      @cladarreon battle My flying aircraft carrier is a blimp. It runs on a hybrid of solar and jet engines. I designed it to be as fast and effeicent as possible! But what would it be without weapons It's fully armed with Cannons, Anti aircraft missiles, and Flares!!

    The radar jamming string thing reminds me of a technique the allies used to avoid sound guided torpedoes in WW2. They just basically just tied a big speaker (or some sort of sound emitter) to a cable on the ship that reached some distance behind it when thrown, so the torpedo would just follow that instead of the ship. They basically rendered a state of the art high end piece of military equipment useless with just a speaker and some string

    This video is by far the best military tech video I’ve seen. It has the perfect combination of real footage, animations, and diagrams. I learned about capabilities I never knew exited before - like that radar missile countermeasure. I also liked how the explanation of the phased radar array included destructive interference so we could get an idea of the underlying physics. Overall all these details help you actually imagine how amazing using an F-35 would feel. Really appreciate all the work Real Engineering put into this one.

      Getting the 'unparalleled' situational awarness with hud in the helmet is already an old technology that existed for decades now, a F16 pilots in the 90's could already lock AA targets just by looking at them. Datalink is also an old tech. Well most of the F35 techs are pretty old and overpriced... Did you said it was by far the best military tech you've seen ?

    I remember watching the JSF competition documentary on Discovery as a kid. The Boeing entrant had a more elegant and mechanically simpler lifting mechanism; the Boeing diverted thrust from the engine vs the Lockheed entrant that used a separate lift fan powered by a crankshaft/clutch that was more complicated (ie breakable).

    A friend of mine is a mechanic in the Royal Navy. When they bought their F-35s from America, they sent a squad of mechanics to learn how to maintain the jets, and he was one of them. Currently he has been deployed over there for over 5 years and they still have more to learn, this jet is no joke.

    You have done your homework. These features are hidden within the deepest of interviews and only touched in hour + long videos. However you’re able to do it so clearly, quickly, and in such quantity, that not only is this plane impressive , but this is video is. Great Job.

      @Tiavor Kuroma the F-35A costs roughly 70M USD
      The latest F-16 (Block 70 - 72) costs around 64M USD
      The latest F-18 costs around 67M USD
      The F15EX costs around 110M USD
      In the latest red flag exercises the F35 had a kill-ratio of 15:1 to 20:1 vs F16 and F15.
      So in air-to-air, which it was not specifically designed for, it vastly outperforms even a dedicated air superiority fighter.

      @Alessandro Dodi It is a very serious error that the video simply denies a basic feature from the PESA what even a mechanically scanned radar is able to support on a lower level.

      @Militavia - Military Aviation & Air Defense Ahh thanks, i had a couple misconceptions about AESA. As for the error in the video, i think it's in a (relatively) minor detail and most people will never really dive into what PESA vs. AESA can do. Saying AESA is better in every way is probably enough for the detail level of a video like this.

      @Alessandro Dodi Te video contains a faculty error.
      In theory is MAYBE possible to form two beams with the AESA antenna array but it has no sense to do it.
      1. It would reduce the effective size of the antenna = lower antenna gain because of larger beamwidth = lower detection range
      2. If you form in the same time two beams how can you distinguish the reflections? Even if you modulate differently the two beams it can cause many issues.
      1+2 = An AESA radar always forms and transmits only a single beam just as the PESA radar.
      There is no real simultaneous scan.
      For both radars the scan happens quickly and two consecutive scan can have totally different elevation and azimuth.
      The video is 100% inaccurate where it suggest that a PESA radar can't follow many target simultaneously.
      For God sake even with mechanically scanned radar with limitation is possible to track more than one target for creating such accurate track which is usable for ARH guided missiles to generate MCG signals.
      The MiG-31 + Zaslon uses with PESA SARH guided missiles because the target illumination is so frequent that it made unnecessary to use the ARH guidance what the F-14 + AIM-54 had. The S-300/400 and Patriot also uses PESA radar to track MANY targets in the same time.
      Honestly. I have no idea what lectors check the technical content that such a major error could be in the script.
      I have to say I'm mad many times how many ppl. follow these channel because of the nice CGI and video insert while many times it is cleary visible that the creator does not have even wiki level knowledge. And lots of ppl. thinks that they learned something valuable. While they learned only false statements way to many times.

      @Tiavor Kuroma production costs are pretty low actually. Less than an F-15EX. And it is excellent at most tasks. I bet you've heard "muh jack of all trades master of none" from Pierre Sprey lol. Guess what? It's bullshit. Depending on the carried missiles it can be better at BVR than the F-22 (better radar, sensor fusion and SA). It's obviously way better at SEAD than the Horner or F-16 (mainly thanks to stealth). Only fair critique is relatively low A2G (PGMs) payload in stealth configuration but if you can send an F-16 or Strike Eagle then it means the SAM threat is low, stealth isn't very needed and you can use external hardpoints on the F-35.

    I wish there was some more detail about how the phased array antenna communicates with aircraft behind and around the aircraft, so in the opposite direction the array is pointing. Would also be interesting to know how it communicates without being detected, my first thought was a narrow beam from the array but I haven't a clue really.

    I think it's worth calling out how incredible it is that the F-35 can take off from an assault ship with a 258m deck. For comparison, a WW2 Essex class carrier (like the USS Yorktown) had a flight deck of 262m. So, this aircraft is capable of operating from ships smaller than WW2 carriers. Amazing.

    For the air going around the engine core with the animations of the Boeing 787 engine, it has its purpose. Turbofan engines have been designed to reduce fuel consumption as well as environmental noise. Fighter jets favor low bypass ratio to favor power at high consumption rate.

      @Ken Albertsen I agree, but RJMitchell designed the Spitfire after watching the way birds used their wings and Jiro Horikoshi did the same thing when he envisioned the Mitsubishi Zero. Edison worked on lightbulbs at the same time as Swan but Swan got there first so Edison went into partnership with him to let everyone see the light. Modern stealth fighters are limited in shape by math, which is why they're all quite similar. Science and coincidence are just as likely to produce new tech as industrial espionage, even today. Thinking about it too deeply would make getting out of bed in the morning a real effort. 👍

      @Ronald Keeling Thanks Ron for your mature reply. Most replies I get are things like, "you silly person, China has already known all those things for years." My view: Concepts are as important as details. To use a simplistic example: Imagine a Chinese plumber wanted to know how to make a steel h.w. tank work better. He goes to a Belgian's house and sees the guy's hw tank is wrapped in insulation. The Chinaman gets the concept: "Oh, perhaps wrapping the tank in some sort of loose material, like a sweater, will hold in the heat and make a better product. I should try that, and experiment with other materials." Sure it's simplistic example, but it can be applied to many things, even heat-seeking missiles. And westerners can garner ideas from Asians, like we did with gunpowder and ceramics, some time ago.
