F-35A fighters used unidentified weapons for the first time during the exercise


F-35 fighters of the Australian Air Force used unidentified weapons for the first time.

As part of the Arnhem Thunder 2021 military exercise, F-35 fighters of the Australian Air Force used unidentified weapons for the first time. According to the data available to the Avia.pro news agency, the combat aircraft carried the entire set of missile and bomb weapons, however, apparently, we are talking about several new types of ammunition and missiles at once.

Upgraded GBU-12 bombs and upgraded JASSM stealth cruise missiles were used in the exercise for the first time, reportedly never before, according to local media reports.

“We have worked out the task of using all the combat load that the F-35 is capable of carrying. The possibility of using weapons in external suspensions and from internal compartments allows pilots to choose the most optimal option for delivering missile and bomb strikes. "- said the commander of the stealth fighter squadron F-35A of the Australian Air Force.

The use of new weapons by Australian F-35 fighters was not touched upon by the Australian Air Force, however, apparently, this information may be classified.
