  1. The AH-56 Cheyenne continues to live on I see.
  2. Did the P&W F100 -229 offer any advantages over the GE F110 -129? I'd heard that while the GE engines offer better overall performance across the envelope, the Pratt engines were more reliable.
  3. Yes, it was an April Fool's thing but still a funny read. https://tacairnet.com/2017/03/31/navy-to-explore-resurrecting-the-f-14-tomcat-to-replace-the-f-35/
  4. Here is the F-36 Kingsnake. The USAF went dumpster diving and found the F-16XL. https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/aviation/a35865601/f-36-kingsnake-air-force-next-fighter-jet-concept/
  5. Really fascinating interview with a former chief engineer for the ATF program.
  6. Just finished season 2. Overall I liked it although I thought season 1 was still better. I appreciated the fanservice but it felt like they were depending on it too much to carry the season.
  7. I'm pretty sure the second Frogfoot picture is of a Su-25UB trainer. The 3rd would definitely be the Su-25T or TM. Also, The Blue Angels practicing the Super Hornet.
  8. The new clouds look amazing. Also, that reveal at the end.
  9. Nice to see this shared. Been watching VFAT going all the way back to 2008. It's shrunk in recent years but the displays continue to impress.
  10. The F-14A arrives on the 18th. Looking forward to the VF-1 and VF-84 skins.
  11. Yes and I'm enjoying it so far. Do I wish there was a single player mode for the Legends story? Yes but it's not taking away my enjoyment. I've leveling up my Assassin. Then going to move to Ronin class. Played alittle New Game+ as well which deeply welcomed. About to try Doom Eternal: Ancient Gods DLC. From what I'm hearing, it's the modern version of Thy Flesh Consumed and even Plutonium in term of difficulty. I'm sticking with my PC instead of buying a PS5 or Series X. Would like to upgrade my current PCs CPU and eventually considering upgrading the GPU to either a 3070Ti or Rade
  12. I would have been down with calling the F-32 the Crusader II.
  13. Remaining F-117s have been pretty active over at Tonopah for a few years now and are even participating in Red Flag. There were rumors as well that 4 Nighthawks were involved in missions over Syria a few years ago. Another good shot of one flying out of Nellis apparently.
  14. Well, well. Look who's come to play at Miramar. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/37171/f-117-nighthawks-make-surprise-visit-to-mcas-miramar-in-san-diego
  15. Already planning to upgrade my rig to an AMD 4000 series CPU late this year or early next. Interesting stuff coming from Team Green but I'll wait for the inevitable Ti versions of the 3060/3070/3080 come out to think about upgrading from my 1070 Ti.
  16. Looks like the modern Su-35 as I thought the Su-37 and old 35 had the canards.
  17. I good article on the still "retired" F-117. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/35748/f-117-nighthawks-now-appear-to-be-flying-as-adversaries-in-red-flag-aerial-war-games
  18. Good interview with a prior Tomcat pilot.
  19. Loved that low-pass footage of the Tomcat.
  20. Pretty sure it was. https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/check-out-powerful-engine-upgrade-navys-fa-18-super-hornets-and-ea-18g-growlers-are
  21. I remember them back in their earliest incarnation of ZDtv and watching Gamespot TV.
  22. Here is the article on the conversion to the Super Hornet. I'm still hoping to catch one more show with the Blues in the Legacy Hornet but who knows with COVID now. I'm curious if the Blues new Super Bugs also will have the updated engines that the rest of the fleet are getting at the moment. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/35127/the-blue-angels-have-officially-received-their-first-f-a-18e-super-hornet
