Look, I don't want to come off as mean, but you should probably do some more reading on how airpower works as a system before you start making speculation like this. I'd like to respond to your points with some primer questions that'll hopefully get you thinking about the right things, and to do some more research on them:1，the 12 USAF gen5 squd i counted are non-training/evaluation/testing/europe/ng/reserve units
2, when push come to shove, i think JP government will comply to the use of civilian airports for USAF. or at least i think PLA planner ought to assume that rather than opposite
3, like i said, these new arrival fighter units will be speading out across dozens of civilian airports, there are over 100 runway or taxiway, there is simply no way to kept them closed with BM.
4, i assume the point of ACE (agile combat engagement) is to take care of gen5 logistics within a C17, no?
5, on top of that, ACE enables a F35 to stay on the ground only for minutes instead of hours before taking off again, which makes it much more difficult for PLARF to hit, no? and i think with decoys on the ground, it will be extremely difficult to tell and PLARF could end up wasting a lot of BM before running out on ammo
5, not in anyway over estimate gen5 fighters, just assuming they have a 3-to-1 kill ratio to gen4
1 - Which Sqns are these (name them)? how many PMAI aircraft do they host? What missions do they typically train for, and what kind of supporting facilities do they have to support them?
2/3 - What is it about a military airfield/airbase that is better for flight ops than a civilian airfield? Once an aircraft shows up somewhere, what does it need so as to contribute to the system of airpower? How do aircraft get to an airfield this far away?
4 - What ***exactly*** do you put in those C-17s, where do you land them, how do you get them close enough *to* land them, who unloads them and transfers those supplies to active aircraft, what facilities support those aircraft, etc.?
5 - Lol I'm not even gonna grace this one with a response. This one is just a simple "no, please stop saying stupid things"
