A couple more.

DAS is a Missile Approach Warning System (MAWS). A number of aircraft have these systems including the F-22 and Rafale. The acquity in the DAS is better though.



Future growth mode:



According to this pilot however, he doesn't typically use DAS and would rather look out his own eyes. The helmet has integrated night vision which is also typically used for DAS for that purpose.

Israel keeps quiet over F-35I's combat debut

Israel’s Lockheed Martin F-35I "Adir" is reported to have made its combat debut during strikes conducted against Syrian air defence systems last month. The action was mounted following a border clash that culminated in an Israeli air force Lockheed F-16 being shot down by a surface-to-air missile.

It first flew in 2010 and has only entered in limited service with two aircraft. This is almost as slow as the F-35 (2006 first flight and 2015 IOC), but the F-35 reached IOC when the Marines had 10 operational aircraft, plus training aircraft, not 2 total.

I am concerned that I won't live long enough to see the Russian 6th generation aircraft and given the way I take care of myself and the way living standards in the west are going, living to 2100 is my plan.
