Well, I don't think these recent arguments for a new clean sheet 4.5~5 gen fighter jet instead of buying the F-35s has any merit. Fmho its actually very contradicting in itself.
Apart from that, I never thought having KF-X like aircraft for ROKAF was ever a bad idea so there's no need for extra validation for that.
Well he hates F-15 because it costs a lot. What do you expect from such person?Pierre spey is a dumbass he was against BVR missiles and radars and wanted the F-16 to have only Sidewinders and a minigun. Thank God he didnt get his way.
I mean we need to give him some credit of taking part in the figther mafia thing, though the problem is modern day F-16s are nothing like what the fighter mafia originally came up with. Now it has become a pseudo F-15 with an equivalent complexity and comparable cost with a bit less capability. The gap in CPFH between those narrowed down and came pretty close as well as the flyaway costs.LOL - you know nothing.
The F-16 was designed by Harry Hillaker influenced by Col John Boyd and his EM ( Energy–maneuverability) theory.
Sprey was working on the A-10* while he occupied the office next to Col John Boyd at the Pentagon.
Like I said before, find me someone who has flown, fought with or maintained the F-35 that has criticized the aircraft.
I'm not interested in the opinion of dinosaurs and his outdated senile notions.
No offence but I'm also not interested in the opinion an uninformed Pakistani such as yourself.
* at the time Sprey official position at the Pentagon was analyst to the Secretary of defense.
He assisted Avery Kay the chief designer of the A-10 unbeknownst to the Pentagon or the Air force.
It was a chance meeting in a bar with a loudmouthed Air Force fighter pilot that set Harry J. Hillaker on a path that led to the design of the F-16 fighter jet, arguably the best military airplane of the jet age.www.f-16.net
One should note that someone that comes up with a great idea once doesn't necessarily mean he/she will do so again, although a lot of people here doesn't seem to understand that.
