british fighter jets 2019

In Russia, development work continues on the R-77M with its AESA seekerhead offering a larger field of regard than existing technology. Wed 11 Dec 2019 08.37 EST Last modified on Wed 11 Dec 2019 11.30 EST. This could be a  very long range air to air missile (VLRAAM) with ranges exceeding 300 km. I have read dozens of such comparisons. One Russian analyst we spoke to questioned the effectiveness of the R-77 noting Russia’s lack of investment in modernising the weapon and the glacial pace of development of ultra-long range weapons for the Su-35. We can also just use the BAE Taranis surface elements for really hard maneuvering. First British F-35B land onboard HMS Queen Elizabeth Pictures released by the MOD show UK F-35 Lightning jets landing, taking off and hovering onboard Britain’s next generation aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time. The recent addition of the AIM-120D to the Raptor’s arsenal give it a weapon of improved range and sophistication. The concept sees the physical controls seen in current aircraft cockpits replaced with Augmented and Virtual Reality displays projected directly inside the visor of a helmet, which can be instantly configured to suit any mission. A great sensor suite, including a modern AESA (the APG-80) and comprehensive defensive aids systems is combined with advanced weapons and a proven platform; a small radar cross section also helps. Key members from the Team Tempest industry partner community also provided attendees with updates on the programme and explained how Tempest is working in radical ways to develop world-leading capability, with a focus on affordability and efficiency.”. .. how many hardpoints etc, Its gathering pace and looks impressive so far ;P. I would imagine the the Tempest like the proposed FB22 has generously sized internal weapon bays. The only potential rivals, the Russian Su-57 and Chinese J-20, remain immature. In this category the F-22 has failings, which include a low combat readiness and a small fleet. Of course in contrast we remember the DH 108 Swallow was a disaster maybe that’s what people are thinking. They even claimed to have invented the bell shape lift profile, but it was all Prandtls work really. The likes of Leonardo, SAAB & other companies they connect to eg Volvo etc can bring a lot more than money. But the signs are encouraging, with the order-book stacking up and a large amount of time, money and effort put into the weapon’s development. Just goes to show what can be achieved with £2b seed money. Facebook. Though the famously one-sided score sheet of the F-15 should be taken with a pinch of salt (Israeli air-to-air claims are often questionable to say the least), the F-15 has proved itself a tough, kickass fighter that can be depended on. Even if this programme does not go ahead UK aviation and high tech industries will benefit considerably. It’s not about looks. At first glance this aircraft looks ‘right’, in a way that the F35 just doesn’t quite to me. The type is cursed by a giant radar cross section, a massive infra-red signature and an inferior high altitude performance to a newer generation of fighters. The aircraft had successfully gone through several test flights without incident. MiG-31. Undisputed king of beyond-visual range air combat remains the F-22 Raptor. At long range, the Su-35 can fire a mix of semi-active radar homing, anti-radiation (home on jam) and IR homing missiles, whilst at short range the ‘Archer’ series remains as deadly as ever. Would love your thoughts, please comment. Depends on as I said before what’s in the design studios presently to solve the complex issues involved. The Typhoon is very fast, high flying and energetic, imbuing its AMRAAMs and Meteor with a longer reach than those launched by lower performance aircraft. Israeli F-16s also deserve an honourable mention for their advanced jamming and avionics systems, but are largely tasked with ground attack. Flying wing doesn’t always mean B2 bomber type of shape. The fastest modern fighter in the world, with a top speed of Mach 2.83+, the MiG-31 offers some unique capabilities. That might well change by the time final design is decided upon as we only really see what is in the design concept aerodynamic studios from some 10 to 15 years ago before physical examples start to come to light, but certainly is why so many of these proposals look similar. The u k s futuristic tempest fighter re energising the uk aircraft industry fifth generation fighter aircraft fgfa british fighter jet uk to double f 35 fleet with 17 jet Meet The Tempest Uk S Very British Fighter Jet WiredU K Introduces New Fighter Jet The TempestEverett Aero S Support10 Of The Best Cur British […] The ‘F-21’ (a designation some may say intended to avoid the Pakistani associations the F-16 has to many in the Indian Air Force) offered to India would have a widescreen cockpit and impressively modern systems. They are not though, Italy or Sweden. However, the downside to this is that the Irbis-E has to operate at extremely high power levels to achieve this performance and so is easily detectable and track-able at ranges beyond those at which it can track. It would have to be used carefully, taking advantage of its advanced connectivity and superior Electronic Warfare systems to make the most of its formidable armament. In our original list from five years ago, the Gripen did not even make the top ten. Especially if likes of Italy, Australia and Japan joined looking to support various lighter to medium weight carriers. Doesn’t look groundbreaking in design. US F-15Cs were among the first fighters in the world to receive the AIM-120D AMRAAM, the best Western air-to-air missile after the Meteor.With an estimated 100mile range, new hardware and software systems for improved navigation, an improved HOBS (High-Angle Off-Boresight) capability, the D model offers a significant advantage. I think we should be developing a 6th gen jet for the RN too. Its superbly stealthy design means it is likely to remain undetected to enemy fighters, calmly despatching its hapless opponents. Rafale has a more advanced radar than the other European and Russian fighters and weapons (Mica and the Meteor) that the Russians and Chinese do not known as well as the elderly and universal AMRAAM, and thus may be less able to counter. It also lacks the agility and high altitude performance of the F-22, Rafale or Typhoon. The fastest modern fighter in the world, with a top speed of Mach 2.83+, the MiG-31 offers some unique capabilities. When it enters full service it will be assessed. The above image of the prospective Tempest aircraft, is I think really quite poor aerodynamically. As a defender against bombers the MiG-31 may well be the most potent interceptor in the world. ... conceived as an unarmed bomber but rapidly morphing into a multi-role … Sweden is to be the first partner nation in the British Tempest programme to build a next-generation fighter jet. Stealth and unparalleled situational awareness make a potent beyond visual fighter of the F-35A, despite its pedestrian kinematic performance. Just had a thought. I would suggest less energy manoeuvrability, as the configuration is likely to have somewhat higher transonic drag. Most of those responsible are likely retired on a massive pension moved on to balls up projects in other fields or are sitting with their knighthoods or in the HofL taking their easy money for a wonderful career of ‘unstinting selfless’ service to the Crown. Just thinking the same thing, this country doesn’t have a great rack record in following through with large orders without some cut backs with the knock on effect of a higher ticket price. He implements the technique of how birds fly without a vertical surface. (Contenders for the number 12 slot included the J-10, FC-1, Iranian F-14, MiG-35, Mirage 2000 and F-2). Flying wings are very efficient for a bomber or other long linger time aircraft like a observation drone but they are terrible at supersonic speeds or in sharp manoeuvres. I’m looking forward to the post Covid wash up to see how things pan out with regard to both the shady shenanigans and also the competency angle. If we think that surface vessels may encounter increasing difficulties, notwith standing their ability to move considerable distances, how much more will traditional static land bases find survival? All governments will or have made mistakes but stuff like not shutting the borders etc is bound to be scrutinised. I don’t know. First F-35 fighter jet lands onboard HMS Queen Elizabeth. Future Typhoons will carry the Captor E ‘Radar Plus One’, a new pivoted wide-view AESA, with the chance of an all new Radar Plus Two further in the future. Against bombers and cruise missiles it is superbly capable (and would be ranked higher on this list), however as a defensive interceptor it is vulnerable to more agile and stealthier fighter opponents. The image, show below, accompanied the news that ‘Team Tempest’ have strengthened relationships across UK industry. Upgrades now planned will improve the EW suite, engines and cockpit. It could be a false tail for adversaries to follow? (British Ministry of Defence) However, the radar is a decent size, with good detection range and is fully mature. Exactly this. I’m not a Boris cheerleader but I am sort of waiting to… Read more ». Israeli F-16s also deserve an honourable mention for their advanced jamming and avionics systems, but are largely tasked with ground attack. Assessing the J-20s capability in this sense is hard. The results of the trials will inform further development to better understand a pilot’s cognitive behaviour and processes relating to brain activity, psychological rhythms and eye movement to inform further development. With the rate at which these fighter jets are being developed, it is reasonable to say that some of these fighter jets will soon become obsolete. The F-35B, one of the three variants of the warplane, is Britain's most advanced and expensive fighter jet. The additional fuel could confer either additional range, or long combat persistence, and this suggests that, if armed with a long-range AAM a role as an anti-AWACS or anti-tanker system. The announcement of Sweden’s collaboration on the project is expected to be made later this month at the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT). But you may be pushing even more than me! Though primarily an air-to-ground sensor the pod will improve target detection and identification. (Asahi Shimbun file photo) RAF Tranche 1 Typhoons are not Meteor compatible but will instead be fitted with AIM-120D in a deal that was signed in July 2018. The Su-35 is considerably more capable than earlier ‘Flanker’s and would pose a significant challenge to any ‘eurocanard’. Smaller BVR missiles now being studied may address the shortcoming in combat persistence which prevents the type from taking full advantage of its stealth and SA advantage. Older F-16s, including some USAF examples are being upgraded with the APG-83 AESA radar. COVID has hit them very hard but I’m sure they’ll recover from that. Share. The next advanced variant of the Viper, the F-16V/Block 70,  has been ordered by Slovakia and Bahrain. That still really p****s me off. The Typhoon is one only two aircraft on this list (the other is Gripen) with a mechanically scanned radar, a 20th century technology which leaves the sensor “… on the verge of complete obsolescence, with an inherently greater vulnerability to jamming and an inability to fully exploit the performance and capabilities of new weapons” according to some in the RAF Typhoon community. Imagine a fighter shaped like a B-2 Spirit though……. 4 September 2019 (Last Updated September 4th, 2019 11:32) The British Royal Air Force (RAF) has completed a four-month Operation Azotize deployment to support the Nato Baltic Air Policing mission in Estonia. We have some poor characters in government…particularly at the moment. Time for my tablet, I note. The Su-35 represents the Flanker series for this list but other high-end T-10 series aircraft include the Su-30, J-11B and J-16. how far behind are russians in visual range and bvr missile tech? In addition, signature (other than head-on) looks likely to be a bit greater. The combustion system is where fuel is introduced and burned to release energy into the gas stream. British RAF fighter jets return home following Operation Azotize. Project Tempest: Musings on Britain’s new superfighter project. The main benefit to be gained from this arrangement is the carriage of significantly more fuel, coupled with the scope for use of a longer weapons bay. MBDA UK has also embedded one of its Human Factors engineers within this wearable cockpit team, ensuring early introduction of weapons concepts that exploit these future technologies. This list, which for the sake of brevity (largely) treats aircraft as isolated weapon systems, does not favour the Super Hornet: in reality, with support from E-2Ds and advanced other assets, US Navy Super Hornets would be extremely capable in the BVR arena against most adversaries. The project also has the LANCA remote carrier and MOSQUITO swarming drones linked unmanned systems. The Tempest looks well proportioned. I’m aware of the The BAE-HAL Joint ‘Advanced Hawk’ cooperation project. A2A armament: 6 x AIM-120C-7 or AIM-120D  2 x AIM-9X. Older F-16s, including some USAF examples are being upgraded with the APG-83 AESA radar. The J-20 has a canard-delta rather than the (essentially) tailed-delta of both the Raptor and the Su-57 (which has yet to enter service). But how big is it? Six. So effort is concentrated on those elements that have caused huge problems and delays for the F35: superhot engines(damage to stealth coating and airframe structure); helmet projection of data ( pilot overload and even disorientation); massive sensor fusion. And/or can its technologies be adapted to a bomber? Detection abilities are likely to be excellent. The main benefit to be gained from this arrangement is the carriage of significantly more fuel, coupled with the scope for use of a longer weapons bay. U.K. Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson speaks at RAF Marham on Jan. 10, 2019, declaring initial operational capability on nine F-35 Lightning jets. Tomislav Haraminčić. Is the concept of a ‘fighter out moded? It would be cheaper to convert QE class to CAToBAR, then develope a STOL Tempest! I.e. I was in defence procurement and listened to some of the guys invovled in FRES. Its combination of high energy manoeuvrability, all aspect stealth, AESA radar and its ability to receive information from other aircraft allow it massive liberty in its options. Abundant fuel reserves and a large weapon load. So I’m sorry, but you’ve already demonstrated that you don’t mind not only covering defective and overpriced aircraft that don’t work properly yet, but you inexplicably rank it above top-tier fighters that are fully functional. Some caution could be expressed about the Meteor, as it is far from being a combat proven weapon. It will certainly be ahead of the Franco/German effort, in terms of payload and range, as the European project will be constrained by the French insistence on Carrier capability, leading to AU weight and size limits, plus wing area limits, as they will no doubt try to avoid expensive wing fold mechanisms too. Until the advent of Meteor-armed Gripens and Typhoons, no operational aircraft had a longer air-to-air weapon than the type’s huge R-33, which can engage targets well over 100 miles away (it may well out-range the AIM-120D). Considering that the USA is our major defence partner, history has shown, especially in recent… Read more », 6 posts before the beautiful TSR2 got mentioned…. Tongue in cheek?

LANCA seems to be smaller than the projects being developed by the US, Australia and Europe for remote carriers, with the idea that there should be more of them and attritable. They are large European based defence multinationals with world wide defence sales. This page was last edited on 13 May 2019, at 13:48 … Have they just taken an image of the MiG-31 from “Firefox” and painted it grey? The F-35A has gained a formidable reputation in large-scale war-games; against conventional opponents the F-35 raking up a reported 17-1 simulated aerial victories. However, it was found that when applying the airbrakes the aircraft significantly steadied and made a much more stabile firing platform, as the drag generated by the upper and lower airbrakes on the wing tips stop… Read more ». October 25, 2019 Top 10 night fighters. The perennial issue of immature Chinese engine technology is yet to be solved, and the current status of the Xian WS-15, the powerful definitive service engine, is unclear. What of the compromises? The third Russian fighter jet on the fastest fighter jet list, the Mikoyan design bureau built the MiG-31. For the West the big problem is the openly nationalist government in India at the moment, not sure how we get past that one. A Meteor on an a Rafale of the 4e Escadre de Chasse at Saint-Dizier. Website admin will know that you reported it. In many ways this is true, but the J-20 is particularly interesting because of its rather different configuration. Leaks! Today the only UK designed military aircraft in ADF inventory is the Hawk 127 trainers, and currently the RAAF has a project running to replace the Hawk, the front runner appears to be the Boeing T-7A. In the end there is always one best engineering solution to a given set of problems, it’s the reason all F1 cars look the same, As can be seen at any international airport where practically all twin-engined airliners have the same basic layout. The wing twist was included in their Horten IX fighter, but it never really solved the Dutch Rolling. Whilst single mindedness can be a virtue it certainly is not in a pandemic. Though initial operational capability is yet to be officially declared, it is likely that it the capability is either already in place or extremely close. Meanwhile in China, Flankers and J-10Cs are now flying with the PL-15, but it is believed they are not at a level of maturity that will upset the applecart, for this year anyway. Qatari Rafales may already be training with helmet mounted displays. But yes, high-G manoeuvres is where this concept needs to go and best tested for something viable. A word of caution about the high ranking we have given the F-35: procurement moves by the US (both F-22s and 6th Gen’ plans), Japan (with the F-3) and Turkey (prior to the 2019 F-35 boycott) with the TF-X show that those who can afford an alternative don’t consider the F-35 a viable air superiority platform. These concepts are part of a wider research effort to develop technologies that could be used to create a next generation combat air system for the UK. They look cool, are incredibly fast, extremely expensive and flown by the best and most courageous pilots in the world. If it goes ahead, and we end up going it alone, then at least I’d really wish to see it incorporate carrier-launch ability, since we’d not likely be able to support two advanced jet designs and would have to max out it flexibility. It is not clear from open source literature if this is the case, but it is likely the PLA are looking into it. Hay maybe the aero dynamic and thrust vectoring potential is more advanced in concept work than we presently… Read more ». It sort of is a modern day TSR2, at least in respect of pushing the technological envelope… Looks absolutely stunning and I ‘really’ hope it happens. The type is marred by a mountainous radar cross section and abysmal agility at lower speeds. France? It is expected to complete certification tests by 2020. Many air forces have trained for years in tactics to counter AMRAAM, but few know much about how to respond to the vast No Escape Zone of Meteor. Its greatest weakness remains its lack of an AESA radar and its non-stealthiness. The Talon HATE (it is unknown what the acronym stands for, assuming it is one) pod  enables the F-15 to connect with the Raptor’s Intra-Flight Data Link (previously a Raptor-to-Raptor only system). (See Idiot’s guide to Flankers here. McDonnell Douglas F-15C (V) 3/Boeing F-15SG/F-15SE Eagle. The Back End Screams YF23 to me,but it looks Impressive nonetheless. New image of new British fighter jet A new image of the Tempest fighter jet has been revealed by the Royal Air Force. Let’s suppose you have a small-ish nation, where the Government does not have global dominance in its agenda. You have to admit, that Tempest image is basically a 5++ gen jet. So the not great front men couldn’t do anything or have any input. The F-35A has gained a formidable reputation in large-scale war-games; against conventional opponents the F-35 raking up a reported 17-1 simulated aerial victories. But give them an emergency, and they are handing out tens of millions of tax payers money to dodgy cronies for PPE. When Prandtl published his papers in the 30’s, the Hortens’ used his concepts in their flying wing designs. In 2017 the F-35 had a mission capable rate of 54.67%, which is terrible, by 2018 this had dropped by a further 5.1 points to 49.6% percent. Pity the Japanese didn’t choose to join the project. BAE Systems test pilots are now trialling these psycho-physiological technologies in controlled test flight conditions in a Typhoon aircraft. BAE Systems, Leonardo UK, Rolls-Royce and MBDA UK are top notch R&D companies. All radars except AESAs with very low probabilities of intercept such as the F-22’s APG-77 suffer from this paradox but it is worse for the Su-35 because of the latter’s very large RCS and IR signature which means it must rely on out-ranging its opponents at BVR rather than trying to sneak up on them whilst relying on passive tracking. I’m having cheese, leak & potato bake for supper…Foodian slip! It is outfitted with one Tumansky R25-300 turbojet which gives the MiG-21 a maximum speed of 1,350 mph. Yes indeed it has, and the latest news, that French Rafales are now carrying the Meteor long-range missile has had a radical effect on our ranking. Yes mate, Tongue in cheek but, Actually I’d like to see the UK back trading with the World again not just Importing so much from China. I wont see it happen, but some generation deserves to before long. The enormous PESA radar was the first ever fitted to a fighter. They are spending money on something though aren’t they? Well, I’d certainly settle for that too, Capt. I think Leonardo & SAAB are interested & will spend money. USAF is likely to receive a batch of these new generation Eagles, showing both its faith in the type and demonstrating the current belief that stealth-only air forces are too exquisite and lacking in ‘air mass’ (or ‘wings in the air’ – the aerial equivalent of ‘boots on the ground’). Well it does have some resemblances to it, I’m wondering what its flexible payload would comprise of ! With the expressed in service date mid 2030’s. He chose a team that was pro-Brexit and, true to form, it turned out to be short on intellect and basic talent, a bunch of immature yes boys! If the pilots helmet could look outside and cams/radar gives info to the helmet screen why have a cockpit? The multiple seeker-head mix which Russian fighters would fire in missile salvos in combat makes defending against them a very complicated task. The additional fuel could confer either additional range, or long combat persistence, and this suggests that, if armed with a long-range AAM a role as an anti-AWACS or anti-tanker system. In the future, the long range AIM-260 Joint Air Tactical Missile (JATM) is set to replace AIM-120 in the US, enabling it to counter the bogeyman of the PL-15 and match the European Meteor. September 3, 2013 Military Aviation. Although, to be fair Supportive Bloke makes a good point about having a Def Sec who appears to know is business and a Chancellor who opened the purse strings when we really needed it (can you imagine the economic results of a pandemic + austerity? In our article that explained the judging criteria for this top 10, analyst Jim Smith noted ” (The) Air Defence of Russia drives you towards the MiG-31. Su-35S were deployed in Syria in 2016 to provide air cover for Russian forces engaged in anti-rebel/ISIL attacks. Updated 7:53 PM ET, Wed June 26, 2019 A Royal Air Force F-35B Lightning jet returning from its first operational sortie at RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus. Crown copyright. We need to seriously consider finless designs. Yes zi read about that, it’s still only in the proof of concept stage which shows it’s technically possible but in real world scenarios even at best it’s going to have serious limitations certainly in any foreseeable future. Those dinosaurs have no friends, just states they shaft for all their worth. I draw your attention to the supersonic Vickers Swallow and the Taranis, which is planned for mach 1. F22 was the first 5th gen, and is now 20+ years. The RAF Rapid Capabilities Office and core Team Tempest Industry Partners (BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, Leonardo and MBDA) hosted a virtual briefing session to provide a detailed understanding of the work ongoing across the Tempest endeavour and the wider UK Combat Air Sector. I agree Tempest looks as formidable asset, let’s hope it evolves beyond being a technology demonstrator into a viable combat aircraft. When high-altitude limitations are not in place (due to safety concerns) the type fights from a higher perch than F-15s and F-16s, and is more frequently supersonic. How come it’s always American hardware which is always in First place. Even with major partners, a most desirable outcome of course, such STOL design enhancements would add significant sales and operational attraction. that’s funny. Though far from fleet wide, USAF has a number of F-15Cs fitted with both theAPG-63(V)3 radar and the AIM-120D, these Golden Eagles boast a superior radar to any non-US types. Armament for A2A mission: Super Hornet (high drag ‘Christmas tree’) 12 x AIM-120, realistic = 6 x AIM-120C-7/D+ 2/4 AIM-9X ) (1 x 20-mm cannon). Sorry, just can’t see it happening, too many question marks, too much risk. With maybe around 100 35b’s FAA and RAF split, the B’s might all then be transferred to FAA for CSG as Tempest comes online. When the space funding is taken into account it is a good time to be starting out on a career in engineering… As for Tempest I hope it does go ahead as the programme appears to be supporting some real engineering reseach, not just paper studies, given BAE test pilots are involved. The F-22’s ‘mission capable‘ rate is very poor, it plunged from a FY2014 high of 72.7% to an alarming 60% in 2016 to a lamentable 49.01% in 2017! Supercruise and a degree of stealth (though probably less than the F-22 from most aspects) will give the J-20 options, though it is likely to lack the energy manoeuvrability  of the F-22.
