There is already talk of a backlash from The Hill. Questions being asked about a stopgap -47 order to buy-out the immediate issues with the -53K and give Sikorsky time to get it right. There’s also...

The US Army has not successfully developed a new rotorcraft since the AH-64. Lakota was, effectively, COTS, and since the cancellation of the RAH-66 all the Army have done is upgrade legacy aircraft...

Gums,
I think you're referring to "Luneburg Lenses" which are fitted to the F22 and F35. In effect, they increase the RCS by a factor of several hundred IIRC. Useful for ATC prime radar returns...

KenV,
Couple of points if I may. In my experience, cognitive failure is likely exactly when overloaded and capacity sapped - we revert to the familiar (how many times have I used, for example, the...

KenV,
I would humbly suggest that a total of 43 hours on type in 4 years was the "part of the Shoreham tragedy (that) was caused by a lack of time/experience in type by the pilot?". Less than half...

Jerry,
I fail to see the rationale for GR4s going to Boscombe unless there a very specific reason for a trial (possibly weapons/sensor related); AFAIK it could be operated under a QARL with BAES...

BVRAAM,
The "sense" is that unless those aircraft are replaced, there will be a significant capability gap. Only a fraction of the 100/736 task is DACT; much of it is in providing specialist...

BVRAAM,

ASDOT was a lot more than just DACT; EW training for the RAF/RN and a lot of other facilities were "rolled up" to replace legacy capabilities such as 100 Sqn, 736 NAS and the Cobham Falcon 20s. ...

The issue with F-22 isn't the jigs or tooling, it's the avionics and mission systems. They are all based on obsolete 1980s technologies and architectures which are difficult to acquire and support. ...

The RN doesn’t have a COD. The usual nonsense trotted out is that embarked CH47 or Merlin will do the MITL role. Not really a player with a decent payload out to representative Blue Water Ops ranges....
