USA: deux femmes Marines nommées à des postes de combat, une première


Washington, 10 mai 2016 (AFP) -


Le corps des US Marine a nommé deux femmes à des postes d'infanterie de première ligne, une nouveauté pour cette branche de l'armée américaine rendue possible par de nouvelles règles du Pentagone qui a ouvert aux femmes tous les postes de combat.

Le corps des Marines a indiqué mardi dans un communiqué avoir accordé à deux militaires leurs requêtes de transfert "dans des spécialités d'armement pour combat sur le terrain". L'une sera opératrice de mitrailleuse, l'autre fusilier.

"Les requêtes de ce genre aident le Marine Corps à continuer de mettre en oeuvre l'intégration des genres à travers toutes les spécialités militaires", a-t-il poursuivi.

L'administration du président Barack Obama a décidé en 2013 que toutes les positions de combat des forces armées devraient être accessibles aux femmes d'ici 2016, y compris l'infanterie et les forces spéciales.

Les Marines avaient réclamé des exemptions, mais leurs demandes avaient été rejetées par le ministre de la Défense Ashton Carter.

Mais les deux pionnières vont devoir attendre pour prendre leurs fonctions car une femme doit être placée à un "poste d'encadrement" dans leur unité au moins trois mois au préalable.

Des femmes militaires se sont fréquemment retrouvées dans des situations de combat en Irak et en Afghanistan, mais elles n'avaient jamais pu être nommées à des postes de combat en ligne de front.

Les femmes représentent actuellement environ 15,6% du personnel militaire américain en service actif (1,34 million) toutes branches confondues (Marines, Navy, Air Force et armée de terre).

U.S. Marine Corps has ordered to Bell Helicopter 12 UH-1Y Venom and 16 AH-1Z Viper helicopters
May 14, 2016






Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, was awarded a $461.1 million contract in March 2016 from the U.S. Pentagon to supply the U.S. Marine Corps with more than two dozen new utility and attack helicopters.

The contract includes 12 UH-1Y Venom utility helicopters and 16 AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters and the associated auxiliary fuel kits.

“The UH-1Y utility and AH-1Z attack helicopters continue to perform for the United States Marine Corps, delivering on our promise of technologically advanced aircraft the Marines can rely on to accomplish their challenging missions,” said Lisa Atherton, executive vice president of Military Business for Bell Helicopter. “The Venom and Viper are a powerful, comprehensive duo, designed and manufactured to reduce logistical requirements and environmentally hardened to perform for armed forces over land or sea.”

The Bell AH-1Z Viper is among the world’s most lethal anti-armor attack helicopter, capable of carrying the widest array of ordnance of any helicopter in the world. Target identification is crucial in the modern battlefield, and the Bell AH-1Z’s Target Sight System provides the longest range and highest accuracy of any helicopter sight available, as it allows the operators of the AH-1Z to identify and track multiple targets outside the enemy’s ability to visually detect the Viper. Unlike other attack helicopters, the AH-1Z Viper has integrated air-to-air strike capability in addition to superior air-to-ground anti-armor performance. This capability set makes the AH-1Z the ideal platform to meet the requirements of land warfare scenarios in any of the potential hot spots around the world.

The Bell UH-1Y Venom is a combat-proven utility helicopter slated to support the United States Marine Corps’ global missions for the next four decades. The Bell UH-1Y engages threats, inserts or exfiltrates personnel and performs under the most punishing operating conditions, making it the ultimate tactical utility helicopter. The Bell UH-1Y was first deployed with the United States Marine Corps in 2009. The Huey lineage can be traced back to combat action in Vietnam, but today’s Bell UH-1Y is a new construction, thoroughly modern, marinized combat aircraft.

These attack and utility helicopters are currently in production with the work being performed in the Fort Worth, Texas manufacturing facility and also in the Amarillo, Texas aircraft assembly facility. This contract is part of the U.S. Marine Corps’ H-1 Program of Record, calling for the purchase of 189 AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters and 160 UH-1Y Venom utility helicopters.

1-star: Marines Need Gear That Will Give Them the Edge on the Battlefield
Matthew L. Schehl, Marine Corps Times 5:39 p.m. EDT May 18, 2016

The one-star in charge of outfitting leathernecks with everything they drive, shoot and wear says Marines should never have to get in a fair fight.

Figuring out how to equip Marines with the most modern gear in a time of tight budgets is what keeps Brig. Gen. Joseph Shrader up at night. Marines expect and deserve equipment that will give them the edge on the battlefield, the head of Marine Corps Forces Systems Command said Wednesday during the Sea-Air-Space expo outside Washington, D.C.

“They should never have to face an enemy on equal terms,” Shrader said. “We should always have the technological advantage, we can never cede that.”

The Marine Corps’ shift to a greater emphasis on technology — from combat gear to training — means it needs as flexible an acquisition strategy as possible, he added. He urged industry leaders to think about ways to create modular systems that can be easily upgraded piece-by-piece.

The Marines are also looking to share parts across systems. As they transition to new platforms like the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, for example, they should be able to use parts from older equipment, like the light armored vehicle.

“It has to be integrated into the system but in such a manner where you can take it off of one system, like the LAV, and also use on the JLTV or any of the other vehicle platforms we have coming along,” he said.

The service is experimenting with 3-D printers as well, so Marines can create their own parts. SYSCOM is looking to field 3-D printers throughout the fleet so Marines can experiment with finding their own solutions to gear needs or shortages, said Col. Walt Yates, the command's program manager.

“We’ll pitch out a problem to them ... and they can go tinker with this stuff and see what they can come up with,” he said. “It’s a way that we take that capability — 3-D printing — and tap into the young minds that we recruit. We just give them the tools to come up with some prototype things and see what they come up with.”

Vers une puissance de feu et des capacités accrues pour les appareils hybrides MV-22 Osprey des MarinesPosté dans Amériques, Forces aériennes par Laurent Lagneau Le 21-05-2016




Initialement, le V-22 Osprey, un appareil hybride qui se comporte comme un hélicoptère et un avion, a été conçu pour des missions de transport, d’évacuation sanitaire et de sauvetage avec pour seule arme une mitrailleuse (7,62 mm ou 12,7 mm) fixée sur sa rampe de chargement.

Puis, ses constructeurs, à savoir Boeing et Bell, ont cherché à le doter d’une capacité de tir vers l’avant, notamment en installant une nacelle de roquettes. Mais, pour l’US Marine Corps, l’armement de ses MV-22 Ospreys est encore trop léger. D’où une réflexion actuellement en cours pour accroître significativement sa puissance de feu pour répondre à des « situations d’urgence » éventuelles en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient.

À l’occasion de la Sea Air Space expo, organisée cette semaine à Washington, le général Jon Davis, le responsable de l’aviation de l’USMC, a fait le point sur les systèmes susceptibles d’être intégrés à bord de ces MV-22 Osprey.

« Le Corps des Marines teste différentes armes et des capteurs sur ses avions à rotors basculants, afin de tirer le meilleur parti de cette plate-forme », a en effet déclaré le général Davis. « Nous envisageons vraiment le même genre de systèmes que nous avons sur nos (hélicoptères) AH-1 [Cobras] et UH-1Y [Venom] ainsi que sur nos KC-130 [Hercules]« , a-t-il ajouté.

Parmi les munitions que le MV-22 serait susceptible d’emporter, le général Davis a cité le missile Hellfire, la bombe à guidage laser/GPS GBU-44/B Viper Strike et le missile AGM-176 Griffin, conçu par Raytheon avec le souci de réduire le risque des dommages collatéraux. Il est aussi question du drone « kamikaze » Switchblade d’AeroVironment.

Outre la puissance de feu, l’USMC songe à donner à ses MV-22 Osprey une capacité de guerre électronique en leur intégrant une nacelle de brouillage ALQ-231 Intrepid Tiger, laquelle équipe déjà les AV-8B Harrier et les F/A-18. Et il est aussi envisagé de les doter de capteurs ISR (Intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), à l’image de ce qui été fait pour les KC-130 Hercules utilisés par les Marines.

Marine cyber warriors will mess with their enemies' heads
Matthew L. Schehl, Marine Corps Times 11:22 a.m. EDT May 22, 2016


Psyching out their adversaries will be one of the best ways Marines will dominate future battlefields, the general in charge of the Marine Corps’ cyber warfare command says.

Unlike the other services, the Marine Corps is looking to build out offensive information warfare capabilities for Marine air-ground task forces, Brig. Gen. Loretta Reynolds, commander of Marine Forces Cyber Command, said at a recent panel discussion at the Sea-Air-Space expo outside Washington.

Information warfare is more than just protecting networks or knowing what the cyber terrain is, she said.

“It’s also trying to get inside the enemy’s cognitive space in a way to have him make choices that you want him to make, when you want him to make it,” Reynolds said. “What we’re talking about is bringing it all together in a way that provides the commander options to dominate the information environment and to get after the enemy’s thought processes.”

Marine Pilots Say Software Rarely a Problem for F-35B
Lara Seligman, Defense News 5:16 p.m. EDT May 24, 2016


WASHINGTON — As the US Air Force prepares to declare its F-35A jets operational in just a few short months, the service is still working through software glitches that cause the jets systems to fail and need to be rebooted — sometimes mid-flight.

But the Marines, who have been flying their F-35Bs operationally since last summer, say they rarely see such shutdown events.

The test pilots at Edwards Air Force Base, California, see the systems on their F-35A jets fail even before takeoff about once every three flights. But the Marine Corps jets at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, almost always start up clean, Capt. Jordan Hedges, F-35B pilot and powerline office in charge, told Defense News in a recent interview.

During a development test flight of an Air Force F-35A at Edwards early this month, the jet’s team was on the ground troubleshooting for nearly two hours before the aircraft finally launched. But for the Marines at Yuma, it usually only take 15 or 20 minutes to ready the plane for takeoff, Hedges said.

CH-53K heavy lift helicopters completes first 20K lift
May 28, 2016


The U.S. Marine Corps’ newest helicopter, the CH-53K, completed its first external load flight test carrying a 20,000 lb. load May 26 at Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation’s Development Flight Center in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Envelope expansion tests will continue with incrementally increasing speeds with the 20,000 load, and then on to the CH-53K’s requirement, a 27,000-lb. external payload.

The first two CH-53K heavy lift helicopters achieved their first flights on October 27, 2015, and January 22, 2016, respectively. To date these helicopters have achieved over 50 flight hours combined including one flight at speeds over 140 knots. The third and fourth King Stallion aircraft will join the flight test program this summer.

As the King Stallion flight test program proceeds, both of the current flying aircraft will be exercised to expand the external load envelope. Initial external payloads weighing 12,000 pounds will be flown first in hover and then incrementally to speeds up to 120 knots. The aircraft will then carry 20,000 and 27,000 pound external payloads.

The CH-53K King Stallion is a large, heavy-lift cargo helicopter currently being developed by Sikorsky Aircraft for the United States Marine Corps (USMC). The design features three 7,500 shp(5,590 kW) engines, new composite rotor blades, and a wider aircraft cabin than previous CH-53 variants. It will be the largest and heaviest helicopter in the U.S. military.

U.S., Australia delay plans to send more Marines Down Under
Matthew L. Schehl, Marine Corps Times 1:12 p.m. EDT June 10, 2016


The U.S. still plans to send 2,500 Marines to Australia each year — but that large of a rotation won’t happen until at least 2020.

American and Australian officials are still slogging through the details of sending a full Marine air-ground task force Down Under some five years after President Obama announced plans to send 2,500 Marines there annually starting in 2016.

The task force, known as Marine Rotational Force-Darwin, spends about six months of each year deployed to Australia's Northern Territory. The Marines began deploying there soon after the Obama administration announced its Pacific pivot, a policy that reoriented resources after the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to counter China's rise.

Australian defense officials declined to say exactly why the timeline was pushed back, but confirmed they’re working with the U.S. to bring a full MAGTF through Darwin "by around 2020."

"Each year the U.S. and Australia work closely together to determine the exact size and composition of each rotation in addition to the activities that the Marine Rotational Force-Darwin will undertake during their six-month deployment to the region," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.


There are currently 1,250 Marines in Australia. The rotations have expanded to a battalion landing team since the first company-size deployment — about 200 Marines — in April 2012.

Since then, there have been about six rounds of negotiations between the countries as officials hammer out how costs should be shared and facilities used, said Andrew Shearer, a former Australian national security adviser who's now with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

“What seems to have happened is basically those negotiations have bogged down pretty badly,” he said. “I think that’s quite unfortunate.”

While another 1,250 more Marines in Australia aren't likely to tip the strategic balance in the western Pacific, Shearer said delaying the plan sends the wrong signal at a time when tensions are growing in the South China Sea.

Sharing the costs

The U.S. and Australian have invested millions to boost the size of the Marine rotations — but both militaries are facing budget crunches, and that has created some friction.

As the Marine Corps ramps up rotations to Japan, Australia and eventually Guam, the service has allocated billions of dollars to fund those moves. And the Aussies spent $11 million upgrading army and air force bases to accommodate more U.S. Marines in the Northern Territory.

But Shearer said the two countries need to focus on the long-term benefits to the agreement instead of getting bogged down in budget negotiations.

“From my understanding, the difference between the two sides is a few tens of millions of dollars annually,” he said. “Both sides need to get back to focusing on the big picture ... rather than this sort of unseemly haggling.”

The agreement benefits both sides, he said. Rotating more Marines through Australia is just one piece of the Marine Corps' plans to base roughly 15 percent of its force in Hawaii and beyond in coming years. And the Aussies are in the process of standing up their first-ever marine amphibious force, according to a white paper released this spring that completely revamped Australia's defense strategy.

Having Marines and Australian soldiers training together closely will be vital to that strategy's success, Shearer said.

“Australia will operate at extended ranges and be able to shape and influence out into maritime Southeast Asia,” he said. “What’s laid out in the white paper is really the biggest modernization of the Royal Australian Navy since the Second World War.”

That strategy calls for a greater emphasis on a more aggressive maritime strategy. Its marine amphibious force will be built around two new Canberra-class landing helicopter dock assault ships. The plan also includes a $90 billion investment in shipbuilding over the next decade.

The 1,250 Marines currently deployed to Australia will train with local soldiers through October. Most are housed at the Australian army's Robertson Barracks, with some staying at the nearby Royal Australian Air Force Base Darwin.

Most of this year’s rotation are from 1st Battalion, 1st Marines out of Camp Pendleton, California. They have an aggressive training schedule that will include several bilateral exercises.

US go home: Okinawa dans la rue pour demander le départ de 47 000 soldats américains





Des milliers de personnes manifestent ce dimanche sur l'île japonaise d'Okinawa contre la présence de 47 000 soldats américains, soit plus de la moitié du contingent US stationné dans l'ensemble de l'archipel nippon.

Deux faits divers récents (meurtre et accident sous l'emprise de l'alcool) respectivement imputés à un employé et un marin de l'armée américaine, ont intensifié l'opposition à la présence sur l'île méridionale. Et obligé le Pentagone à imposer des mesures restrictives à ses personnels (pas de sorties, pas d'alcool).

La manifestation vise aussi à stopper le projet de déplacement, dans une baie de l'île, d'installations militaires américaines actuellement situées en plein centre urbain. Etablie depuis des décennies dans la ville de Ginowan, la base aérienne de Futenma doit être transférée vers une région littorale moins peuplée, à Henoko, mais les autorités d'Okinawa réclament sa disparition pure et simple de leur région.

Prototypes For Marine Corps' New Amphibious Combat Vehicle Coming Together
Jen Judson, Defense News 9:36 a.m. EDT June 20, 2016




PARIS — BAE Systems is already in the process of assembling its first six of 16 prototype Amphibious Combat Vehicles for the US Marine Corps, and SAIC plans to begin integration work on its vehicles this summer.

The Marine Corps awarded contracts to both companies worth a little over $100 million each in November last year to build engineering and manufacturing development vehicles for its next-generation ACVs, which will ferry troops ashore and into battle.

BAE Systems and SAIC are expected to build 16 eight-wheeled vehicles over 2016 to be tested by the service in 2017. The Marine Corps will then pick a winner in 2018 to deliver 204 vehicles by 2020.

The total value of the contract with all options exercised is expected to amount to about $1.2 billion.

Des F-18 de récupération pour l'US Marine Corps



La flotte de F/A-18 Hornet des Marines est touchée par des problèmes de disponibilité © US Marine Corps



Les temps sont durs aux Etats-Unis aussi. Le corps de Marines va récupérer 23 chasseurs F/A-18 Hornet initialement retirés du service ainsi que sept appareils cédés par l'US Navy, afin de faire face aux problèmes de disponibilité de sa flotte de chasseurs.

Le F/A-18 Hornet doit être remplacé au sein des Marines par le Joint Strike Fighter. Mais bien que celui-ci ait été déclaré opérationnel en 2015 (IOC : capacité opérationnelle initiale), il tarde a arrivé en nombre. En attendant, la flotte de F/A-18 des Marines vieillit donc et se retrouve frappée par des problèmes de disponibilité. Contrairement à l'US Navy, les Marines ont tout misé sur le F-35B et ont refusé d'acquérir le F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. Le F-35B remplacera également l'AV-8B Harrier et pourra comme son prédécesseur opérer depuis les bâtiments amphibies de l'US Navy.

Selon le corps des Marines, les 30 appareils récupérés vont être portés au standard F/A-18C. 18 mois de travaux seront nécessaire pour chaque appareil.

US Marine Corps pull F/A-18 Hornet aircraft from «boneyard»
Jun 30, 2016



F/A-18 at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona (c) virtualaerodrome.com
Marine Corps aviation, struggling to meet its operational and training missions with a shrinking fleet of aged F/A-18 Hornets, is pushing a program to recover and update 30 out-of-service F/A-18Cs in an effort to remain combat ready until the new F-35B is fielded in numbers. That reported by usni.org.

The Marines have contracted with Boeing to refurbish and modernize the single-seat Hornets to a “C-plus” standard with new avionics and an updated AN/APG-65 radar. The Boeing work also will extend the service life of the fighters from 6,000 hours to 8,000 hours.

Twenty-three of the Hornets to be updated are being recovered from the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration facility, commonly known as the “boneyard,” at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. Most are F/A-18Cs that have not reached their original flight hour limits. The other seven Hornets are being transferred from the Navy, which is replacing its legacy Hornets with the new and more capable Super Hornets, Marine Corps spokeswoman Capt. Sarah Burns told USNI News.

“We are very focused on our current readiness, and at the moment we don’t have enough Hornets for combat, flight instruction and day-to-day training,” Burns said in an email.
“We purposely housed the aircraft in the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group over the course of a decade with the intent to store, maintain and upgrade them for today’s use. This is one of the many levers the Navy-Marine Corps team is using to address USMC F/A-18 flight line short fall and readiness issues.”

Boeing has refurbished two of a planned 23 F/A Hornets stored at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base near Tucson – known as “the boneyard” – and will soon finish more, according to WarIsBoring.com. The planes will be modified to a current “C+” standard under a contract with Boeing and the USMC signed in 2014.

It’s not the first time the military has brought back decommissioned planes from the graveyard. The Marines pulled and restored several retired heavy-lift helicopters during the height of the Iraq War to help with a shortfall in the fleet as a result of heavy usage and crashes.

The F-35 was supposed to be ready for front-line service in 2006. The Marine Corps reasoned that the Super Hornets were too pricey to serve as a bridge to the new planes, and chose to continue to operate their current fleets.

As the F/A Hornets dwindled through attrition, and quality-control issues delayed the F-35 from coming off the assembly, the Corps was caught short.

Lt. Gen. Jon Davis, the USMC deputy commandant for aviation, told Senate lawmakers that just 32 percent of the Corps’ Hornet fighters were operational. The branch needs at least 58 percent of the F/A-18s to be flight ready so that there are enough planes for combat, flight instruction and day-to-day training.

Officials for the USMC did not immediately return requests for comment but in their most recent annual report on aviation capabilities, Davis said, “I am concerned with our current readiness rates, both in equipment and personnel.”

Some experts say bringing back the F/A-18 jets may not be much of an issue.
