F-35F Nebekh



Secret Two-Seat Variant Uses Additional Crewmember to Counter Anti-F-35 Social Media Posts.

Israel has unveiled their previously classified F-35F Nebekh Joint Social Media Fighter (JSMF). The new rear seat position in the two-seat F-35F Nebekh is occupied by the SMO or Social Media Officer. The modification is in response to threats to the F-35 in the social media space. Gen Hadir Uffani of the IDF told reporters, “The F-35’s primary threats exist in the social media space, so we have made a special variant of the Joint Strike Fighter to counter this threat in real-time.”

--

There has been a downside to the program however. When the new AN/APG-345 SMMS (Social Media Monitoring System) was updated to the Block VII sensor fusion status, the aircraft began to monitor Tinder users. In an accidental case of collateral social media posting, a number of French Rafales started hitting on the F-35 for one night stands, apparently in adoration of the aircraft’s low-observable lines.

The backseater is always a teen well versed in twitter and facebook skills.

So what was so different (side-by-side seating)?

The backseater should be facing backwards to get conform with the F-35 "all around" situational awareness. :devil:

Even then, I would say that the markings are wrong! It should be "AF-01" (instead of DF-01) because:

A 4th/4.5th gen fighter aircraft stands about as much chance against a F-35 as a guns-only Sabre has against a Viper.

Yup, another reason why AF-01 should have stayed, LoL :wink:
