  1. “We are going to increase our jobs in Fort Worth by 1,800 jobs and when you think about the [F-35] supply chain across 45 states in the U.S. it’s going to be thousands and thousands of jobs,” “I also had the opportunity to give him some ideas on things we think we can do to continue to drive the cost down on the F-35 program, so it was a great meeting,” “We had the opportunity to talk to him about the F-35 program and I certainly share his views that we need to get the best capability to our men and women in uniform and we have to get it at the lowest possible price."

  3. Pretty cool landing, talk about precision!
  4. Shame they put it in something with the aerodynamic properties of a brick though
  5. "BAE Systems has been awarded an initial study contract, valued at £5 million by the UK Ministry of Defence to evaluate the integration of the MBDA Brimstone 2 air-to-ground precision weapon with the Typhoon aircraft. Work is currently underway at Warton, Lancashire to assess the aerodynamic properties of carrying the weapon through a series of wind tunnel tests. Alongside delivering an effective route to Brimstone 2 integration for the UK Royal Air Force (RAF) by 2018, the study is also set to deliver wider benefits through the exploration of a common launcher approach which could also be us
  6. The GR.4s that have been bombing ISIS targets in Iraq have done one or two raids in Syria today/yesterday. Using 3x Paveway IV load-outs from the photos, at least one has actually been dropped in anger. Typhoons were sent to Cyprus from RAF Lossiemouth this morning so will soon join in. Shame they won't paint them desert pink, it would make for much more interesting photos.
  7. I have managed to mess up the front part of the canopy on my kit If anyone has one going spare they would be willing to ship to the UK in exchange for some monies please let me know. The part number is F1 as far as I can remember.
  8. I've still got ATF on disk, I had many hours of fun playing that. Attacking your own wingmen was hilarious on that!
  9. The laws of pleasing aesthetics state that it would have been better if it had swing wings.
  10. Yes, and it is one of the most hideous creations ever to leave the ground :)
  11. I think smooth lines have a lot to do with it. The more sharp angles and mysterious bumps are added to an aircraft the less pleasing it is on the eye I find. The F-22 is probably on the line between looking aesthetically appealing or not for me, the F-35 has crossed that line.
  12. I saw they had new pics of the non-Spey version covers on their Facebook page. Do you reckon Spey ones will be following then?
  13. As the title says really. I know Two Mikes used to but they now seem to be OOP. Ideally I'd like some that are made for the Hasegawa/Revell Germany kit, but I'll take anything at the moment.
  14. Yes, it is a good thing the A-10 has a canopy that can resist small calibre rounds. Not much use if you were hit by the larger calibre 57mm and 37mm Iraqi AAA though.
