The helmet sights a thing now and more than one fighter pilot has stated it'd be game over as soon as they've mutually targeted one another.we shall see my young friend, actually I'm thinking your screen name should have been "Lazer MAN!", well I'm gonna be faithful to real life and remain a platform centrist man, you can't do much without a solid platform, you might end up with another F-117 which while performing admirably, proved to be far to narrowly focused to stay relevant in this dangerous new world.
As for laser man, I prefer CAPTAIN ZAP! But, yeah, having worked on them, I can see that. But also include supercomputers, rockets, exoplanets, material science and now biopharma. I'm good and I get around.
We will have to watch. However, there's a lot of resistance to change on many fronts: *cough*UCLASS*cough* And the furball is secksay.as to your popular viewpoint that the days of the furball are over, The Gents in the USAF and Marine Corp, possibly to a lesser extent the USN, (yes they did found the fighter weapon's school) are still "doing the do", you'd have a hard time selling your maneuverability is a non-sequitur, so we will indeed watch history unfold.
One does not come to NorCal for steak. There are a million things to eat, but steak isn't the best here. If he wants to put something on the grill, have him find a tritip roast. Do it carefully. Almost, but not quite southern BBQ style. That said, there are some good small, local butchers but your wallet is one of the things that gets chopped up and served back to you haute cuisine style afterwards (cuz so little is left over afterwards). Even so, the average T bone in NM was far, far better and cheaper (!) than in California.Hope you are grilling something "tasty" on the Bar-B, a cousin from California told me it damn near impossible to get a good steak in Kali.... he's just North of Half Moon Bay... have a great day Bub!
