Re: MiG-25 Help

Do a lob-toss: Make sure you have bombs selected. Turn on radar, switch to 25 miles range, and line up your target. Switch the radar to 10 mile range. Come in low (< 200') and fast (500kt+). When the target appears at the top of the radar display, pull up, and use the impact indicator on the radar s...

Wouldn't it be nice if there's some sort of AI that whenever similar questions are detected, it will automatically post the links to the relevant topics and lock the topic?

Re: B747-8I/F

Takaty did NOT make a 787 model. He made the original Dreamliner concept, the 7E7, which is now quite different from the 787.

Nitpick: "kts" is "knots", which is already a unit of speed (nautical miles per hour). So if you are talking about speed, you don't need the "/hour" part, unless you are talking about acceleration.
