  1. Get some help you creep.
  2. You didn't call me weak and tell me to come to Chicago.I have all your messages Man your mentally messed up Seek help for love of god Unstable Don't know what your talking about....
  3. Never said that. Delusional?
  4. Right back at you. Reported.
  5. Please learn some respect Look at post 8. Unbelievable.
  6. IFF has evolved since Vietnam. This capability is built into the F-35. BvR will not be an issue in a future conflict.
  7. Kinetic. Mostly agree. You make some great points. I think that the F-35 naysayers will be proven wrong in a few years. Once the bugs are ironed out, I think we will all be impressed with the F-35
  8. Thanks Swedge. Finally someone gave the correct response. This is exactly the point. Dogfighting is a thing of the past. The airspace will have been cleared before the F 35s even get there. Russkie Su-35s will be just as dead, despite their dazzling maneuverability. Which incidentally looks like a very plausable scenario with tensions with the Russians on the rise. Thank god we did not cave to naiveté that there would never be a conflict with Russia or China and kept this system alive. Eventually all problems will be solved and the F-35 will be a great weapons system. ALL modern aircraft have development problems. Nature of the beast.
  9. Ok. Sorry. been there as well.
  10. PLEASE. Learn to spell.
  11. Wow. Was looking forward to buying my first TIE defender this weekend...along with the phantom. The D looks pretty cool.
  12. I see you're from the UK, what are you basing your info on?Curious how you'd have responded if he was from the US? Do you think they have a blockade on airplane information over there?Has nothing to do with that. Why the hostility? I mean the UK is also procuring the f-35. Wondering what the public opinion was.Calm down boy. Well, I can't speak for all UKers, but one of the things that piss me off most about the F-35 is that we'll be stuck with a fleet of aircraft whereby we're not even allowed to know how they work or how to maintain them. Instead we just have to take it on faith that the US government haven't installed any backdoors into the software, and never decide to turn on us as they have been known to turn on other allies before now. Even though we don't think the US is going to turn on us in the forseeable future, our government shouldn't be placing us in a situation whereby we're effective at the beck and call of another country. The thing is, we've seen it happen before. TSR-2 was suddenly cancelled and scrapped, as far as I can tell because of pressure from the US to buy from them rather than develop our own knowhow and technology. My understanding is that similar incidents have happened to Canadian and Japanese projects too. For a supposed ally, the US government certainly seems dead set against its allies being able to stand up for themselves :/ Wow....where did this come from? We keep hounding NATO members to spend their required 2% which only UK and Canada do. Sounds like were doing everyone else a favor. We would like nothing more to share the military burden of defending europe.

  15. Just bought an E wing, as this ship is a high cost tech marvel - which got me thinking about our F-35. I hope it turns out better than the E-wing did in Star Wars lore..now with having to deal with the Russians.....AGAIN. Since we have a large international community here, curious what you all think of procurement of this, shall I say, "wonder weapon"? Hopefully this will be a somewhat serious discussion...
