U.S. F-35A jets join the biggest military build-up of forces across Europe since the end of the Cold War


The world`s most deadly — and expensive — warplane is joining the biggest military build-up of forces across Europe since the end of the Cold War to deter Russian aggression, according to The Times.

General Tod Wolters, a top U.S. air force commander, said that the F-35A jet, which is taking part in its first training mission outside the United States, was a ”game changer” for deterrence, The Times reports.

He was speaking as about 1,100 British and French troops, supported by tanks and artillery, began a deployment in Estonia to help to defend NATO`s eastern flank from any attempt by President Putin to test Russia`s shared border with the alliance.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in February announced four robust multinational battle groups would be deployed on the Alliance`s eastern flank in June in response to Russia`s aggressive actions against Ukraine
