Dammit now I have to choose whether to carry on playing my newest Skyrim character, or go back to my long-neglected copy of Just Cause 2...

Skyrim, you'll get bored of jc2 in an hour and never play it again. ******* **** game

Actually I find it has just as much cause (see what I did there) for replaying as any ES game.

id probably get sucked into the intake if it got that close
#39 to #3 - drjake (07/28/2013) [-]
The intake doesn't "suck", it allows the air that the jet is flying against to enter and reduce drag.
#40 to #39 - milkinmapockets (07/28/2013) [-]
No, those are the engine intakes, where the engines suck in air to then push it out. By your logic, the airplane wouldn't even be able to start moving.
User avatar #41 to #40 - drjake (07/28/2013) [-]
I must have mistakend them for the type that doesn't work past mark 1. how can you tell?
#42 to #41 - milkinmapockets (07/28/2013) [-]
Well without those massive air intakes, to suck in air, the other reason the airplane would be able to start moving is if it were rocket powered, and no typhoon ever was built rocket powered. Every airplane has these intakes so they can suck in air and then push it out. It's basically just like a commercial jet's engine, just longer. At the back of both of those air intakes is the fan (as illustrated in the pic) of the jet engine that sucks in the air.
User avatar #43 to #42 - drjake (07/28/2013) [-]
Thank you. I was unaware of that.

I dunno man that kinda looks like Anakin's podracing engine if not a bit homemade...

User avatar #72 to #42 - cormy (07/28/2013) [-]
I believe what he was referring to was ramjets, which rely on their high velocity in order to compress incoming air into the engine and so don't have any "sucking" power.
Ramjets don't launch from the ground for this reason, they have ferrying planes to bring them up to an altitude and speed they can work at then they're launched.
Scramjets require supersonic speed in order to start at all.
User avatar #134 to #41 - CorporalObvious (07/28/2013) [-]
"Mark 1"

Mach
#90 to #40 - anon (07/28/2013) [-]
Unless it's a ramjet, which only works on planes going so fast that they don't need anything other than their own movement to pressurize air.
#45 - milkinmapockets (07/28/2013) [-]
Fun fact about the typhoon!
It's design was made to be pretty unstable during a stall so that if the pilot was being chased by an enemy, and couldn't shake him off, the pilot would just stall and the typhoon would quickly go into a directly down spin stall that the enemy would not be able to chase! I frikin love this Eurofighter.
User avatar #140 to #45 - mymiddleleg (07/29/2013) [-]
Eurofighter is one of the most advanced fighting aircraft in the world, its a beats
User avatar #79 to #45 - doodogger (07/28/2013) [-]
I still think the f22 would win. The f35 and f15 are probably relatively comparable to the Eurofighter Typhoon.
User avatar #141 to #79 - mymiddleleg (07/29/2013) [-]
You'll never know unless they get into an actual dogfight but my personal opinion i thibk the Eurofighter would wipe the floor with it, its one of the most advanced aircrafts in the world
User avatar #148 to #141 - doodogger (07/29/2013) [-]
You're right. All we can do is speculate. I'd still say the F22 would win. It was and still is ahead of it's time when it was created. It is way too expensive and that's why there are only ~127 in service at this time (the USAF is looking to buy 150 more) The Typhoon has about 355 in service if I can remember right. I honestly think the F-22 would basically be "easy mode" for anyone that is qualified to pilot it. It has stealth capabilities that surpass any other 5th generation aircraft. The F22 was created without compromise in performance with a mega high budget and long development It can also travel at mach 1.7 without it's afterburners (supercruise) (typhoon can go 1.5 without afterburners, great, but not greater than the f22). Both have great maneuverability. The F22 would shoot it down before it's even detected, but in the off chance the missile misses, it will be an extremely formidible adversary even to the typhoon. Take away the long range stealth kill capability and suddenly the eurofighter has a decent chance.

Make no mistake though, I have high respect for the Typhoon.

My 22 cents. Get it? 22. XD
User avatar #151 to #148 - mymiddleleg (07/29/2013) [-]
when the Eurofighter is equipped with the meteor missile in three years. It may completely negate the F-22′s range advantage, both are seriously over powered pieces of equipment and to be honest doesnt matter which is batter just as long as they are fighting on our side and not against us lol
User avatar #149 to #148 - doodogger (07/29/2013) [-]
The only thing wrong is that there is a slight chance of a oxygen malfunction. High maintenance, and there's a small amount of them.

I see the F22 as Delta Force, and the Eurofighter as Navy SEALs.
User avatar #128 to #79 - nickotak (07/28/2013) [-]
Aren't F22 EXTREMELY dangerous for the pilots flying it? I heard there was some problems with the cockpit making it a deathtrap.
User avatar #150 to #128 - doodogger (07/29/2013) [-]
Flying the F22 isn't a death wish, but there is a more than desired chance of an oxygen systems malfunction.
User avatar #146 to #128 - doodogger (07/29/2013) [-]
Yes. But it' spretty unlikely. Still though, not relaible enough at this time for the standards of the U.S. Air Force.
User avatar #65 to #45 - Loppytaffy (07/28/2013) [-]
Fun fact about the British: if it's a plane, they'll make it work.
User avatar #142 to #65 - mymiddleleg (07/29/2013) [-]
That we will
#51 to #45 - ljetibo (07/28/2013) [-]
another fun fact, since the development of f117 Nighthawk they've been basically designing any airplane to be unstable. Like you said it allows them better maneuvering capabilities and a rapid change of direction.
Problem no human could pilot such unstable aircraft which are, today, kept stable using computers and programs developed first on the aforementioned stealth fighter, better known ones are F15 (was introduced about 5 or 6 years before the f117) and F16 but they never got the same media coverage

That pilot could probably sack tap you if you stood at the edge of the cargo ramp.
User avatar #16 to #6 - Mahazama (07/28/2013) [-]
You'd probably get sucked into the Tiffy's intakes.
User avatar #59 to #16 - nalapsi (07/28/2013) [-]
Not if you we're harnessed and hooked on as your supposed to be on the ramps
User avatar #144 to #59 - Mahazama (07/29/2013) [-]
I doubt two EJ-200's that suck in air and kick out 40,000 lbs of thrust will have trouble with breaking a harness.
User avatar #154 to #144 - nalapsi (07/29/2013) [-]
the harnesses are tested to withstand ten tonnes of weight, and that's proper English tonnes not the american ones (difference of 240lb per ton) even with the pull from the eurofighters ej-200s the air pressure wouldnt exceed ten tonnes so unless there was a major flaw in the harness you should be fine apart from getting sack tapped and struggling for breath its nice to see someone on here who actually knows a bit about such an awesome plane
User avatar #155 to #154 - Mahazama (07/29/2013) [-]
**** man, I could talk for days about this **** . As an american, I myself lean a bit more towards the Raptor though
User avatar #156 to #155 - nalapsi (07/29/2013) [-]
We've got the upgraded version of the raptor now :3
User avatar #158 to #156 - Mahazama (07/29/2013) [-]
The lightning?
User avatar #159 to #158 - nalapsi (07/29/2013) [-]
the joint force strike fighter, they are the bigger brother to the raptor
User avatar #160 to #159 - Mahazama (07/29/2013) [-]
Yea I figured that's what you meant. You're one of the few aviation savvy people I know that are happy about the JSF.
User avatar #161 to #160 - nalapsi (07/29/2013) [-]
I didn't say I was happy about it... I'm just glad we have a semi decent jet for once xD
User avatar #162 to #161 - Mahazama (07/30/2013) [-]
As opposed to the good ol' AV-8?
In my opinion, it will prove to be much better than decent.
User avatar #157 to #156 - Mahazama (07/29/2013) [-]
What do you mean?

User avatar #57 - fantomen (07/28/2013) [-]
My uncle's family are all military aircraft engineers, so I've met quite a few jet fighter pilots.

I can confidently say that they're all crazy.
They are massive adrenaline junkies just like those guys on all those red bull games.
They are the kind of people that will skim along upside down 10 feet above the ground at a thousands miles an hour, just because it's fun.
Also, all fighter pilots are tiny. Seriously, I'm 6'3" and I towered over every single fighter pilot I met. Then I found out why, if you're over a certain length or have long legs, your legs will be torn off id you have to use the rocket ejection seat. Which BTW compresses your spine about 2 inches permanently.
#82 to #57 - newborn (07/28/2013) [-]
i guess that's why Tom Cruise was Top Gun
#73 to #57 - muffinssnuffims ONLINE (07/28/2013) [-]
Well and beyond that, generally speaking the shorter you are the higher g-force tolerance you have. Less long legs for blood to pool in and your brain is closer to your heart.
#62 to #57 - angelusprimus (07/28/2013) [-]
Also, space in the cockpit is pretty limited, taller you are harder it is to fit and move in it and bigger chance of accidentally pressing something important.
But you are right, military pilots make extreme sports adrenaline junkies seem like timid children.
And then there are test pilots.

It was filmed over North East Lincolnshire from a C-130 for a RAF Recruitment TV Advert so no he wasnt trying to park it

I live near North East Lincolnshire!
User avatar #34 - madbomber (07/28/2013) [-]
but wouldn't the plane stall due to C-130 cutting through the air causing a tunnel where little air is present resulting in the front air in-take of the plane to not get enough air?
User avatar #70 to #34 - thesuperhanz (07/28/2013) [-]
you'd thing the grevity would send it into a spin and cut the engines

I'd take a long stick, make it into a long stick dildo, make it into a strap on, strap it on myself, and then poke the cockpit bubble with it.
