They called it the Su-19...

 

Su-19 is FIRST OFFICIAL name of Su-17M3, be cause Su-17M3 has more differents from Su-17 in fuselage construction, but it's name not accept in AF, and Su-17M3 was accepted.

musli was right, but real plane, who has Su-19 name sometimes is Su-17M3... It's like "Sapfire-22" history: Most Mig-21 was two variant of radar:

1) RP-21 (early variant is RP-9-21) "CD30-T" family - (CD-30T, CD-30TP, R-1L, R-2L);

2) RP-22 "Sapfire-21" family - RP-22S, RP-22SM - "Sapfire-21M" ect.

 

Sapfire-22 NEVER EXIST!

Ok here goes one; Why were some american fighter planes not given a "F" designation?

You speak about before 1948 US Army AF planes?, like P-51 (Pursuer-51) or not?

Actually lindr2, there was another, better known aircraft, which he designed.

The Pulqui didn't make such a great name for itself. Better luck!

Hahaha, Silverbolt.

It is correct. The Pulqui and Pulqui II were also

Tank designs, but not well known to the public.

The HAL Marut however is, and is battle proven against

Pakistan in several skirmishes between '63 and '85.

So, it is yours Silverbolt. Take it away!!!

PS: I know that book, that Gunston guy made a lot of funny

stuff up in his "career".

Okay,

 

 

 

249 F-16A / C U.S. were sent to the Gulf war

. Among the F-16C, were several of the block 40,

called Night Falcon, could carry out attacks because

night with the lantrin and LGBs in precise attacks. However

for some reason, they could not use that kind of

weapon / sensor.

 

question.

 

1) How many F-16 in war and could use this apparatus

LGBs attack using?

 

2) Why the F-16 that had this ability rarely

lantrin could use in war?

Okay,

 

well, any one?

 

72 F-16 Could carry this pod, but all of those were Assigned to be used in F-15E.

 

i'll send another....

 

Aim-9E is a late sidewinder than Aim-9D, but why the D version had a superior performance than E? and Why USAF didn't used the D version?

If you're referring to the USAAF fighters, especially the WWII veterans like the P-38, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, etc they were given the designation 'P' which stands for 'Pursuit'.

 

(the Navy fighters had the 'F' designation though.. eg. F4F, F6F, F4U, F9f etc)

 

All American fighter planes recieved the 'F' for 'Fighter' designation after WWII, when the USAAF became the USAF...
