  • Wake up Canada.

    Let's send a message. In a fight you want to deck your opponent, With the F-15 case closed. I want my tax dollars to mean something. As a country we always try to keep everybody happy. This is about world respect and showing our military that we have their backs.

  • F-15 c 2040 for Canada

    Canadian variant of advanced f-15. At least 2 squads. For sovereignty enforcing. Plus 2 squads of f-35 for nato missions. We said we were in on the f-35 plus it would get us in on tech. Balance of fighters could be f-18 / f-18 supers. The saab's could also replace f-18.

  • F-35 Still Loses Dogfights Against Cold War-Era F-15C Eagles in Exercises.

    The EM [Energy Manoeuvrability] of the F-35A is substantially inferior to the F-15C variant with F100-PW-220s [engines], due to a smaller wing, similar weight, and ~15,000 lbs less in afterburner thrust. In addition to its thrust deficiency, the F-35’s acceleration is hampered by a relatively wide, heavy, high-drag fuselage and its turn performance suffers from comparatively small wings. This creates the highest wing loading (weight per square foot of wing) of any contemporary fighter, significant because the higher that measure, the poorer the plane’s manoeuvrability.

  • F-35 Still Loses Dogfights Against Cold War-Era F-15C Eagles in Exercises.

    Here is a new report that the F-15s from Kadena, Japan, have beaten the F-35A in dogfights.

    As the F-35 can't beat the F-16 Fighting Falcon it's suppose to replace in a dogfight. The F-35s dogfighting against the F-15 jets still sometimes lose in a mock dogfight, during the DACT (Dissimilar Air Combat Training).

    This is a second time the F-35 has lost in a WVR (Within Visual Range) engagement against the F-15. The F-35 will hopelessly be useless and outclassed by the Russian/Chinese 4th, 4.5 and 4++ Generation fighters, let alone 5th Generation fighters.

    This confirms that the F-35 has serious air combat deficiencies - http://www.pogo.org/straus/issues/weapons/2015/leaked-f-35-report-confirms-deficiencies.html

    This just goes to show you that the F-35 is certainly not an air superiority fighter and remained at a distinct energy disadvantage for every engagement. Totally incapable!!!

  • Canada certainly needs an alternative to the failed F-35A Just So Failed (JSF).

    If Israel has proposed a deal to purchase additional new built Boeing F-15 Advanced Eagles, why isn't Canada pushing for the same thing?

    Buying “new legacy” 4++ Generation fighters are still FAR more cost-effective, a design proven and combat proven as the price per aircraft is FAR cheaper than the F-35, while offering FAR more lethality and survivability than the F-35.

    How the F-35 has fallen desperately short, and bottom line in the long term you don't feel safe.

  • Still too expensive and not needed.

    You don't need stealth for Canada's missions. Arctic and air patrols do not need stealth or BVR. No Canadian is going to shoot down an unidentified aircraft over Gander without visually identifying it. Even overseas... Missions are rarely first strike and almost never against first world countries. These planes are now $100M+. Far better to get several less expensive, non-stealthy Super Hornets. Take the extra $20B dollars and pay down the deficit or spend it on things Canada's military needs -- transport aircraft, transport ships, etc.

  • Canada Doesn't Need an F-15 Silent Eagle

    In reality, Canada doesn't necessarily need an F-15 Silent Eagle. The cost of this aircraft would be astronomically high, and the country doesn't have any particular use for it. Canada has better uses for its money and shouldn't be making such unnecessary purchases when its own economy could use some help.

  • I think the RCAF shouldn't buy the F-15 Silent Eagle

    In this day and age, conventional warfare is becoming redundant. Unless Canada becomes a war mongering state, then there is little to no need for an upgrade in aircraft. Aircraft costs are rising higher as the research and development for them takes longer. Canada has little to gain from buying F-15 Silent Eagles, it could be better spent in infrastructure, medical research and renewable energies. America dumps billions into military research, why should Canada? It is okay to buy maybe 1 or 2 of these for research, but why should Canada buy a fleet? What is going to attack Canada from the air which cannot be engaged by fourth generation aircraft?

  • Super Hornet is a cost effective aircraft to meet Canada,s needs

    -interdiction aircraft are important but improved drone capabilities will likely emerge over the next decade that will circumvent stealth requirements
    - The option for a Growler suite to complement the Super Hornets can offer more cost effective ecm and tracking. This can contribute effectively to NATO responsibilities
    - Dual engine reliability for Canadian conditions in a proven rugged airframe
    - Cost savings can be put to better use on future aircraft R and D as new technologies emerge. $70m Super Hornet vs F15 or f 35 $120m USD price tag steep with the anticipation of these changes
