Here is another document covering some interesting aviation subjects from the Center for Air Power Studies. The articles on the drones are very interesting. Robert

"PAK-FA: a weapons system that has the potential to strike fear in to the heart of Western air power for decades. This article will examine the background and proposed open source capabilities of the Russian stealth fighter program and argue that if the PAK-FA marketing brochure truly reflects the fielded capability of the platform, then the impact on Western air power at both the strategic and tactical level will be profound. The paper argues that simply procuring the Joint Strike Fighter and F-22 Raptor in the quantities proposed will not necessarily be enough to counter PAK-FA. Western air power must also look to the development of networked air, ground and sea-based technologies capable of detecting and engaging the airborne stealth threat, an F2T2EA chain optimized for speed and a rebalancing of front-line training towards within visual range combat. The penalties for not taking action in the immediate future to counter the emerging stealth threat could well be catastrophic to our national intent and global impact."

From the above. Robert
