typhoon pilot explains how the CAPTOR-E AESA radar gives EFT the information superiority through sensor fusion and massive radar.

Striker 2 helmet second only to the F-35 helmet. combat info and targeting is integrated into the helmet giving excellent situational awareness. the pilot can target. It includes tactical information (in wide angle colour display and night vision). Essentially a heads up diplay on helmet.

compare this with the F-35 helmet

Hmm I was thinking what if Bangladesh got second hand Harriers from a certain nation and when BN finally gets an LHD it can deploy it's Harriers from that carrier.

I don't know the exact price of an Harrier but I saw somewhere it's like 30 million usd

Rather see BN with a massive and extremly potent submarine fleet. LHD is an open target and will requiere escort vessels ( themselves open target ).

10-12 mixture of high tech low tech subs and BN will rule the bay

We better rule the Bay of Bengal by 2030+ or else no more resources for us. But yeah Subs make more sense in the long run or maybe getting TOT might help.

Actually BD better start Doing everything TOT improving on those tech and ultimately producing its own version.

In the recent episode involving the Chinese ambassador, it clearly shows foreign powers are attempting to influence the BD foreign policy. Ok. BD dodged a bullet with the Chinese ambassador. But the game is just beginning. The Chinese transformed the Awami league from in the closet India supporters to officially mute and neutral . This has exposed a severe weakness in BD foreign policy. Not that I am saying reducing Indian influence is bad thing! But I think you understand what I mean.

The only way, BD will be able to maintain a independent foreign policy is if they start developing their own tech to meet their own needs. Self sufficient. I don't mean just military but economic fields as well. Therefore become less reliant on foreign countries for access to high tech . Because foreign powers will use this as leverage to sway the foreign policy of BD to their side.

Ok today China/ USA/ Turkey/ put-any-name-here is not attaching strings. tomorrow ? one year from now ? 10 years from now ? Maybe the strings being attached are tolerable . how long before they become intolerable ?

nah Bro we need a maritime patrol aircraft (and a decent one capable of ASW and anti-shipping) before we have fleet air arm.

Harriers will be put out of service by USMC (which will get F-35B) and i doubt we could get them plus Royal navy harriers were retired a couple of years ago. The italians will get rid of theirs as well.
MAybe the production line has been closed.
this leaves us with F-35B which we will never get our hands on unless we sell out to US.

if a naval fighter is ever inducted, its best if we have a land based naval fighter with long range like the russian navy

i'm not suggesting su-30sm , but similar land based naval jets that have long legs and long range Anti-ship missiles.

Thoughts about BAF chief visiting US?

Meeting with USAF Chief of staff.

Visiting LockMart and Boeing.

Any ideas?
Jukto rashtrer shathey Bangladesher shomporko aro progarho hobey.

I think USAF Chief of staff may have aerospace "offers" for this Hasina relative. He will be briefed on them. QUAD is lobbying hard with Bangladesh.

There is a chance we might be getting Lockheed's F-16 Block 60.

But in all reality they will offer us this subsonic thing and call it a day (T-7 Red Hawk),



Bangladesh in my opinion should not throw in its fate with QUAD.

Indians will have full access to our cantonments and territory under QUAD.

And Chinese investments in Bangladesh will grind to a halt. There goes our future.

I am disappointed at Chinese foot dragging over Rohingya issue, this was a crucial fork in the road.

This is the perfect excuse India and Hasina have to go with the QUAD.

Looks like countries better choose and choose fast.

Wow if US plans to keep f16s beyond 2030 it’s not going to be a bad choice for bd to get in it.
joining quad will probably be part of the deal for a discount. I don’t know if we will take it.

Well in terms of NGAD all I can say is the USAF generals can dream of "Khayali Pulao" or "Swapna ka Rasgulla" all they want but there has to be concrete funding. For either manned or unmanned craft.

This NGAD thing is facing some tough headwinds in the Hill. More to come I guess, but not really relevant to us when we are probably looking at F-16's...just my take.

I am very confident that China's 6th generation fighter equivalent will be ready for service by mid 2030s.

They were already researching it before J-20 came into service in 2017 and there has been some information already leaked about its variable cycle engine. This is something it will share with the UK's Tempest fighter that is due for service in 2035 and I think the US 6th gen fighter will also use them.

The military tech gap between US and China is slowly closing and not increasing as some imagine.
