How do you feel about business jet AWACS? Posted on May 1, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor How do you feel about business jet AWACS?
If it works, it works, and you have the civilian sector pulling down your repair and maintenance costs.
Every time I see the wordy business I think of bussy
you have a problem
Whats the point of such short ranged AWACs?
Bombardier Global Express 6000 actually has a higher range than the E-3, E-7, Wedgetail, etc.
Lmao I forgot how these things take richfags across continents.
You have no idea. I work in the charter industry, I can see business trips with a flight cost of $400,000+ on our schedule
Good morning i hate rich "people"
Tell your people that dispatch is gay
...I am dispatch
Make sure you tell pilots to go to the right goddamn airport, you fucking donkey.
Fix my planes, greasemonkey
t. Person who actually makes the company money
I haven't turned wrenches (professionally) in like 4 years.
I'm in management.
But I left a part 135 charter/EAS airline back in December. Dispatch constantly did stupid stuff that would cost tens of thousands (but really so did MX Control).
Radar doesn't spin so its inferior
Nobody tell him
The other way around tard
howabout the bizjet SIGINT plane?
Not enough antenna. Needs more.
artemis is cool
Looks like some kind of dollar store comms / ELINT plane, not an AWACS.
its a Saab globaleye awacs
Luv me some Globals
My ex from my NJ days worked for Dassaikt Falconjet but she knew French talk.
What's he doing there, huh?
I wouldn't worry about it.
Not being a member in Nato Intel gathering
Mosaic warfare is best warfare.
I'm the general and I want it to spin!
I fucking love AWACS.
We need more big planes with attachments.
Bring back the YAL-1.
some look beter than others
If a learjet and a b-1 made love
This is a private business jet. How do you feel about it being used as the airframe for an AWACS?
They are a stop-gap measure as we move away from dedicated AWACS platforms. The US had been hoping that the f-35s meshed together would provide the same capability without the vulnerability of centralizing it but the found that the technology still falls short. This is why they sat around on HALF CENTURY OLD planes refusing to upgrade and have only as of last year finally given up hope and are scrambling to acquire the e-7s. 6th gen aircraft will likely be the final nail in the coffin for them (for the US at least).
While its understandable, I feel like in hindsight the huge cost and expertise that the Chinese have put into development of the KJ-2000 and KJ-600 are going to be viewed as a waste and misstep.
If your nation doesnt have E7, RC135 and P8s your probably poor and not very good
Technically the US doesn't have any E-7's yet. Care to rephrase?
sounds like poorfag talk to me
Can you name a single nation that is currently fielding all 3 of those platforms then? Is your take that literally all of them are "poorfag?"
The UK is in the process of fielding E-7s, after which it'll check all the boxes
The same is true of the US but apparently that was not enough. So, I ask again:
>Can you name a single nation that is currently fielding all 3 of those platforms then? Is your take that literally all of them are "poorfag?"
anon didn't say "all 3" though
>If your nation doesnt have E7, RC135 and P8s
English, motherfucker, do you speak it?
Quit being an autistic cunt.
Basic language comprehension isn't autism, no matter your lack of it makes you look retarded.
Would "anon" like to rephrase his question?
