  1. Bell's candidate for the US Army's "Future Attack Recon Aircraft'". Even if it doesn't win the contract, it still looks pretty good. Reminds me of an update Comanche: https://www.bellflight.com/products/bell-360
  2. I suppose if North American can conceive, design, build, and fly the Mustang in five months time, this should be doable
  3. "Wildly optimistic" is the thought that comes to mind: https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/2019/09/16/the-us-air-forces-radical-plan-for-a-future-fighter-could-field-a-jet-in-5-years/
  4. Presumably the same drab grey paint scheme? https://www.dsca.mil/sites/default/files/mas/poland_19-49.pdf
  5. Is one kit just a rebox of the other or are they distinctly separate kits?
  6. I would have thought that all the NH90's issues would have been addressed by now.
  7. Some time ago the Dutch reported significant corrosion issues with their NH-90's following some at-sea deployments. Presumably this has since been addressed? https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/germany-picks-nh90-to-replace-sea-lynx-460052/
  8. Looks like that scheme was applied with brushes and rattlecans.
  9. Were Jags ever painted in desert camo for any of the Red Flags?
  10. So what are the odds of this sale actually going through? https://www.janes.com/article/89974/argentina-selects-korean-fa-50-fighter
  11. Apparently they're still working through the paratrooper issues: https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2019/07/23/french-a400m-can-almost-drop-enough-paratroopers/
  12. Is the paint itself glossy or is it a gloss topcoat?
  13. If these helicopters are so necessary, one wonders why the French don't buy a few for themselves? https://www.janes.com/article/89770/uk-extends-chinook-mission-to-mali
  14. Well, there was an XFV-12: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockwell_XFV-12
  15. I think the "V" designation can refer to both short- and vertical takeoff aircraft (OV-10 Bronco, for example).
