Des escargots géants envahissent la Floride

Etats-Unis : La péninsule américaine tente de contrer l’invasion rampante d’une espèce particulièrement prolifique. Les animaux menacent l’agriculture.

Il peut atteindre la taille d’une basket, dévore des centaines de types de plantes et peut être dangereux si on le mange… C’est l’escargot géant d’Afrique. Et il envahit une partie de la Floride pour la deuxième fois en 50 ans.

L’éliminer n’est pas simple et prend du temps. Depuis la découverte du gastéropode glouton à Miami en 2011, la Floride a déjà dépensé 11 millions de dollars pour éradiquer la bête.

Malgré ces efforts, l’escargot a tracé sa route visqueuse jusque dans la banlieue sud de Miami mais aussi dans le comté voisin au nord de la ville.

The supersonic, multi-role F-35

The designation of fighter aircraft by “generations” began with the first subsonic jets toward the end of World War II, with each new generation reflecting a major advance in technology and capability. The F-35 Lightning II is referred to as a 5th Generation fighter, combining advanced stealth capabilities with fighter aircraft speed and agility, fully-fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and advanced logistics and sustainment.

The supersonic, multi-role F-35 represents a quantum leap in air dominance capability with enhanced lethality and survivability in hostile, anti-access airspace environments.

The F-35 combines 5th Generation fighter aircraft characteristics — advanced stealth, integrated avionics, sensor fusion and superior logistics support — with the most powerful and comprehensive integrated sensor package of any fighter aircraft in history. The F-35’s advanced stealth allows pilots to penetrate areas without being detected by radars that legacy fighters cannot evade.

The F-35 is designed with the entire battlespace in mind, bringing new flexibility and capability to the United States and its allies. Reliance on any single capability — electronic attack, stealth, etc. — is not sufficient for success and survivability in the future. Missions traditionally performed by specialized aircraft — air-to-air combat, air-to-ground strikes, electronic attack, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance — can now be executed by a squadron of F-35s.
