  1. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Quit your whining Netherlander, & do some learnin' instead of butt-lickin'... (FYI, just 'cause you don't comprehend something, don't mean - its - stupid).
  2. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Hah! Seems like maybe you've tried then J_G_T, & now have a bug up your butt - about the R-2800 failing to match the lousy Limey Merlin... ...for speed or distance, due to being.. yeah, such a gas-hog...
  3. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    So its no, then.. Look dude, stop being so "random" & just 'ask your bloody self', as an Englander would put it..
  4. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    You Dutchies... you guys are (almost as) funny as Canucks... ah,wait on... no, you aint... But, to be fair, your complaining about me is hilarious - esp' when J_G_T is doin' his act, full-on.. ( or is he on your 'ignore' list, L.O.L...).
  5. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    No "dumb-as" - Navy designation was F-fighter, USAAF was P-pursuit, both P-38 & P-80 were Army ships..
  6. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Doh! You still bein' a funny-man eh, guy.. Or, is it possible... you really cannot comprehend why a fighter pilot wants a clear-view canopy - both in WW2, & now?
  7. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Yeah, that's a pretty good example right there J_G_T... the P-61 canopy was shit, like the P-38, too... - but at least that F-15 scored a bubble-top..L.O.L...
  8. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    You might be pretty "random" eh, Canuck, but F-15 jocks aint & that's a fact.. He knows a shit canopy when he tries one on... unlike some here...
  9. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    So, talk is cheap, but no one wants to pick up on my wager, eh? Anyhow, so one of these two mid-1940s Lockheed fighters - has a shit cockpit canopy, yeah, you got it, its the P-38... https://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/129/pics/3_1.jpg https://www.worldwarphotos.info/wp-content/gallery/usa/aircraft/p-38-lightning/P-38_Lightning_Maintenance_Burtonwood_England_cockpit.jpg Dunno what's up with this site for posting pix...

    Biff aint no "random dude" eh, Belicosius, so you maybe wanna put some $ on it? ( Not Canuk $ though, natch L.O.L...).
  11. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Ok, so that bit about your preference for "civilized territory" turned out to be so much 'Canadian T-bone' eh, Canuck, ...just a cheap shot..L.O.L...
  12. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Source? Try this: One of the contributors on the Aircraft of WW2 Forum is 'Biff' - a veteran USAF F-15 jockey, used to a clear-view bubble, & he's on the record there - as incredulous as to why the lousy P-38 canopy wasn't replaced - after sitting in its cockpit, too.. But I suppose, you'd rate his view as "hopeless" too, since it contracts yours..
  13. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    Yeah, that's pretty funny, ( & Canadian comics are damn good ) - but just don't try on the ol' 'maple syrup' routine too, huh..
  14. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    OYG boss! Did you just admit that you are squirting milt under pressure from J_G_T, & you are... practically... his.. bitch? Awww... no.. c'mon, say it aint so...
