One noob question
Does the EOTS on F35 work as IRST also?

^^ The short answer is, Yes. Long answer is, there are always trade-offs, even with a upper nose mounted solution. Data is scarce so it cannot be effectively gauged how effective it might be as an IRST solution.

Yes. I saw it in a bollywood song and was scratching my head for weeks. The hump, fuselage and wings were distinctly 747 but those podded twin engines didn't make any sense. Finally I searched for odd 747 variant and got the following.

A question of Jet Engine gurus here:

How does the F-16 manage to attain Mach 2+ speeds without the use of a variable intake ramp/cone or a DSI? Every other Mach 2+ aircraft needs one of those technologies to cross Mach 1.8. The F-16 seems to be the only exception other than the F-22 which uses a different caret compression technology which I do not understand. It is apparently also used on the SuperHornet but the SH is limited to Mach 1.6 while the F-22 can go beyond Mach 2.2.

A question on Google Earth and other Map experts.

Over the past few weeks I have been trying to map the border road infra by manually checking and following branching tracks and roads on the GE. Right now focusing on Aksai chin and Ladakh area both sides. The question is how can i see LAC marking as the GE is not showing the LAC, at least in my login. I have switched on "everything" in the layers option.

It won't show from Indian IP addresses. Wikimapia does, though it is not always accurate. For example, it shows only the chinese claim line over Pangong Tso along with the IB. But it is a good starting point, nevertheless.

Is there a potential route to Xinxiang from the Indian side?
