Hey again, bastion!

"Can't say enithe way on the colous as neer say it, was not allowed within 500m of the secure shed t was. - Hower pretty ceartin it was Temptest." - are you telling it was your assumption back then that the unknown aircraft was Tempest or is it what you thinks it was to present day?

Tempest is a name of an air system not yet defined, therefore not yet designed or built or flown.

A lot of the BAE demonstrators recently (last 20 years) have been small scale models, Replica was a mock up, no engines, never flew, Taranis was years in the building, used Hawk engines, Typhoon fuel systems, all sorts of beg borrowed and new parts, a subsonic demonstrator.

Prior to that EAP was the forerunner to Typhoon, AFAIK used Tornado Engines and parts and there were a few non flying mockups you can find with twin tails.

We, the U.K. do not have a black budget big enough to make and fly fast movers, in my opinion.

It looks familiar. Nothing wrong with that though.

Hi Violator1, when you say it looks familiar which aircraft are you thinking it's similar to?


I think it's damn awesome :-)

Cheers

Airbus are now suggesting that the UK should be part of the Franco-German collaboration led by Airbus, saying there's only room for one design "in Europe". This follows their explicit exclusion of the UK last year. Could it be the UK announcement and plans threaten to destabilise Franco-German politics here, and the assumption that they could monopolise this area in the future?

Personally I think collaborating on this type of programme with countries like France is fraught with dangers, especially if you are going to take a subservient role. I'm also not convinced that Airbus can manage a piss-up in a brewery after the A400M problems.

The UK should take the view that if France or Germany want to join the UK-led programme, then that would be good. Considering the UK is not starting from scratch here as they will take lessons from previous programmes e.g. Replica, Taranis, F35 etc.

A UK fighter alliance with Sweden, Italy and a couple of other European nations sounds like a exciting prospect. Doubly exciting if was truly international and countries like Japan joined.


If Britain joins France and Germany for Tempest then Americans would not be allowed any role in it. France and Germany are rivals of America and they won't allow Americans to have a role in it.

Boeing is interested in helping.

ukdefencejournal.org.uk...


Boeing had always been weak in fighter development. Since Boeing bought McDonnell Douglas there hasn't been a single new fighter jet coming out of Boeing. The final fighter jet coming out of former McDonnell Douglas is Super Hornet and that's a 1990s design with Australia being the only country other than America that bought it.

Why are France and Germany rivals with the USA? They both have aircraft made in the USA? England doesn't want to join with them as we'll end up funding most of it with them reaping the benefits. We'll end up with a SAAB partnership and Italy with maybe Japan I think.

Counting Super Hornet with Hornet is as silly as counting Su-35 with Su-27.

France and Germany don't speak English. The only European country friendly with America is Britain.

France and Germany are the only countries that ever mounted serious invasions on Russia. France under Napoleon and Germany under Hitler. America never fought Russia. France and Germany scoff Americans cowards.

Haha awesome.

I mean, there's probably not a lot of love lost between "Mutti" and "the Don", this is a pretty ridiculous take on world politics at the moment. Besides, why would we need to fight a country with a GDP smaller than Italy to prove our mettle to Germany and France (who lean on Gazprom for energy supplies-- in the winter)? I'm sure they'd appreciate us opening up a shooting war for kicks and giggles. Greece could probably successfully invade Germany right now; doubt they're rearing to go up against the Red menace, such as it is. I'm going out on a limb and saying a big shooting match in Europe isn't what France and Germany are looking for from America.

I don't think a war with Russia would be easy. Probably a good indication that european countries aren't begging to have such a war break out. Particularly the Germans who have a handful of mission-capable aircraft and tanks and hardly any munitions for them.
But you're free to pretend that the reason for any tension between the EU and the US is because the US won't start a Napoleanic or Hitlerian war with Russia. I won't stop you.

Americans. All talk no action. The only time America and Russia have war is in Hollywood.
