    the aesthetics r bit strange—even appealing

  • Simon Ndiritu

    As bulbous as F-35

  • Lone Ranger

    Not impressed.
    This design is 30years old.
    Probably switched U.S. made parts with Chinese to drive down cost.
    Slow clap…

    • goingbrokes

      Yep, I’m sure you’re right, the design is pulled off the shelf to save time.

    • Martin Petrovski

      so you are claiming that china had this 30 yearsago? plz give me a source :D

      • Lone Ranger

        Who said anything about China?
        Adjust your meds ;)

          You are implying china has parts for a US made drone and you are implying its 30 years old.

          • Lone Ranger

            Im not implying it, it is.
            Craptors and Flop-35s are full with Chinese electronics ad well…;)

          • Martin Petrovski

            their is no evidance of the F22 useing any chinese electronics but the F35 does tho that is expectide since they need to make it cheaper so it can be more compettitive on the export market but what relevance does that have with the drone beeing made in china? You do realise that a shit ton of other nations includeing china use US parts in their gear (and to a far bigger extent) for example the Chinese use US made engines in their humvee ripoff or the Russians also uesing US made disel engines in their Gaz tiger and VDV Typhoon.

          • Lone Ranger

            I never said China copied or is producing these drones…
            A diesel engine cant be hacked, electronic components can…
            F-22 also does have Chinese CPUs.
            Do some deep research…
            U.S. is looking at China as its Nr.1 adversary, yet China could probably knock out half the U.S. military by crippling Chinese electronic components in variety of weapons systems used by the U.S.
            Also in case of war the supply line would go down, hence no new jets or anything that is using Chinese parts…
            Not very smart…
            There were Senate hearings about it, DARPA and RAND both warned about it, it was swepped under the carpet.
            You trying to hype U.S
            tech as the best is just sad, really.
            I hope you are doing it for a green card, at least it wouldnt be totally wasted trolling…
            Have a nice weekend.:)
