Ha…you’re right…like a turret defense game…


#82

Looks like the Rheinmetall Mantis system.
So mainly meant as defense against drones and missiles.


#83

Looks very Skynet!

I might be able to land a Hornet in Bullet Time™… :thinking: (feature request!)


#86

… and include rewind feature to make it more appealing for generation XBox?

This is fascinating…

Here is the F-35 Aerial Demo today at the Paris Air Show

Loved the wiggly duck feet it gets when doing that high AoA pass by…


#91

Yes I loved seeing the low speed descending corkscrew with sideslip and float.

Here is the Aviationist article that teased the flight with a chart of the show. LM is working on 40+ Billion dollar deal so fangs are out!

Just think of it that you now have an expendable, fearless, perfectly loyal ZSU-23-4. Track on the smoke plume and you’ll probably be walking into the engagement zone of Killbot #2 who’s waking up from his nap with some hot morning motor oil and a side of your targeting information :wink:


#93

Agreed. I wonder how high the top of that box is.


#94

I wondered that as well. At one point there was a straight vertical down and based on the ceiling it had to be the low show. Thrilling for the crowd I am sure.


#95

Oh ya, this is like when you’re working on your car and all the neighborhood beer drinking garage dwellers get a whiff of your tools and come to see what’s going on … only 10 times more attractive. :grin:


#96

I just wonder if it’s smart to have that stuff on youtube unfiltered…
Dunno. But bloody hell it’s cool.


#97

It’s pretty standard stuff when handling ground aircraft, except for all the weapons and such, but grounding, chocks, audio jacks etc, all very common.


#98

:kissing_heart:
Thanks- I mostly see stuff form the Simulator’s building so it’s all pretty intense for me!

Canada’s JTF2 has shattered the longest kill shot record during operations in Iraq … 3450 meters (over 2 miles!) …
