Der US Militär Schrotthaufen Betrug mit der F-35

Die Amerikaner sind inzwischen zudumm, Raketen zubauen, (man bezieht aus Russland die Triebwerke,) oder eine Kaffee Maschine und die Flugzeuge sind der selbe Schrott, wie die EADAS Hubschrauber und der Eurofighter.

Der F-35 ist das größte Rüstungsprogramm der Geschichte. Dieses Multi-Zweck Flugzeug wird von Lockheed Martin und den wichtigsten Partnern Northrop Grumman und BAE- Systems gebaut.

Er sollte die Armeen von Australien, Kanada, Dänemark, der Vereinigten Staaten, Israel, Italien, Japan, Norwegen, der Niederlande, des Vereinigten Königreichs sowie der Türkei für die nächsten 40 Jahre ausstatten, und die F-16, F-18 und F-22 ersetzen.

Seine Herstellung wurde jedoch gestartet, obwohl das Wesentliche, seine Luftfahrt-Software, noch immer nicht erfunden worden ist. Die Verteidigungsindustrien der Käuferstaaten sind zugunsten der USA geschlossen worden, ohne zu wissen ob dieses Material geliefert werden wird oder nicht.

Seit dem Start des Projekts variieren seine Kosten ständig und führen zur Annullierung verschiedener Aufträge. Anfang dieses Monats veröffentlichte das Government Accountability Office (GAO) eine beruhigende Studie, aber auf einer Basis von zwei Jahre alten Zahlen. Zur gleichen Zeit versicherte das Department of Defense, dass der F-35 weniger teuer zu kaufen, aber sein Unterhalt teurer wäre.

Laut einer unabhängigen kanadischen Studie von Professor Michael Byers für das Kanadische Center für politische Alternativen und das Rideau-Institut wäre die Wahrheit viel düsterer: in Wahrheit kann niemand die genauen Kosten eines Flugzeuges kennen, das noch nicht genau konzipiert ist. Allerdings könnten die 65 von Kanada bestellten Flugzeuge ihm die astronomische Summe von 1,5 Milliarden US-Dollar per Flugzeug über 40 Jahre kosten (im Jahr 2007 versicherten die Vereinigten Staaten, dass das Flugzeug nicht teurer käme als der F-18 und schätzte die Kosten auf US $ 377 Millionen pro Stück).

Wegen einer totalen Fehl Konstruktion, unglaublichen Software und technischen Fehlern, wurde das projekt seit langem vom Pentagon abgelehnt.

Die Amerikaner haben Nichts aus dem Korea Krieg gelernt. Damals wurden die neuen Jagd Flugzeuge und Bomber mit den Russen Migs wie Tauben abgeschossen, denn bei dem kleinesten Fehler und Schussloch, stürzte der damalige Müll schon ab. Das F-35 Programm war auch so ein Schrott, ebenso diverse EADS Programme um den Eurofighert, Hubschrauber, Drohnen, Fregatten, usw.. einem Müll der Deutschen Rüstungs Industrie, die nur bestechen kennt.

Die Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II ist ein aus dem „Joint Strike Fighter“-Programm (abgekürzt JSF, deutsch etwa gemeinsames Kampfflugzeug) hervorgegangenes US-Kampfflugzeug. Die F-35 wurde auf Grundlage des Versuchsflugzeugs X-35 entwickelt und gilt als das erste in Serie produzierte TarnkappenMehrzweckkampfflugzeug. Die F-35 wird in drei Hauptmodellen produziert: die konventionelle F-35A, die STOVL-Variante F-35B und die trägergestützte Version F-35C.

Mit einer geplanten Gesamtstückzahl von über 3.000 Maschinen stellt die F-35 das gegenwärtig teuerste und umfangreichste Rüstungsprogramm der Welt dar. Die F-35 soll in den kommenden Jahrzehnten das primäre Kampfflugzeug der US-Streitkräfte und mehrerer NATO-Partner sowie enger Verbündeter darstellen.

Pentagon considers cancelling F-35 program, leaked documents suggest

Leaked documents from a Pentagon budget review suggest that the agency is tired of its costly F-35 fighter jets, and has thoughts about cancelling the $391.2 billion program that has already expanded into 10 foreign countries.

Pentagon officials held a briefing on Wednesday in which they mapped out ways to manage the $500 billion in automated budget cuts required over the next decade. A slideshow laid out a number of suggestions and exposed the Pentagon’s frustration with its F-35 jets, which are designed and manufactured by Lockheed Martin Corp. based out of Bethesda, Md.  The agency also suggested scrapping plans for a new stealthy, long-range bomber, attendees of the briefing told Reuters.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel spoke to reporters on Wednesday and indicated that the Pentagon might have to decide between a “much smaller force” and a decade-long “holiday” from modernizing weapons systems and technology.

Pentagon briefing slides indicated that a decision to maintain a larger military “could result in the cancellation of the $392 billion Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 program and a new stealthy, long-range bomber,” Reuters reports.

When officials familiar with the budget review leaked the news about the F-35s, the agency tried to downplay its alleged intentions.

The F-35 program is the Pentagon’s most expensive weapon system. A fleet of 2,443 aircraft has an estimated price tag of $391.2 billion, which is up 68 percent from the projected costs measured in 2001. Earlier this year, Air Force Lieutenant General Christopher Bogdan, the F-35 program manager, condemned the manufacturer for “trying to squeeze every nickel” out of the Department of Defense.

Although the warplane is the most expensive combat aircraft in history, its quality is lacking. In February, the US military grounded an entire fleet of F-35 Joint Strike Fighters because of a crack found on a turbine blade on one of the jets, marking the fourth time that a fleet was grounded because of manufacturing problems. In April, Bogdan told a Senate committee that he doubted the planes could withstand a sophisticated cyberattack.

But before the sequestration took effect this year, the Pentagon secured several contracts with Lockheed Martin to ensure the continued production and maintenance of the costly F-35s. This week, the Defense Department struck another deal with the company to produce 71 more jet fighters, claiming the costs per aircraft have been reduced by about 4 percent – an insignificant reduction when compared to the 68 percent price increase that has occurred since 2001.

After news broke of the Pentagon’s prospect to cancel the program, officials tried to control the damage of such an alarming statement that runs counter to the claims they publicly make.

“We have gone to great lengths to stress that this review identified, through a rigorous process of strategic modeling, possible decisions we might face, under scenarios we may or may not face in the future,” Pentagon Spokesman George Little told Reuters in an email when asked about the slides. “Any suggestion that we’re now moving away from key modernization programs as a result of yesterday’s discussion of the outcomes of the review would be incorrect.”

An unnamed defense official familiar with the briefing told Reuters that the leaked budget document indicated possibilities for a worst-case scenario. He admitted that the Pentagon considered scrapping the program, but said it was unlikely, since “cancelling the program would be detrimental to our national defense.”

Regardless of the Pentagon’s intent, Congress is responsible for authorizing Department of Defense spending, and has often forced the agency to make costly and unnecessary weapons purchases.

Last year, US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said that the US has no need for new tanks. But even though senior Army officials have repeatedly stated that there is no need to spend half a billion dollars in taxpayer funds on new 70-ton Abrams tanks, lawmakers from both parties have pushed the Pentagon to accept the useless purchases.

Earlier this year, an investigation revealed that lobbying efforts by Northrop Grumman have kept a costly Global Hawk drone flying, despite the Pentagon’s attempt to end the project. A defense authorization bill passed by Congress requires the Air Force to keep flying its Block 30 Global Hawks through at least 2014, which costs taxpayers $260 million per year.

The US spends more money on defense than any other nation, but lawmakers from both parties often insist that the agency continue to buy tanks and keep ships and planes it no longer needs. Although the Pentagon has expressed its frustration with the costly F-35 fighter jets, there is little the agency can do without congressional support. http://rt.com/usa/pentagon-f35-stealth-bomber-963/

    The F-35 is unlikely to suffer cutbacks even if sequestration continues, the programme’s manager says
    The project is ‚too important to fail‘ in the eyes of top officials

    The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter is unlikely to suffer cutbacks even if sequestration continues in 2016, according to the programme’s executive officer.

    „I have faith in the Department of Defense (DoD) leadership when they tell me … that if sequestration comes we’re going to do everything we can to minimise the impact on the programme,“ said Lieutenant General Christopher Bogdan.

    Despite two years of sequestration, the F-35 programme was „literally unscathed“ by the across-the-board budget caps, the general told the Air Force Association’s Air & Space Conference on 15 September. „We didn’t lose a single airplane, we didn’t lose a single dollar in the development programme, we didn’t lose a single dollar in the sustainment,“ he added.

    Senior officials have continued to insist that the F-35 is a top acquisition priority for the Pentagon.

    „Looking forward, we know on the horizon in 2016 there may be future problems with DoD budget constraints,“ said Gen Bogdan. „What I will tell you is that department senior leadership have told me the same thing they told me two years ago: that this programme needs to continue. It’s not too big to fail, it’s too important to fail.“

    He added that unit costs would fall sharply due to economies of scale if the United States and its allies remained committed to buy.

    „In the next three years we double production, and in the next five years we triple production,“ Gen Bogdan said. „So there is a significant ramp coming.“

    Furthermore, he said that a defect in the Pratt & Whitney F135 engine that powers all three variants of the aircraft was likely to be fixed by year’s end. The defect caused an engine fire in one aircraft that led to a fleet-wide grounding in June. Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies, has promised to cover the cost of the repair.

    Ein schönes Beispiel dafür, dass sich der Führungsstab aufführt wie
    in Alice im Wunderland, gibt auch folgende gestern von Fefe verlinkte
    Meldung:

    »Another Air Force official familiar with the F-35 confirmed that the
    jet won’t have the software to fire its gun until the Block 3F
    software is released to frontline squadrons sometime in 2019. […]

    The gun can shoot 3,300 rounds per minute, though the Air Force’s
    F-35A version can carry just 180 rounds for the gun. […]

    The lack of a gun is not likely to be a major problem for close-in
    air-to-air dogfights against other jets. Part of the problem is that
    the F-35—which is less maneuverable than contemporary enemy fighters
    like the Russian Sukhoi Su-30 Flanker—is not likely to survive such a
    close-in skirmish.«

    The reported theft by Chinese hackers of blueprints for the US’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter amounted to 50 terabytes of classified information, documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden have revealed.

    The hackers are believed by many US officials to be affiliated with the Chinese government. The humiliating 2007 incident saved China “25 years of research and development,” according to a US military official cited by The Washington Post in a 2013 article covering the breach.

    Previous media reports said “several terabytes” of data was stolen, but according to the new documents published by the German magazine Der Spiegel last week, the actual amount was far higher, at 50 terabytes –the equivalent of five Libraries of Congress.

    The data – reportedly used by China to build their own advanced fighter jets – includes detailed engine schematics and radar design.

    Beijing dismissed the allegations of data theft in the wake of Snowden’s revelation.

    „The so-called evidence that has been used to launch groundless accusations against China is completely unjustified,“ Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters, adding that „according to the materials presented by the relevant person, some countries themselves have disgraceful records on cyber security.“

    Pentagon expects USD1 million unit price increase if Canada leaves F-35 programme

    The F-35’s cost could increase by USD1 million per aircraft if Canada cancels its order
    Canada’s prime minister designate has said he would not buy the F-35 if elected

    Canada’s threatened departure from the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II combat aircraft programme could raise the price of the stealthy jets for the remaining customers, according to US Air Force Lieutenant General Chris Bogdan, the Pentagon’s F-35 programme manager.

    Lt Gen Bogdan told lawmakers on 21 October that „if any partner, or any service, moves airplanes to the right, takes airplanes out, the price of the airplane for all the other partners and all the other services goes up“.

    He said, in the case of Canada’s potential termination, his office has estimated the increase in price at 0.7% to 1% or „about a million dollars a copy“.

    International partners would also be obligated to absorb Canada’s 2.1% share in the cost of sustainment and follow-on modernisation, the general added. However, there would be no impact to the F-35 development effort, which ends in 2017.

    Canadian prime minister-designate Justin Trudeau promised to end participation in the F-35 programme while campaigning this year. He has said that he would instead replace Canada’s ageing fleet of Boeing CF-18s with a less costly alternative, arguing that the F-35 is not needed to defend Canada. Ottawa has not yet announced a policy decision.

    The Pentagon’s JLENS program caused massive embarrassment when one of the $1 billion surveillance balloons broke loose in Maryland in October 2015. A new report has revealed more bad news: the expensive radar blimps aren’t effective.

    The $2.7 billion Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) is meant to track and monitor incoming cruise missiles or low-flying aircraft along America’s east coast. Consisting of two large blimps, JLENS relies on sophisticated onboard radar equipment.

    A software glitch that interferes with the F-35 radar’s ability to remain working in flight poses the greatest threat to meeting the USAF’s IOC schedule
    Training on a new increment of ALIS and a fuel pressure modification are the other two unresolved issues

    A software glitch that interferes with the ability of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter’s AN/APG-81 AESA radar working in flight poses the greatest threat to delaying US Air Force (USAF) plans to declare its jets operationally deployable, a top service official told IHS Jane’s on 4 March.

    Major General Jeffrey Harrigian, director of the air force’s F-35 integration office at the Pentagon, described the problem as „radar stability – the radar’s ability to stay up and running“ using the 3i software that the air force intends to use when it declares initial operational capability (IOC) for its fleet sometime between 1 August and 31 December.

    „What would happen is they’d get a signal that says either a radar degrade or a radar fail -something that would force us to restart the radar,“ Maj Gen Harrigian said in further describing the issue.

    The issue arose in late 2015, according to the general. „We first started to see it in testing,“ he said.

    „Lockheed Martin discovered the root cause, and now they’re in the process of making sure they take that solution and run it through the [software testing] lab.“ He added that new software that corrects the error is to be delivered to the USAF at the end of March.

    To correct the software quickly, some code writers were diverted from their work on increment 3F, Maj Gen Harrigian said. However, any solution to the problem in increment 3i will be transferable to 3F coding, so both increments will benefit from the work.
