Personally, taking those six Raptors from the UAE and a few low level passes over one or two Capital cities would result in massive conversions to Christianity......


All hail the fire-spitting metal bird! Behold the fiery serpent!

Look up high! The end is nigh!

I'm far more interested in the OTHER platform that was there.


My first thought was: "I wonder what they were riding shotgun for?"
My second though was: "Bet, that daggum Zaph knows!".

could it be possible that a global hawk was flying in the area already for several hours and beaming back real time information.

i don't think your normal drone was doing it. you of course have seen what civilian recon satellites can do. check out Skybox Imaging

if civilian satellites can do this kind of imagery you know the military/NSA/CIA have far greater capabilities and besides satellites then in drones like the global hawk.

And ideas which "Platform" dropped this ordanance?



Pretty low yield by the looks of it?

Its mission didn't include low level strike capabilities, so it want designed for that.

Neither was the F18 originally designed to be a strike fighter.

The Raptor's mission doesn't exist there, I agree.

We shouldn't be there, either.

If the strike package that hit that compound were made up of stealth assets (F-22's), I would think the craft that was doing BDA was also stealth and by the loiter time it had (pre and post attack daytime photos plus nighttime during attack video) it lends itself to be a UAS. If it was a UAS that was taking those shots, the list of UAS's that are also stealth is fairly short.

They are using B-2 Spirits there don't know about using F-22s for the strike role probably not.

Yeah, looked like a concrete bomb with a laser guide kit. Like the ones used in Libya against un-hardened targets.

This strike is reported to be by the F-22's. Most likely dropping JDAM's and not hanging around to see what happens.

The video and shots taken before and after the attack was not from an F-22.

I had heard no 'coalition' assets were used until the third wave. Nothing but U.S. for the first two.

I dont want to start a fight about what plane is better bla bla bla. BUT, correct me if I am wrong, but from what I hvae heard, the Americans F-22 Raptor is inferior to the Russian T-50 PAK FA. So Puttin being worried, I think not.

You mean besides the fact that there are the most stunningly clear pictures and video taken of their target both before and after, despite the F-22 not being equipped with an electrooptical system? And they were taken from an angle that would make it impossible to release your weapons, and reach the angle they were taken from before they hit?


Boy I'm out of the loop
I assumed an RPA with Artis took the pics.
All 368 camera eyes at once.

Isn't the T-50 PAK FA only still in the prototype stage still?

If true that's a pretty tall claim.

Thats all.

Can i ask you if you think that the "birdie" in question has anything to do with the one that neatly parked on target all the shots in this video after the 1:30 mark?



www.youtube.com...

Because i've seen laser guided munitions before, but that strike...leaves me speechless.
