[quote="MOOZALENDO"]@mchoraji, cycoh d, Risasi,
Much appreciated. I can empathize with the ace airmen who performed very well under the circumstances but fell afoul of the system. I once found myself blamed for something stupid others had done which brought me great losses; tragedy was that however much I protested my innocence, the accuser had a bigger say and nobody was listening to me. Yeah, can drive one crazy! Good thing though is that in many cases as a professional, you pick up the pieces and thrive in something else.
[quote="mchoraji"][quote="MOOZALENDO"]

I have a friend who was affected too was on leave and when the incident took place and all the uniforms asked to report to the nearest police station made the "mistake" of reporting wearing his boots. Was immediately arrested and incarcerated for long in Kamiti and Naivasha b4 being set free but losing his job and all his dues. I gather they have been following up with gava for their benefits and honourable discharge. I hope the new gava deals with this issue

Migingo, Quela-drones, et al

Post  Guest on Wed Feb 20 2013, 11:06

@ole Sidai - aiseei bana! Hawa wajamaa kweli ni wa-nooma. Sisi bado hatujamake kabisa kufly hizi ma-4th Gen birds na tayari huwaijaza anga na hivi vyombo gushi bila pilot! You wonder if one day we shall ever catch up unless by some crazy fluke they mutually destroy themselves! Asiii nakuu!

Migingo - the primary concept of the EAC is an expansion of National Boundaries across Colonial limits without resort to War and on mutually beneficial consequences to Nations in the EAC. A gradual loss of colonial territorial integrity in negotiated incremental controlled pace. That I eat Nyaga Choma Kachumbari Ugali Mukimo Mursik in Rubavu / DRC without the restrictions of national boundaries is enough motivation for me to also cede some of my exclusive territorial rights to Kenya. In this Matrix, where do those beating war drums with Uganda place Migingo? One acre of land. In contrast with a virtual Ugandan territorial reach extending to Mombasa and a Kenyan seemless virtual territory extending to Kinshasa? Two years ago I posted that Kenya will NEVER wage WAR over as inconsequential and un-justifiably unbalanced issue as Migingo - no matter who is C-in-C. Hiyo tuyasahao kabsa kabsa! Not one KDF or UPDF soldier is justufiable sacrifice over Migingo.

UNSC - OLN Bill payments. In addition to other clarification earlier proffered, there is the inherent institutional suspicion at the UN of bureaucratic gerrymandering of the Kenya claims (by UN officials, mind you) for reimbursement. Sooner rather than later, this processed and paid - Sammy and Cousins wiLl not kill this AMISOM matrix which successfully deals with their critical National Security concerns way beyond their Boundaries and without their direct participation. ECOWAS is dragging its feet in deploying AFRIMAS because of growing scepticism of later financial support from the UNSC.

Those are beauties spartan.russian inventors are up there with the best.I also came across the SU-47 which is an experimental supersonic fighter jet & in some photos has the wings facing the front.from the little physics i did, thought that design for the wings would create a big resistance from the air as the plane moves forward but there must be a way they are overcoming it.

Yes, apparently they can. Those pics are of the Brazilian airforce F-5EM's.
On many websites this Brazilian pic accompanies stories of KDF operations north of our border

That would be the F-20, originally designed as the F-5G by the same company. The other comparable plane is the Mirage-2000.



The most noticeable difference is the single more powerful engine instead of two for the F-5. I hear the F-20 lost out because the US Government decided to have more F-16s which had taken the export market by storm then. Why bro? Fear of the unknown?

More problems with the F-35A, this time round its not mechanical. word is the bird can't perform the principle task which it was designed to perform.

China clinches Sukhoi deal with Russia

From where I am sitting, the F-50 is a South Korean plane. Granted, it has an American engine (General Electric F404 turbofan), but that engine is for F-18s and similar frames. I still posit that F-20 was the plane just after the F-5 series, ama?

People who clam to be in the know are saying that the F-50 program was just a proposal which the South Korean AF top brass did't seem to keen on.

The Pugachev's Cobra I would love to do that some day but for now I will dream on. The Russians are using the SU-27 design to great effect adding one or two things here and there to improve maneuverability and battle efficiency like the Canard wings just behind the nose, titanium alloy Airframe and the main wing configuration even the tandem sitting position common on the Hind.

I was posting as aircrafts influenced by the F-5. The F-20 is the only true descendant of the F-5. The others mentioned emitted designs or characteristics or simplicities of the tiger say the manufactures. The F-50 or F-5 zero Very Happy as pronounced by the in circle was a design to replace the Koreas F-5 and fill in the gap as a cost effective F-16 (which is the preferred F-5 replacement) for ROKAF.

Ya machines are catching up fast, peep into a living room see items like PlayStation with Advance air combat sorties CDs let alone militarily built dog fighting simulators you get the sense of how fast machines are narrowing the gap. All in all they will always be a man if not boy in the loop. A pleasing encouragement, life wouldn’t be wasted when we “kill each other” in future modern combat 30 years today.

This is how i see it. The Air Force has finally settled on a warplane to replace or compliment the F-5's and they are using this article to soften the hearts of the mandarins that write up the budget. The easiest way to get something is to appeal to someones sense of self preservation/self profit and here, they hit it spot on.

6. K-36D-3.5 – ejecting chair
7. BTsVM-90/BTsVM-486-2 – onboard computer
8. BKTsO Digital signal processor
9. L-150NU – passive guiding missiles station
10. SVR video recording system, KARAT-B whole recording system
11. BINS-SP navigation system with GPS
12. A-053 radio-altmeter
13. MS-2 voice warning system

The weapon:
1. RVV-AE, R-73E, R-27R1/

The rise and rise of the russian sukhoi fighter jet

Post  countersniper on Sun Apr 21 2013, 11:58

The other day i was watching a discovery channel documentary on the history of US fighter planes and the selection of the F15 as the primmary strike plane for the USA airforce in the late seventies and early eighties.
the narator said that during live dog fIghting testing and battle simulation TWO F5 used as aggrressor planes were able to bring down a lone F15.
the performance of the F5 IS SO GOOD THAT TO DATE the americans still keep hundreds of them in their inventory as one of the main fighter trainer aircraft.

MEANWHILE the AUSTRALIANS are very worried about the massive influx of the SUKHOIS in the asia pacific theatre.
here isa good read WHY.
it seems the sukhois are vastly more superior than WHAT the australians are currently deploying.
