I'm not sure to embed the video from a NBC reporter Sergio Quintana twitter account but it's a short video of a 747 fire bomber.
mobile.twitter.com...

Ever wondered what's it's like to be 'bombed'


Also in that twitter page is a video of a DC10 fire bomber

Scary day on Air Astana 1388 today out of Lisbon. They had a flight control problem, and reported that they were planning to ditch at one point.

I see the sqwark alert come up on my phone and tracked the flight live. I saw the altitude increasing and decreasing and watch what path it was making thinking it was all odd didn't actually know it was in trouble. With the altitude fluctuations I thought flight radar was just playing up

This is only a simulation, but the point is something that has been true for a while now. If two fighters with HOBS missiles and helmet mounted displays end up in a WVR fight, with equal situational awareness, then the most likely outcome is a mutual kill.

Turning at the merge is the great equalizer, because it might not matter if you're in a F-22 or a Mig-29.

If the intent is to have a lop sided advantage of the adversary, then a BVR fighter is needed.

Don't understand why this journalist doesn't get more views. Probably the best, most intelligent defense journalist with the best questions, by far.

35 F-35's from Hill Afb, UT perform a show of force

That will be less than 3 months worth of F-35 production at full rate.

Did someone order some explosions ? Two clips in the video of C-130 firing hellfire missiles I presume, either way a great video with some great footage of weapon impacts

Either Griffins or Hellfires. They carry both.

wonder what happens if they get into a speed control

There is a tactical reason to do this actually. Most AI-radars will screen low altitude returns under 100 mph or so to filter ground clutter (ground,vehicles, buildings, etc). Back in the 80's, the autobahn used to be the bane of AWACS (and Eagles) over Germany because of all the guys in fancy BMW's going too fast to be filtered.

So if you go down a known roadway below or near the speed filtered at the opening of hostilities, even if you start giving intermittent returns you're likely to be ignored. Until all hell breaks loose. Then they change the filter speed and start intercepting all the guys fleeing in their fancy BMW's which presents its own set of problems and issues.

Things are a little more sophisticated now, and it's easier for processors to classify a helicopter based on the nature of the return, but some radar processors are "smarter" than others.

With saying that it reminded me of this story, whether it's true or not I don't know but still funny


Edit: probably not true as it says Sidewinder air to ground missile, sidewinders are air to air only right ?

00:18 in the video cheeky playing with a Strela 2 Manpad, wonder why they’d be using it for a shootdown of a target drone, I could see testing it against countermeasures and launch detection systems but if that was the case didn’t seem to help much as it hit its mark.
