Naval Power Bolsters U.S. Airstrikes in Iraq

 

August 8, 2014 by Kris Osborn - defensetech.org

 

Navy assets deployed to the Persian Gulf are responsible for providing the advanced fire power and weaponry used in targeted U.S. military strikes August 8 against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant artillery positions, Pentagon officials told Military​.com.

Two F/A-18 aircraft dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a mobile artillery piece near Irbil, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said in a statement. ISIL was using this artillery to shell Kurdish forces defending Irbil where U.S. personnel are located, he said.

The fighter jets were launched from the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush, which has been forward deployed in the region for months.

Nouveau largage de vivres dans le nord de l'Irak par les Etats-Unis

 

09.08.2014 Romandie.com (ats)

 

L'aviation américaine a procédé à un nouveau parachutage d'aide humanitaire à destination d'Irakiens sous la menace des djihadistes dans le nord de l'Irak, a annoncé le Pentagone. Comme la nuit précédente, de l'eau et des rations militaires ont été larguées dans les montagnes de Sinjar.

 

L'opération a impliqué trois avions de transport C-17 et C-130 ayant décollé de différentes bases. Ils ont été escortés par deux chasseurs F-18 du porte-avions USS George H.W. Bush qui croise dans le Golfe.

 

"A ce jour, en coordination avec le gouvernement irakien, l'aviation américaine a fourni 36'224 rations alimentaires et 6822 gallons d'eau potable (25'000 litres environ)", précise le Pentagone.

 

Des dizaines de milliers de yazidis se sont réfugiés dans les montagnes de Sinjar pour échapper aux islamistes. Cette région est le berceau ancestral des Yazidis, un culte monothéiste vieux de plusieurs millénaires dont les adeptes sont considérés comme des "adorateurs du diable" par les extrémistes sunnites de l'Etat islamique.

 

Un autre type de matériel a été livré aux peshmergas, les forces kurdes, à Erbil, capitale de la région autonome du Kurdistan irakien. Un avion de transport C-130 du gouvernement irakien y a acheminé des munitions pour des petits calibres. D'autres livraisons pourraient suivre pour répondre aux demandes des Kurdes, qui réclament notamment des mortiers et des fusils d'assaut AK-47.

 

Les Etats-Unis s'efforcent de faciliter de futures livraisons, a déclaré un responsable américain. L'administration Obama travaille en coopération avec le gouvernement irakien pour que ces équipements militaires soient livrés "aussi vite que possible", a ajouté ce responsable.

Les USA prolongent le séjour d'un porte-avions en Méditerranée

 

14.03.2014 journal-aviation.com (Reuters)

 

Le Pentagone a annoncé vendredi que le porte-avions USS George H.W. Bush et son groupe de combat aéronaval resteraient déployés quelques jours de plus que prévu en Méditerranée pour mener des exercices et rassurer les alliés des Etats-Unis inquiets de la crise en Ukraine.

 

Le porte-avions va croiser en Méditerranée au moins jusqu'à la fin du week-end, a précisé le porte-parole du Pentagone, le colonel Steven Warren.

 

"C'est quelques jours de plus que prévu. Il y a deux raisons à cela. L'une est de saisir l'opportunité de mener des exercices supplémentaires et l'autre, pour être franc, est de rassurer nos alliés", a-t-il dit.

 

Washington a également envoyé 12 chasseurs F-16 en Pologne pour une "mission d'entraînement", une initiative à laquelle Moscou a répliqué en déployant des Soukhoï en Biélorussie.

 

Des responsables américains ont par ailleurs déclaré que le nouveau pouvoir ukrainien avait sollicité l'aide militaire des Etats-Unis, qui ont accepté de fournir des rations alimentaires mais n'ont pas encore pris de décision concernant la livraison d'armes.

USS George H.W. Bush Completes Historic Underway

May 27, 2013 ASDNews Source : US Navy

 

The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) returned to its homeport of Norfolk after a successful completion of new defense testing during a two-week underway period, May 24.

 

The ship tested a new torpedo self defense system, completed more than 115 launches and landings in assessing a precision landing system, all while launching the first carrier based unmanned aircraft in naval aviation history.

USS George H.W. Bush Completes Historic Underway

The X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstrator (UCAS-D) was launched from the ship in conjuction with the Navy/Northrop Grumman team, May 14. The unmanned aircraft flew over Maryland's Eastern Shore before landing safely at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md.

 

"We saw a small, but significant pixel in the future picture of our Navy as we begin integration of unmanned systems into arguably the most complex warfighting environment that exists today: the flight deck of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier," said Vice Adm. David Buss, commander, Naval Air Forces.

 

The X-47B returned to the ship three days later to conduct its first touch-and-go landing on an aircraft carrier. Capt. Jaime Engdahl, the Unmanned Combat Air Systems program manager, took time to thank the crew during an all-hands call May 23, the night before the ship arrived into port.

 

"I hope all of you are proud of where you're standing," said Engdahl. "It's a changed world now. We launched a few naval aviation firsts and you were all there."

 

USS George H.W. Bush is in port conducting training operations in preparation for the upcoming underway schedule.
