The Japs will be straight in the fray if / when it starts. They hate the Chinese and have done for millenia.


If the US go to war then we do to. Aust, Canada, UK, etc.


The Philippines have little firepower and Vietnam way less than that even.

Never happened to me.

The one bloke who tried got sent backwards down the stairs with a mouthful of knuckles. After that they didn't bother with me and went after softer targets.

THE SHOTGUN BAR / Re: Anyone have any personal UFO encounters ?
« on: May 24, 2015, 10:38:54 AM »

1985.

 I was a 1st year apprentice mechanic, a country lad working and living in the big smoke in Sydney. A cold clear Thursday night saw us off to the pub for cheap beer night and after 5 or 6 schooners we were merrily making our way through the back streets to our digs.

We stopped off at the local footy field in Ashfield for a spell and a ciggy as they had an open air grandstand. Having a smoke and kicking back in the seat I was staring up into the sky when I saw a cluster 6 or 7 white lights and 3 blue ones at an altitude I guestimated to be 20,000 - 30,000 feet. At that height and at night all I could really distinguish (I had 30/20 vision back then no bull) was the lights and no shapes to the craft. At first they circled and swirled and danced in the sky for a little while before going crazy, blinding acceleration and making impossible high speed right angle turns and zig zags over roughly 20 degrees of my vision.

Next thing they scattered. Most flew straight upwards at incredible speed until their light dimmed to nothing in mere seconds and a couple took off at weird tangents at the same speed.

From go to woah lasted roughly 3 minutes.

Luckily my mate had witnessed the entire thing as well and the papers reported sightings from all over Sydney the next day.

And thinking about it ....that

Mirage

F1-11

F35

They were all pieces of shit that took years and years of work and retrofits by our flight techs to make them reliable and effective in combat.

Anyone else seeing a pattern here ?

I'm liking the F-15 !!  With its F14 like twin engines and large airframe it could carry the meteor missile system easy !



Yeah fuck the 35 shitboxes ..send the bloody things back for a refund ...  Why the hell didn’t we go for these: http://www.boeing.com/defense/f-15-strike-eagle/



I bet the same wanker that picked the collins class subs picked the F35 as well.  FFS .... I'll bet the cockhead picks a fucked tank for us next.

Supersonic gunship really, wasn't she ?

I like big airframe fighters, you can pack so much more into them that they become awesome. You don't need nimble when you have heavy duty firepower and effective countermeasures.

I had to smile at how outnumbered the Tomcats always seemed to be and how much ass kicking they did.
