    May 1 – An F-16C Fighting Falcon (Serial Number : 88-0550) was shot down by a Yugoslav SA-3 SAM. The aircraft crashes near Šabac, in a rural area of Serbia; the pilot (Lieutenant Colonel David Goldfein) survived and was subsequently rescued.





    The remains of the tail of USAF F-16C block 40 #88-0550 which was shot down while performing combat operations during Allied Force. Displayed at the Museum Of Warplanes in Belgrade in 1999.

    The video was a bit anti climactic to what I expected. I am rather impressed by how long he still had control and radio and how little he himself was injured (as in, apparently not at all).

    Shows how 'well' they glide too. "9000" "6000" must be dropping about 2000ft per minute. Thats a hefty amount of descent considering still in control/going for best glide. Mind you, its a good deal of metal with short stubby wings and a shitload of damage from a missile. So, there is that.

    F-16 glides roughly 1nm for every 1kft of altitude. It also has a limit of about 10min of power to the flight controls once the engine quits and the EPU switches from bleed air to hydrazine.

    Hearing that audio is strange, it sounds so much like (well run) Eve comms. The same mix of fragmentary data being pieced together rapidly to build a full picture, people interjecting as the situation changes, momentary confusion, hesitation, and the constant underlying tension once things heat up. Obviously the jargon is different, but I find it absolutely striking how they share so many core similarities.

    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.

    Indeed. Fleet command is a true player skill.

    You even got people going "I'm out!" as in a ragequit.

    Would love to see similar footage from Russian aircraft where it's understandable. Subtitles or something at least.

    Whats a C-130's glide profile like? For comparison.


    Also, leave it to JAPAN to make the F-16 fat.

    F-16 is ugly anyway. F-16J is alright.

    Edit: Foiled by the master of image tags, the man who's images never fail to work, Razor.

    I like the F-16XL:

    Bad if you're loaded.

    However, we have 4 engines. :3

    Also, soviet AWACS prototype:



    Yak-44 was supposed to be the Hawkeye's counterpart but you can guess how this went down.



    So A-50 is the only russian AWACS in operation:

    Short-lived British equivalent:







    It did the job but the newer carriers didn't operate them, we use helicopters instead now.



    And this is the future version, more like a prototype though:



    Apparently some American admirals thought it was quite impressive compared to the E2 Hawkeye. Does fly like a brick.

    Radar on top: AWACS;
    Radar below: anti-ship craft.

    It's that easy folks.
