  1. As a simple helicopter guy why can you just “undo” the TOGA? Seems like if you press a button to initiate full thrust then you should be able to deselect it.
  2. The min engagement distance (for training) for the GAU-18 was 300m for this reason. Plus the baby-BRRRR of the mini-gun is so satisfying.
  3. We can do the same with the Raptor:
  4. Thomas Nametags from Colorado Springs made my last A-2 nametag. I was very impressed.
  5. I was there. You all lost your hipster mustaches after that.
  6. Now you have DRACO guys running from the MPs and being followed back to your compound by the PTDS.
  7. The MiG may have survived if he would have used the Defensive Egg
  8. The CSAF safety video from November has a video reconstruction of this.
  9. Kirtland is closer to 9 months for the HH-60G IQT.
  10. A couple of the regionals already offer this.
  11. Should have taken that bet... https://www.defensenews.com/air/2019/01/18/the-air-forces-plans-to-begin-a-light-attack-aircraft-competition-are-now-deferred-indefinitely/

    WTB: MBU-5/P

    The comm cords should be similar between the 20/P and the 5/P. I'm sure one of the fighter bros here can source one from a friendly AFE shop. I know the one at Nellis was very helpful when I was working on other projects.
  13. Yet they had two months to vote before the new Congress was sworn in.
  14. There is a reason the final block of USAFWS is called Integration. That is the biggest thing a patch brings to the fight. A tanker patch may not be flying the night one vul up to the refueling track but you had better believe that they are intimately involved in the fuel plan for the push (if they're not editing PRFs for the Wg/CC). ICBMs have patches. It's not because they need tactical experts to employ their fire-and-forget missile, but because they are ostensibly experts at planning and integrating the available assets and target from the NTO into the OPLANs directed by JCS. A Huey Weapon School (proper) would not work at this stage because there is not that integration. Yes, weapons are employed and tactics are used but outside of Security Forces nobody is integrated with (unless you add the AFDW mission but you know that they don't like to play nice with outside agencies). Any talk of it is just an OPR circle jerk by officers that want to put their name on things.
