What IF ? Sukhoi T-50 for the Pakistan Air Force

[Military Photoshops : News Desk] As tensions between Pakistan and US grow to a melting point, Pakistan has, in move which baffled the world politics moved away from its partnership from US in every aspect of IR from Trade to Military Co-operation. This moved has been welcomed by China and Russia alike. Pakistan is now looking to develop its trade relationships with its neighbouring countries, something which shouldve been done half a century ago. Russia in an unfathomable display of trust has permitted the release of its top most stealth fighter Sukhoi T-50 . Russia has also assured to play its part in resolving the Kashmir issue. Indian reservations have been buffed aside in part due to her recent honey moon with US and European nations and because Russians believe that if Kashmir Issue is resolved peacefully, India and Pakistan would have no reason to war any longer .

Two-Seater JF-17 Flies

AVIC and PAC were working on a two-seat version of JF-17 Thunder. The two-seat version will be used for conversion training and can also be adapted for combat roles. The development is not at the stage where the deliveries can be made. 

The single seat version was designed in such a way that a two-seat version could later be adapted

Superman has a new Ride : The F-22 Super Raptor

Superman's a new Ride : The F-22 Raptor
Superman when returned recently found himself severely inadequate to fight against the threats of modern age . The emergence Super powerful airborne radars means that Modern 5th generation fighters of the forces of Evil like the J-20 and T-50 would be able to Lock -on to Supermans Metal body from 100's of km away and be able to fire supersonic missiles at the American hero. Even if it comes to dogfight , Superman loses to modern Super cruising Engines equipped fighters which will go super sonic before Superman can say Sooooopermaaaan !

As a solution Lockheed Martin of US of A proposed the special F-22 Super Raptor equipped with solid state LASER to take the Supermans lethality to a new level .

Pakistan Air Force JF-17 Thunder Wallpaper [HD] [1024x768]

This wallpaper shows 3 Jf-17 from 3 different PAF sqadrons flying low in a close formation .

JF-17 Thunder is an advanced, light-weight, all weather, day / night multi-role fighter aircraft; developed as a joint venture between Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC), Kamra and Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation (CAC) of China. It possesses excellent air-to-air and air-to-surface combat capabilities. The state-of-the art avionics, optimally integrated sub-systems, computerized flight controls and capability to employ latest weapons provides decisive advantage to JF-17 over adversaries of same class. This, all weather, multi-role light combat fighter has remarkable high combat manoeuvre ability at medium and low altitude. With effective firepower, agility and combat survivability, the aircraft is likely to emerge as a potent platform for any air force.

Japan goes shopping for the troubled JSF

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress April 30 of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Japan for a possible sale of an initial four F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Conventional Take-Off and Landing (CTOL) aircraft with an option to purchase an additional 38 F-35 CTOL aircraft.
The estimated cost is $10 billion.
All aircraft will be configured with the Pratt and Whitney F-135 engines, and 5 spare Pratt and Whitney F-135 engines.
Other Aircraft Equipment includes: Electronic Warfare Systems, Command, Control, Communication, Computers and Intelligence/Communication, Navigational and Identifications (C4I/CNI), Autonomic Logistics Global Support System (ALGS), Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS), Flight Mission Trainer, Weapons Employment Capability, and other Subsystems, Features, and Capabilities, F-35 unique infrared flares, reprogramming center, and F-35 Performance Based Logistics. Also included: software development/integration, flight test instrumentation, aircraft ferry and tanker support, spare and repair parts, support equipment, tools and test equipment, technical data and publications, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $10 billion.
Japan is one of the major political and economic powers in East Asia and the Western Pacific and a key ally of the United States in ensuring the peace and stability of this region. The U.S. Government shares bases and facilities in Japan. This proposed sale is consistent with these U.S. objectives and with the 1960 Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security.
The proposed sale of aircraft and support will augment Japan’s operational aircraft inventory and enhance its air-to-air and air-to-ground self-defense capability. The Japan Air Self-Defense Force’s F-4 aircraft will be decommissioned as F-35’s are added to the inventory. Japan will have no difficulty absorbing these aircraft into its armed forces.
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
The prime contractors will be Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company in Fort Worth, Texas, and Pratt and Whitney Military Engines in East Hartford, Connecticut. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
Implementation of this proposed sale will require multiple trips to Japan involving U.S. Government and contractor representatives for technical reviews/support, programs management, and training over a period of 15 years.
U.S. contractor representatives will be required in Japan to conduct Contractor Engineering Technical Services (CETS) and Autonomic Logistics and Global Support (ALGS) for after-aircraft delivery.
There will be no adverse impact on the U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.

Red Arrows fly F-35 Lightening II

If you're not subject to the pre-Olympics hype that is currently everywhere in the UK (and I'm pleased to say that I'm not, as I'm writing this blog post from Moscow), then the fact that it's only (!) 100 days to go until the games open in London might have passed you by.

The Royal Air Force held back until today announcing that its Red Arrows aerobatic display team will play a part in the opening festivities for the games on 27 July. The team's full fleet of nine F-35B Lightening II will make their first ever appearance in the UK that day, visiting Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London and making flypasts in the "Big Battle" formation

It will be good to see the "Reds" making such high-profile public appearances after what was a terrible 2011. Flt Lt Jon Egging and Flt Lt Sean Cunningham both died in separate accidents during the display season, and some had speculated that perhaps the team would not return. This will also help reduce all the negative news surrounding the F-35B Lightening II program.

The Reds are currently in Cyprus preparing for a busy season, which is scheduled to kick off on 2 June and run through the end of September. Let's hope for an entertaining, but most of all a safe one in 2012.

Sukhoi Su-30SM: An Indian Gift to Russia’s Air Force

Russia’s Defense Ministry has ordered 30 heavy Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter planes. Given that the same model has been exported to India for more than 10 years, this choice seems both logical and pragmatic.
Thirty 30’s

The Defense Ministry and the Irkut Corporation, an affiliate of the United Aircraft Corporation, have signed a supply contract for 30 Su-30SM multirole fighter aircraft, a Defense Ministry spokesman told journalists Thursday, March 22. “Under the contract, Irkut Corporation will build for Russia’s Ministry of Defense 30 planes of this type by 2015,” he said.

Rumors that Irkut, a long-standing exporter, may supply several dozen fighter aircraft to the Russian Air Force began circulating late last year. Now the rumor has become a reality – a contract in black and white.

But why did the Defense Ministry choose the Su-30’s? After all, they have been mostly supplied to customers abroad rather than to the Russian Armed Forces, where just a few planes of this type are in use.

The Su-30, properly speaking, is an entire family of aircraft and the most famous Russian-made (not to be confused with Soviet-made) fighter plane outside of Russia. It was developed in the Soviet Union on the basis of the Su-27UB combat trainer aircraft as a command plane for Air Defense air regiments flying ordinary Su-27 interceptor aircraft.

In 1993, its export version, the Su-30K, was developed, sparking record demand and the sale of several hundred planes.

The family is further subdivided into two parts: the “Chinese” Su-30MKK/MK2, which were produced in Komsomolsk-on-Amur and exported to Venezuela, Indonesia, Uganda, Vietnam, and of course China; and the “Indian” Su-30MKI, manufactured in Irkutsk and purchased by India, Algeria and Malaysia.

The model ordered by the Russian military is a “localized” version of the “Indian” Su-30MKI. Earlier, Komsomolsk-on-Amur delivered to the Air Force four “localized” Su-30MK2’s.

A flying multi-tasker

As a basic platform for the multirole heavy fighter aircraft, the Su-30MKI is remarkable primarily for its universality. It boasts a so-called “open architecture”, making it relatively easy to add new systems in the basic electronic equipment and to use advanced guided weapons (supplied by different manufacturers).

The Su-30MKI sports a Russian radar and optic locator, French navigation and heads-up display systems, Israeli EW and weapon-guidance systems, and Indian computers.

The “Chinese” line is based on a different logic that prescribes parallel installation of new systems that fall short of full integration.

Most likely, the military is attracted by how easy it is to add different weapons and equipment to the Su-30MKI, transforming it into an attack fighter-bomber, a heavy interceptor aircraft, or something else.

Who placed the order?

It is hard to pinpoint who exactly ordered these 30 aircraft. The contract was signed by Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov and Irkut President Alexei Fedorov. After the signing ceremony, Serdyukov commented that the planes would “increase the Air Force’s combat power.”

By contrast, Fedorov went on record as saying last summer that the Defense Ministry was going to order 40 aircraft. Later the press reported, citing the Irkutsk aircraft plant’s general director Alexander Veprev, that the deliveries were likely to be made in two installments: the first 28 aircraft were intended for the Air Force and another 12 as an option for naval aviation. Air Force C-in-C Alexander Zelin confirmed the figure of 28 in fall 2011.

As we can see, the first batch of Sukhoi-30’s has been purchased. The remaining 12, as some military sources intimated to the press, were intended for the Black Sea Fleet’s naval aviation.

Given that naval aviation has seen cuts in combat aircraft, it seems logical to reinforce it with heavy Su-30SM two-seaters that are efficient both in air-to-air combat and against ground and surface targets.

Thus far, however, there is no mention of plans to buy the Su-30 for the Navy. Possibly the option will be realized later.

Exporters’ courtesy

There is another simple explanation for choice of the Su-30MKI. Irkut has been churning out these planes for 10 years thanks to its completely streamlined production method. This means that its products are of high quality, relatively cheap (which pleases the Defense Ministry in particular) and will be supplied on time.

It is one thing if, in order to make 30 aircraft, you have to breathe life into an idling plant, to fine-tune (or develop anew) your technological method, buy additional equipment, and – still worse – hire personnel. But it’s quite another if you have been manufacturing standardized aircraft for years and years and can easily divert your workforce to produce an “improved” modification for your own country’s Air Force. The cost of this batch on the side is dramatically lower.

This approach (buying quickly and on the cheap what can be produced immediately) has been growing in popularity in the Russian military. We have mentioned the Su-30M2 combat trainer aircraft intended for the Russian Air Force. The same goes for the carrier-based MiG-29K, which in its present form was developed for the Indian Navy.

This approach is logical in its own way. The military expects certain fundamentally new models that are being tested with some degree of success. The Air Force is eying the T-50, the fifth-generation fighter aircraft, and the Navy has been trying to get into shape its Lada project involving the construction of non-nuclear submarines. The Land Forces have boycotted the purchases of all currently existing armor models, urging manufacturers to invent something totally new.

In the meantime, the Armed Forces will buy cheap, mass-produced, well-equipped, if ordinary, military hardware, like the Su-30SM.

Dutch Air Force display team F-14 Tomcat flying over an African coast

Dutch Air Force display team F-14 Tomcat flying over an African coast.
This is probably the 3rd one in the series featuring a Northrop Grumman F-14 Tomcat in Royal Netherlands Airforce Display team color scheme. Thanks to tips from Peter Van Stigt and Distant Star , i guess i did a better job than before.

Dutch Solo F-14 Tomcat Demo Plane at The International Paris Air Show (SIAE)

The International Paris Air Show (SIAE) at Le Bourget has featured as the world's premier and largest event dedicated to the aviation and space industry for more than a century. And for the first time ever brings to you Solo Display by The Royal Netherlands Airforce Demo team F-14 Tomcat.

The Royal Netherlands Airforce Demo team F-14 Tomcat makes a low and scares the Jesus out of the spectators. ooooo raaa

Since it began, the show has been at the very heart of the development of the global aviation and space industry. Over the years, it has become the industry's key networking event.

The last International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget in June 2011 broke all previous records in terms of numbers, with 2,113 international exhibitors, 355,000 visitors, 290 professional delegations and 150 aircraft present.

The Royal Netherlands Airforce F-14 Tomcat Demo Jet

An Royal Netherlands Airforce F-14 Tomcat Demo Jet makes a high speed pass over Dallas .

  • Followed Distant Star's Advice : Mil Psd, this is sick! but you need to do few things. use radial blue set at zoom/bes/9 pxl from left to right and set the center of the radial blur at the left center of the frame near the nose of the tomcat. and erase 90% of this blurred tomcat over the back of the main tomcat and make sure its layer is under the main tomcat and not over it.

F-14 Tomcat asThe Royal Netherlands Air Force Demo Team


 Tried my hand with a Northrop Grumman F-14 Tomcat as  RNLAF demo team solo demonstrator . Added motion blur to aircraft and the background . Tried to give it a little bit of perspective. But i still have a lot of ground to cover. I am not quite happy with the end result here. Obviously i cant dream to compete with the top tier artists in the field but i still need to improve   :]

“One Team One Mission” is the motto of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. This motto applies to the Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16 Demo Team as well.
The team around the display pilot exists of two coaches who are also F-16 pilots, six highly skilled technical specialists and two advisors.
This team offers every conceivable support to the air display pilot throughout the entire demo season, which comprises about 30 shows in all. The team also receives full further support from their home base Leeuwarden AB and its staff wherever necessary. What sets the Dutch team apart from some other display teams is that besides performing aerobatic displays, all members are also current operational personnel of the Air Force.
They perform daily operational tasks and are deployed to operational theatres even during the demo season. This enables the team to be truly current operational representatives of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
