 Us air force tests multi platform joint EW capability in response to potential adversaries


Us F-35 fighter

The exercise, which was held from August 4 to 6 at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, tested the F-35s ability to suppress enemy air defense systems, support B-2 bombers and rq-170 unmanned reconnaissance aircraft and other stealth platforms.

Other platforms involved in the exercise include F-22, F-15 and Navy E / a-18g EW aircraft.

According to the report, in the past few years, US opponents have developed advanced radar to detect incoming aircraft and are equipped with anti-aircraft missiles with long range. In many cases, the range of these missiles even exceeds the range of US weapons.

In this exercise, the air force integrated tactics, technology and procedures together for unprecedented testing.

Through such exercises, Ellis said, we continue to improve our 4th and 5th generation joint tactics and enhance our capabilities in high-tech threat environments.
