    It means F35 can do near real time tactical ELINT. You used to have specialized aircraft like the RF-4C that was a dedicated surveillance platform.

      do you just empty the aircraft and fill it with recon equip or does it have any fighting capability?

        The early ones no. They would strip off most of the weight and replace it with surveillance equipment.
        Later on they start sticking sidewinders on it right before retirement.

          Ours never had weapons. Prob 80% photo recon 20% elint.

        If you mean if f-35 keeps any fighting capabilty then yes. F-35 doesn't need any additional stuff, plane was build around it's stealth and systems while maintaing it's capability to multirole.

        Modern technology has gone from needing an entire aircraft dedicated to carting around the electronics (even tough the processing hardware was on the ground) to just one chip on a board or maybe even just a additional couple of software threads to do the mission.
        Literally reduced an entire squadron of personnel and hardware to a chip.

          chips are the most potent Weapon of the century,
          that's why I believe US would defend Taiwan from china just too keep those chips from them

            As if china would know how to operate the fabs even if they captured them. It ain’t like the sprocket factory in The Jetsons.

        Real time would be no extra step between identifying the SAM signal and targeting information being provided to a weapon system about to fire on said target.
        What the pic related in OP said was the data was provided to fellow NATO countries. Reading between the lines says that then one or more of them might be providing the data to Ukraine so they can target the systems. All of those extra steps allow enough time for a mobile system to get far enough away to avoid destruction.

      One F-35 is faster to triangulate an emitting radar than 3 F-16CJ Wild Wiesels linked up.

        >triangulate
        Well, it can be done since the plane knows where it isn't. But seriously impressive shit.

          Yeah, there are a couple different techniques it uses to do it, but its EW suite is supposed to be able to geolocate emitters with enough accuracy for a firing solution passively. All at more than double the distance that the emitter would even start to pick the F-35 up at, due to the inverse square rule with radar. A squadron of F-35s can also link and share radar receivers, allowing it to act as a multistatic radar set-up.

          The plane is mobile, anon. You need readings/bearings at two or more points, but you don't need them exactly simultaneously if the target is not moving.

            I already told you it's doable because the plane knows where it was. Baka. Also it's not diangulation.

          you are thinking in WW2 terms anon, modern ESM sets use multiple antennas and TDOA or interferometric techniques to measure the wavefront directly

            That's not radio triangulation. Yes it's radio direction finding but via other methods like pseudo-range multilateration.

            Triangulation with a single plane would have to involve collecting multiple bearings over time.

    I doubt F-35s were actually doing this, but they were certainly designed with the capability to.

    It's plausible, F-35 has decent SIGINT capabilities. It's not like anyone is hiding it, you can see RC-135 flights on ADS-B trackers

    They mean F-35 has a really good RWR/ESM system that can triangulate radar sites in Russian-held territory of Ukraine without entering Ukrainian airspace

    while the f-35 were shooting down A-50s, they also saw some SAM sites and told people about them

    It’s steadily introducing the public to the fact multiple f35s have been shot down over ukraine and or the pilots defected

    They don't have to lie or embellish, they're an actual F-35 user and has no skin in the game in Ukraine/Russia.

    The impressive thing here would be the range wouldn't it? The nearest point from NATO (romania) to Russian controlled Ukraine (the Kinbun spit or whatever it's called) is a bit over 100miles. being able to pinpoint defenses from that far sounds pretty decent. And it's presumably picking up stuff a bit further from the Spit.

      Maybe it happened earlier in the war during the Kyiv feint
