you can lock onto an sr-71 all day, but good luck with getting the missiles to catch up

It's funny though because Sweden's armed forces have arguments to this day whether they'd be capable of defending their own borders for a week in the event of a serious invasion.

We had vehicles that could reach mach 3 in 1980?
User avatar #5 to #4 - Ashtaroth (08/05/2014) [-]
Mach 6+, actually. Called the X-15. But it was impractical. Essentially a rocket with stubby wings. But you could control it to an extent. It was more to prove things could go that fast in the atmosphere and not melt from the friction.

An sr-71 would be able to out-fly the missile.
User avatar #23 to #22 - iLime (08/05/2014) [-]
the only way to shoot down an sr-71 would be to anticipate where it will be and fire a non guided missile. A blackbird is literally the fastest flying aircraft ever made.

Did this stuff actually happen? That would be funny as hell.
User avatar #21 to #9 - mattdoggy (08/05/2014) [-]
The first one i think was a war game exercise where they asked the swedes to use their diesel electric subs to test their new sonar and early detection systems which the swedes found a gap in (i think it was the lack of side scan sonar, so you just had to be really shallow). They got close enough to the carrier to snap a picture effectively acting as a kill.

The second one was due simply to line of sight. When the Aircraft flew back from their targets in the USSR and routine patrols they took the same path every time. As a test on the aircraft's capabilities and a sort of joke they would lock onto it. Most of the time the lock would fail due to the planes countermeasures blocking the aircraft and ground radar out. On one particular stretch however their was a surplus of ground radar. When the pilots and ground radar stations coordinated and very carefully fine tuned their search to a very small area they were able to get a signal on the ground. They bounced the signal back to the aircraft overhead who could then proceed to set his lock on the SR-71 who would then more than likely kick in the afterburners

I'll say it before and I'll say it again, if given the opportunity I'd totally **** an SR-71.

Oh man the SR71 is probably one of my favourite planes ever,its so sexy looking.

The SR-71 evaded over 4000 missiles in its flying history by simply outrunning them.

Sweden mentioned, swell with köttbullar.

No, but this comic made me think of how Polish military violated Swedish airspace this summer. That could become a fun polanball comic.

Was on the news this morning, happened around midsummer. I guess Poland wanted to bomb the **** out of the Thai berrypicker slaves that take all their work.

Many missiles locked onto the Sr-71, none ever caught up with it though.

Not really considering our population is smaller than that of the state of Ohio.

I'm pretty sure every Army has these Stories about the United States Armed Forces. It is the story about the Submarine I heard about a united maneuver of NATO-Troops where germans claimed to be the Submarine trolling the carrier. Or the classic lighthouse-joke.
