La stagione degli uragani ... 🌀🌀

Quote

Air Force bases along the Gulf of Mexico are preparing for twin tropical storm systems that are expected to make landfall as hurricanes within the next several days.
Tropical Storm Laura, as well as a tropical depression likely to strengthen into Tropical Storm Marco, could grow into a rare case of two tropical cyclones to barrel through the Gulf of Mexico at the same time, according to the National Weather Service. 
They are slated to strike Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, and Puerto Rico during the week of Aug. 23.
Wind and water could smack communities in the Florida Panhandle that have barely started rebuilding from other recent storms. 
Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., was decimated by Category 5 Hurricane Michael in 2018 and is now staring down new potential threats.

USAF ... un preoccupato CSM Brown lancia l'allarme ... 😟

Quote

The Air Force has a window of opportunity to change and it must do so quickly, because “our advantage as a nation, as an Air Force, as a joint team, is eroding,” Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. said Aug. 29, noting the service this week will release a paper called, “Accelerate Change or Lose.”
The Air Force has been engaged in conflict—mainly in the Middle East - for the last 30 years, he explained, while “at the same time, our adversaries, …China and Russia, have done things to accelerate and or move to impact our advantage. And so, our advantage is eroding, so that’s why I say accelerate change or lose,” Brown said during a speech at the virtual National Guard Association of the United States conference. 
The potential consequences of not adapting are dire, Brown said: “Look at losing a great power competition. Look at losing a high-end fight. Look at losing quality Airmen, losing our credibility. And, unfortunately, I’m also thinking about how we might lose aspects of our national security.”

Prove di guerra futura ...

Quote

More than 1,600 personnel, 60 companies, over a dozen aircraft, and dozens of radars and sensors came together for a massive Air Force-led event that utilized everything from boots on the ground to satellites in space to test how the service expects to fight a war in the future. 
The event culminated when a cruise missile was downed by a “smart” bullet.
The Air Force’s second “Advanced Battle Management System onramp,” long delayed because of COVID-19, took place on Sept. 3, largely within four national training ranges, as well as a part operations center, part fusion cell at Joint Base Andrews, Md. 
The new cloud-based, artificial intelligence-fueled command center brought together new and legacy ways of fighting wars into the service’s push for joint all-domain command and control.

D'ora in avanti chiamateli "e" ...

For nearly 80 years, experimental X-planes have been the marker of cutting-edge aerospace technology. 
Now, the digital age is ushering in a new kind of aircraft: the e-series.
The Air Force and Space Force will begin adding “e” to the names of aircraft, weapons, and satellites that are designed and tested using digital engineering, Air Force Secretary Barbara M. Barrett said Sept. 14 at the Air Force Association’s virtual Air, Space & Cyber Conference. 
“For 73 years, the entire history of the Air Force, X-planes have represented technological innovation,” Barrett said. 
“Today, the e-plane and e-sat will join them in making history and ensuring Airmen and space professionals have modern tools to protect our nation.”

Nonostante tutto ... li stiamo aspettando nel Regno Unito entro il 2021 ...

The head of U.S. Air Forces in Europe is “convinced” the command will base F-35As at RAF Lakenheath, U.K., on time in late 2021, despite some delays to military construction and a possible slowdown in F-35 deliveries because of COVID-19.
“I am clear eyed that we’ve got a fair amount of work to do from the infrastructure needed to get the facilities ready, and at the same time work through the natural challenges of any bed down that has to do with the appropriate connectivity, security clearances, and those types of activities required to get an airplane in,” USAFE boss Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian told reporters during a panel at AFA’s virtual Air, Space & Cyber Conference on Sept. 14. 
“But, we’re looking at the end of ’21 as the target remains on track for us to get the airplanes here.”
The original plan was to have the aircraft begin arriving this year, but that slipped to 2021. 
Now construction delays have threatened that timeline, with projects about 25 percent over the $480 million budget ...

E, come c'era da aspettarsi, emergono confusione e dubbi ... e l'USAF chiede che il prefisso venga usato soltanto nel periodo che precede la produzione del velivolo ...

Quote

Les avions, les satellites et autres armes conçus à l’aide de l’ingénierie numérique seront désignés comme faisant partie de la nouvelle « série électronique » de l’armée de l’air et recevront le préfixe « e », a annoncé lundi la secrétaire de l’armée de l’air, Barbara Barrett. 
Sauf, que cette désignation porte à confusion, comme nous allons le voir.
--- --- ---
Cette annonce a initialement semé la confusion sur les réseaux sociaux, car les utilisateurs ont souligné que l'armée américaine utilise déjà le préfixe « E » pour désigner les avions qui transportent des équipements pour la guerre électronique, l'alerte avancée aéroportée et les missions de commandement et de contrôle aéroportés, ainsi que ceux qui fournissent des communications.
--- --- ---
L'armée de l'air a ensuite précisé que l'indicateur eSeries « e » devrait être rendu en minuscules pour le différencier des avions de guerre électronique et d'alerte rapide qui reçoivent le préfixe « E ». 
Mais le mal semble être fait. 
L’USAF a donc demandé à ce que l'indicateur « e » soit temporaire et que l’abandon soit fait une fois que le programme entre en production.

Dai non divaghiamo. Purtroppo non siamo (o forse "sono") venuto a capo del problema sul come spostare singoli messaggi in altre discussioni, ma cerchiamo comunque di evitare dei doppioni.

Esercitazione "Thracian Viper 20" ... un velato (ma non troppo) avvertimento alla Turchia ?

Quote

Airmen from Aviano Air Base, Italy, and Ramstein Air Base, Germany, will train with their counterparts from Bulgaria, Greece, and Romania as part of exercise Thracian Viper 20, the 31st Fighter Wing said Sept. 18.
The exercise, which is being held Sept. 18-25 at Graf Ignatievo Air Base, Bulgaria, looks to boost participating air forces’ “operational capacity, capability, and interoperability” with its host country, a wing release stated.
“During the exercise, U.S. and Bulgarian air forces will conduct training, enhancing our ability to rapidly deploy to remote locations and take command and control of the region,” U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa wrote in a release.
