Combat Tested

The F-35A still isn’t in full production, but it’s proving its effectiveness daily.

Citat:F-35s have also proved to be effective bombers againsttheIslamic State group.During the 4th Fighter Squadron’s deployment, from April to November 2019, the unit flew 1,300 combat sorties, totaling about 7,300 combat hours, and deployed about 150 weapons with no malfunctions.

“Really remarkable,” Abba said. “We didn’t have any bad bombs that were attributable to either aircrew error or to weapon system malfunction.”

Within two weeks of arriving at Al Dhafra in 2019, the jets attacked an IS group tunnel network with Joint Direct Attack Munitions. By comparison, F-22s were introduced in the Middle East five years before conducting their first strike, Abba said.

In September 2019 the 4th Fighter Squadron’s F-35s joined F-15Es in a massive strike, dropping more than 80,000 pounds of bombs on the IS forces in Qanus Island in the Euphrates River.

On another mission on an undisclosed date, two F-35As flying on an air tasking order sortie in the region sensed a surface-to-air missile system from “really far away,” Abba said. The pilots were able to geolocate it and take a radar map of its location for targetable coordinates. Although they did not strike it that day, the data was passed along to command and control and the Intelligence Community. Abba calls this “drive by ISR.”

“The ability of this aircraft to find targets of value even when that’s not what it was specifically tasked to go after is absolutely remarkable,” Abba said.

Readiness also impressed Abba. The 4th Fighter Squadron’s maintainers managed a 70 percent mission capable rate at first for the squadron’s 12 Lightning IIs, but improved over time.

“They brought a truly representative set of maintainers that finished that deployment over 90 percent,” Abba said.

That’s particularly impressive given the challenges maintainers have had overall with the F-35. In 2019, the fleetwide mission capable rate for F-35s was 61.6 percent, about 10 percent lower than legacy fighters.

Future carrier air wings will have a squadron of 16 F-35Cs
Citat:The U.S. Navy has decided that in future, its carrier air wings will have a squadron of 16 F-35Cs instead of 10.
This was disclosed during the Virtual Hook convention on Sept. 11.
The number of strike fighters for each wing will remain at 44 aircraft and the three other squadrons of Super Hornets will field 28 jets.
Each wing will also have a MQ-9 squadron with five to nine aircraft.

In Turn, Dutch Ban F-35 Flights Near Thunderstorms
Citat:Damaged tubes have been found on F-35A fighters. These tubes are part of the On-Board Inert Gas Generation System (OBIGGS) in a fuel tank.
All countries operating F-35As have been advised to avoid flying near storm cells, and to protect aircraft on the ground with shelters or lightning rods. This information was released in the 21st annual progress report VF-35 published this week.
The OBIGGS ensures that the risk of explosion of fuel vapors in, for example, a lightning strike is reduced to a minimum. The damaged tubes can make the fuel tanks less well protected.
After damaged tubes were found on four (non-Dutch) aircraft, further inspections followed. More damaged tubes were found, including on Dutch F-35As. The cause of the problem is still under investigation.
