Turchia, F-35 & S-400 ... ancora pochi mesi ... :timeistickin:
It could take until the end of the year to fully cut Turkey out of the F-35 program, Pentagon acquisition and sustainment chief Ellen Lord said Jan. 14.
“The majority of our supply chain will be out of Turkey by March,” Lord told defense reporters in Washington, D.C.
However, Lockheed Martin and Pratt & Whitney, the airframe and engine maker of the F-35, respectively, have “contracts that may carry out to the end of the year” with Turkey, Lord said.
She added only that the Pentagon is managing the “unwinding” of that country’s involvement in the program “to minimize impact to production.”
There’s been no discussion with Ankara about the disposition of four F-35s owned by Turkey that are in the US, of which Lord herself has said will not be delivered to Turkish soil.

Collaborazione ... interarmi ...
The Lockheed Martin F-35 has demonstrated a capability to downlink targeting data about multiple “air-breathing threats” to ground forces.
The work took place at White Sands Missile Range in December 2019, according to Lockheed Martin (*).
A pair of US Air Force F-35s were integrated with the US Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS), with the fighters “providing an airborne sensor capability to successfully detect, track and intercept near simultaneous air-breathing threats.”

La RAAF potenzia l'addestramento in patria ...
The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has shifted a substantial amount of training for the Lockheed Martin F-35A to Australia, while still retaining a training presence in the USA.
The focus of RAAF F-35 training has been moved to RAAF Williamtown, where work has been undertaken to develop a full training ecosystem under the country’s Air 6000 2A/B New Air Combat Capability Facilities Project.
“All facilities required to support training at RAAF Williamtown have been completed,” says Australia’s Department of Defence (DoD).
”This includes the installation of maintenance training devices, and the full suite of maintenance training is now undertaken in the new facilities.”

LM punta alla crescita della produzione ed alla diminuzione del costo sulle ore di volo ...
Lockheed Martin is projecting annual production of the F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter could rise to as high as 180 examples by 2024.
The company sees continued sales to US military services as well as potential wins in international fighter procurement competitions, such as in Finland, Switzerland and Canada, steadily boosting production of the combat aircraft.
In 2019, the airframe manufacturer delivered 134 examples of the F-35.
--- --- ---
Shortly after Lockheed Martin’s F-35 production reaches peak capacity, in 2025, the company wants to have significantly lowered the operating cost of the aircraft to $25,000 per hour, down from about $35,000 per hour currently.

Un nuovo problema ...
Hundreds of F-35s could have the wrong fasteners in “critical areas,” according to the Defense Contract Management Agency.
But F-35 builder Lockheed Martin says the problem may not need to be fixed.
“All aircraft produced prior to discovery of this [problem] have titanium fasteners incorrectly installed in locations where the design calls for Inconel,” the F-35 Joint Program Office said in an email in response to a query from Air Force Magazine.
“Because of this, the engineering safety analysis of the issue has assumed that each critical F-35 joint was assembled with the incorrect fasteners.”
Inconel is an alloy of nickel and chromium, and is supposed to be used in places where greater strength and corrosion resistance are required, while the titanium bolts are used in areas where its strength and lightness helps reduce weight.
Titanium, however, has a lower shear strength than Inconel.
Both fasteners are called “eddie bolts” and are similar in appearance except for a number stamped on them.
The titanium bolts cost about $5 apiece, while the Inconel parts cost about $20 each.
A Lockheed spokeswoman said the two parts are “very difficult to distinguish, visually.”

E non c'è soltanto il problema dei bulloni ...
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II has 873 unresolved deficiencies and new problems are being discovered regularly, making reducing the number of issues with the aircraft difficult.
That’s the conclusion of the latest scathing assessment of the stealth fighter from the Annual Report for the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of the Director of Operational Test & Evaluation (DOT&E), released to the US Congress on 30 January (*).

I bulloni non costituiscono un problema per la sicurezza del velivolo ...
The F-35 fleet is safe to fly, despite an unknown number of under-strength fasteners being used to build critical areas of the jet, Pentagon acquisition and sustainment chief Ellen Lord said Jan. 31.
- - -
At a press conference to discuss cyber security rules for Pentagon contractors, Lord said she had “looked at samples of that issue” - meaning the mixed-up fasteners - and said “right now we have assessed that there is no structural compromise of the aircraft.”
She said the root cause analysis continues.
“The JPO is working closely with Lockheed; we will continue to asses if there are any issues, but we have confidence in the integrity of the aircraft at this point.”

Silenzio!
Si Taglia!
The Pentagon is seeking to divert $3.8 billion, largely from its fiscal 2020 weapons procurement budget, in order to fund President Donald Trump’s border wall, according to a reprogramming request to congress obtained by Defense News.
Among the victims of the cuts: a mass of aircraft purchases including F-35 joint strike fighters, C-130J cargo aircraft, MQ-9 Reaper drones and P-8 maritime surveillance planes, as well as ground vehicles and naval priorities.
