A few thoughts from my experience with anthropometric requirements on F-35, which might be of interest:

The JSF programme was the first (as far as I know) to have the '97%' requirement, and...

ORAC,

I wouldn’t think so, sir .....I understand it may well be a substantial F-35B element. No details on any other aircraft included in this cross-decking effort, as far as I know yet.

ORAC,

Actually, we are capable of cross decking. I understand that the 3rd US Marine Air Wing are going to embark in HMS Queen Elizabeth. That will be the most significant piece of US/UK 'cross...

Guys,

The reasons for this sad and wholly avoidable episode aren't a 'mystery'. The way to fix this didn't require 'guts', and it didn't need anyone to 'sign it off'. Perhaps I can help explain.

Boss, It's kind of you to say that, but I was way off base and JTO was right - I should have checked more and typed less. My bad, and I'm sincerely sorry.

Best Regards as ever to everybody

JTO,

I think you are right and I was wrong. My sincere and unreserved apologies. This getting old is a right swine. By the way, my abbreviation was for 'old farts', not 'old f***wits' - that's not...

JTO,

Good question, well put. I suppose the reasons that I thought that the GR3s were declared and required to operate from ships were:

1. The fact that they had been running detachments to...

Guys,

Following up another aspect raised in this thread, that of the issues arising when the GR3s arrived on Hermes - which wasn't until 18th May, by which time quite a bit of stuff had gone on.

Just a brief post:

Note the spin on this announcement. The Vigilants are, apparently, 'former MOD gliders'. Actually, they are 'former RAF gliders'. The words 'Royal Air Force' don't appear...

Sorry, I think I could helpfully respond here:

ORAC,

Breaking my 'go quiet' rule only to say thank you. Yes, you are quite right, the F-35C is really a lot slower to go supersonic and it does burn fuel - bigger wings and tails will do that....

Happy to help explain here.

The F-35B's powered lift system has two 'propulsors'. One is the main engine in the rear of the aircraft - it delivers thrust downwards via a swivelling...

Marcantilan,


I may be able to help. From my fading memory, a 'Ripple 3' meant three lines on the flypro, each filled by an aircraft. Depending on the range at which the ASW screen was required...

Unmanned,

Thanks for coming back. Disagreements are excellent, as they promote discussion, and I do think that the MQ-25 team are nearly there. As a somewhat gnarly old engineer, I just know that...
