    Brought the cursor to the word "Japan" - they write about "Grand Vitara". Nice car, unlike FU-35. Well, more budgetary, anyway winked

      Taki stealth is not stealth with external pendants. Yes, everyone was so scared of numbers, I personally do not see the huge combat potential of f35 (combat radius, arsenal ...) (it is much larger than f 15), this does not mean that I consider the plane to be bad, and any one will knock it off a slingshot. Not by number, but by skill. And about our Air Force fleet, I’m sure that the number of combat aircraft will change for the better, and all information is not publicized.

      Why is there no South Korea in the report? There is so much news that Koreans are buying f-35s, but this is not in the official report. But half of the countries that refused to mass purchase these aircraft are there. What kind of hoax?

        There is an idea to bring down the price. Although bargaining with amers, it’s more expensive for itself.

        Everything is as always much simpler ..
        If you carefully look at the report, then take it away by October 31st. Then there was still no contract.

        Report for October 31. And today is November 25th. Apparently the report was drawn up before the decision was made in South Korea.

          YOU apparently flew this plane, once you make such weighty statements.

          your approach is the approach of a layman who was counting on the pros. but in the end it turned out the other way around.

      The US needs to create something. They print money for this and must show in reports. In the whole adventure, hundreds of thousands of people work with f-35s, and well-paid workers. If this production is covered up, a social explosion is ensured. Therefore, until the very end they will secure all the money in this project. And in the end, the plane will be in large numbers, it may even get rid of childhood diseases. But it will still be systemically limited and will not be a breakthrough in the aircraft industry.
      At the same time, directing all this money to building a space cruiser would be more useful and a breakthrough in technology. The f-35 project is more social than military or scientific.

      Max. speed F-35- (when fully loaded inside the weapon compartment) - 1,6M
      It is believed that the maximum speed of the T-50 will be about 2 Machs. Initially, the goal was to achieve a speed of 2,35M, then this requirement was reduced to 2,1M, then to the current value of 2M. The Su-35S fighter has a maximum speed of 2,25 M. The main reason for reducing the speed requirements for the T-50 is the wider use of composite materials, while the Su-35S has an “intensive use of titanium."

    That's why I was surprised for the cons
    And here the ardent defender F-35 showed up (judging by your comments in other topics)

    By the way. Here is YOUR SAME quote:
    The Australians were offered the F-35, and they wanted the F-22. So they exhibited the 35th as an "iron"

    If the F-35 was a normal plane, I do not think that the Australians would refuse, agree.
    For some reason, they think 4+ is better than the 35th
    As the Australians themselves put it, this is: "a third generation aircraft with elements of the fifth"

    Those. not one I consider it an iron. Yes, even the well-known performance characteristics are understandable.

    Farther.
    My answer was to the phrase:
    "And even a photo of" absolutely no flying iron "
    That is, IMHO, this aerobatics is not a reason for boasting.
    This figure of aerobatics must show and far from the best jet aircraft and the second generation. Therefore, I didn’t understand what this photo is for.

      The Australians wanted the F-22. And in general, I don’t understand your logic, I could just as well say that the F-35 would be bad, there would be no export orders for the purchase of hundreds of these aircraft. And what if I start to recall how refused our equipment?
      If they refused, it doesn’t mean anything. They thought that they didn’t need this plane. Let’s offer them the Su-34, for example, they will refuse, and what, the plane is shit ???

        I used to write about exports, for example, Britain became a hostage to deep integration of the BAE Systems American American military-industrial complex, Italy voluntarily built an assembly plant f-35 in the initial impulse in the hope of the promised profit from the sale of 6000 aircraft. Australia is also tied to subcontract work, but I don’t think much needs to be commented on deliveries to Israel. As we can see, at least three countries cannot leave the project due to economic reasons, planes arriving in Holland will go directly to the warehouse, also for economical reasons. In general, we would be glad to refuse, but either they can no longer, or they will not give.

    What is not clear here? As a fighter, the Raptor interceptor is better than the Lightning, and it is for these reasons that the Australians wanted the Raptor. That is why they "lowered" the Lightning (they say it does not drag, unlike the Raptor).

    Ok then the question. How to determine the degrees of 35?
    "The angle of attack is the angle between the direction of the velocity of the stream oncoming the body and the characteristic longitudinal direction chosen on the body, for example, at the wing of an aircraft this will be the wing chord, for an aircraft - the longitudinal construction axis, for a projectile or rocket - their axis of symmetry"
    The horizon line does not matter to anyone.
    Yes, the operational angle at the attack of the penguin is 50 °, which is not small for an airplane without a shock wave, for comparison, for Su 27 it was organic in the EMDS 30 °.
    The maximum angle at the court the plane remains stable at 73 °

    The question is what is the angle of attack?
    For a "drummer" big is no longer necessary.
