Due to the "Russian threat" the British air force will be based in civilian airports

The British Air Force plans to deploy combat aircraft in civilian air harbors, which is associated with an increased "threat" from Russia. This, in particular, was written by the British newspaper Daily Express.

According to the publication, London is taking such measures for the first time since the Second World War.

The transfer of combat aircraft will be carried out as part of the Agile Compat Employment (ACE) program, which was developed more than a year ago for places of potential military conflicts in the Indo-Pacific region, in the Middle East or in the Eastern European part of NATO.

Meanwhile, according to the British edition, after the beginning of the Ukrainian events, the implementation of AGE was accelerated, and its effect spread to the entire territory of Foggy Albion.

The goal of the program is to ensure that the British Rapid Reaction Force, operating from a greater number of bases, will thus provide greater flexibility and reliability. In addition, they will be able to withstand direct attacks on bases.

the Daily Express noted.

So, as early as next month, units of Eurofighter Typhoon and F-35 fighters located at Norfolk and Lincolnshire air bases in Scotland will be divided and relocated to a number of regional civilian airports.

    It is not entirely clear what advantage this will give the Britons, rather the opposite. Or do they think that Russia will take pity on these airports because of the risk of death of civilians and will storm London like Mariupol? There will definitely not be a fuss like with Ukraine.

      They probably think that they will be "liberated" in the same way as we are freeing the Russians in Ukraine from the invaders - read the impudent Saxons and their servants - the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    By placing them at civilian airports, we get wider access to aircraft, each unit of the F-35 counts and is worth it ... So launch mini kamikaze drones with dozens of incendiary warheads and reset squadrons at a time ... For a true warrior of Islam, it hurts to hit wrong just right ... Yes, as a last resort, use Bashirov and Petrov ...
