Ugu, and aircrafts of other nations are done at the expense of "saint spirit". Nyu-nyu...>For instance F-16 from jumpy fellow turned>into old fat woman by growing additional 2300kg.
And what ? It was better you explain the history of weight of MiG-31.>YF-16 - 6361kg which is 11% heavier than F-8C Crusader
Wow, it's cool, except some little thing, F-8С was 7450 kg empty. And special for you education: empty weights of "Crusader" modifications.
F-8A - 7010 kg
F-8C - 7450 kg
F-8D - 7930 kg
F-8E - 8060 kg
I advise you to read more serious sources, for this theme you may to start from "United States Navy Aircraft Since 1911" by Gordon Swanborough and Peter M. Bowers.>and 50% heavier than Mikoyan MiG-21PF.
You missed again. MiG-21PF empty weight was about 5150 kg.>Later Beefy Yank literally turned into>Beefy Monstrosity with 8666kg of empty>weight! I refer to F-16C Block 50 by the way.
Block 50 was 8240 kg empty weight.>(as long as this is what you ment however I>see no indication of weight in the article)
I mean what APAR was installed on fighter with combat weight about 20 tonn.>- Active - MiG-31 doesn't have active>scanned array does it?
"Zaslon" is passive.>How much of a difference does it make?
He-he..., some developers of passive PAR in advertising articles in "Military Parade" claims what algorithms of electronic scanning are greatly important than type of phazed array, but almost all perspective radars are APAR.
>RCS = 5 sq.m. target detection at 360 km...
AFAIK 360 km detection range is for big targets.>APG-71? APG-63(v)2? APG-77 ?
He-he... AN/APY-2, AN/APS-145 is better suitable for this "round-up"
But if be seriuos... Do you have data about AN/APG-63(v)2 ?[This message has been edited by Nikita (edited 29-12-2000).]
