    I kind of like the original Mig-25 for its blunt, balls to the wall power and speed.

    PHILIPPINE SEA (June 8, 2018) A C-2A Grey Hound, assigned to Fleet Logistic Support Squadron (VRC) 30, launches from the flight deck of the Navy's forward-deployed aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), carrying Capt. Paul Lanzilotta, the ship's outgoing executive officer. Ronald Reagan, the flagship of Carrier Strike Group 5, provides a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of its allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region.

    F-35 passes 300th delivery milestone

    With the 300th aircraft being a conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) F-35A for the US Air Force (USAF), 197 F-35A, 75 F-35B short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL), and 28 F-35C carrier variant (CV) JSFs have now been delivered to US and international customers.

    According to Lockheed Martin, touch labour on the F-35 has been reduced by about 75% over the last five years while the production span time has decreased by about 20% since 2015. As such, the next 300 aircraft should all be delivered by the end of 2020.

    T-50 begs to differ~~`

    yes, old photo - different angle



    inb4 well it's not as stealthy as the F-35!!1

    (because it can actually fly at 2+)

    This has been bugging me about the T-50 for a while: Why are the engines canted out from the center line like that?
    I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those Thukkers, that way I wouldn't have to have any goddamn stupid useless conversations with anybody.

    I'm not an aeronautics engineer, and so this is a massive WAG. I suspect it's to provide a slightly greater range on the angle the thrust vectoring can get to for yaw. It could also be structural / maneuvering related, if the thrust axes of the engines each pass through the center of mass of the aircraft the overall support structure can be made a bit lighter.

    afaik it's for the case where an engine fails. The engines are mounted quite far apart so flying on one engine means considerable off-axis thrust making it harder to control the plane. Angled outwards like they are means the thrust acts more towards the centre of mass on the plane.

    More stealthy: several different kinds of grey.
