PostSubject: USAF (United States Air Force)   Sun Aug 01, 2010 7:08 pm

The U.S. Air Force is under the control of the United States Department of the Air Force, which is led by the secretary of the air force, a civilian. Within the Air Force there are nine major commands, organized on a functional basis in the United States and by geographic location overseas. Each major command is led by a four-star general and is comprised of numbered air forces (NAFs), which in turn are made up of air divisions (ADs), and two nonnumbered air forces, which are based overseas.

The organization of operational Air Force units beneath each command varies widely, depending on the type of squadron (combat, air transport, or maintenance), aircraft, and mission. The squadron is the basic organizational unit. The number of aircraft in a squadron depends on the squadron’s purpose. There are generally 10 to 20 aircraft in a bomber squadron, 18 to 24 in a fighter squadron, and 8 to 16 in a transport squadron. Four or more squadrons form a wing, which usually includes separate operations, logistics, and support groups. Two or more wings form a division, and two or more divisions make a numbered air force.

Almost the entire Air Force—active force, reserve force, and air national guard—is divided into ten Aerospace Expeditionary Forces (AEFs). Each AEF is on call (ready for immediate deployment) for 90 days every 15 months, and at least two of the ten AEFs are on call at any one time. Each AEF, with 10,000 to 15,000 personnel, consists of about 90 multirole fighter and bomber aircraft, 31 refueling aircraft, and 13 aircraft for missions involving surveillance (systematically observing people, places, or things), reconnaissance (missions specifically intended to obtain information about an enemy), and electronic warfare (the use of special electronics to jam enemy communications and to cloak U.S. forces from detection by the enemy).



AIRCRAFT AND WEAPONS:

Two fighters—the F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon—make up the backbone of the U.S. Air Force’s attack force. The Air Force uses modified versions of these planes to maintain control of the air by attacking and destroying enemy fighters and enemy antiaircraft capabilities, and for ground attack duties. The Air Force also has a much smaller number of the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighters, designed to elude enemy radar and air defenses. The Air Force assigns its top pilots to fly its fighters. The Air Force is overseeing the development of a new airplane, the F-22, to replace the F-15 and F-16. The F-22 was expected to perform both air superiority and ground attack missions and was scheduled to begin replacing the F-15 and F-16 in 2005.

The Air Force maintains a fleet of about 180 long-range bombers. Eighty-five of the bombers are the aging H model of the B-52 Stratofortress, a plane first introduced in 1961. The Air Force also has 75 of the more modern B-1 Lancer and 21 of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. Air Force bombers can carry nuclear or conventional air-launched cruise missiles (ALCM) and a wide variety of other weapons, such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), a satellite-guided precision bomb. See Bomber Aircraft; Smart Bomb; Bomb.

The Air Force has a large fleet of planes for strategic airlift (carrying troops, equipment, and supplies thousands of kilometers without landing or refueling). The newest strategic airlift plane is the C-17 Globemaster, which can carry about 70,000 kg (about 160,000 lb). In 2004 the Air Force had 120 of these planes and planned to expand the fleet to 180 C-17s. The Air Force also maintains a fleet of about 50 C-5 Galaxies, which can carry more than 90,000 kg (about 200,000 lb) of cargo, and about 80 C-141 Starlifters, which can carry about 30,900 kg (about 68,100 lb) or 200 passengers. The Starlifter can also be reconfigured to carry more than 100 wounded soldiers. For carrying cargo and troops shorter distances, the Air Force relies primarily on the C-130 Hercules, which can carry a cargo of about 20,000 kg (about 44,000 lb) over a distance of more than 3,600 km (more than 2,200 mi).

The Air Force also has deployed and begun to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The Predator UAV can linger over a designated geographic area for many hours to conduct reconnaissance and surveillance, and to direct other forces to strike targets; it also can carry the Hellfire laser-guided precision missile. The larger Global Hawk UAV can fly higher and longer than the Predator and cover more territory.

Bener Hans.....galak banget. Ada sedikit cerita tentang Raptors. US Army juga punya banyak pesawat ini. Tadinya sudah hampir diistirahatkan karena kurang effective. Tapi sewaktu perang Iraq pertama...ternyata Raptors sukses sekali membantai tank2nya Iraq. Mereka tuh bisa terbang low banget.....walaupun teknologi pesawatnya tidak ada yg canggih sama sekali. Dan yg kaya cerutu itu ngeluarin peluru (machine gun) yg ukurannya diatas normal.....hehehehe......jadi aja setelah itu kaga jadi pensiun......hahahaha.......
