    New USMC fighter for 2025

    In a move which has stunned the aviation world the United Stated Marine Corps has released CGI's of the Y-28 (supposedly F/A-29A in service) 'Jackhammer' advanced 6th Generation close support fighter. The aircraft, a single seat V/STOL design is set to make it's maiden flight at the turn of the next decade, the delay is said to be in part due to the difficulties of 6th Generation advanced technologies which will be used in the aircraft, which are rumoured to include the use of rail-cannon's and ERAAM (Extreme Range Air to Air Missiles) as well as voice and thought controlled flight/weapon systems.
    The Y-28 is set to be produced by a previously unheard of aircraft manufacturer based in California called G.T.C.
    The Y-28 will set new records in every field of aviation including time to alt', combat radius and even speed which is rumoured to be in excess of mach 3.5.
    According to G.T.C. spokesperson Andrew Levington 'The "Jackhammer" will set new world standards in terms of combat survivability and effectiveness, in short it will make the F/A-22 look like a Spitfire in comparison.'
    The 'Jackhammer' is said to take advantage of new stealth technologies, but no further comment was made.

    The first CGI of the F/A-29A Jackhammer in Marine Corp service is below:

    I hate it when these idiots do this. It should result in an automatic two month ban.

    I know those things, and they are not Y-28s. They are actually SA-43s from the TV series Space above and Beyond. Could you not get some Babylon 5 Starfuries? They are much cooler!

    Now were talking!

    I have every single episode on official VHS and intend to move onto the DVD's.

    As for the best from that series well it has to be the Thunderbolt class starfury!

    Loved the Hammerhead, and yes they were SA-43s (I've got a model of one in the loft), as for Starfuries, they were differnet (Got a model of one of those as well). I still prefer the Fighting Falcon II however :diablo: :diablo: :diablo:



    Oh have I not posted this one before :diablo:

    I always find it funny when a hollywood plane is mistaken for the real thing. Remember the confusion caused by the leaked images of the jets (Talons I think) from the film stealth.

    THAT was too funny. I had my brother (who should know better) send me a picture of one of the props on the deck of a carrier and asked me what it was and how come he'd never heard of it. In his and others' defense though THOSE were designed by NorthropGrumman so they at least LOOKED plausable.

    IMO SAAB was one of the most HORRIBLE sci/fi shows EVER!!!! (Pilots are NOT commandos! Or infantry!) ID4 was.......ok......thank god the aliens were running their systems on Microsoft Windows! B5 has got to be the greatest of all!!!! That is until I see if the writers at BSG can get themselves out of the hole they've dug the show into!

    Almost as bad as the 43 Sqn RAF F-16s in ID4 (with a Canberra Serial Number).

    The question is BIGVERN did you automatically know they were 43 Sqn markings or did you look it up afterwoods? :diablo:
