You want fast?
Amazing that they got hypersonic speeds on such a (relatively) short track. Must have been one hell of a rocket to push it that fast.
Pretty cool BFM video someone posted on Hoggit (link):
I find it really cool to see the control surfaces dancing and doing their thing.
Some of the maneuvers in this one
Snap from the video, never seen a g-suit that covers the upper torso.
Does this G-suit make me look fat?
I wore it for the Eurofighter.
Interesting… can’t say I’m too surprised to see/hear about it, as it seems like a natural progression of the g-suit. I guess it’s something that hasn’t caught on with the USMC.
I still don’t see what the big deal is. Set two valves (well ports) in, probably easiest to do femoral/iliac and probably something around the aorta/vena cava and just pressurize the bloodstream. I mean really how hard is this… (that’s a joke for anyone concerned)
Just some Swedish military video - not much aviation but I love the landscape!
Army Hunter Battalion
The army hunter battalion behaves unconventionally and operates with the help of its own weapon systems or through the introduction of attack aircraft or artillery. Properly utilized, the hunter battalion can cause systemic collapse of the opponent’s most important functions. To avoid detection, the dressing usually occurs in small units, in groups or in platoons. A hunter is a soldier who is persistent and has a great will to solve the task, often at the expense of personal convenience. Fighting and scouting in the most difficult terrain and climate conditions is the hunter battalion’s signature. The army hunter battalion is located in Arvidsjaur and is part of the Norrbotten Regiment, I 19.
A friend of mine did his military service there.
I was a crew chief in the Airforce.
Talking to him about his experiences I remember questioning if we served on the same planet…
Helicopter refueling just seems really dangerous …
I have watched that clip so many times bit it still terrifies me every time. Man I really want one of those 53s in dcs. So badly
That last one was emasculatingly painful…
