal more effectively with the Su-27 and its derivative models. View of the Sukhoi family aircraft in Russia and China occupy the dominant position of the Air Force, so the U.S. military’s move to introduce the Su-27, naturally attracted attention of Sino-Russian military.
embodiment of the “enemy” vigorously realistic combat
According to the U.S. “Global Strategy” website 11 reported that the U.S. Air Force 64th Combat Training Squadron is most likely Su-27 to spend their long stationed deep in the desert of Nevada Nellis base, the U.S. military the famous “imaginary specialized households”, the squadron has been using US-made F-15, F-16 fighter simulation Sukhoi Series combat skills. Although well received, but after some “nowhere near”, so the arrival is sure to make Su-27 combat training “more realistic.” Currently, the world equipped with Su-27 Su-30 and its improved model number has more than 1000, especially China and Russia to a new generation of Air Force basic Su-27 is based, and Russia stepped up the final launch of the Su-27 upgrade version – Su-35, aircraft performance is close to the U.S. F-22, and mainly for foreign markets, which made the U.S. alert.
how to train combat pilots in shaping the skills? U.S. Navy and Air Force have taken a way to establish an imaginary enemy, namely, the Navy’s “holy warriors” Flight Team and the Air Force, 64, 65, “invaders” squadron. The imaginary unit is emphasis on “spirit” of foreign fighters using Russian air force. In 1967, the U.S. Navy “TOP GUN” schools and “holy warriors” to start a secret unit code-named “ring volcano” training program, the use of A-4 “Skyhawk” aircraft to imitate the Vietnamese Air Force MiG-17 and MiG-21 , train a number of “MiG-killer.” Later, these people steal the show on the battlefield in Vietnam, and the lack of similar training in the Air Force has suffered a major loss. But the Air Force from Moldova in 1997 the purchase of 21 MiG-29, all of the research into the “intruder” in the squadron’s training program, its effective in the Kosovo war in 1999, easily shot down 10 meters Yugoslav Air Force Grid -29. U.S. Navy’s “holy warriors” brigade of about 25 F-5E/F fighters, they were coated with Russia, China and even the sign of the Korean Air Force. The more lavish the Air Force is shot simply as “invaders” squadron switched to more modern F-15, in order to more effectively play equipment Soviet Russia and other countries -27/30 series heavy fighter.
“Global Strategy,” the article said, the introduction of the U.S. Air Force Su-27 is not limited to the number two in the past the United States Air Force training is often the opposing sides of the aircraft deployed twelve low-intensity air combat . With a sufficient number of Su-27 after joining the U.S. Air Force units will be able to organize imaginary scale air battle exercises, thereby increasing the flying squadron carry out large-scale, multidisciplinary air tasks.
Ukrainian election is intended to study the Chinese Air Force
why the United States from the Ukraine, the introduction of the Su-27, rather than other similarly equipped Su-27 countries it ? And there are deeper reasons. Ukraine’s independence in 1992, it was isolated from the Soviet legacy of 38 Su-27S aircraft, these formerly Soviet territory defense forces (PVO) of the intercept fighter completely match the highest standards, performance is much better than 1994 sold to Russia China’s Su-27SK, the U.S. needs is this original Su-27, in order to more accurately grasp the characteristics of potential adversaries and electronic warfare signal characteristics, after all, the Russian Air Force during the past 20 years, almost on their own Su-27 fleet been improved.
more importantly, Ukraine, China Su-27 fleet in the maintenance plays a vital role in the United States wants to understand China through Ukraine Su-27′s core secrets. According to Russia’s “Independent Military Review” disclosed in the completion of a number of Russian exports to China over the past Su -27/30 fighter contract, up to 45 Ukrainian companies had been purchasing parts, and Ukrainian companies have begun to directly contract the Chinese Air Force Su-27 maintenance and upgrade business. Interestingly, the Chinese Su-27 main battle weapon – R-27 “Poplar” semi-active guided air to air missiles, is imported from Ukraine ARTEM Design Bureau, said that “more powerful than the Russian original goods.” In fact, financial difficulties and extreme dependence on the U.S. political Ukraine, has no intention of conservative Su-27′s technical secrets.
