F-22 Raptor stealth fighter, the F-16 fighter planes to use the cannon and missile assist in the fight, then take off the B-1 Lancer bomber to launch precision-guided munitions. April 4 pancake action “(Operation Chimichanga) staged military exercises is considered to be the U.S. Air Force to its new long-range strike force” first test “. “Connection” magazine 11 issue of the Journal article was outspoken manner broke the news: U.S. Air Force has been in the secret to prepare full-scale war against China, this exercise is to test the appropriate tactics.
forward deployment to shorten the range of attack
U.S. Air Force of this exercise called “pancake action” closely guarded secret, official news reports, almost no mention of how much detail. Stationed in Alaska Raptor fleet commander, Lt. Col. Joseph Kerr said, “This exercise is designed to test B-1 bombers and F-22 stealth fighter, long-range strike ability, while the F-16 fighters to cover them into the anti- involved in the target area. ” However, according to the “Connection” article to say, the tactics of the U.S. Air Force would use the exercise test with Chinese operations over the Western Pacific. The U.S. Air Force secret to prepare “a full-scale war against China has been more than ten years old.
The article said that 10 million front-line troops deployed in the Pacific, 100 ships and thousands of combat aircraft, such large-scale military deployment much like previously for Iraq and Afghanistan, “resource-intensive war. Today, Iraq, A war has ended or is about to end Washington’s attention has shifted to the Western Pacific. In addition, the U.S. Pacific Command, is more nuclear submarines, aircraft carrier, Littoral Combat Ship, stealth fighters and unmanned aerial vehicles and equipment share. At the same time, the U.S. Air Force also began to turn their attention to the Western Pacific. Allegedly, in the past 10 years, deployed in the United States, Texas and South Dakota, 60 B-1 bomber has been over in Iraq and Afghanistan to perform close air support missions. Last year, two B-1 bomber carried out the epic task “- within 24 hours from Texas to take off the bombing of the nearly 100 ground targets in Libya. The article said recently at the “pancake action” exercise means that the U.S. Air Force is considering the previous operational model is transferred to the Pacific. In fact, the U.S. Air Force bombers stationed in Guam in turn, is easy to fly to China in a very short period of time. ”
new combination to break the “Red Flag” missile?
the B-2 stealth bomber has been regarded as “Chuaimen” weapon of the U.S. Air Force. During the air raids Libya, three B-2 stealth bomber in a mission to quell the Gaddafi military radar, missile systems, and airports. However, taking into account only a small portion of active duty 20 B-2 stealth bomber ready to set off to fight the idea of China, the U.S. Air Force only want another rut.
“connection,” the article said that China is steadily upgrading its air defense capability, smooth penetration to ensure that the bombers, the U.S. Air Force will send the upgraded F-22 stealth fighter follow-on force open. Currently, the U.S. Air Force has begun to deploy by “incremental 3.1 project to upgrade the F-22 stealth fighter. The upgraded F-22 can launch precision strikes the ground outside the goal of 60 miles (one mile equals 1.61 kilometers), this ability has been tested in the pancake action. “F-22 Raptor fleet commander Kerr will have the ability to attack regarded as” the help of the follow-on force to complete mission-critical “. “Connection” article even claimed that “Once the upgrade is completed, 150 of the U.S. Air Force F-22 stealth fighters could destroy thousands of Chinese radar, missiles and fighter jets.the Chuaimen “After the success of
F-22 stealth fighter, the turn of the B-1 bomber debut. However, such as Days Inn Air Force Base, Texas 7 bombers Force Commander David Ben said: “We (B-1) radar reflectivity signal, but this is not to say that we can stealth F-16 fighter. “Faced with the advanced air defense weapons, opened fire at a safe distance in B-1. “Connection” article, improved B-1 bomber can be mounted to 24 with dual-mode GPS and laser-guided Joint standoff air-to-ground missiles, these missiles with a range of 200 miles to 600 miles , such as “Red Flag” -15 missile air defense weapons outside the range of fire. Thus, the U.S. Air Force to upgrade the F-22 stealth fighter and B-1 bomber, giving or to enhance its precision strike capability, that is, to create a new “air combination.
stealth fighter is the key to air
U.S. military action for the Western Pacific region is increasingly evident, the Air Force mobilization, deployment, in particular, should attract attention. B-1 bomber, was born during the Cold War veterans, but the U.S. Air Force with F-22 stealth fighter bundled play caused by the new “air raid combination, clearly well thought out.in accordance with the new ideas of the U.S. Air Force, the F-22 with stealth capabilities, B-1 but also opened fire on the enemy standoff, this combination sufficient to eliminate the threat of the opponents of advanced anti-aircraft missiles. In other words, this new combination to counter the F-22 and B-1 can not completely rely on ground-fire and fight for air supremacy, advanced stealth fighter, is the most effective countermeasures. Stealth fighter first flight, a flight test work is progressing smoothly, once the technology is mature and large-scale service, you can create a wide range of air patrols areas to prevent the ulterior motive opponent penetration and attack.
