RE: Brazil Issues Official RFI For F-X2 Fighter

I find it odd that the package includes 28 Slammers and 28 Sidewinders - meaning the request if for 28 BVR and 28 WVR/IR missiles. Are they going to arm their 28 Es with one Slammer under one wing and one <acronym title="Air Namibia">SW</acronym> on the other? And the Fs get no missiles? That is a v...

Whatever they do, they beter do it fast. The FAB is seriously outclassed when it comes to front line fighters (even by some much smaller/poorer neighbors).

You can't say which is best unless you clearly define the scenario objectives and the rules of engagement.

RE: F35 Fighter Even More Expensive Than Planned

RE: How Many Warheads Can An Icbm Carry?

In my mind, the most likely scenarios for use of a nuclear weapon by the US or the UK are (roughly in order) - note that these are all EXTREMELY UNLIKELY and IMPROBABLE SCENARIOS (so spare me from the a"will never happen" flames): 1 - In blue waters against a subarine from a nuclear-capable rogue na...
