Could Russia Shoot Down an F-22 Stealth Fighter Over Syria?
War Is Boring

Sigh. Current state of the art VHF band radars can detect a 1 m² target at a maximum range of 265 miles. New physics will be needed to improve this detection range much further. Given that the F-22 has a RCS of 0.0001 m² that effectively means that an F-22 can be detected at 0.26 miles by long band radar. The F-35 can be detected at 13 miles. Does that sound like a recipe for success for A2/AD? People are declaring stealth dead far to soon. Everyone needs to calm down.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
