Which triples the complexity. You have to have three separate computers, all talking to each other, and putting together an accurate picture of what the target is, and what it's doing, to guide a weapon in. The F-35 is having enough trouble with multiple computers just seeing what one see, let alone with working together and guiding weapons to the target.

Plus with just about everything else with a laser designator can select targets as well.

Maybe stick
a UAV system in the nose and let someone guide it.

Yes it is more complex but in a basic sense what Forensick proposes is broadly similar to what they are already trying to do with the F-35 sharing sensor data in a multi ship formation, which from what I have heard is causing them endless problems once you get above about 2 or 3 aircraft. The original idea being the F-35 would fly in a 4 ship distributed formation with each plugging in its sensor data to combine with the others and provide the flight with a much larger and more detailed picture of the battle space than just one could produce. Problem isn't apparently the data links, its the size of the buffer and processor speed. This will take time to fix but it is fixable.

LEE.

It's already fixed. They're testing the new datalink software now, but in ground testing it works just fine.

F-35 engines from United Technologies Corp. are proving so unreliable that U.S. plans to increase production of the fighter jet may be slowed, according to congressional auditors.
Data from flight tests evaluated by the Government Accountability Office show the reliability of engines from the company’s Pratt & Whitney unit is “very poor (less than half of what it should be) and has limited” progress for the F-35, the costliest U.S. weapons system, the watchdog agency said in a report sent to lawmakers this month.

Are these problems along the same lines as the previous one that caught fire? or something new that has popped up?

Isn,t there something along the same lines with the M1a2,s with ground combat already?

IVIS I think it's called. It shows friendly and enemy vehicles IIRC. It's not as advanced though.

For air to ground attack support for the armoured and ground forces a standardised computer system with redundancies being paramount.Can remember at the battle of 73 Easting they had to be aware of the Iraqi tank forces and coordinate their shots so targets would be taken out simultaneously.

Aircraft carrier in the sky, jeez what next. Submarines in space ?


Well Naval Space Command is a real thing lol. If they could get one of those heavy basterds into space it would kind of work perfect short the Props.

Oh that F-35 is an utter joke anymore. They are using the fuel to cool the CPU's on the aircraft, this is just like using the pumped water to cool the CPU.s on Marine engines. If the water pump is restricted or fails then the engine goes into stupid mode. On the F-35 everything just melts down. In the F-35s case some ignorant engineers must have thought that they dam plane would never sit on a hot tarmac with the engine running, LIKE IN THE MID-EAST!!!! Typical military solution was to paint the fuel trucks white lol.

I pray they scrap this plane and never let Lockheed build another fighter, EVER!!!

We had same problem with the EuroTiger here.Answer was updated aircon units for the avionics.

In essence, you've got agile, broadly capable target designators that can paint every bad guy in the area and then they just dump a #heap of munitions into the air that decide which targets they're going after.

There's some flocking algorithm that keeps them all from picking the same thing.

It's really an interesting problem to solve. You not only have to assign an appropriate munition to each target, you have to pick the best munition to deal with each target, and everyone has to agree on the fly. Whilst painting from several independent sources at once. And dumping munitions from several sources at once.

Just painting easily distinguishable unique signatures on each target is an issue. The Gubmint is blowing megabucks on a really nice OAM targetting system.
