Continuo ad avere ottimi report da Amendola e lo sviluppo è davvero accelerato col conseguimento dei primi risultati.

Mi lascia un pò perplesso il comportamento della Marina Militare, non riesco a capire se non hanno soldi o se vogliono il giocattolo fatto e servito.
Si muovono in maniera strana e non partecipano molto.

In fase avanzata negli Stati Uniti i collaudi del Joint Strike Missile norvegese in vista della sua integrazione sul Lightning II ...
Dal sito dell'AFA (06/18/2018) ...

US-Norwegian Team Completes Major Segment of Joint Strike Missile Testing ...

A joint US-Norwegian team has completed “a large phase” of testing for the Joint Strike Missile, the advanced anti-surface warfare missile designed for the Norwegian Armed Force’s F-35A, the US Air Force said Friday (*).
The 416th Flight Test Squadron at Edwards AFB, Calif., led the testing of the missile with Norwegian government and industry personnel.
In Friday’s announcement, the service said that before moving to integration testing on the F-35A, the missile was tested on F-16s, “a much more proven and mature platform in terms of technology development,” according to Collin Drake, 416th FLTS JSM project engineer.
Drake said that with the F-35 still in development, it is more efficient and effective to use F-16s for mid-cycle tests.
Testing included different versions of the missile, with increasing levels of complexity and capability, and all versions were inert until the final flight test events, during which the missile hit a target with full mission systems software and guidance.
Live releases of the missile were conducted at the Utah Test and Training Range.

A margine dei fatti riguardanti lo sviluppo e il perfezionamento del velivolo ... ritengo sia interessante dare un'occhiata a quanto sta avvenendo in questi giorni fra Stati Uniti/NATO da una parte e Turchia dall'altra.
Il paese mediorientale, attualmente partner di 3 livello nel programma JSF, ha deciso recentemente l'acquisto del sistema missilistico difensivo russo S-400 e la cosa non è piaciuta all'Alleanza Atlantica che teme venga compromessa la segretezza dei dati sensibili degli F-35 la consegna del primo dei quali è ormai imminente ...

Moves by the US Senate and members of the House of Representatives to block the delivery of the Lockheed Martin F-35 to Turkey have intensified, increasing tensions with Ankara.
The US Senate passed the 2019 National Defense Authorisation Act on 18 June with a clause that would stop the delivery of the F-35 to Turkey.
Passage of the authorisation bill came three days after a bi-partisan group of US representatives wrote a letter (*) to Secretary of Defense James Mattis, asking him to block the F-35 deliveries.
Lockheed is scheduled to roll-out the first completed F-35A ordered by the Turkish air force on 21 June.
--- --- ---
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım criticized the US Senate vote on June 19, according to Hurriyet Daily News (**), a Turkish publication.
“The decision is an unfortunate development,” he said.
“Turkey is not without alternatives. Such attempts are regrettable and goes against the soul of strategic partnership.”

Turchia ... la consegna è avvenuta ...

Cita:
Lockheed Martin officially presented the first F-35A fighters to Turkey in a 21 June rollout ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas.
Turkey is not expected to receive the stealth fighter into its own airspace until 2020, though the country’s pilots will begin training on the new aircraft at Luke AFB, Arizona at the end of the month.
Turkish aircraft maintainers have already begun their training at Eglin AFB, Florida.
The formal roll-out ceremony for the Turkish F-35 comes just days after the US Senate and members of the House of Representatives moved to block the delivery of the aircraft to Turkey.

S400 ... un vicino della cui presenza si farebbe volentieri a meno ...
Cita:
Air Combat Command boss Gen. Mike Holmes said it's inevitable that F-35s will be stationed close to facilities operating the Russian S400 air defense system, and deciding when and where F-35 deployments will happen is still a work in progress.
The next permanent F-35 operating location will be Alaska, then Europe, he said.
Turkey wants to buy the S400 system and is also buying F-35s.
Holmes said he ideally would like to "avoid" having the F-35 in close proximity to the Russian system, which ​he described as having longer range and greater "sensitivity of the sensors" versus the S300 system.
Though he said the USAF and the Army will be working together to "defeat" the S400, he declined to say specifically what role the Army can play.

Mr. President Trump ...:matusipazz:

Cita:
Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu says in a TV interview that US president Donald Trump personally promised to ensure the delivery of the Lockheed Martin F-35A to his country.
Opposition from the US Senate, House of Representatives and State Department to the delivery of the F-35A to Turkey is putting the final delivery of the stealth fighter at risk.
Lawmakers and government officials complain that Turkey’s decision to purchase the Russian-made Almaz-Antey S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft system, alleged human rights abuses and military decisions by the country’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan put the Middle Eastern nation out of line with US interests.
But, Trump told Turkey’s government that he would take the steps necessary to make sure the NATO ally received the aircraft it ordered from Lockheed Martin, according to the country’s foreign minister in an interview with Turkish television station NTV on 29 June.
The National Security Council confirmed that the US president spoke with Erdoğan, but declined to confirm or deny that the F-35 was part of the conversation.

Nella mitica 'Plant 42', culla di innumerevoli programmi 'neri', Northrop Grumman lavora alacremente alla produzione dei tronconi centrali di fusoliera degli F-35 .....

Immagine

Cita:
Northrop Grumman entered full-rate production on the F-35 Lightning II’s centre fuselage at its Palmdale, California facility in May in order to meet increasing order quantities from the Pentagon and international customers.
The company said the 400th centre fuselage was completed and delivered to F-35 prime contractor Lockheed Martin last month.
Production of the 500th centre fuselage began the week of 18 June.
Situated on the edge of the Mojave Desert in California, the factory -- known as Building 401 on Site 4 of Plant 42 -- supplies fuselages for aircraft final assembly facilities in Fort Worth, Texas; Italy and Japan.
An adjacent bay in the same building once was the final assembly site of the B-2A bomber.
It sat empty during a media tour of the full facility in December 2015.
During the latest tour of Building 401 in mid-June, Northrop officials refused to discuss the secret location of the B-21A bomber assembly site, but the former B-2A bay was walled off and not accessible.

Accordo fatto fra Pentagono e LM sul 'lotto 11' ...
Continua la diminuzione dei prezzi ...

Cita:
The Pentagon and Lockheed Martin have reached a handshake deal for the eleventh batch of F-35 joint strike fighters, the Pentagon’s top acquisistion official confirmed July 15.
The lot 11 order will be the largest so far for the F-35 program, purchasing 141 jets for U.S. and international customers.
"The JPO and Lockheed Martin have made progress and are in the final stages of negotiation on the Lot 11 production contract,” said Ellen Lord, the Pentagon’s undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment, in a statement.
“We have a handshake agreement which symbolizes the Department of Defense’s commitment to not only equip our warfighters with the world’s greatest fifth generation aircraft, but it also represents great value to the U.S. taxpayers, our allies and international partners. With each production lot, the F-35 unit recurring flyaway costs continue to come down across the board.”

Prospettive di stretta collaborazione fra USAF e RAF nel teatro europeo ...

Cita:
The United Kingdom’s new F-35B strike fighters were on full display over the last week as the Royal Air Force celebrated its centennial.
Three of the four F-35s, which were delivered one month ago, flew over London as part of the Royal Air Force's 100th anniversary flypast.
Three days later, one of the strike fighters put on an impressive performance at the Royal International Air Tattoo, hovering over the center of the flightline at RAF Fairford, England, demonstrating its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities.
“The F-35 is an enormous force multiplier. The UK just received their first four F-35Bs [in June] and miraculously they got three of the four aircraft airborne” for the anniversary flyover, one more than originally planned, said US Air Forces in Europe boss Gen. Tod Wolters.
Wolters said the F-35 has been a centerpiece of the bilateral discussions he’s participated in here at the air tattoo, saying the fifth generation fighter is a “game changer” that will improve the “responsiveness, resilience, and lethality” across all domains for both NATO and on the European continent.

Grazie per i video. Molto suggestivi. Bello il display. Sarà una mia impressione la le traiettorie erano disegnate. Non ho visto nessun "tentennamento" nei cambi di direzione. Ottimi controli di volo. Sarà solo una mia impressione.
