    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?

    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

    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."

    Colonization Of The Solar System
