  1. Yep and its going to change yet again. The USMC's new force structure is due at the end of the month. They're going to tinker with the B and C mix amounts again. seems like More C's just a matter of how many more
  2. https://mobile.twitter.com/thef35/status/1211712139242684417 FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) delivered the 134th F-35 aircraft for the year today, exceeding the joint government and industry 2019 delivery goal of 131 aircraft. One hundred and thirty-four deliveries represent a 47% increase from 2018 and nearly a 200 percent production increase from 2016. Next year, Lockheed Martin plans to deliver 141 F-35s and is prepared to increase production volume year-over-year to hit peak production in 2023
  3. The first one wasn't exactly realistic either. LOL Maverick could have "broken time" got out, went back in. Crazier stuff has happened, believe me. reality is stranger than fiction because fiction has to make a little sense
  4. Well it was the USSR in the 1980s with the original but there were no names named, and it was a red star, and of course it was borrowing from the Gulf Of sidra incident, which was Libya. The Original wasn't about World War III afterall. but some sparring. The US Navy's sole kill this century is from Syria, and not China. My brother showed me this preview and it did its job well. I watched it and thought "Well, it might not be a CGI suck fest." IF i see it. And thats an IF. my expectations are pretty low. Most of the movies i see today my expectations are near basement level. I just wanted to see some spitfires in Dunkirk. That worked out of course, but that was my level of expectation. "see some spitfires" so "see airplanes" is my level of expectation Top Gun 2. Its kind of sad how cynical all these bad movies have made us. If this was 10 years ago most people would be pretty darn excited about Top Gun 2, and 15 years ago with Tomcats still in play? foggit-about-it! people are incredibly jaded now. We need a star wars movie to pull us out of this dark sad post vietnam film funk...oh wait. Forget i mentioned star wars 😞 or maybe just bring back the Tomcat? 😄
  5. with Camoflauge you never can tell because you can't ask if anyone didn't see anything. following the war you'll notice a lot of transports and other big wing airplane also got camoflauge compared to the big white MAC scheme. A lot of that was evaluation from the very new at the time Red Flag exercises. just like nature if youre not a predator you'd better be able to hide from them. Paint may seemingly make no difference, but its one of the few defenses some attack aircraft have, and its not fool proof but it hopefully makes life just hard enough or distracting or confusing or disorienting (false canopy meme thread!) to the "predator" for the "prey" to escape.
