Can't view page, but F-35 as in pilot's helmet or as in "onboard" computer for our frontline guys?

Ahhhh, sweet. I like the Lightning II, just wish it had the F-22 powerplant, but then again, what would be the point of giving everyone else our tech.


Did anyone know that the F-22 can break Mach 1.7 without ever using afterburner?

Re: F-35 Helmet Revealed

If I'm not mistaken the F-35's don't have thrust vectoring. Can someone confirm this.

Re: F-35 Helmet Revealed

it would make sense, its a budget airframe, not a F22.

The exhaust from this fan is deflected by a thrust vectoring nozzle, as is the main engine exhaust, to provide the appropriate combination of lift and propulsive thrust during transition.
now as far as using it like the F22 does using the actual nozzle to direct the thrust, i dont think the F35 will have that either

Re: F-35 Helmet Revealed

The F-22 has thrust vectoring to help it maneuver. The Marine F-35 turns the exhaust nozzle straight down for VTOL. I don't believe that any of the F-35 variants use it like the F-22 does.
