I am not sure to take your responses as the ramblings of a child or merely some one talking out of their depth.
Alright, I will break this into a point by point format, so that for the less mentally inclined of the membership can follow it clearly, without
error. [Hopefully: Stupitidy knows no bounds]
This one is simple, rather than depending on the US news services, such as CNN or Fox, or any other News Network provider, I prefer to seek out a
number of sources and then average them out. That requires the ability to count, also to use complex functions, such as adding and dividing, if you
have issues in these areas I can direct you to a suitable website.
I prefer to have a wider range of figures to make my comments rather than depending on one fixed source, and if, as I believe you have based your
comments on the combat deaths of US Troops, you are putting tomuch trust in a Second hand source that has had "questionable" stories in the past and
High Proformance Aircraft, I personally include helicopters in that format, as they are the ones that would be involved in any land conflict, plus at
7 Million US per unit [Aka per Aircraft], that is alot of money and "Protected" Aircraft, that have been shot down by a Force of lightly armed
rebels within the "free iraq".
Now if these people can shoot down so many aircraft without the latest in US technology, using old soviet RPGs [Anti Tank weapons] 30 yr old Roland
[Hand Held SAMS], without the latest Sovet anti missile technology and training, how do you think a force that is trained to shoot down US aircraft,
with the latest in Soviet Missile systems. [Factor in their advanced SAM systems that the Chinese have "gained" or brough from the Soviets/Russians,
or other East Block Countries]
Also, it was a AC130 not the Cargo Version which you stated in that reply, I will see about providing a picture. [Note: I never said High
Preformance-JET, I said aircraft]
US Battle Tactics
Troops ok yeah they got numbers so what al we got to do is bomb their farms and blockade their shores and they will starve faster than we can kill
them. Try feeding 1.5 billion people when your agricultural products are being bombed and no imported food is getting to you.
LOL I am sorry but that is the first thing I did when I saw that. ::Watches fleets of b2s bombing paddy fields:: lol sorry i can't help myself.
I agree that the US could bomb the Farms etc, but how? Stealth Aircraft? you would need what... a few 100 thousand aircraft to strike those farms and
Vietnam proved that even with "Agent Orange" they still did ok, that may have worked for Europe in WW2 but I don't think it would work with China.
Like FredT said the USAF has got plenty of ways to eliminate the SAMs Via unmanned drones with PGM's or other systems, now unlimited replacements
someone is reading a bit too much from the PR manual nothing is unlimited.
Quote one operation unit of UAVs that have a "Wild Weasel" ability. Sure you can attack SAM sites but missiles and launchers are in large numbers
within China, that is based off a number of Pentagon "White Papers" which I will be happy scan or find a online version for you.
I Haven't read an air defence Chinese Manual, if you have a link to one, I would be quite happy to read it. PS things like missiles are quite cheap
in relations to aircraft, and for china are their primary anti aircraft capability.
Another example of how the chicoms misinform their people POINTER the USAF will be getting the first operational squadron of raptors next year buddy
Well I was a wee bit taken back by this as you are assuming that I am Chinese, lol Sorry, but even after stating I was from Northern Ireland, part of
the United Kingdom. If you require a map, that is nice and big with the text in large bold font, I will also pass a suitable link to you.
Note: It will take the US another 3 years for those F 22 to be even near half strength, and allow their crews to train in them
In regards to your B2 Comment, thats easy
A F117 was downed in a similar manner, you trick them. You move around your radar sites or units, layering them, with the systems shut down, with the
only tracking systems operating that are passive, IR [Also sound, which is more of a problem for the F117 due to the baffles]. Now you know which
targets they will want to strike, you lay in wait using your mobile units, those aircraft use engines, those engines get hot, shielded or not and for
most early Soviet Missiles have a backup IR tracking ability [This Feature, based on some of the SAM systems that the US and UK troops found in Iraq
have IR tracking as standard, in case the parent Radar site should be attacked, it can still home in on its target through IR].
Note for you, Operation/Tactical intell that would point out these sites, isn't always effective, due to the use of decoy's etc
Oh, are you a member of west point or, whats the term, "Wannabe" ?
NI Part of the United Kingdom
Aka on the other side of the world from China
