In this case they had their personal equipment but fell in on things like MRAPs or up-armored SUVs that never left theater.
6 months for reserves? Yeah, haven't seen that 9 to 12 months for the Reserves, less for the Guard.

After 2007 units fell in on in-theater equipment, the only things they brought were weapons, gear, and special need items for the mission. Then again unless the fighting is initial day one, units will fall in on equipment already there, unless they need to bring forward new items like Strykers or whatever the new wonder toy of the day is.

National Guard and US Army Reserve units deploy as complete units unless they are split up to fill out other units of the same component and after the mess of the let's mix units in 2003, they don't mingle them together beyond a company working with another company.

Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

Many Squadrons have achieved IOC with the F-35 we currently have them in to soon. And the "Gorilla in the room" is simply that for land based equipment FOC has been always the standard and we've corrected many units from many countries to achieve that standard.

All you have to do is look at the last 2 years of submissions. They were mostly about fixing those same issues.

This has been done in the past as well as was submitted for all other equipment "classes" including this thread.

Every time we rush to get something in due to external or other reasons, we pay a steep price, more so for Don and I would think to an unknown degree Andy.

For one, and to be nice, this "stuff" overclocks my ram!

The clock is running and these type of issues take away from all the equipment that is actually at FOC but ARE NOT in the game because we're chasing these issues.

I mentioned earlier I have such equipment dating back to 2015, I recently found from files kept from a different browser.

ONLY Israel has declared their F-35i at FOC on DEC. 06, 2017 after a year of training and evaluation.
https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/12/0...y-operational/

Second Squadron comes on line operationally on 10 Aug. 2020.
https://www.jewishpress.com/news/isr...al/2020/08/10/

And Israel does what it has always with any foreign piece of equipment they but after "playing with it" awhile, they improve upon it. In this case it took just 4 years to do so in NOV 2020.
https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/is...tel-nof-648867
https://theaviationist.com/2020/11/1...just-received/


Remember Israel's Strategic and Tactical situation has never allowed for such things as budget delays, logistical supply issues (ODIN for us as already posted.) but, the most important item of all is their not flying our F-35's and therefore NOT dealing with our issues .

Like INDIA, VIETNAM etc. from one of those above last last patches can only buy the T-90S and NOT the better T-90A or if you wish substitute foreign operated ABRAMS with NO DU armor as a "starter" on that topic.

I hope on this equipment we're not "drifting away from our core values", some won't like what I just wrote, and that's OK with me. But it doesn't change nor should it from how we've operated out here for so many years now.

Well this post has now gotten me in the right frame of mind to fight the "Redman" tomorrow. I feel bad for the person in the suit as our training Lt. likes it when I train the way we're expected to fight. And we got a "new hire" class, should be fun!

Have a good night/morning all!

Regards,
Pat

Typically USMC Reserve units will "fill in" at about company level. So an active duty battalion that's undermanned will fold it's three companies into two then add a reserve company. The same applies to artillery (at battery level) and air (at squadron level).

This OF COURSE doesn't apply to "technical" (electronic maintenance, crypto, intel, and such) jobs where the reserve personnel will be doled out as needed.

Then there are a handful of units unique to the USMC Reserve, like a field hospital (i.e. the USMC version of MASH) and Civil Affairs.

Another thing Israel could careless about, "Intellectual Property", delaying the F-35 from going into full production.

They might still be around, however, I can only confirm that up to 2015 at this time.

I'll have to recheck later after work, which I must get ready for NOW!!

Pat

I cannot find something more official in English, but the Greek Rafale deal has been approved with the first 6 Rafales coming in the first half of 2021.

Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

Aeraaa here you go!

From my pesky files I'm just for the time being going to provide one source, concerning Greece procuring the Rafale F3-O4T most likely 6 brand new ones and 12 used ones. They will replace only the Mirage 2000 EG/BG.
https://theaviationist.com/2020/09/1...mbat-aircraft/


So bottom-line they'll keep the Mirage 2000-5F Mk2
https://theaviationist.com/2019/12/0...show-of-force/


Also not going away is the following and I think it's awesome...
https://www.milavia.net/specials/haf-117-combat-wing/

That's right, No S**T!!


We're just going to have to keep an eye on this deal, as there is also the possibility Greece might get the Rafale F3-R which reached IOC this past Summer which I'll build at some point as we have time before FOC for France at a minimum.
https://theaviationist.com/2019/12/1...nch-air-force/

Don the next is for you "more directly", be advised I'm building ONE of these for the game in if you will, a NATO version. There was a lot more to this plane then the "dumb bomb" Vietnam or "nuke" penetrator in Europe versions. The F-105 "THUD"...
