You can learn all you like. The problem here is trying to make a platform what it is not. World over they have specialized platforms which are test beds for newer technologies and if this is what you are implying then I have no problem. But changing current block with such technologies is a waste of resources we do not have. This is my last post on the topic.
Listen bro it’s a evolving project semi stealth mean one step further towards complete indigenous stealth aircraft.just study f16 progress till block 72 you will find how they increase the size n shape of that plane as compare to first block. Any semi mean low observable but for PAC it’s a learning process toward fifth n sixth generation
Hi I am under the impression that bubble cannopy has less return emission as the only part emitting back radar waves is the seat and pilot whereas in case of JF17 canopy the rear area of the pilot also remit back radar waves.Hi,
You are correct in your comments---. There are different levels of stealth and Paf has tried a few methods with quite a bit of success over the decades.
The size of the JF 17 and side intakes are another attempt to make it appear " stealthier " . Another effort is a smaller flatter canopy rather than a bubble canopy---. The side intakes rather than the belly intake help reduce the signature of the aircaft---.
The experimentation with the mirage aircrafts was a successful episode of making stealthier aircraft---.
Reflection heat. For that reason the glass canopy maybe gold plated.Hi I am under the impression that bubble cannopy has less return emission as the only part emitting back radar waves is the seat and pilot whereas in case of JF17 canopy the rear area of the pilot also remit back radar waves.
However, I am not an expert on the matter so I might be wrong.
Can you please give a little more details how bubble canopy has more radar reflection as compared to the older designs of thunder.
