Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Above comment "stracture " I interpret that as structure... There's a Gripen NG demonstrator flying since 2 years. If India is interested in 2010+ technology in both aircraft design and avionics then they shouldnt look at Rafale which is locked in a 1970s design. To take lessons from redu...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

By 'Paper' do you mean currency notes ? K it mean that Gripen NG stracture hasn't been even produced, doesn't exist! this is real! lWeiG52Q88w you can see here the aerodyn of LERX, close coupled canards and wing sweep angle effect on lift, eurofighter "single seat demo" hasn't, you'll see...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

And despite all the experience and R&D muscle, the RBE 2 PESA is conclusively outperformed by the Captor and Bars. RBE2 PESA is no more produced, Mech captor will be till 2020, and will light on Foe RWR a decade more! It takes 1h to retrofit a Pesa with AESA antenna.. :wink: Korrigan is a multi...

CGP production to be delivered in 2011 will add much cost efficience and power, and still be 2 cooled channels for IR reductions more efficient than Ej200 and F414 1 channel cooled ones! :wink:

Sweden fights for the Gripen in Romania.. agrees to settle for the price of 2nd hand F-16's.. Sweden could provide 24 new "fully NATO interoperable Gripen C/D fighters, including training, support, logistics and 100 percent offset for the amount of one billion euros (1.3 billion dollars) .&quo...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Not so much with regard to the Rafale(except maybe the claim of poor serviceability), but those related to the Eurofighter still apply. The post was in response to Shatack who felt the EF losing the Singapore competition(as well as others) was a damning statement against its bid for the IAF's MMRCA...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

I'll believe it beat it Typhoon when the details of the exercises are released. Until then its speculation. F-35B orders haven't been cut, by virtue of never having been placed. But, while we're on the topic, of the two QE class ACs, only one is now scheduled to field the F-35. That's basically a c...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

The RAF and Luftwaffe's operational experience with the Typhoon has been extremely positive. And the sale of Typhoons to the Saudis is due to major cuts in defence spending across the board in the UK, not because the aircraft was found deficient. Operational experience? sheep watching in falklands?...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

this comes as a shock, i expected the EF to have a good operational record but what technical problems could it have? this is the problem when you make a patchwork plane, it's not reacting good to design board and feedbacks, so now that 4 partners buried the problem with tranche 3A, no further need...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

The Austrian Eurofighter site states that Typhoon can supercruise at 1.5 mach. Considering that no payload info is given, I assume this figure is for a clean Typhoon. Even so, we can safely assume that for a typical air-air loadout, Typhoon will be able to supercruise. Now the question is its abili...
