F-16 нового виробництва на новому виробничому майданчику
Це буде перший серійний #F16 виготовлений у Грінвіллі в штаті Південна Кароліна.

Майданчик запрацював у 2019 році через три роки після закриття виробництва у Техасі.

Спочатку він запрацював на обслуговування винищувачів, а з потребою у нових літаках - і на виробництво.
Нове виробництво окрім вже звичних постачальників задіяло у кооперації і нові підприємства компанії Lockheed Martin, як наприклад завод PZL Mielec у Польщі.

Наші сусіди виготовлятимуть частину фюзеляжу та кабіни винищувача #F16: mil.in.ua/uk/news/polshh…

Gen. dyw. pil. Cezary Wiśniewski, Zastępca Dowódcy @DGeneralneRSZ: wielodomenowość oznacza dołączenie do trzech domen, używanych od zawsze - czyli air, sea, land - domen space i cyber. Ale w #USA koncepcji wojsk lądowych jest jeszcze kilka ciekawych elementów | #Defence24Day
Gen. dyw. pil. Cezary Wiśniewski @DGeneralneRSZ: wojska lądowe #USA bardzo poważnie myślą o operowaniu w systemie A2/AD, dlatego jednym z pierwszych założeń #multidomainoperation jest zdolność do penetracji systemów antydostępowych | #Defence24Day #D24Day

🧵 Dr. Can Kasapoğlu #F16 alımı

1) Türkiye'nin F-16 modernizasyonu isteği birkaç açıdan önemli. Öncelikle, Türkiye'nin jeopolitik rakipleri 5. nesil kabiliyete geçiş yaparken Türk Hava Kuvvetleri'nin 4. nesil bir kabiliyet ile on yıl geçirmesi zorlayıcı olacaktır.
2) Teknik olarak F-16V modernizasyonu, özellikle gelişmiş sensör konfigürasyonu ile, Türkiye için iyi bir ara çözüm. Ayrıca, #TSK F-16'nın önde gelen kullanıcılarından biri. Savunma ekonomisi, altyapı ve pilot havuzu açısından da ciddi avantajlar var.
3) #Su35 gibi çözümler eğitim, simülatör, altyapı, pilot havuzu hatta doktrin çerçevesinde radikal değişiklik gerektirir. Ayrıca, yaptırım tetiklemesi neredeyse kesin. MMU ise, iyi ihtimalle, 2030 bandında anlamlı sayılar ile envanteri doldurmaya başlayabilir.

2. ogni volta che leggete una stima scientifica del numero di armi nucleari nel mondo, dietro c'è il lavoro di uno specialista di altissimo livello come #HansKristensen: una vita a cercare in oscurissime pubblicazioni, foto satellitari, curricula dei militari a caccia di dati
3. che cosa ci ha raccontato #HansKristensen? Che l'Italia si conferma come il paese europeo che ha il più alto numero di armi nucleari USA sul proprio suolo e l'unico con 2 basi nucleari: #Aviano e #Ghedi: ilfattoquotidiano.it/in-edicola/art…

1. oggi c'è una notizia di cui vi voglio parlare assolutamente: il rischio che arrivino in #Italia ancora più soldati americani e caccia #F16. Il bassissimo profilo con cui viene trattata la notizia mi manda letteralmente in bestia
2. da oltre 10 anni l'#Italia è la piattaforma di lancio di tutte le guerre USA: dall'Afghanistan all'Iraq, noi italiani abbiamo le mani lorde di sangue. Milioni di morti, rifugiati, intere popolazioni distrutte
3. leggendo i cablo della diplomazia USA, rivelati da #WikiLeaks,sono rimasta choccata dalle dimensioni del nostro coinvolgimento in quella macchina della Morte che sono le guerre del #Pentagono.

1- 30 Haz. 2019 tarihinde, gece geç saatlerde #Suriye Arap Silahlı Kuvvetlerine ait bir füze, Kuzey #Kıbrıs'ta bulunan Taşkent Köyü yakınlarına düşmüştür. Enkazdan gelen ilk veriler ve basına yansıyan açıklamalar, bahse konu füzenin bir #S200 tarafından ateşlendiğini gösteriyor.
2- Açık kaynaklı istihbarat verileri, olayın yaşandığı saatlerde, #İsrail Hava Kuvvetleri tarafından #Suriye'de bulunan #İran Devrim Muhafızları unsurları ve İran'a müzahir gayrinizami silahlı grupları hedef alan bir hava taarruzu icra edildiğini ortaya koymaktadır. #Türkiye
3- Düşen #S200 füzesinin, #Suriye Arap Hava Savunma Kuvvetleri tarafından #İsrail hava saldırısına mukabele etmek için ateşlendiği anlaşılmaktadır. İncelemeye konu SAM sisteminin interceptor füzesi, hedefini vuramadan enerjisini tükettiği halde kontrolsüz biçimde düşebilmektedir.

1- #Türk ve #Rus devlet başkanları arasındaki son görüşmeden basına yansıyan detaylar, #S400 teslimatlarına ilişkin bir değişiklik olmayacağı yönündedir. Ayrıca, Rus basını, farklı silah sistemlerinin de gündemde olduğunu belirtmektedir.
2- Şu aşamada kesin bir değerlendirmede bulunmak spekülatif olsa da, tahminlerimiz #Pantsir alçak-orta irtifa hava savunma sistemlerine ilişkin bir alımın #S400'ler için gerekli SAM konfigürasyonunu oluşturmak adına bir sonraki adım olabileceği yönündedir.
3- Nitekim, bilinen modern hava savunma planlama esasları ve #Rusya Federasyonu'nun #S400 konuşlandırma paternleri de Pantsir seçeneğini güçlü kılmaktadır. Açıkçası, bilgi eksikliği ve War Studies (harp çalışmaları) disiplininin henüz istenen seviyede gelişmemiş olmasından ötürü,

US officials gathered at Pakistan's Sarghoda Air Force base to carry out their audit of the F-16s. This confirmed to them that no F-16 had been shot down by India.
Our follow up to @laraseligman's story on the #F16 claims with @khuldune

asiatimes.com/2019/04/articl…
Lockheed Martin officials who pointed out that had an F-16 been shot down, they would have launched an investigation and examined the MiG-21 black box to understand how the aircraft was shot down. But there was no such "kill"
asiatimes.com/2019/04/articl…
The fact that Pakistan could put on display all the three missiles, and at least major parts of the fourth, show that no missile was fired by the MiG-21 before it was shot down.

1- #Hindistan'ın temel hatası, son tırmanmayı 70'lerdeki ve 90'lardaki çatışmaları yönetir gibi yönetmeye kalkmasıdır, sonuçta da iç kamuoyuna propoganda ile sınırlı kaldı ve enformasyon harbi alanında başarısızlığa uğradı.
2- Zira, #Hint siyasi-askeri karar vericileri, görünem o ki, 21. Yüzyıldaki iletişim kanallarını ve dünyanın bilgi alma biçiminin etkinliğini anlayamadılar.Bunun temelinde de, dijital teknolojiler ve açık kaynaklı istihbarat imkanlarındaki artış bulunmakta.
3- #Hindistan, örneğin, #F16 düşürdükleri iddiasıyla ilgili hiçbir kanıt gösteremedi. #Pakistan kontrolündeki alanda icra ettiği hava taarruzunun sonuçlarını yine uydu görüntüleri ve da #İHA görüntüleri aracılığıyla uluslararası kamuoyuna anında duyuramadı.
