Orca,

The Old Flying Machine Co have Typhoon FGR and Tornado GR4 in their collection, for those who are too young to remember. They are kept flying to remind us of the days of yore when such...

Navaleye,

I suspect you are spot on, as is Glojo.

Nothing is all-aspect stealth, not even a RAM-coated rugby ball, it is about 'how much stealth do I need'. The combat edge that sufficient...

WH,



Well you see that assumption is the exact problem; it's not the chiefs I refer to. No, not at all because you don't need to be at the top to have a savvy political mind, an impressive...

Gents,

I suggest you PM each other if you insist on discussing US policy on F-22 and the like. One post on Elephants vs Donkeys is of curious interest; 3 or more is deadly boring. Sevenstroke,...

Airsound,

The pylons are not stealthy but the gun pod is, allegedly. Look in any book or manual concerning stealth and LO principles and the first rule is to avoid 90deg angles. The pylons don't...

Orca,

We both know that the work that was done for 2010 was commendable and accurate but amounted to nothing because it 'wasn't the right answer'. If we've anything to learn from that cost-cutting...

So JFH never produced OC for the period 2000-2010 then? Ah, does that mean UK has been without a capable carrier force since the 90s and arguably earlier?

With no real QE capability coming to the...

WW,

I agree with you that in a perfect world, where we had money for conventional carrier platforms in numbers, the E-2D would be a perfect AEW asset. The British reality now is that we can't put...
