The Air Force Research laboratory and the Office of Naval Research are currently in the process of the development of fast and accurate laser weapons that can burn holes through the enemy targets at the speed of light. At the same time, the U.S. Navy is developing a laser-based application for the Marine Corps ‘ F-35B, designed for the effective maintenance of the team’s ambitions for the coming years of war.

The Pentagon is sending more than 50 of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters in Europe over the next few years to scare off Russia and NATO to prepare for a whole new type of warfare.

“By the time aircraft get there, there will be a 100-plus F-35s, and with our European partners,” Air Force Gen. James Holmes, told reporters at a recent Air Force Association Conference in Maryland’s National Harbor. “We are on our European partners, who already have their F-35s.”

Even though it’s full of a little more than 50 combat aircraft will not come until the early 2020s, and the preparations are already in full swing. The air force does not specify where the F-35 will be sent with the indication of the security. However, there are a number of important strategic areas in the region, including the Baltic states, and various locations in Eastern Europe, which is considered to be.


With a focus on the future of the combatants “work” together with our European allies, Holmes said it was “important to our ability to compete and acts as a deterrent in Europe.”

Bringing F-35s to the continent of europe, and introduces a number of new attack options in the US-and NATO-led forces in order to prevent a potential Russian advance. It brings us the 5th Generation of the car, including the targeting of sensors, with never-before-seen range, air-to-air weapons, and a dronelike opportunity to the sea and areas of interest.

The US and allied F-35s all have a common data link to be distributed, but integrated, attack options. In a tactical sense, it seems that many of the high-speed F-35, on the strength of the long-range sensors, and targeting technologies, could be well-positioned to identify and destroy mobile weapons, launchers and other vital, but less of on-the-move targets.

“As soon as the F-35, you see that it can be moved and re-used. It will operate with our allies, to reassure that the goal of deterrence as well,” Col. William Marshall, 48th Fighter Wing Commander, told reporters at the AFA. In the future, F-35s and will work with the united states air force in Europe.


The weapons, the ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) technology, the multirole features of the F-35 is a wide range of attack options that may be needed in the region. The F-35 is a complete set of weapons separation testing, and is now in a position to be armed with the AIM-9X, AIM-120, AIM-132, GBU-12, JDAM, JSOW, SDB-1) and the Paveway IV, and Lockheed Martin in the data statements. The F-35 has been configured to allow for the transport of more than 3,500 kilograms of explosives in the stealth mode and over 18,000 lb uncontested.

As a part of the equation, and the F-35 can be called upon to act as a key element of the U.S. nuclear deterrence strategy. In the past few years, the F-35s have been deployed to the Pacific theater to take part in military manoeuvres over the Korean Peninsula.

The use of the speed, flexibility, and a lower flight compared to what a bomber like the B-2 would be a nuclear-capable F-35 and presents the new security threats from a potential adversary.


A nuclear-armed F-35 will be able to respond much more quickly, and with a low-yield nuclear weapons, or, in the case that the new information from intelligence agencies, it found a new audience is created. The lower the yield of the nuclear weapons the F-35 can be highly destructive, even more of a surgical nuclear attack is to eliminate the targets, without necessarily having an influence on much larger sections of the country.

Air Force officials say the service is now on the integration of the B61 mod 12 nuclear bomb, the F-35 as part of the upcoming 4th of software to achieve. The Block 4 F-35 to become in the next ten years, which includes over 50 technical changes to the aircraft are designed to be hardware and software that is building — will be added to the six-month period, the steps between April 2019 to and including October 2024.

With the latest version of the B61 nuclear gravity bomb, of which the origin is way back in the mid-1960s, it is designed to be a medium to high yield strategic and tactical nuclear weapons, in accordance with that is also the coat of arms features a two-stage radiation implosion design. The most up to date Mod 12 has shown that a bunker-buster and the earth-penetrating capability, according to the Federation of American Scientists (FAS).


The B61 Mod 12 is designed to be a “Tail Subassembly’ to the bomb, JDAM-type GPS, allowing for a new level of precision to the focused, according to data provided by the Federation of American Scientists.

The text of the administration’s Nuclear Posture Review, which was released last year, specifically citing the importance of the dual-capable aircraft (DCA) in Europe, and argues that a nuclear-armed F-35 is vital for the deterrence of Russia.

“We are committed to the upgrade of the DCA is to go with the nuclear-capable F-35 aircraft. We are working with the alliance in order to best maintain and enhance, where appropriate, the commitment, the viability and operational effectiveness of the DCA, based in Europe,” the Nuclear Posture Review states.

A strategic point of view, the 31st Fighter Wing Commander at Aviano Air Base in Italy, on It. Gen. Daniel Lasica, put it this way:


“We want to make the F-35s are too predictable and the unpredictable,” he said.
