What's the differnce between the TU-160 and the B1?


Well, simply, the TU-160 is **** compared to the B-1B.
It was a copy of the B-1 commisioned by the USSR in order to have a long range inter-continental bomber that they had been looking for. It wasn't too successful though.... The Soviet Union's jet engine technology was far behind that of the United States, so they poured their resources into the TU-95 Bear, which, while slower, gave the USSR it's long range capability.


Anyway, my pick for fighter/interceptor: F/A-22A Raptor
Fighter/Bomber: F-35 JSF
Bomber: B-1B Lancer or B-2 Spirit
Helo: RAH-66 Comanche or AH-64D Apache Longbow

I didn't realize the Tu-160 is **** compared to the B-1B. I guess it must be because the B-1B can do Mach 2 and fly at that speed intercontinentally and unrefueled and carry larger payloads, isn't it?

So, you're saying they weren't too successful with the Tu-160 because it was a copy and its NK-32 jet engines sucked, right? And that is why they concentrated on making the Tu-95? Gotcha! Thanks!


P.S. Those untermenchen Russians suck at everything they do, don't they?

I've seen loads of these pictures with military jets "braking the sound barrier"..

But Im pretty sure this A380 aint going supersonic (since I havent heard of any crashes with it yet, which would probably be the natural explanation)

So, what's happening in this picture? whats the phenomen called?

found this info about the famous f14. dont know how true it is

F-14 CONDENSATION CLOUD IN ACTION
The image at the right is a screen cap of the widely distributed mpeg fs14ss.mpg. This mpeg shows an F-14 generating condensation clouds during a transonic flyby over water. The full explanation of the physics behind the cloud formation can be found in the main Prandtl-Glauert condensation page or my tutorial on Prandtl Glauert condenation clouds.
There are several features of interest in this short mpeg. The most obvious is that the cloud forms, vanishes, and then reappears. A simple explanation could be that the pilot varied the throttle, perhaps unintentionally, resulting in a short slowdown of the aircraft.

An explanation which involves the physics is based on the idea that the cloud formation can cause changes in the lift and drag on the aircraft. In fact, Professor Schnerr at the Universität Karlsruhe (now at Technische Universität München) has shown that the lift and drag coefficients can undergo large variations due to the condensation. These scientific results are consistent with the anecdotal evidence provided by pilots who report considerable banging and bumping when large clouds are formed. This is over and above the buffeting familiar to fighter pilots as they enter the transonic regime without condensation. The disappearance of the cloud may just be due to a decrease in speed due to the added drag at constant throttle.

A second feature is the fact that the condensation first appears above the aircraft when the cloud reforms (and possibly when it forms). Of course, it is expected that the cloud should first form in the low pressure region which is necessarily above any lifting aircraft. However, the largest pressure perturbations are expected to be very near the aircraft. Hence the lowest pressures and therefore the cloud formation ought to be at the aircraft surface. We can give the usual atmospheric turbulence arguments, but without much conviction. Bob Harrington did point out that there may be flow disturbances generated by the ship which could cause an unanticipated Mach number or pressure distribution. I like this better than the generic turbulence argument.

Another feature is the formation of the condensation cloud over the cockpit. You can see this just after the cloud reforms and just as the aircraft passes the photographer.

But Im pretty sure this A380 aint going supersonic ... So, what's happening in this picture? whats the phenomen called?

Just to add, my understanding of this phenomenon is that its quite simple to explain. The air pressure over the wing drops due to Bernoulli effect (increased velocity, lower pressure) & that what makes the aircraft fly. Under some conditions, this is below the dew point and a cloud forms temporarily in that region where the pressure is below the dew point. I think its almost the same as lenticular clouds.

Sometime you will see it when an aircraft is banking heavily or and has a low speed, high drag configuration. Also moisture content of air is a factor.

The vertical spikes when an aircraft goes supersonic is the same thing, the condesation is just revealing the areas of low pressure during the transistion

Sorry, bit of a miscommunication there. That's the De Havilland Comet airliner which I believe was the DH 106. The DH 88 Comet was a twin prop long distance racer from 1934.

F-82 Twin Mustang

The F-82 was the last propeller-driven fighter acquired in quantity by the USAF. It appears to be two Mustang fuselages on one wing, but in reality it was a totally new design. Its purpose was to provide a fighter carrying a pilot and co-pilot/navigator to reduce fatigue on long-range bomber ecsort missions. Delivery from production did not begin until early 1946, too late for WW II. After WW II, radar-equipped F-82s were used quite extensively by the Air Defense Command as replacements for the P-61 night fighter.

During the Korean War, Japan-based F-82s were among the first USAF aircraft to operate over Korea. The first three North Korean airplanes destroyed by U.S. forces were shot down by all-weather F-82G interceptors on June 27, 1950.

Why didnt you just post every A/C the OZ airforce flys???


Buy the way I do thing The F-111 is hot.
Other ac that i think are hot are pritty much The F-14 F-15 F-16 F-18A-F, The A-4 is hot as hell, The A-10 people say are ugly but I love them becuase of what they can do plus i think they are hot, The F-22 is a sweet bird I just think it has all the right lines, the F-23 would have been sweet. Lets see what else the AV-8B+ is oh so sweet. The whole Su-27 family give me a hard on. Mirage 2000 those are Super dooper.

For older birds there is somthing about the old WWII fighters that are just stunning, mabey its the fact that its the pinical of pistion ac.
The korian war era fighters are really awsome, i mean come on the F-86 F-80 the Mig-15... Wow
I love F-101 Voodoo's too, and F-104's too.

So many hot fighter so little time. I could be here all day. Im not going to even get started on any other type of aircraft.

The original #184 (http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showpost.php?p=2423876&postcount=184) message is now correct.

In my opinion it is Brewster Buffalo:

http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/8065/finland3sm1.png (http://imageshack.us)

US navys first monoplane. In their use it was called "flying coffin" and navy wanted to get rid of it. When it entered finnish use, it was called gentlemens airplane. With these 44 planes, 432 enemy planes was shot down. One of these planes, BW-393, was credited with 41 kills in total, possibly making it the fighter aircraft with the greatest number of victories in the history of air warfare.

Reputation in US navy came because they tried to fight japanese planes with WWI style dogfight, it wasnt actually planes fault.

for the start of wwII itwas a good plane, but slightly underpowered and sluggish didn't do well against zero's and zekes, and I guess it wouldn't do well to more modern versions of the me109
Most planes downed in one day was when the german invaded Holland, they met our 40mm bofors flak cannon, which is still used today (exept now it is radar guided) we downed most of the german air transport fleet moving paratroopers in, off course we let most of the germans get out first.... (bit too polite eh?)rofl

Finns used the plane 1941-1945. Messerschmitt bf 109 was also in finnish use, gained 667 air victories, while losing 34. But in my opinion score of brewster is more amazing.

It's an f-16I from the ireali airforce, they upgraded the f-16's they have for what I heard to be able to strike deep in Iran/Seria. Hence the extra feul tanks on the side of the hull.

Fokker the manufacturer of the G1 had factories in America, which he sold to Lokheed just before the war..... thus the lightning was based on the G1 idea.
The G1 was like the typhoon buit of wood. It was very fast for its time and manouvred as a fighter. had 4 guns in the nose and one in the tail but that gun often was removed (or like the dutch bombers replaced by a black broomstick to fool the enemy)
And yes there is a G1 replica at the air force museum in Soesterberg.
Most of the G1's were destroyed by a bombardment on Schiphol, the Dutch airforce didn't see the necessety to place them in shelters and had them ligned up nicely :(
The Dutch Airforce/Air Artilelry destroyed 3/4 of the german air transport capacity with the bofors 40mm and dutch fighters.

Do you mean the Typhoon or the Mosquito? As the Mossie was built out of wood and was one of the best planes of the war, it also bears more than a passing similarity to the G1.

Do you mean the Typhoon or the Mosquito? As the Mossie was built out of wood and was one of the best planes of the war, it also bears more than a passing similarity to the G1.

ah sorry confused should've been mosquito. (was looking at a site with typhoon pics.... that's a beaty too!)

True, the Typhoon looks like a Spitfire on Steroids, was a brilliant fighter bomber :)

The G1 was Partly made of wood, parts of if were aluminium, like the front of the central pod, and the tailbooms. It was originally slated to get rolls royce merlin engines, which would've made it the fastest fighter, but the engines were unavailable.

The Mosquito was a pretty cool old plane, remember watching Mosquito Squadren as a kid. Cool flick.

More on the G.I.
Info:

The Fokker G.I was a Dutch heavy twin-engined fighter plane comparable in size and role to the German Messerschmitt Bf 110 and the British Mosquito.

At its introduction at the Paris Air Show of 1936, even before its first flight, the G.I was a sensation due to its heavy armament of a row of 8 machine guns in the nose and 1 in a rear turret; it was given the nickname Reaper, or le faucheur in French. Its twin-engine, twin-boom design was later used by the Americans for the Lockheed P-38 Lightning.

Besides the Dutch air force, several foreign air forces showed an interest in the G.I. The aircraft was originally built to a French Air Force specification, but the French preferred French-built aircraft such as the Breguet 69.
The Spanish Air Force ordered 36 aircraft. After the mobilisation of 1939, these single seat versions were taken over by the Dutch air force. However, the Dutch had difficulties finding armament for these aircraft, and in 1940, only four of them were combat-ready.
The Danish ordered 12 G.Is for use as dive bombers. These were to be built under license, and were not completed because of the german invasion. The German intelligence service thought some of the planes were completed, but none ever was
Other interested countries were Sweden (17 ordered), Belgium, Turkey, Hungary and Switzerland. Due to the German attack on the Netherlands, no aircraft were delivered to these countries.

Another classic Fokker aircraft I like is the D.XXI

Info:
The Fokker D.XXI fighter was designed in 1935 for use by the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army Air Force (ML-KNIL).
As such, it was designed as a cheap and small, but rugged aircraft, which had respectable performance for its time.
Entering service in the early years of World War II, it provided yeoman work for both the Luchtvaartafdeeling (Dutch Army Aviation Group) and the Finnish Air Force also a few were built by the Carmoli factory before the factory fell into Nationalist hands during the Spanish Civil War.
The Fokker D.XXI was Powered a Bristol Mercury radial driving a 3-blade two pitch airscrew.
The new Fokker proved to be an extremely sturdy aircraft capable of attaining a speed of 700 km/h in a dive.

In 1936 a few were used by the Spanish Republic.
Although the order by the ML-KNIL was cancelled, the Luchtvaartafdeeling (Dutch Army Air Force before World War II) placed an order of 36 aircraft, which were all delivered in time to participate in the war against the Germans in May of 1940.
The Fokker D.XXI, although outnumbered, much slower and more lightly armed than the Bf 109, performed surprisingly well in dogfights, due to its maneuverability.

The Fokker D.XXI performed better and for much longer in the Finnish Air Force, which had acquired a number of licence-built fighters prior to the start of the Winter War. Against the aircraft of the Soviet Air Force, the Fokker was more evenly matched, and its rugged design with a radial engine and fixed undercarriage made it very suitable for Finnish conditions.
During the Continuation War (1941-44) the Finnish State Aircraft Factory (Valtion Lentokonetehdas, VL) also built some fifty D.XXIs with the Swedish-built Pratt & Whitney R-1535 Twin Wasp Junior as the Bristol Mercury was in short supply. These can be identified by their longer cockpit glazing, smooth cowl, and large ventral air intake under the cowl.
