Second Line of Defense has published a new book on the F-35 and shaping a 21st century concepts of operations on Amazon and is available worldwide on Amazon stores in their digital format for reading on Kindle.
This book about the arrival of the F-35 and its interactive role with other key innovations, which are reshaping the defence forces of the democracies.
As one analyst, put it: “If you did not have the F-35, you would have to invent to be part of and further the innovations we are pursuing to reshape defence, combat, and homeland security operations.”
This book draws on literally hundreds of visits with pilots, maintainers, testers, industrialists and visits in Asia, Europe and the Middle East discussing the F-35 and how it is viewed by key states as part of their defence transformation.
The F-35 has arrived…..
In the first section, we will look at the intersection between the arrival of the F-35 and innovation and transformation of defence capabilities and approaches.
In the second section, we will look at some of the key elements in the F-35 global enterprise which will see an unique arrival of an entire global interactive fleet of users, who can work with one another to meet homeland defence, extended perimeter defence, or expeditionary operations as needed by the leadership of that particular F-35 partner state.
The reach of the F-35 as a data sharing and decision making asset is unprecedented in combat history. In the third section, we look briefly at some elements of the evolving strategic environment within which the F-35 can provide some solution sets, which can enhance the capability for national defence or embedded coalition capabilities which can empower a diversity of coalitions in the defence of the homeland or in extended perimeter defence. In short, the F-35 is here now.
And key partners are already rethinking how they will use the plane based on direct engagement in the development, production, training, flying or maintaining the aircraft today. The book examines US, UK, Dutch, Australian and Italian perspectives on the F-35 and its impact.
It sells for $9.95 on the US Amazon website.
