Us aircraft carrier flexes muscles in South China Sea!The F-35C crashed into its aircraft carrier


Netizens who care about the battlefield must know that recently, the US has been flexing its fist and muscles in the Indo-Pacific region, showcasing its military power as the “blue star hegemon” in a high-profile way.According to the People’s Daily statistics, by the Beijing time on January 20, the United States navy in the western Pacific around the south China sea area, has deployed the “Carl Vinson” aircraft carrier, “Essex” amphibious assault ships, “American” amphibious assault ships, the aircraft carrier “Lincoln” and “benford” missile destroyer, a total of five navy fleet of aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships.In addition, the Uss Nevada, an Ohio class strategic nuclear submarine, made a rare high-profile appearance at the U.S. Naval Base in Guam.It’s not enough to show off your strength. You have to bring along your “boys.”Not long ago, the studio reported to you the unprecedented assembly of the “Five Aircraft Carriers”! The US and Japan flexed their muscles in the waters south of Okinawa.Among them, the “five aircraft carriers” of the United States and Japan took a group photo, demonstrating their powerful naval and air power.As the Chinese New Year approaches, the US military has taken full advantage of its “force value” and used almost everything available. It can be said that “Sima Zhao’s heart is known to all”, full of “threat” flavor.In response, the Overseas edition of the People’s Daily reported that experts believe that the United States’ recent “paper tigers” in the Indo-Pacific region, such as nuclear submarines and aircraft carrier strike groups, are primarily intended to frighten people, but are of limited practical use.What is more interesting is that the American soldiers who “exert” too much accidentally twisted their back.A US F-35C aircraft crashed into the deck of the USS Carl Vinson during a routine training exercise in the South China Sea, forcing the pilot to eject and injuring seven people, the US Navy Pacific Fleet said in a statement.At present, the cause of the flight accident is still under investigation.The F-35C was reportedly on routine flight training when the incident occurred.The pilot ejected and was recovered by helicopter in stable condition.In addition to the pilot who ejected, six others were injured on the ship’s deck. Three of them needed to be taken to a medical facility in Manila but are now in stable condition, the US Navy Pacific Fleet said, while three others were released after receiving simple treatment on board.It is worth mentioning that this is the first crash of the U.S. Navy’s F-35C fighter jet, a naval variant of the F-35 that has been modified for operation on aircraft carriers.The F-35C is fitted with larger wings than the conventional F-35A and vTOL F-35B, enabling the C-type to take off and land smoothly on the decks of U.S. Navy nuclear-powered carriers.Compared with the F-35B, the f-35C, with its large wings, is slower but can carry more fuel.The F-35C’s weapon bay has a larger capacity than the F-35B’s, so the former can carry the JSA outside weapon glide bomb without sacrificing its stealth capability.In short, the F-35C is better suited for long-range strike missions under strong enemy defense.Last August, the USS Carl Vinson set sail from its home port of San Diego carrying a squadron (VFA-147) of F-35C fighters, the first of its kind to be deployed in combat.After leaving the U.S. mainland, the Carl Vinson continued exercises in the Western Pacific and repeatedly “messed up” with other U.S. Allies in the South China Sea.Last October, for example, the Carl Vinson conducted joint exercises with the Japanese quasi-aircraft carrier Kaga in the South China Sea.Later, as mentioned above, the USS Carl Vinson conducted a large naval exercise with the helicopter carrier Uss Japan.After us and Japanese warships flexed their muscles in the Philippine Sea, two US aircraft carrier strike groups recently moved to the South China Sea to stir up trouble.The U.S. Department of Defense announced that strike groups led by the USS Carl Vinson and uss Abraham Lincoln have been conducting operations in the South China Sea since March 23.China’s defense ministry spokesman ke-fei tan senior colonel has said the United States, as countries outside, in defiance of international law and basic principles in international relations, often in the guise of “freedom of navigation in the south China sea muscle-flexing, provoke a spoiler, continued efforts to maintain peace and stability in the south China sea area, become the direct driving force of tensions in the south China sea.The Carl Vinson, it must be said, was “restless.”Until, that is, their own plane crashed into their own aircraft carrier…Of course, this may just be the epitome of the uss Carl Vinson’s recent story.In addition to this incident, the USS Carl Vinson has had A total of four class-A aircraft accidents in the last six weeks of 2021, three of which occurred within A week, according to the CENTER for Naval Security.There were no injuries in any of the incidents, but the total damage was estimated at more than $2.5 million, the data showed.① The last incident occurred on December 31, 2021, when the right engine of a CMV-22 transport aircraft accidentally caught fire while stationary on the carrier deck.(2) on November 22, local time at 1 o ‘clock, the aircraft carrier was near the Philippine sea routine training, one of the F/A – 18 “super hornet” e carrier-based fighter in the sudden accident, shortly after taking off from the point of the situation, aircraft engine burst into flames on the right side of the two engines, lead to control risk at the plane, the pilot with its experience,Barely managed to steer the plane back to the carrier.③ Only two days later, it happened at about 4:30 a.m. on November 24.Carrier was anti-submarine combat training, a specialized for antisubmarine action of MH – 60 r “airport” anti-submarine helicopter soon after take-off, a helicopter carrying dipping sonar system accident separation from the connecting cable, lead to the very expensive air hanging shout aloud fell into the sea, the considered tried to salvage, but was eventually forced to give up.④ On November 29, an F/A-18E fighter plane issued an engine “Airborne Accessory Transmission (AMAD) pressure warning” from the cockpit, and the pilot made an emergency landing of the aircraft.(Ship knowledge, reference news, World Wide Web, US Navy Times, China Ship Information Center)
