  1. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    I don't hate NAV's, I think mother AF doesn't like them, my jets background doesn't have them so maybe I just don't understand the need.
  2. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Alright, I'll budge a little bit on the Scorpions modular payload, it is pretty good. That being said, how much do those sensors cost, I'm betting that isn't in the bottom line because, well, they are modular. The speed thing cannot be, it's T/W is the same as an A-10, sure its a bit more aerodynamic but I think it's power is underwhelming, on top of that how much do all those sensors weigh? I also think the AF has been trying to get rid of NAV's for a long time, this platform doesn't help that.

    Do said foreigners have constitutional protections, and if they do, why?

    It'll leak, because somebody thinks they are being righteous or because the (D)'s have the red telephone to the NYT anyway and hell, they would and have.

  8. RUMINT: AD FTU F16s to Kelly Field

    Tucson is better, delay as long as you can to come here. The UofA coeds clothing will be getting skimpier as the months pass. We travel more during the B course and we have a decent amount of dissimilar training. We've taken students to New Orleans, Klamath, Portland, Key West, San Diego and Nellis just to name a few. Kelly is an improvement on Holloman though ,as far as jets, we've taken delivery of at least 8 Hill F-16's with plans for more. Kelly has some limitations, namely they come to Tucson to drop bombs.

  10. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Yeah, its ridiculous. The CAF is already hurting and we are going to give them wingmen that can start the jet and thats about it.

    If you're hurt enough you get both, I've read that disability payments are not something that can be given away or split.
  15. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    High, by the time you can take the bonus your standing in the AF is pretty easy to figure out, the opportunities on the outside are just too good to deal with the BS.

    No, that pretty much sums it up but the Repubs aren't far behind with the debt thing anymore which is disappointing but I guess you have to give a little to make a deal. I enjoy a little political debate as well but a lot of liberals I talk to usually default to name calling once you make a point that isn't emotional. Republicans can come off as cold and uncaring when debating but I'm over it, that kind of sums up the difference for me though, a lot of leftist vote with their heart and righty's with their brains. I also think politics are a religion for leftist, owing to their non-belief of traditional religions, once their party loses or is voted out, they lose their Vulcan minds due to that.
