I was reading in the latest Combat Aircraft about the Talon Hate pod. Supposedly being carried by F-15's to allow IR detection and communication with/from/to the F-22. They described it as revolutionary..

So what do you guys know about it? As good as they claim??

Having IR detection and communication with the F-22 would be revolutionary, for the F-15.

"Talon Hate"...should i translate it to "Hate for talon?"

Because if that's the case, it's quite troll-y to give an item with that name to an "Eagle" and a "Raptor".

Maybe it's supposed to be "a Talon for dishing out some hate upon your enemies" ? :P
I kid, I kid! A poorly chosen name, if that's the implication.

I have read about the Talon HATE pod but never seen a picture of one installed. This thing is HUGE!

I’m not a real smart guy but the article says the HATE Pod has satellite communications. I also noticed the F-15 carries it centerline underneath the aircraft...

Because they only bought four of them.
