Taiwan president uncharacteristically stuttering all over place after F16 down.

This guy , a former PLA guy analyze that J16 with electromagnetic missile took down the F16.

Before F16 down, there was a streak of light being witnessed.
He's not former PLA, and his channel and content do not meet SDF's standards. Here's a hint: it's best not to share content from someone who focuses heavily on political drama.

Electromagnetic missile :D lol did the J-16 shine a flashlight on it? Maybe he means EW (haven't bothered to watch the video).

The lack of details on the Taiwanese F-16 going down is curious though. Is it just being withheld or is it actually a case of the Taiwanese military and authorities have no idea what happened to it i.e. no communications at all and F-16 just "vanished" like the Japanese F-35 was lost without communication. Some magical EW wonder weapon would be cool. Could explain Japanese, Taiwanese, and Indian mystery losses of F-35, F-16, and Su-30MKI. All lost without communication suddenly like the flying saucer that shut down Iranian F-4 avionics in that Tehran incident many decades ago. Haha just playing but the speculation is certainly going to fill those voids.

If there is ever some weapon worth developing, it would be weaponised EMP. After testing it in controlled environments, of course field tests would need to be conducted. After all military electronics are hardened and who else would be more of a challenge than American equipment.

Sounds like you know what's going on
What's your take why the F16 went down?
No stress call, nothing indicated before went down.
Witness on the ground spotted a flash of light.

Use some common sense.
There are so many other possibilities that are more likely than "PLAAF secretly shot down ROCAF fighter using electromagnetic missile".

Even just writing that made me feel like I had regressed in maturity by 20 years.


Choose your battles.

EM bomb or missile , whatever
What's wrong with some one post a hypothesis of what happen yet you have no gut to post your hypothesis afraid of people will take shots at you. Boo.
Anyway, the main thing to take away from that video is taiwan president stuttering horribly at press conference. That guy recorded in his video. I had a good laugh when I heard her speech.
Did you watch and listen to that portion?

Went off radar immediately after takeoff, single seater, nighttime, now they cannot find him or the plane?

He defected to China

That's your old problem, tidalwave. Your scientific thinking is stuck in the ancient Greek ages where people post multiple hypotheses out of thin air and basically debate to find which one is correct rather than gather evidence. And you think that having no answer is apparently worse than wildly guessing and posting conspiracy theories because to you, they're at least "something." "You don't like my answer? Then what's your answer? You have no answer? Then I'm right!" That's your caveman "scientific" logic. In modern science, no answer is the correct answer when there is no evidence and when you post a hypothesis, it needs to be supplied with credible evidence. A jet went missing on a training flight; that's all the information we have. "It was shot shot down by a secret missile." "Aliens beamed it up." "The Kraken took it under the ocean." "The pilot accidentally flew it through a warp dimensional rift." etc... save it. Conspiracy theories with shaky anecdotal evidence are garbage and far worse than remaining silent.

If the F16 crashed in the sea, then of course it’s going to take them some time to find the wreck and recover the flight recorders to figure out what happened.

The fact that the F16 went down on the eastern side of Taiwan pretty much rules out any Chinese involvement as far as I am concerned.

It feels incredible silly for us to even be entertaining these half baked tin-foil hat nonsense conspiracy theories.

I mean, these are not even good conspiracies to start with. It’s too far fetched to be remotely plausible yet not crazy enough to even be good comic relief. It’s just sad really.

What does that say about Taiwan?
Taiwan president at the memorial for the pilot died at at F5 crash and this happened.
Dejavu.

Don't let sadness overwhelm you. Do you think they will continue to intercept incoming PLA planes or they will be too scared to fly anymore?

Yes exactly ... you take the most unlikely and fantastic theory, claim it with some chest-bumping and then you feel offended for being turned down.

Honestly, I know some don't want to hear it since they think they are very clever, smart or whatever but we are indeed not a fan-boy forum and at least as long as I'm a moderator of SDF such BS won't be accepted.

If you don't like this, then go and look for another forum.
