They still have a numerical superiority in some areas but that doesn't immediately mean they are better.


Oh yes, I am aware. It's just that a frequently brought up idea by internet idiots is that the US just uses these silver bullet stealth planes that will be hugely outnumbered by the Russians or Chinese.

That's what? up to 70 heavy PGMs? 280 light PGMs? Have the right target list and you could end the ability of an enemy to fight in a sizable region.

Yeah, wish I'd known about it. I only live about 10 miles south of the base. I wonder how far south they went (the direction they were flying). :cry:

With 35 jets, that's 210 GBU-31/32 or 840 GBU-39/54( in bomb truck configuration.)

That is an "alpha strike" launch from a UK CVF with 36 F35B's?

That's a good way to look at it. However, how quickly can the QueenLIzzie launch them? Once every 30 seconds? Once a minute? The first planes up will be spending gas waiting for the trailers. With no organic tanking component...

Will ask that question over in the muddle thread...
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, add dollop of F-117 & gob of F-22, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well, then bake. Whaddya get? An F-35.
