We would not want the Russians studying our missile defense systems, I doubt if Russia would want us checking out theirs. Because Turkey is not a true Russian ally, I doubt if their missile defense systems are the same as the ones deployed by their own military in their country. Russia is not dumb, they know that Turkey will allow inspection of their technology by the USA and the EU. I am sure the only missile defense systems employing True Russian technology in Syria are under Russian control. Lesser versions would be available for the Syrian military.

Silly person! A strategic strike with a small EMP and all the Fs, even the F35, would be tin cans falling out of the sky.

No, no they wouldn't. You do realize that EMP testing is part of the certification process, right? All military aircraft and vehicles go through it. There are multiple testing sites that perform the testing and they don't pass certification until they survive the test.

Why do you always beat me to it?? **whining**

Oh, well. As I understand it, the testing, as it should be, is very comprehensive. No idea what all is entailed in it, it'd be interesting to witness in person.

This is Atlas I. It was set up at Kirtland in the 60s. Every bit of it was wood, down to the fasteners that held it together. They'd put aircraft on it and hit them with an EMP burst.



Now, they have a wire rig at Pax River that they can taxi under. It hits the aircraft with a massive electrical charge to stimulate an EMP. There are also a couple chambers, such as Benfield at Edwards. They can rotate the floor to put the aircraft in different positions. They put them on jacks and raise the gear and test everything from the aircraft itself to external weapons.

Now that you remind me, I've seen that picture of the Buff on that stand many times. Don't recall ever reading the "why" of it. Now I know!!

Besides the US and Britain, Turkey has been the most active and militant state actor in the War on Terror.
Pot meet kettle.

Turkey plays to both sides. Buying nuclear power plants from Russia. Buying F-35 from America. Turkey ain't anyone's ally.

The F-35... is something seriously out of this world. It's combat presence is a 1000x force multiplier.

Thats what they said about the F/117s how they are something out of this world and super stealth lol oops until one of them was shut down in Serbia by an old soviet radar system lol.

F35s are a junk.

Jesus people that say things like this make me laugh my ass off. The F-117 flew thousands of missions against multiple types of air defenses, and against some of the densest defenses we had gone up against since WWII. But because one, that was using tactics that we had learned were insane in Vietnam, was shot down by a very intelligent missile battery commander that took advantage of them, it was a total piece of shit. Give me a damn break.

As for the F-35, if you're basing your comments on that, you got a lot of research to do.

One? Out of how many hundreds, if not thousands, of missions over some of the densest AAA/missile defences seen since the second world war?

Yeah, clear evidence of the airplane being horrible.

Oh, I see Zaph beat me to it...oh well.
