  1. Not sure if this was posted yet thought Id share. The whole purpose of the stealth is to destroy the enemy without getting into a dogfight. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27qdB1D0s9M

  7. Navy'lize a plane a what if?

    Navy'lize your favorite fighter, strike fighter, bomber or recon plane, try to keep it the laws of physics in mind. I'll start off with these 2 what if Navy A-10s.
  8. RNZAF A-4K Skyhawk tactics

    I knew you'd like!

    For real, you being sarcastic? That was a navy plane to start. Please tell me you knew that.
  10. Navy'lize a plane a what if?

    Well...... This makes sense. I see the fat chick belly for fuel too but, you could hang some fuel tanks from the stubby wings and remove some armor that would allow more room for over sea fuel. This would be more Marine than Navy, but still SHIT HOT. I LIKE THE FATTY GIRL LOADED UP AT THE BOTTOM.
  11. Navy'lize a plane a what if?

    Not much changes from a sea bird to a land bird, just the catapult bar removed like Australia's Hornets. It's more interesting to see a "FAIR FORCE" jet brought up to linebacker status.

    Great guy, great contributer, great stories, I had a few conversations with him via I'm and e-mails. I will tilt a wobbly pop in his honor tonight.

  14. Trump Asks Boeing To Price-Out ‘Comparable’ F-18 Super Hornet To Lockheed’s F-35 http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/22/trump-asks-boeing-to-price-out-comparable-f-18-super-hornet-to-lockheeds-f-35.html
  15. Trump on F-35/F-18

    The point of stealth is not to get into a "knife fight". The Superhornet is not a full stealth plane, but it has stealth components that make it harder to detect on radar compared to other late generation strike fighters. Stealth allows a pilot to slide in and out hopefully undetected. Its a package, the plane and the way its flown. If a pilot goes into hostile area whipping the ponies flashing control surfaces, it doesn't matter what the plane radar will see it eventually.
  16. Boeing T-X

    Boeing's new toy to train fighter pilots. Why not us T-45's it's already good to go. The US needs to use similar airframes for this shit, but this dirty girl has an afterburner!

    Some pics for thought.
  18. Trump on F-35/F-18

    Previous thread from a couple years ago goes in depth to the comparison and capabilities of both aircraft. A lot of great contributions I suggest people read it before adding more replies. I'm am pro F-35 & F/A-18 Superbug. Boeing is also zeroing older Legacy Hornets to F/A-18 C+ to be more online with the war computers and radar of the superbug. It's all about money. http://combatace.com/topic/82860-debate-fa-18-super-hornet-vs-f-35-lightning-ii/?fromsearch=1
  19. Trump on F-35/F-18

    Boeing has already been working on a stealthy mission pod for the F/A-18 Superbug. The super has stealth technology built in to it already, not as much as the F-35. Stealth is a compromise, it doesn't mean the planes are invisible on radar It just means they are just harder to find.
