Israel called the advantages of its F-35I over the Russian Su-27
TEL AVIV, (BM) – The National Interest magazine published an article in which it noted that the main problem of the American F-35 fighters is their maintenance, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
Countries such as Japan and the United Kingdom must contact Lockheed Martin to obtain the necessary equipment or parts.
At the same time, experts said that Israel was able to agree on such conditions when all aircraft undergo maintenance at the Nevatim base
Analysts believe that Jerusalem has the most “capable” version of the fighter – the F-35I. According to the Israeli military, this combat vehicle is significantly superior to the 4th generation aircraft.
Experts singled out the C4 command and control system as features of the fighter, which allows real-time updating of data on the combat situation, as well as interaction with F-16 squadrons or ground forces.
The main advantage of the F-35 over the Su-27 in Israel is considered the AN / ASQ-239EW protection system, which is able to inform the pilot about the danger long before the moment when the pilot of the Russian fighter “learns about its existence”.
It is reported that the Israeli version of this defense system is different from the American one, given the threats typical of the Middle East region.
