5-th generation without a future.


On the eve of the military leading manufacturers from the United States got a real kick in the back of the Government of Canada, refused for unknown reasons at the moment, from the purchase of 65 combat fighter-bombers F-35. The authorities and the US military authorities at the moment are perplexed by the fact that Canada has initiated the refusal to purchase US military aircraft which was believed to surpass all existing models, however, according to experts the portal Avia.pro, such a solution is quite reasoned.



According to some reports, the F-35 Lightning II fighter-bomber development program is more than 56 billion dollars, however, despite this, apparently, the combat aircraft could not impress the government of Canada, in particular, during dozens of conducted simulations of combat, in For the most part, the American aircraft proved to be defeated not only by modern Russian fighters, but also by air equipment still of the models of the Soviet Union, which naturally cast doubt on the effectiveness of this aircraft in the event I was a real battle. Given the fact that China and Russia are the main potential adversaries of NATO, it appears that in the event of possible military operations, the likelihood that modern military development will succeed is very small.



The modern technologies used in the development of the F-35 Lightning II fighter-bomber also do not always justify themselves, and even the main advantage of this aircraft, which lies in the stealth properties for air defense systems, is also not always workable - radars and radars of Soviet production detect the approach of an aircraft even long after he gets a chance to start hostilities, which, of course, minimizes the likelihood of success of any combat operation.



A significant role is also played by the financial support of the project of production of aircraft F-35 Lightning II. According to some reports, Canada is forced to invest in the project about half a billion dollars, and this is without taking into account the cost of the aircraft, which naturally is not justified in view of all the above facts, in particular in terms of flight-technical qualities of the combat aircraft.

Given the fact that Canada has initiated a refusal to purchase F-35 Lightning II combat aircraft, it is worth assuming that other countries may follow its example, in particular, experts do not exclude that it could be Denmark and the Netherlands, although official information about this not sounded.
