@ Olekoima upgrade share 80% communality and familiarity with the host AB and crew  if not the entire AF. that is plus point for upgrading.
 I respect to that upgrade address the missing "gaps" that the plane has.  what I mean is that when a fighter jet is manufactured its done so with the manufacturing country  issue/needs in mind.  so when you upgrade an aircraft you bring it as close as possible to your threat matrix.
example:
the MiG29 excellent dogfighter with range handicap the same applies to the f-16
but that's taken care in the upgrade

the F-35 has an issue on
1. sky rocketing prices
2. locked you can,t upgrade
3. its deemed to be a breed of dying crafts in the western spheres. in the future all aircrafts will be pilotless. therefore its not economical to invest so much on a dying breed.

yf22(f22) vs yf23(f23)

Post  gash on Wed Oct 09 2013, 08:00

i was looking through 5th gen fighter jets esp f22& f23 and through my understanding and comments from test pilots the f23 was more advenced than f22 hence ma calculation is that the americans made a wrong choice and going by service the northrop gruman jets are  used for a long tym eg f5,nighthawk,b2 spirit,a2 and also drones which are their invention.also their tech is unique.Risasi plz offer some insight.
also do u think there are the black aurora projects

Lockheed is the blue eyed boy in Washington at this decade, Grumman's reign is over. The black widow was way better in my limited knowledge but as always, someone has to eat.

the f-22 vs f23 you will never know what actually transpired but I will say the f-22 looks more sexy Very Happy ... anyway "they" say the f-23 wasn,t as stealth as should be. it had a lot of radar clutter what I got to understand something more like the Russian Sukhoi PAK FA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_PAK_FA
lastly  this has happened before between the F-5G aka f-20 vs f16. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_F-20_Tigershark
 
black aurora projects definitely yes. that why the gov,t was called serikali "Seri kali" Very Happy  the sighting of UFO "alien spaceship" vertical lifting and moving at high speed can,t detected  by radar"  back in the 70's  has been confirm as the F-117 and skunk projects http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skunk_Works  so I don,t think they are going to stop any day sooner

The Chinese clone the Apache gunship

Post  Al Bashir on Tue Oct 15 2013, 06:05

The Chinese have apparently made an outright clone of the AH-64, or maybe this was just a stunt. Why did they parade their clone through the streets in broad daylight. The setting of the reveal doesn't add up.

Further to the chopper, someone on another forum commented on the "wrong" looking tail rotor of the Chinese model. The Apache has an "X" the Chinese model has a "+".

KDF F5

Post  Guest on Mon Dec 23 2013, 20:10

I came across this old(taken around 2009) image of a KDF F5 on an aviation forum, and someone had identified the dart and I was wondering if anyone know of what and how its is used? And why also a AAM?

Merry christmass and a Happy new year to everyone

It is a towed target used to train fighter pilots in aerial gunnery. The pilot drops it like an ordinary bomb but it remains tethered to the aircraft by means of a cable/ Any moves the mother makes the target follows so it can be used to simulate maneuvering warplanes. The AAM is for your own protection boss, hujui kitaumana saa ngapi.

F-22s scare off Iranian jets

Post  mogen on Thu Jan 09 2014, 08:17

Happy new year, everyone.  Smile Smile 

Apparently, in March 2013 a U.S. MQ-1 drone came close to being intercepted by an Iranian F-4 Phantom combat plane, but the Iranian aircraft stopped short after a warning by an American pilot. According to the report in The Aviationist the US  Airforce Chief, Gen Mark Welsh, confirmed and described how F-22s scared off Iranian jets from a US drone flying near Iran.  The stunt described below, if indeed it happened as they say, is interesting:

“He [the Raptor pilot] flew under their aircraft [the F-4s] to check out their weapons load without them knowing that he was there, and then pulled up on their left wing and then called them and said ‘you really ought to go home,’”  Gen Welsh said.
According to The Aviationist, the Iranians came within 16 miles of the drone.

Happy new year Mogen, nice of you to show up again.

The Americans are just show offs. To completely fail to detect the raptor how crappy would that F-4 radar be? It may have happened but i don‘t believe it.

In other news, im keenly following the development of the Yun 9 (Y-9). No use threatening Machar when we can barelly air-move an expanded company in a moment‘s notice.

Fighter jets of the future

Post  mogen on Fri Feb 07 2014, 04:00

Jas and others

The Brits have been at it. Apparently they tested Taranis Drone over Womera in the Australia Outback. Womera is also the place where the Brits tested atomic bombs many many decades ago and consequences are still felt today in that area.

About the Taranis Drone:

  • The Taranis drone is a joint project between UK defence and BAE Systems.

  • The test drone cost 185 million pounds ($336.5 million).

  • It is designed to carry a payload of guided bombs and missiles, travel at supersonic speeds, and fly undetected by radar.

  • The UK military says the Taranis will be operable via satellite from anywhere in the world.

  • The first test flight is being hailed as a "major landmark for UK aviation".

Are the Swiss serious? How do you leave your defence to neighbours? What if they were to fail to respond?

My friend, you bomb Switzerland and there is no place on this planet you can hide. Everyone who is anyone has his money in Switzerland. That said, defence of European skies is generaly coordinated by NATO. That is the reason why Italians escorted the plane into Switzerland and the Swiss had no reason to scramble.

Fighter aircraft are guzzlers when it comes to fuel. That said, it's shameful for a country like Switzerland to take their safety for granted in such a brazen manner. I am told our Sukhois consume $400,000 worth of fuel in a single day's training, which is why an SUMK2 flight simulator was commissioned yesterday, complete with the terrain of this region.
