US deploys F-35s to Putin’s doorstep amid Russia tension

Meet The F-35 Lightning II Fighter

 

Is Trump going to get us into World War III?

Not likely, he’s following Reagan’s Peace through Strength Initiative.

The Air Force is set to deploy its high-tech, fifth-generation F-35A fighter jets to Europe this weekend as part of an effort to assure U.S. allies there who are worried about Russian aggression, the Pentagon announced Friday.

 

The deployment includes a “small number” of the Lockheed Martin-built Lightning II fighters, which are being rolled out by the services after a long and costly development, to train for several weeks with other U.S. and NATO aircraft in Europe.

The Pentagon noted that the deployment had been long planned, meaning it was not a reaction to recent increasing tensions between the United States and Russia over a chemical weapons attack on civilians in Syria and a subsequent cruise missile attack launched by two Navy ships.

What have you got in your wallet?

 

The arrival of the F-35, often called the most technologically advanced fighter in the world, is another example of the United States beefing up its presence and activity in Europe.

 

It also comes the same week that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, after meeting with Putin in Russia this week, declared that “the current state of U.S.-Russia relations is at a low point.”

Aside from the Russian situation, the deployment is also a chance for the United States to show off the capabilities of the F-35, which has been the most expensive procurement program in Pentagon history.

Allies such as Great Britain are buying the aircraft and could be regularly operating in Europe early in the next decade.

The Pentagon called the deployment an “important milestone.”

Also from the Washington Examiner

“This training deployment signifies an important milestone and natural progression of the F-35 program, allowing the Air Force to further demonstrate the operational capabilities of the fifth generation fighter aircraft.

It also assists in refining requirements for eventually basing the F-35A in Europe, which is scheduled to receive the aircraft in the early 2020s,” the statement said.

“Once the aircraft arrive in Europe, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and U.S. European Command will release additional information as it becomes available about the F-35A’s training deployment.”
