  • » Is stealth still relevant? by PatrickDup
  •    Stealth technology is very expensive. And is it still relevant on the modern battlefield.

    Is stealth technology still relevant. Stealth is an extremely expensive very secretive high level military technology that has been unbeatable for about 20 years but is that still a reality. Countries like Germany, Great Britain, France and Italy have pooled their resources and created the conventionally un-stealthy but highly maneuverable Euro-fighter 2000 Typhoon. When these 4 advanced countries have ignored stealth and built the EF-2000 what do they know that we dont. The EF-2000 is fitted with PIRATE, Passive, Infrared, Airborne, Tracking, Equipment. It detects the most minute of heat signatures at more than a hundred km away. Also consider a country like Greece that has enemies like turkey who are part of stealth aircraft projects like the JSF, thus causing Greece to have bought the EF-2000 as an improvement on its reasonable but very average air force. Is the Eurofighter 2000 the European nations answer to the stealth under development in rival countries like India, China, and Russia? And is it the Europeans message to the Americans that they are also top players in world affairs who can punch their own weight or above it? Tell us what you think.

@Lenin

But the CIS military capability can hardly combat the US unless you decide to go MAD.

And...the CIS isn't a nation, and it's pretty far from developed. Even Russia is just a developing country.

And most CIS European members are also EU members and most possibly will turn against Russia and its allies if war breaks out.

And yeahno Russia may not have the tech required to detect stealth planes. Their military is just a shadow of their former selves.

And nono I don't like stealth planes because they are defenseless against microwave weapons. Advanced microwave weapons will increase the irrelevance of stealth tech.

And mad high speed causes a hell lot of noise, thank you very much. Outrun AA missiles? That speed greatly reduces a human-piloted plane's combat ability. Even Indian missiles are faster than snails.

yes, if two developed nations fought, such as CIS and US, stealth technology would be useless as both could detect each other, but like with Russia vs Somalia, yes The pirates wouldn't know what hit them.

It depends how stealthy we can get it I suppose.

An invisible bomber attacking in daylight would destroy morale anywhere.

@SgtPeppers, The reason people don't replace the pilot with a computer system such as you are suggesting as that it removes one crucial part, the Human nature. The reason the Human nature is so dangerous is it's unpredictability; and I have yet to find a computer displaying the same characteristics.

but stealth planes are bombers and and Euro fighter is, well a fighter  they are as equivalent as the fork and the spoon, stealth are needed to politely destroy other people stuff, other (sobering people) stuff, so is relevant?, well as relevant as the "defense of the foreign interests"  whatever that means.

Starting with war, and not for almost everything, information is very important. Aside from bluffing and other, stealth is a very good way to control information. An attack will be a lot more effective if it is done by surprise. Even better is the concealment of information to gather information: As you know, nowadays, most military chains of command will never act without confirmation of a target. So yes, stealth will be more important than ever.

@samudragupt 

Yes, and a Pakistani officer would never spread propaganda (Sarcasm)

Do you have any sources from western nations

Note: Canadian pilots have outflown virtually everyone in international dogfighting competitions in the past, a good piolet in a lousy plane cane beat the vice versa

RAF Eurofighter Typhoons 'beaten by Pakistani F-16s' ???????????

 

Pakistani pilots flying modernised versions of the 1970s-vintage F-16 Falcon fighter have beaten the RAF's brand-new Eurofighter Typhoon superfighters during air combat exercises in Turkey, according to a Pakistani officer

@SgtPeppers I totally agree with you. And also dont forget that the europeans have already chosen to ignore stealth by building a conventional non stealthy but very fast and very maneuvreable jet fighter. And this plane, EF2000 Typhoon has the PIRATE system which can detect the most minut infrared heat signatures at more than 100 km's away and i believe this is to combat stealth and make it obsolete and give the euros back the edge in the air over people with stealth.

@PatrickDup 

Ok then, stealth is a technology which cost billions to develop, and yet it has no real function. What is the point at putting that much effort into hiding an aircraft when you could simply use the same time and money to create a plane that can out run a missile, it would not be difficult. Better yet, why not build rockets, they can hit the same target, but without danger to pilots and are to small for most radar systems to notice and almost impossible to destroy even if they are picked up.

@PatrickDup 

Not really, the technology is only useful for special ops, since most dangerous countries would not have the technology to hit any advanced fighter, stealth or otherwise
