If a F-35 crashed in Syria who would get the wreckage, Russia or China?

      That might be the worst case scenario, but yeah if it came down to it we’d NEVER let geopolitical enemies get their hands on an F-35. The CPUs alone are probably worth it.

        Oh bullshit. I remember asshats saying Iraq shouldn't get the PS-2 because it could guide ICBMs.

            I remember India trying to do just that at some point. It being India I'm sure it was very successful /s

            Half an hour later, the tank crew crawls out of the tank, sick to their stomachs but also squeaky clean.

          Using chips from cheap consumer electronics is fine for missiles which are relatively simple.
          Aircraft control however has a much higher computational load, since its airodynamics are pretty fucking complicated.
          It also needs to be orders magnitudes more reliable since modern fighters are inherently instable and impossible to steer by hand. If the computer fucks up the aircraft goes down.

          sounds like bullshit but a us lab national center for supercomputing applications built a supercomputer out of 70 ps2s running as a cluster and the air force research lab built one out of ps3s
          remember historically one of the first applications for supercomputers and computers in general was for icbm guidance
          it's stupidly complicated math to aim them properly since you're shooting a rocket into space and sending it down hypersonic

            It's a 6 variable physics problem, the launch of which is easy to calculate.
            inb4 "how is it only 6 variables"
            >air density
            >air direction
            >air speed
            >projectile mass
            >projectile speed
            >location of target

            The problem of the maths isn't "stupidly complicated", the problem is getting the computer accurate enough to know what is correct at any given moment of the variables. Did the missile hit a more dense pocket of air at 130k feet, did it reach a wind shear that gusted at 80mph in the upper atmosphere, how does the computer detect the change of motion and respond properly.

            Guided munitions were more a problem of programming it to react properly to sensory data within a reaction time window than "stupidly complicated" maths.

            ICBMs are piss easy to handle compared to an A2A missile intercept, and the only difference there is motion of the target.

        F-35 was designed to be hardened against reverse engineering, with less vulnerable and sensitive technologies than the F-22. It was one of the design requirements because it was from the start intended for export.

        It would be bad but not that bad, F-117 that chinks got could've been worse in terms of RAM materials, probably.

          They might know what we're using for RAM but that won't tell them how to use it.
          They might get a sample of our computers but the hardware is off the shelf components and the software was thermite'd.
          They might find a mostly intact AESA array but would need 5 years and trillions of dollars to make a production line for them.

          Seriously, the logistics for making electronics are mind boggling sometimes.

      Yes. Russian shills are creating slide threads en masse to preemptively slide some horrible war crime they committed, or some massive fuckup. I'd guess both.

    Didn't one crash in the South China Sea? Did the US retrieve it in whole, or did China get parts of it?

    China's not even worried about stealing a wrecked F-35 from some war zone. The US is selling a dozen F-35 jets to Singapore, and that tech is going straight to China after that!

    I imagine Israel would concentrate on heavily bombing the wreckage until it's unusable for anything but materials science. I guess USAF might join in if they figure out that Israel isn't accomplishing it well enough.
    What's the best way to destroy aircraft wreckage so the enemy can't recover stealth composites or RAM? Just dump napalm and thermite?

      Napalm followed by JDAM, like the army did with the longbows that got shot down
