Re: PAK-FA and FGFA Thread

I feel we shouldn't discount the F-22 so easily. Its list of capabilities is pretty long. You might call me a fanboy (I wouldn't mind it this time) but the F-22 is the benchmark of stealth even today! ^I would agree with you, bhai! :D All I am saying is it wouldn't be a cake walk for F-22s against ...

Re: Newbie Corner & Military Miscellaneous

I have a noob Q ,guys!

If an aircraft of 0.1m2 RCS is carrying a missile of 0.1 m2 externally, would the resultant RCS be the sum of these? If not can anyone give the basics of the calculation?
