Re: Future UK Combat Aircraft (Project Tempest)

Yes don't know who more up in the tech spec between dassault or bae designs tbh ,both have their own design take I quess but looking at the back end jet of both designs doesn't look that stealthy to me with big engines nozzles out the back even if design of plane is stealthy

Re: Future UK Combat Aircraft (Project Tempest)

Looking like the French changing the nose to accommodate a larger radar than tempest , maybe lessons learned with rafale . someone said looking like a cranked arrow wing which I have no idea what that does or doesn't do for flight compared to tempest ,can't tell if larger or smaller than tempest it'...

Re: Future UK Combat Aircraft (Project Tempest)

Isn't Japan's natural instinct to always go with the Americans , let's face it they have a lot more to offer in high tech technology or definitely a good run over the rest out there. the French/German group or uk/Sweden/ maybe Italian group , think the Americans can just put too good a sweetener the...

Re: Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers - News and Discussion

Yes but I didn't mean Russia do the fix on it cos as stated they don't have the means at the moment otherwise they just fix it and keep it themselves ,so I meant Russia sell it to India for a knock down price and India do the work to fix it
