I am sure you have the quote?GunshipDemocracy wrote:b]The only official statemen[/b]t so far was: we replace Su-33 and MiG-29k by VSTOL fighter for our carriers.
If you believe in rumors , recent talk about the universal ship is to be carrier too.
America class is a carrier too.
Not ignoring, have already explained to you what sense it makes for me.Why are you ignoring this message then? selective hearing I suspect.
So, I finally did the simulation since you are so lazy. Taking 22400 kg MTOW acc. to Rosoboronexport, considering 4500 kg max load. So TOW with 2400 kg payload like the F-35 would be 20300 kg. Thrust is 2x9000 kgf.MiG-29k can even better! 125m ! ok then without any payload and i presume little fuel. F-35 lengt is defined fo rworst ocnditions or I am wrong? i wonder what MiG-29k can do in worst conditions from 195m runway...
The plane could take off from the ramp of the Vikramaditya in <95 m. So it is in fact quite shorter than the 450 feet of the F-35B in the QE. To be considered though:
- I don't have the aero parameters of the MiG-29K and I am using those of the F-18 instead.
- Simulation considers 30 kt wind over deck, you can play around to check effects of higher and lower wind speed
BTW see F-35B requirements
Yak was cancelled and had a serious accident due to hot air ingestion. After checking the design, Lockheed went for the lifting fan design instead of direct lift. You prefer to ignore this, for me these are reasons to suspect the design may have issues. I stick to serially produced fighters.
Yak 60m - MiG-195m
Nope, see above.F-35-90m MiG-195m
Have seen no link sorry. Checked the videos again and it is true they stop very fast and more importantly with little impact. Deck was empty, would be good to see the real operating conditions at sea, since it is not clear to me if landing and TO can take place in parallel (TO run very long) and how many fighters can be parked at the deck during these operations.
Mig-29 - 90-150m (wiki)
F-35B - 53m - link I've already quoted couple of times.
BTW me a drama queen ?
About MiG-29K? Totally!
