Они уже устали ждать, как изголяются, стервецы, а у нас с прошлого года некому принимать решения...
- А зачем другие? Он отлично себя зарекомендовал и работы по его совершенствованию никогда не останавливались:А двигатели остались такие же как и у F-15I?
тяги маловато на фоне GE 132го, который правда на F-15 не ставят.- А зачем другие? Он отлично себя зарекомендовал и работы по его совершенствованию никогда не останавливались:
The US Air Force (USAF) is set to acquire the eight Boeing F-15EX Advanced Eagle fighters in fiscal year 2020 (FY 2020) as it requested as compromise policy and spending bills approved the purchase.
- The US Air Force is a step closer to acquiring its first batch of F-15EX aircraft after legislators approved the purchase
- A budget expert expects the spending bill to be signed into law most likely within the next week
The compromise defence authorisation bill that passed both the House and Senate permitted the USAF to purchase eight aircraft. President Donald Trump is expected to sign this bill into law imminently.
The compromise defence spending bill has passed the House and Mackenzie Eaglen, resident fellow for the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) think tank in Washington, DC, told Jane's on 18 December that she fully expects it to be signed into law, most likely within the next week. This bill provides roughly USD1.05 billion in procurement funding for six aircraft. It also moves USD364.4 million into research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) funding for the procurement of two test aircraft, and provides half of what was requested for non-recurring engineering.
The spending bill stipulates that no more than USD64.8 million for long-lead materials may be provided until USAF Secretary Barbara Barrett provides reports to congressional defence committees that include: an approved programme acquisition strategy, a capability production document, a test and evaluation master plan, and a post-production fielding strategy.
Have Glass is the code name for a series of RCS reduction measures for the F-16 fighter. Its primary aspect is the addition of an indium-tin-oxide layer to the gold tinted cockpit canopy. This is reflective to radar frequencies, while it may seem odd, adding a radar reflective coating actually reduces the plane's visibility to radar. An ordinary canopy would let radar signals straight through where they would strike the many edges and corners inside and bounce back strongly to the source, the reflective layer dissipates these signals instead. Overall, Have Glass reduces an F-16's RCS (radar-cross section) by some 15 percent. It's applied with the same CASPER (Computer Aided Spray Paint Expelling Robot) system used for the F-22. The paint has a distinct metallic finish to it and has a dirty faded weathered appearance. Here's what it looks like on a ViperЧего?
