Lifting downed F-35 in the South China Sea, US needs advanced equipment

Hsmilitarycom: The Russian military may try to capture the F-35 fighter jet that sank in the South China Sea.

 Data on this subject are voiced by journalists of The Drive publication, noting that today Russia has much more opportunities to be the first to get parts of a fifth-generation combat aircraft than the United States.

It is known that as a result of an unsuccessful landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier, the fighter fell into the water, however, after some time completely sank.

At the moment, a special operation is being conducted at the scene of the incident, but the United States does not have the necessary equipment to perform work on lifting its combat aircraft. 

There is a very serious risk that Russia can get close to the American plane and get its individual parts, including on - board systems.

"Lifting the aircraft is likely to be a top priority for the U.S. Navy, if at all possible. A lost F-35C, especially if it was largely undamaged when it fell into the sea, could easily become intelligence prey for any foreign power with the means to recover it in whole or in part. Russia is particularly well known for having a small but highly capable fleet of special-purpose submarines, as well as specialized surface ships capable of performing deep-sea rescue and underwater espionage missions.",- reports the American edition of "The Drive".

According to the data that the journalists of Avia managed to find out.

Although there are no Russian ships or submarines in the area, according to the British media, during the incident with the F-35 fighter jet in the Mediterranean Sea, Russian submarines moved to the crash site.
