    There you go again with your obfuscation and off tangent replies.

    According to the special AWST edition on “the state of stealth”, it basically affirms what is generally known on RCS reduction. RCS reduction is 90 % shaping and 10 % RAM. Engine contributes to 60 % of RCS issue. If you have no appropriate shaping and no engine blocker you basically have cow droppings.

    Switching gear back to the F-35. A couple of pictures on the F-35 display cockpit.

    Inside the F-35 cockpit. The display screen is configurable by the pilot.

    the US had almost a half of million KIA during WW2, so I'll now protest against

    #7268 Anlsvrthng, Yesterday at 9:31 PM

    reporting (later I may edit it in Report Window) flamebaity suggestion of the US making profit out of WW2

    first I finish here: I'm sometimes critical about the Pentagon and certain military projects including the F-35, but #7268 Anlsvrthng, Yesterday at 9:31 PM
    is trolling with a scandalous reference to the US involvement in WW2
    EDIT reported that outrage

    briefly compared to about one dozen pictures in Internet, and the view of the joystick appears to be new (they covered it in older pictures)

    what's the source anyway?

    "The military’s open-air test ranges lack the capacity to fully test the F-35’s advanced capabilities, so the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) office is relying on the activation of the Joint Simulation Environment (JSE)." etc.

    Taken from a book on the F-35.

    It is a requirement probably only unique to the US. The rule is they are to test its capabilities against future threats that do not exist as of today. It is not easy to simulate a future threat that can actually be tested realistically at a practical level. That is the reason why they have to use JSE.

    I would've thought "open-air test ranges" Today at 10:45 AM
    had been big enough in the US, but who knows what's going on

    The simplest solution to decide who right is to get a copy of F-35 and Su-34, and with X band radars compare them to each other.

    Easy, isn't it?

    Otherwise all that we have is the data from the procurement strategy of different countries. (follow the money )

    The clever comments of everyone from high school textbooks doesn't prove / falsify anything.

    into the Report Window will go:

    thank you for removing a horrendous claim the account 'Anlsvrthng' had made earlier and I reported;
    now I point to your attention the account 'Anlsvrthng' keeps trying to derail
