Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

Then you would've liked the following even better of the type, unfortunately it never went into production. From the ref.
"The He 219 A-7, the next major production version, carried a powerful armament of eight cannon - two 30 mm Rheinmetall MK-108s in the wing roots, two 30 mm Rheinmetall MK-103s and two 20 mm Mauser MK-151/20s in a ventral tray, and two MK-108s in a "Schräge Musik" installation. The A-7/R6, with Junkers Jumo 222A/B engines (2500 hp), was the fastest of the type, attaining 700 kph (435 mph). Despite the aircraft's successes, Erhard Milch, another Heinkel opponent who was chief of aircraft procurement and supply, persuaded the RLM in May 1944 to cancel the whole program. He favored standardization on the multipurpose Junkers Ju 388 and the Focke-Wulf Ta 154 night fighter, which he thought were easier to manufacture but which in fact never saw combat."

(Definitely I agree the "A-10" of its time.


Herr Milch obviously based on his biased attitude towards Heinkel made the wrong choice above. For those that don't know he was the architect of what would be the Luftwaffe prior to WWII to about 1944.

The above article does mention the Me 262 jet.

Ukrainian sugests that HARM antiradar missiles were integrated not only with Mig-29 but also with Su-24. Quite impressive to install necessary equipment in aircraft which were never intended to use western rockets.

There is a report in the September issue of AirForces Monthly that France retired their last Mirage 2000s at the end of June. The current end date for the 2000s is 12/25. Units are 213-216, 773, 902, 903, 969 and 980.

A link would have been nice as the info actually is.......

Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

I'm posting this here because it's showing one of my favorite jets and that like "TR" we're still not afraid to carry a "big stick" with our naval forces. This is the first deployment of an Amphibious Combat Assault ship into the Baltic in over 20 years. The ship is the USS KEARSAGE LHD-3. For this story released yesterday she was working with our NATO partners in an exercise.

I was happy to see that the AV-8B is still active and currently projected to be until sometime between 2030-2035. There are still issues with the F-35 and orders from them are being scaled back to support other service projects from all branches.

In the meantime, enjoy the article and great photos.

I must say I missed the article that said sailors have been redesignated as "soldiers", how'd that happen!?! Then also the media still thinks we have Battleships too!!

Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

Well, I found this next sort of a "refreshing" story. Especially since there hasn't been much news concerning the Ukrainian Air Force for a couple of weeks or so after their ace pilot was shot down and killed.
