    when I saw the pic first, I did ask, why is the diameter of the engine so important for the exercise............Now that is the tricky part of the question.
    I have to add that the aircraft was deployed to a USAFE base in Germany for an exercise.........
    In the pic they are inspecting the nozzle apparatus that can rotate down to a smaller diameter exhaust. This builds up greater pressure and gives more thrust. But can be a fuel hog.

    Then it REALLY gives thrust when the after burner is lit off inside burning up any unburnt or extra fuel in the chamber.

    After using it for take off (if need be on a short runway) it is only used when iyou want to get out of the way of an incoming REAL fast or catch up to the bad guy real fast as it actually burns a lot of fuel.
