Re: China Military Watch - Sept' 2016

How difficult is it to fit Luneburg reflective lenses on non Stealth aircraft and Su-57 to see the impact they have, given their size cant be adding more than .1sq mtr to .3 sq mtr to the aircraft radar size.

Re: Tejas Mk.2 News & Discussions: 25 February 2018

I strongly believe in not losing aerodynamics for stealth. It just doesn't makes sense. Mk2++ or better Mk3 platform can focus on internal shape deflections and highly permeable aerodynamic shapes to meet mach 2.5+. Why this struggle when we have strong kevlar composites that we used for radomes.? G...
