    I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE F-35A SIXTH-GENERATION STEALTH MULTIROLE FIGHTER

    • bob

      Syria and Iran can’t wait either

    • northerntruthseeker .

      Me neither… and when better Su35 and Su37 fighters start blowing this POS out of the sky, we will all see reality!

  • Mehmet Aslanak

    Unit price is now over 100m bucks after design problems & participant withdrawals. Stealth paint wears off at high speeds, so pilots need to repaint with spray can (sarcasm brand cans). Also ancient analog radar technology detects them.

    • northerntruthseeker .

      Absolutely… few people are even talking about how the Yugoslavians were able to easily see “stealth” aircraft during the 1999 war, using both antiquated and advanced Russian made radar systems and blew most of them out of the sky!

      • Z.P.

        Well even ”advanced Russian made radar” was not really”advanced”.
        Well it was “advanced”comparing to very old “antiquated” Brittish radar… that they have also used.
        And they didn’t only “see” F-117A bomber but they have destroyed it (and damaged other F-117) with VERY old Soviet missiles
        S-125 “Pechora” built in 1960
        .

          Do you know the whole story? Did you read the book written by Lt. who´s unit shot down that f-117?

          • Z.P.

            Since WHEN is ONE SIDED story a ”whole story”?
            Just eat you own Western MSM shit who cares what you think !!

            DO NOT TALK TO ME NATO CLOWN !

          • Kananda

            The real story written by real actor. Lt. Zoltán Dani wrote a nice book about this act.

            here is he:

          • Z.P.

            You are pain in the neck
            I know everything about that and more than it is in the book!

          • Kananda

            Then why do you lie?

          • Aleksandar Sikanja

            Me?

          • Aleksandar Sikanja

            Three F117 was shot down and and one B2. The B2 was then only used till Budapest, because they don’t wanna loose more planes. The Serbs saw all planea in the air and Nato have lost over 80 aircraft. Therefore all details ware top secret declared after the war, from both sides.

          • Kananda

            No way, 1st not NATO, americans bomber YG. Second, they lost 1 f-117 and 1 f-1x. The b-2´s were not used.

          • Aleksandar Sikanja

            You know nothing 😂
            NATO use everything they have. My oncle was Officer in Anti air defence. So please inform you on better way.

          • Kananda

            i trust to lt. Zoltán Dani. he shot down that plane. OK?

          • Aleksandar Sikanja

            Ok

        that was not true stealth (from what i learned) hence the straight lines the aircraft employed!
        From what i learned, the Russians were the first to invent stealth but Shelved it for some reason and even published their findings! Computational power was not strong enough in the 1970’s (when the aircraft was built) that could work out optimal curved shaped for deflecting radar waves! Thus the US resorted to using straight lines! Those straight lines were only good for deflecting Some of the radar waves! Therefore the aircraft was still trackable and targetable yet at much less distance!

        Fast forward to today’s stealth, the computers have worked out the curves as well as the manufacturing of materials! The paint is most important as it captures the electrons from the radar that do not get deflected (much like black absorbs the sun’s rays and white reflects it)!
        Those captured radar electrons are transferred somehow like conduction in copper to a central part of the aircraft as heat and then deployed via the aircrafts exhaust! The heat created at this altitude creates moisture and therefore tiny holes in the wings release the moisture decreasing the aircrafts heat signature.

        Obviously there is a lot more to it than i am saying but apparently its all been worked out! Still detectable to certain degrees but down to golf ball size! Radars need to advance to catch up but perhaps some already have!

        its important to note that Russia invented this tech and dismissed it and released it!
        The US decided to try it! Lets just say they crawled before they walked!
        But look, now Russia, Japan and China are making stealth!
        So something must work!

        Better to be FIRST at perfecting it than last dont u think?

        When u fail, try, try, try again!

        In the end, it could mean the difference between you being a slave or being free!
        Thats what war does!

      Hey buddy… since you know about aircraft pricing, can u do me a favour and tell me why the SU-57 is half the price of the SU-35?
      Cheers!

      Someone said the SU-57 became a DUD and thus lost half its value! The price tag makes no sense other than perhaps it did become a dud! Any explanations?

        double surface, half price.

        • Justin

          What?
          They are almost the same size!
          One has Stealth paint, stealth design, more advanced radar!
          The only similarities are the supercruise engines!

          Explain it better!
          Lets be honest, u cant!
          Something is wrong!
          u know it!

          Lemon exposed!

            it was a joke :D

    The Su57 and Su35 pilots would be licking their chops at a conflict encounter against the Hangar-bum F35

    Any western propaganda suckers out there that thinks the Hangar-bum is invisible give your head a shake, I can see it on my car radio tuned into a 2nd division football match on a rainy night with a welding rod for an aerial.
    You really believe the Russians and Chinese can’t see it?

    That said the F35 will actually be invisible in the air once the Su35 or Su57 rams a missile up its arse, you will still be able to see it spread all over the ground though.

  • Peter Jennings

    It’s good that this aircraft has a turbofan. In a conflict, it could get quite smelly in the cockpit if the pilot happens across a Su57.
