We do not speak of Firebirds.

You don't like seeing Attack Helicopters taking on and shooting down Supersonic Interceptors?
I heard that in the sequel they were going to take out a rogue Carrier Battle Group to prevent WW-III. After splashing all of the F-14 CAP first of course.

Wow!

Kelly McGillis thinks she looks "age appropriate" for 62 years of age. I've dated older women who looked a whole lot better than she does. I'm glad she's happy with how she looks, but ...

I like seeing that! [tinfoil]  I have the complete boxed set of AIRWOLF!!!!  

Seriously,  the use of attack helicopters vs. Jet fighters was tested at Nellis a couple or three decades ago.  It was assumed the Jets would TKO the choppers post haste, but,  were quite surprised that the opposite happened.
I recall two reasons:

1. The Jets operate high and fast, the choppers low and slow. Most first contact was visual as the choppers mixed in with ground clutter on radar and choppers sometimes do not have radar.  Chopper pilots have an easier time seeing up than jet pilots have seeing down.

2.  The choppers may not go zoom zoom fast like jets,  but they're a LOT more maneuverable.

An additional conclusion was that dogfights between jets and choppers was not very likely due to the fact they operate in different realms and fighters usually are up against other fighters and worried about SAMs from below,  while choppers are more typically antitank, if they're armed.  But, I understand some AH-64s to have Sidewinder missile ability.



Anyway .... I still like AIRWOLF.   [tinfoil]

First rule of air combat, or one of them at least: Don't get suckered into fighting them on their terms.
Or another way of putting it: If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics suck.

I liked Firebirds! Of course I was like ten or something.

There are plausible scenarios where a hell could engage a jet. And yes it has been proven out for several platforms to carry sidewinders. Sometimes if you see a pic with a Cobra and a Sidewinder it is actually a Sidearm, wonder turned into an antiradiation missile. I think the basic premise is leave someone alone with a hell long enough and they will figure out how to misuse it. The use of Apaches in Gulf Wars to clean out the air defense being a prime example. Or H-60 trucks carrying Penguin missiles making them ship hunters. Or hellfire missiles, or whatever fits on the stubwing. My old helo at one time was nuclear capable. Just when you thought the nuclear recoilless rifle was a spite weapon...

She actually looks 10X better in the video than that photo of her earlier in this thread. She actually looks healthy and 100lb lighter than the previous photo. While there's no way she could portray Cruise's love interest given he looks younger than his age, plus Hollywood expectations, she's not ugly and could certainly portray the love interest of someone in their 60s. She must have really gone on a health kick since that other photo.

She has also made no secret of the fact she has become a militant lesbian.  That makes me wonder if that attitude had some bearing on the filmmakers not including her in the movie.  When you think of the demographic they are appealing to, it makes some sense she would be left out.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Something is off, too many critics are liking it. So I'm thinking at the end of the movie it is revealed Maverick has been a birthing person this whole time and is pregnant with Kelly McGillis's character's child which he/she proudly aborts in the name of climate change and there's too many white people.

I am hearing a lot of good things about the movie.  Not just from critics, but from others.  I may try to see it this week.  I do have a long weekend off. 

I heard a couple people I follow on YouTube are seeing a Tuesday viewing so we will see.

Personally, while I'd like to see the movie, I can't stand T. Cruise.

Oh well...

Quote
With a run time of one-and-a-half minutes, new release Top Gun: Predator shows a drone completing the exact same mission as in Maverick, but way faster. 

"This is easily the most realistic Top Gun movie yet," said Navy pilot Ryan "Mayonnaise" Matthews. "It's a thirty-second thrill ride, wondering if the pilot will finish his bag of Doritos before the drone blows up the target."

I just watched it, had some good scenes and quite a few wtf. Not a bad sequel but I like the original better.

After extensive research someone figured out that Top Gun: Maverick is Pentagon propaganda
