  1. Libya. That would imply WWIII but the Typhoon and Rafale have operated in Libya and Mali (Rafale only). The F-22 costs too much to operate in combat, in fact it costs too much to operate out of combat which is why the production run was cancelled despite it creating jobs in 44 separate states.
  2. Maybe this is why it was made to be so slow.

  4. Still has TLAMs even though no nuclear ones are still in service. Apparently he had an anxiety attack. One only wonders how anxious he will get during the next 17 years. He was on medication as well LOL, so we should probably be grateful he didn't shoot 30 people as well. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2294158/Casey-Fury-Shipyard-worker-set-submarine-wanted-home-jailed-17-years.html

  8. The question is more what the F-35 has that they haven't.
  9. Thank God he didn't have the launch codes.

  11. Unless the Su-50, J-31 and J-20 turn out to be really unstealthy, the F-35 will spend its entire life getting raped.

  13. Cargo planes and rubber dog-shit Two US warplanes on a routine training mission collided mid-air. One of the planes’ pilot ejected and was rescued while the other aircraft was able to fly back safely, the US military said. According to a coast guard news release Friday, the pilot was rescued after his plane went down approximately 35 miles southeast of Chincoteague, Virginia. The release said the Coast Guard received notification via an automated search and rescue satellite aided tracking distress signal from an ejection seat registered to an Air National Guardplane, Xinhua reported. The Navy’s fleet area control and surveillance Facility in Virginia beach contacted the coast guard and confirmed that two F-16C jets were involved in a mid-air collision. One pilot ejected while the second F-16 flew back to the joint base, Maryland. A coast guard aircrew was then dispatched aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to assist. The Jayhawk crew hoisted the pilot and transferred him to the joint base. US F-16 war planes collide mid-air | idrw.org

  15. F-16 could reach Mach 2.0 with standard pitot intake but I believe it has one of those new diverterless supersonic intakes on later models.
