” This is the best of times, worst of times. “This sentence on the” isolated situation, “the Air Force who is very appropriate. June 29, the U.S. military critic 戴夫马加达 in “examiner.com” wrote on the website, the U.S. Air Force at the most advanced F-22 stealth fighter available to the imaginary enemy troops, let them play North Korea, Russia and even China Air Force to temper the skills of combat troops to ensure control of the air is always in their own hands.
183 架 F-22 has the absolute advantage
any of the new Air Force fighters, must first pass at Nellis Air Force combat Test and Evaluation Center (AFOTEC) rigorous testing, even the premier F-22 “Raptor” fighter is no exception. U.S. Air Force is responsible for this task elite – nicknamed “Green Bats” in the first Test and Evaluation Squadron 422.
No. 422 squadron commander, Assistant Mitchell “fangs” * Ken Xike Lieutenant Colonel, said: “Our mission is to test all the fighters ability to adapt to the environment … to ensure that after its formal entry into combat units no conditions. “In fact, more like a group of 422 Squadron,” Air rogue “who brutally operating sophisticated aircraft, the purpose is to identify and resolve hidden problems.
Ken Xike lieutenant colonel explained, not only to combat new planes to highlight, more importantly, to meet the standards of validity and applicability. Effectiveness is a measure of the performance is in line with the new Air Force models “directory business needs” requirements, the applicability of a new aircraft is a measure of the reliability of the battlefield, “If the new aircraft to meet the requirements, we can issue to AFOTEC ‘ recommended the deployment ‘of the appraisal report. ” Today, F-22 maker Lockheed Martin and AFOTEC is closely to make the machine as soon as possible to achieve full operational capability (FOC) to work.
categorically as U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates stressed that 183 F-22 fighter “sufficient to meet the needs” and therefore must ensure that every aircraft the U.S. Air Force F-22 can play the power pit one against ten, the first 422 Squadron The work can not have the slightest careless. Ken Xike Lieutenant Colonel said: “We are not only a race against time, and competitors also race, we must ensure the absolute advantage in terms of quality.”
happily informed of “annihilating the number”
F-22 production is limited because the Air Force must continue to F-15, F-16 fighter planes such as the air of old main face of Russian-made Su-30, MiG-35 is equivalent to level fighters spread in many countries the reality, the Air Force is also easy to solve the opponent in doubt. The majority of pilots fighting to improve the quality, AFOTEC frequently arrange the first 422 Squadron F-22 forces with the brothers played against these “Raptor” often “stoop” to imitate North Korea, Russia and even China Air Force tactics, to those who drive F-15 , F-16 pilots do a find any.
It was the first played against the No. 64 Squadron 422, “invaders” squadron commander Ali Burton introduced, F-22 stealth design and the combination of advanced aerodynamic design, the stealth and mobility a good balance between. “I’m driving the first 422 F-15 and F-22 squadron patrol together, when, after finding the target, F-22 to respond quickly and vanishes without a trace, at a time when thou art F-15 still to do exchange of fire before turning action. A few minutes later, F-22 to end the fighting, happily informed them of ‘annihilating the number of’ that moment, I fully appreciate the F-15 should exit the stage of history, but the F-22 the number of poor procurement tied our hands, we have to continue to tap the potential of the old aircraft. “
take into account the medium toward the Russian Air Force in a period of time is difficult to have reliable BVR air combat capability (BVR ), No. 422 Squadron F-22 is the initiative to abandon the long-range strike benefits, lower the figure to a lot of close combat with friendly forces training to hone their fighting qualities. According to the British “Air Power” magazine revealed that the F-22′s tune, the U.S. F-15, F-16 fighters to intercept the low level of much improved, and this mode of combat is considered the most likely potential enemy in the United States and air combat occurred. In fact, F-22 fighter jets had not a simple air platform, it seems to be the mining potential of U.S. military pilots, “most sparring.”
