    My source on the 8MB broadband on the QE is from page 18 of "maximum value of the F-35" by Justin Bronk of RUSI.

    Every documented comments that I have seen from pilots who have flown 4th gen fighters and then have the opportunity to witness the capability of the sensor fusion in the F-35 all have the same Saul like type expression i.e. Saul's conversion experience when he was on the road to Damascus and his eyes were opened by God. We don't have privy to what God's eye view would mean but "incredible" is not an over statement. To Saul it was a miracle.

    Brumby I believe in miracles in biblical sense, so I'll respond in a separate post (right below), to separate The Acts of the Apostles from, well, the Joint Strike Fighter

    Brumby during your break from the SDF you missed this sequence:

    Feb 28, 2017
    further 'strengthened' Mar 5, 2017
    I'm showing you this in reference to the definition of "incredible", and in reference to the US Military spin-doctoring, which sometimes produces output that might be hard to believe even for brainwashed individuals

    EDIT I've now checked all these links still work, telling a truly incredible story LOL

    If you are suggesting "incredible' is grounded on the high kill ratio which may be just spin I can agree that there is the possibility of spin coming off Red Flag. The tag incredible is a cumulation of evidence over a long period of time that the F-35 is indeed incredible in its capability based on first hand accounts. This consideration is divorce from the other factors such as it being overbudget, behind schedule and that currently it has problem coping with scaling.

    There is talk of UK building fleet of SSK to ease the pain on the SSN fleet

    Good idea also more port visits it’s essier without nuclear powered submarines
