    I have read somewhere that every F35 needs to be connected, through ALIS, to a server in the USA at least once a month. If it doesn't happen, the software either stops the plane from flying and/or the weapons to be used. Is this true? Have you ever head of this?

    Do you recall or can you provide a link to that claim? On the surface, such a requirement without more details, seems improbable.

    Seems highly unlikely, though almost a "fact" if you chance to read RT or TASS.

    All of the user nations have or are developing firewalls to restrict which information they're willing to share with ALIS. It strikes me that a system which requires less than full disclosure of sovereign info (like how many bombs have been dropped, or mission hours flown, or whatever) would be a bit uninformed as a airworthiness policeman.

    Or you can read RT. They have the gen.

    'oldsig127' has a good reply whilst this old 'propergander' artickle 'bout ALIS in WAnderland [see graphic] is NOT believable because it ain't PUBlisked by ROOSKIES (I jest): :)

    Did not realise the PDF is no longer at the URL origin - so I'll attempt to upload it here but may have to delete some pages to get it under a mythical file size? Nope all nine pages.

    Given the CONSTRAINTS in time & airspace demanded by the PARIS AIR SHOW you will probably not see a better F-35A demo for a while. Meanwhile this long video has shaky camera and nothing happening in the first minute and a half, but then you see DOJO probably practicing maneuvers for the airshow routine. It is NOT a complete routine however because often the pilot is replacing the aircraft for another maneuver so that it is where it should be during an actual airshow routine. This is a practice people - not the real deal.

    Watch this F-35A Demo Pilot (probably DOJO) slouch by at slow speed high angle of attack then LIGHT THAT CANDLE to power UP & AWAY! The 'nose down' maneuver is called a BUNT.

    No not abusive at all, it was a sprinkling of sarcasm, followed by a large sigh and rolling of the eyes

    Anything else ?

    Get a grip please. That info you said you were passing on has been plastered all over this forum for gawd knows how long.

    Not aimed at any one in particular.
    This is a professional defence forum and we do not take kindly to the integrity of it being impinged by sub par posts and content. Kindly remember that when wondering why Moderators, Defence Professionals and other posters pull you up about your posts.

    Trying to steer away from the one liner but really wanted to post this.

    Just remember, "can't turn, can't climb, can't run"

    The USAF is joining the USN AARGM-ER program, the newest HARM version. They also intent it to be able tomdommaoremthat anti-radiation mission profiles.
