Re: Tempest Fighter Jet Programme News and Discussion Thread

Some really interesting details about the Tempest radar work has been released. Some of it makes sense, some of it is missing some logical analysis but over all seems like Tempest is going in the right direction with regards to sensors.

Given no NGAD is operational, has undergone testing or even potentially past a demonstrator phase it seems absurd to claim it could be designed with lower sust...
