what would you choose

It would really depend on the contract lol!

Probably I would choose the one which would give me the ability to renew my contract after my first one expired, better working conditions, location, and, of course a better salary lol! (life is getting more and more expensive Sad Mad ).

By the way, you have the objective of ever joining a 'Skunk Works' unit? (it's usually one of the major achievements on a military aeronautic engineer's life career).

'Skunk Works' teams have very advantages, we can call them the "elites" of aircraft development (and the fact that they get their hands on some of the most sophisticated equipment on the planet is always fascinating).

Exactly, though it was officially canceled, at least "special" units are going to officially use M8's (and later on, perhaps the whole US armed forces).

I highly recommend you read the following article (believe me, it's very interesting):
http://www.armytimes.com/news/2007/12/army_carbine_dusttest_071217/

In fact, interestingly enough, we are going to start a new poll which will allow people to choose the next generation light weapon for the US infantry, if the XM8 is selected, it'll be adapted in the mod as the "M8".

Yeah, me too, they are much more involved in military aircraft development (Boeing is more about "civilian" projects/aircraft, though Boeing is starting to get more and more involved with the military.

Northrop Grumman's special development units must be creating the new generation of Black Mantas as we speak (they created the B-2 Spirit and many others).

Wow!!! The closest that most people get to watch Area 51 is by looking it on Google Earth Razz Razz Razz

You would like to work in Area 51 someday?

Yeah, Space Warfare was a major issue on the Cold War (and still is), the US has been conducting a LOT of space experiments to create new space-weaponry.

A few examples:
- Lasers, the US is conducting a LOT of experiments on lasers in space, it was publicly announced as well (with projects such as: Evolutionary Air and space Global Laser Engagement (EAGLE) Program);

- Kinetic bombardment: I'm sure you've heard the "Rods from God".

Kinetic bombardment is actually very possible (and current technology could definitely create such effective weapons system).

lol! lol! lol! Good Luck sunny Area 51 employees (specially aeronautic engineers) are considered to be some of the most important professionals in the field that work for the USAF.

Just take a look at the immense importance of their (publicly acknowledged) projects, the U-2, SR-71, F-117 are and will continue to remain in the minds of the general public as some of the "coolest" aircraft in history.

yeah i've heard
lk the already done lasers are

Normal light laser (for targeting etc...)
Infrared (for technical uses etc....)
chemical (the first military lethal lasers ...... take 100's and 100's of gallons of toxin 2 shoot 1 concitrated beam)
right now NASA is ressearching Halogenic lasers (may be more powerfull than the chemical version ... and a lot more saving... this one focuses on halogenic energy only (clear from the name:P)

Yeah, the main problem with directed energy weapons is definitely the power source, lasers require a LOT of energy, they are conducting a lot of experiments to create much smaller and powerful power sources that could "feed" those energy-hungry lasers.

In fact, weapons like Railguns are being created to equip next generation ships such as the DDG-1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyers.

Railguns have a LOT of advantages, they have an extremely high projectile velocity, a lot of penetrating power Shocked pale affraid , do not have many inherent problems which are common on "standard guns" and the list goes on.
Then again the same problem is the Power source, but the Zumwalt Destroyer haves energy that could feed a large city, so that's why they are keen on testing naval railguns.

Other directed energy weapon systems such as beam weapons, microwave, radiation, have been extensively studied from the 50's on. The major problem was the power source.

Thanks bro 8)
Yeah, Area 51 is one of the main (if not THE main) developing/research place of UAV's in the United States. Unmanned technology is getting extremely popular, in less than 10 years, the military will have unmanned technology to help in many fields (ground/air/sea: surface and underwater/space).

lol! lol! lol! That's no problem at all, since the mod is generally focused on realism and real-life military themes.

Oh, by the way, if you want to read interesting documents about the main future US plans for space warfare, check this next link, the document was written from anti-weapons of mass destruction groups, but it does have good information:

Thanks man, likewise sunny

Yeah, Richard is the english counterpart of Ricardo (Ricardo is specially used in Portugal and Spain).


A bit of history lol! :
" Means "brave power", derived from the Germanic elements ric "power, rule" and hard "brave, hardy". The Normans introduced this name to Britain, and it has been very common there since that time. It was borne by three kings of England including Richard I the Lionheart, leader of the Third Crusade in the 12th century. Famous bearers include two German opera composers, Richard Wagner (1813-1883) and Richard Strauss (1864-1949), as well as British explorer Sir Richard Burton (1821-1890) and American musician Little Richard (1920-). "

Ricardo is a name of Nordic origins.

By the way, Marc, the document that me and James were talking about is about the "X-Planes" (experimental), It's pretty good (it's like a free book Razz ):
http://history.nasa.gov/monograph31.pdf

To save it just go "File" and select "Save Page as" (just like guarding a normal webpage).

Also note that it's on .pdf (Adobe) format.
