    Bash the F-35 thred.

    Because an F-35 is going to do ground support from below 1000 feet (not that the A-10 does much of that as well once you hang Hellfires and LGBs from it). What's next, judging an A-10 by its ability to go supersonic?

    Why not?

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    The F-35 is bad because "it doesn't have armour". The F-35 is bad because "it's too heavy". Which one is it then!??!?! FFS

    Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    I heard the fanboys at Defence Forum India claim that, so it must be true.
  7. Dutch MH17 investigation officially blames Russians for the shoot-down: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44252150 On a related note, Bellingcat identified a possible commander of the operation as a Russian GRU officer: https://www.bellingcat.com/news/uk-and-europe/2018/05/25/mh17-russian-gru-commander-orion-identified-oleg-ivannikov/

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    Or in other words, LM didn't want to take chances with someone being able to measure the RCS of the F-35.

    Thermal signature of AFV

    That makes me wonder - how bad for the environment are these smoke charges in Alzoc's post?

    Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    100% genuine conversation that led up to Kinzhal: "Ivan, let's try to make MiG-31 useful in strike role" "Just strap an Iskander on it" "Ivan, you're a genius."

    SpudmanWP of f-16.net uses the powers of FOIA to get a 2017 report on concurrency cost of the F-35: http://www.f-16.net/forum/download/file.php?id=26535

    The SH Ski/Snowboard Thread

    If you're ever in my locale, go to Turracher Hohe or Bad Kleinkirchheim - Bad features a really dope world cup downhill run! What are your skis? I bought these just last week https://shop.atomic.com/en/products/redster-x7-xt-12-aa2718.html
