OK I see, so they do have Pitot tubes (Total pressure), they are just one unit with static and AoA.

What will they think of next?

The B2 bomber has flat air speed sensors! These little round patches sit flush with the airframe. Not sure how they work - like Northrop are going to tell the world, right

Anything protruding more than 1/2mm from the surface would show up like a blimp on radar!! Apparently they developed around 200 new technologies like that for the B2, which explains the cost.

And talking about flyability. The Northrop engineers refer to the pilot's as meat servos. It would have been a lot easier to design the plane without them. Cue FOAS???

Hi Badboy!

Had to smile when I read this.

However, the EF2000 strategy guide was released about a year after the game, and was considered by many to be a valuable resource.


Note the name of the flightsim that you mentioned and then ask yourself if Typhoon is going to last anywhere near as long...

And the patch, sorry add-on, sorry full game, (TAW) is something that I'm not going to hold my breath for. I don't care at the moment about seeing the campaign opened up - I'd just like to be able to get into the air quickly and then target my chosen opponent just as quickly.

Thinking about it, it does irk me that any developer can release such a limited game then expect anyone to pay for an addon just for features that previous generations of their products already contained - maybe that was the plan all along.

LOL ! BKnight! That was funny. I'm in.
Now how do I get from CA to Michigan? I guess I will take my Eurofighter and fly, do you have a runway near your house I just eject and crash land the Typhoon?
I could use the highway...hm!

Also, be nice, disactivate that HAWK battery you have in the backyard, I still haven't found the "chaff" button here.

LOL! Dont crash land...you'll die

Now fly over here early, because you'll have to eject, and even if you eject right over my house, you'll still spend at least an hour hiding in the bushes across the street. While I call for a helo to pick you up and carry you over the street...no... wait that wont work because after the helo picks you up your gonna have to spend at least a few hours in the hospital.

...hell how about we just fly a few missions in EF2000? you know...the game that lets you drop that chaff on my lawn.

Ok, man, let's do it this way:

I came slow and low, around dusk, when I'm 4 miles from your house I launch a Brimstone at your door...don't worry, it won't do nothing
when you hear the Brim bouncing around in your patio run to open the garage door.
I'll try to park the T in the garage, just align some beer cans in front of the garage ramp in double parallel lines so I can use them as a runway lights.

DO you dislike any of your neighborood on particular? So I will know where to crash land in case I miss the garage.
What brand of beer do you like?

Ahhhh! [wipes tears from eye] STOP DOT STOP! Your slaying me!

OK four miles is way too far if you want to come anywhere near my neighborhood much less my house! Try pickling at 1nm, thats three minutes after you hear my SAM director lock you up.
Oh and if you want to whack the house across the street thats OK, but you'll cause much more damage if you just jettison your droptank on their roof!
Now the beer is your call, whatever you want man, this may be blasphemy around here, but I never could get to likeing the taste of beer. Just turn on your IRST and home in on the small black circle...its the ice cold brews, and my pepsi's in a cooler in the backyard waiting for some CD smacking!
