    Actually since I posted that, others have indicated on another forum that rolling stops are used for short field strips, just not on ships. Apparently it is practiced for emergencies where the...

    As far as I know the Harrier can't do a rolling stop, or at least I've never heard of it being a normal practice for any operator. The only advantage of this technique is bring back weight, and in...

    I get that it allows the 4th crew member, I just don't see how they could reduce the size of the turret if the also retain that 4th crew member.

    Isn't this a completely different tank? This seems like the F-18E/F sleigh of hand where 'its just an upgrade' is used to justify a budget of what is effectively a completely new platform.

    1). Just because no spent the money to integrate Harpoon into the mk41. It would be techinically trivial but rather pointless - the USN never really saw surface action as a serious purpose for its...

    Russia to supply Syria with S300's. I don't see how that doesn't provoke an IAF strike on any operational S300 site. This could easily become a situation of mutual escalation without an off ramp if...

    IMO, it has less to do with credibility and more to do with the incredible pay out if any of these ideas panned out. Kinda like the CIA and remote viewing and their other psi warfare studies:...

    According to wiki they have eight trainer F-16 a/c. Add in those planes and the buy would be almost one for one replacement.

    Clearly the system can generate bearings of an active source at long range. What is interesting is that it credits it with being able to establish range in one of two conditions: close range or...

    So you are confident that the antennas on the wings and stabilizers function as low power emitters? I suspect minimal power would be required for most forms of deceptive jamming considering how...

    Somewhat off topic question: is the F-35's active ECM system limited to the AGP-81 only? that would have directional and frequency limits. I'm aware the ASQ-239 covers 360 degrees and most of the...

    Turkey doesn't even share a border with Russia. It is hardly pivotal as it was during the cold war. It has a much bigger role to play in Mid East politics, but in that arena it is largely...

    As far as I'm concerned, Russia is allowed to be next NATO's border (and is in several places). The problem is when they cross that border. Trying to fight them in Georgia is a lost cause; the...

    That does seem overly ambitious. There are much more reasonable and inexpensive ways to engage satellites certainly. The US already has satellites that move across the GEO orbital plane inspecting...

    Scud's had very low accuracy. They were largely terror weapons when used with conventional warheads (google 'war of the cities'). I think their burnout speed was about Mach 10, but at a range of only...
