  1. That’s a fancy sounding way to describe opining on a message board about jobs you’ve never done to people who aren’t going to effect the change youd like to see because we’re not going back to the tail hook era Navy despite your desire.
  2. Just because you don’t understand his argument doesn’t mean he made it up or he’s clueless. It is kind of funny though seeing guys try to argue about how women don’t belong, and the SF units have more and more women involved in operations. Though I suspect most wouldn’t know that as these forums seem to be made up of guys who were so far removed from the wet end of the spear that it’s almost comical when they want to attempt to talk knowledgeably about women’s service....
  3. On the contrary, I have no doubt of the commitment of the Cold War era soldiers who were in Korea or Berlin, or any of the other soldiers. But if someone is going to stand up and talk about how the standards have fallen so much, it requires perspective.
  4. Seems about as accurate as some our BP Banditi’s stories.
  5. Did Reagan’s armies fight a bunch of wars the history books forgot about?
  6. I love me some 1903’s. by far one of the best actions for a classic American custom rifle.
  7. I’ve never seen any evidence that 20-30 people backed the account of him raping little girls. You have something that substantiates that?
  8. There were Delta guys on hand as advisors, it would make sense the field triage expedient things they did would be used. But suppressor use by alphabet agencies was not a super common thing in the 90’s. I mean hell they don’t even always do it now nearly 30 years later.
  9. Yes, the idea has been forwarded, but isn’t currently in the field atleast as a platform wide capability. It would not surprise me to find out there is atleast one -22 being tested with that capability. The F-22 only has the ability to receive on the legacy -16 battle link, because broadcasting would reveal its location. The F-35 can broadcast on the legacy -16, or utilize its new “stealth data link” if talking to a 5th gen stealth capable counterpart. Last I knew, there is a new tie in being explored to give the -22 the ability to receive the stealth link from the -35, but I don’t know if that’s gone field wide, or if they added the ability for the -22 to push data. But against a -35, talking on the legacy -16 link would make you a target, so even if the -22 could be the eyes for a -15, doing so would actually put him at a disadvantage against a -35.
  10. The F-22 is currently receive only on its -16 datalink. Though there is a work around in progress I don’t know if it will be retrofitted to the legacy fighters or if it will be between the -22 and -35.
  11. Well, there’s a couple problems. For one, the F-35 has a better radar, and will likely see the -15’s long before the 22 can see the -35. Secondly, the F-22 cannot broadcast its battle link to other aircraft. It can receive from a Link-16 broadcaster such as the F-15, but the -16 link is not stealth, and a -35 could likely detect the transmission if they were at combat range However, the F-35 has a stealth battle link, that can share data between the flight. So a battle between a F-22, and say 3 F-15’s vs 4 F-35’s would likely end up Between one -22 and 4 -35’s.
