Re: Lockheed reveals new LMXT refueling tanker

Quick question; what was the last Lockheed aircraft for the USAF that came in on time/cost/met performance goals within 5 years of IOC. The F-104 (not really in USAF service)? C-130, U-2? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lockheed_aircraft Thats difficult to do regardless of the company. I thin...

I'm not trying to get an answer that I want, I'm just trying to get an answer period. I actually didn...

Re: Brazil Gripen E News and Discussion Thread

This fascination with a niche fighter that won't sell 200 copies is strange.. It's a bit strange that you find it strange that people on a Gripen E news and Discussion thread, are doing discussions about the Gripen E. I for one learned a lot in the few post that I read here. If the Gripen isn't you...

Re: Philippines military plane crashes with at least 85 on board

They're requesting a budget of almost $6 billion for 2022, hopefully it gets approved as the Philippines has a lot of catching up to do to be on par with neighbors.

Re: Brazil Gripen E News and Discussion Thread

Supercruise is reasonably useless, F-22 standard profile only has small uses of supercruise. Not at all, watch this interview with F-22 pilot Lt. Col. Terry Scott as he explains what a world of difference Supercruise has over their intercept tactics. https://youtu.be/AguVV7SH9eY The difference betw...

Re: Brazil Gripen E News and Discussion Thread

Why are you getting caught up with supercruise definition. Faster than M1 without afterburner is all it is, no one cares how you get past M1, sustaining is all that matters.. I think all supercruising aircraft (Concorde included) go through Mach 1 with AB and simply maintain supersonic in dry thrus...

Re: Brazil Gripen E News and Discussion Thread

I see, Supercruise is actually not fixed capability. A lot of the teen series fighters have some supercruise claims at certain conditions. For example in this interview a former Hornet pilot says that in certain conditions the A model bug can do it. https://youtu.be/y-a-CL8ClX8 I also personally kno...

Re: Brazil Gripen E News and Discussion Thread

Yes for Lockheed, Supercruise requirement for the ATF program is at least Mach 1.5, but since then a lot of aircraft have claimed a lower level of Supercruise, I think Typhoon says Mach 1.4, Rafale says Mach 1.3, Gripen Demo aircraft (modified Gripen D) claimed Mach 1.2 back in 2009. I was wondering...

Re: Brazil Gripen E News and Discussion Thread

Hello all, may I ask if there are more details regarding the Gripen E's supercruise capability. So far the most concrete evidence of this was when the demo aircraft achieved Mach 1.2 in 2009, but if I'm not mistaken, that was a Gripen D, I believe the E is a bit more different. Thank you
