Re: Type 26 Frigate (City Class) (RN) [News Only]

Not sure if t26 derivatives are going to be basis of t45 replacement sometime but I think t45 replacement will go like the other new destroyers and be larger at 170 MTR ISH like the new and up and coming kids on the block so not sure if t26 could be modified so ?

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'...

I think it's all a case of us grasping at straws thinking the us might go for the t26 derivative or us cancel t31 and getting more t26 instead folks ,I can't put anybody down for wishing it tho
