    A technician services the APG-63v3 AESA radar on an F-15C.
     
    AESA radars are an enormous advantage in the ongoing electronics warfare arms race.  AESA radars do not need to physically move; the beam is steered electronically using constructive and destructive interference between the transmit and receive modules.  AESA sets can split their transmission power into multiple beams in order to scan the volume of sky in front of them more rapidly.  Additionally, they can break up their signals' strength along multiple frequencies in random and unpredictable ways.  This later capability makes them much less likely to disclose the location of the aircraft with the AESA radar and much harder to jam, even using the latest DRFM jammers.
     
    AESA retrofits for the F-15, F-16, Super Hornet, Rafale and Eurofighter Typhoon also exist.  In addition, the latest versions of J-10 and Flanker have AESA radars.  All fighters with stealth pretensions also possess AESA radars, as without the low probability of intercept tricks that AESA makes possible, the radar is too much of a compromise to stealth.

    "The 14.5mm BS was a tungsten cored API that penetrated 30mm @ 100m, or 25mm @ 500m
    MV was 1000m/s
    The .50 closest to that was M903 SLAP, saboted tungsten core
    34mm @ 500m, and 23mm @ 1,200m.
    MV 1214m/s
    regular API is 25mm @ 100 meters, 18mm @ 500 m"
     
    30mm at 100m vs the correct 40mm at 100m and 25mm at 500m vs the correct 32mm at 500m by Soviet tests? I mean, just a small mixup right?
     
    "I listed the WWII standard US API. not that much worse. 5mm? big whoop.
    And most of the Red Army didn't have those tungsten rounds, but the more common steelcore API"
     
    [Citation needed]
     
    and 15 and 5 are the same number now!
     
    "the difference between sabots and full diameter APCR isn't that great for the sizes we are discussing"
     
    Except for the part where it is of course, and even if it wasn't, perhaps there's a reason APCR/HVAP style rounds were basically rendered completely obsolete by the introduction of APDS in all but "standard" and small caliber firearms or something.
     
    "50 SLAP is +9mm at 500m vs 14.5 BS Tungsten core.
    I wouldn't call that 'pretty great'
    BTW, Chinese DGJ02 'SLAP' is 1250m/s vs 1214m/s for 50 SLAP, and 20mm @1000m vs 23mm @1200m for 50 SLAP
    For whatever reason, the 14.5mm just doesn't perform as well as all that extra ME would suggest."
     
    Yes, the part where DGJ02 had that figure tested against a 60 degree angled plate doesn't factor in at all you fucking idiot, I am rly gud at understanding armor mechanics u guyz! Holy shit is he one of the same types of idiots who thinks the Chieftain had more effective armor then the T-64 too because they can't be bothered to do the most basic research of the topic at hand?
     
     
    "Same 'Anti-Material' role, anyway.
    Like in WWII, ineffective against MBTs, unless you count zapping the TC when the hatch is open.
    But anything lighter in armor, well, still effective against BMPs and the like.
    The real big change is decent optics vs iron sights for long range work."
     
    "Like in WWII, ineffective against MBTs" ...........................................
     
    I fucking hate this guy so much, my god, he legitimately does deserve an entire article explaining what a goddamn dumbass he is.

    On tiger and tiger II the steering wheel makes sense.  It was one of a very few tanks of the era with multiple turning radii, so being able to give analog input would be helpful.  Leo II has continuously variable steering, so again, the wheel makes sense.  M48 had a single turn radius per gear, so as far as the driver was concerned you were going straight, going left or going right.

    A schematic diagram of the internals of the SU-27.
     
    The blended fuselage of the SU-27 is filled with fuel tanks that give it completely stupid fuel capacity; 9,400 kg of fuel can be carried internally.  This is greatly in excess of what most other tactical types can carry; the Rafale has 4,700 kg of internal fuel capacity, 6,700 kg for the super hornet, and 5,900 kg for the strike eagle.  When the SU-27 was first shown to the world at the Paris air show, the display aircraft had flown all the way from Russia without drop tanks or refueling.
     
    Completely filling the internal fuel tanks compromises the SU-27's maneuverability greatly, however, as the fuel adds a great deal of weight and shifts the center of gravity so far forward that it causes some pitch stiffness.  The canards on later flanker variants offset this to some degree.

ISIS was formed from Al-qaida in Iraq and Syria with 11th division of FSA, IIRC. Recently, An-Nusra ordered (via sharia court) to one of Idlib groups to transfer several TOW launchers to them, so part of information in this link is either outdated, or not 100% true.

    T-72B3 have better FCS than early T-90 and, in some areas, T-90A. Protection is somewaht similar, with T-90A having better composite armor on turret (for sure) and on frontal hull (rumored).
