I mean, the F-35 is a 5th generation fighter, and though it's US made, it is available to all Nato Allies, and several countries that aren't even in Nato.

It doesn't quite hold up to the F-22, but it is still a capable 5th gen fighter.

And the the Su-57 is questionable as to whether or not it counts as 5th generation. It's built according to 4th generation strategy, but it's definitely a far more advanced fighter than any 4th generation fighter. It does have some stealth and 5th generation design concepts, it just prioritizes dog fighting and maneuverability. There is still some debate on whether at a certain degree of large scale aerial combat it could become a superior fighter, but this is appearing less and less likely.

Also 6th generation fighters are already far closer than most people realize. Japan should have their first prototype F-3 in 2024, and China and US are both on similar timelines.

You would reckon wrong then…

There are plenty of Brahmins (highest caste) that are poor and plenty of Dalits that are rich (lowest caste).

The highest caste Brahmins are generally not the wealthiest caste either. They are just more well regarded in traditional society. Historically Brahmins have been poor and had very austere and spartan lives.

Brahmin priest for example only get paid 300 rupees a month ($4 USD). Which is close to poverty line in india.

The idea that “high class means wealthy” is a western notion.

That's an insanely misleading example since the priest caste there is supposed to live frugally.

It'd be much more telling if there was no correlation among wealth for castes in general rather than pointing out the priests live frugally and that there are outliers in any lower caste

TruthIsMaya t1_iwoqc4a wrote

What is your definition of upper caste and lower caste then?

Normally people just go with the two poles, dalits and Brahmins

And assume the priest class in Europe is analogous the Brahmin caste/Varna in india (it’s not as Brahmins are obligated to live modestly and donate excess wealth and assets)

The wealthiest varnas will likely be merchants, traders, artisans and rulers

Vasiya, shudra, Kshatriyas

But that is a huge group to generalise.

Until recently, exorbitant wealth acquisition was looked down upon and treated as a moral hazard in society as it is adharmic

Alright then let me clarify:

There is no such thing as a next gen engine. They are just engines. The F119 and F135 are impressive beasts. But the EJ200 has a thrust to weight in the same range. Snecma M88 is close to it. Thrust vectoring, several non 5th gen planes have such capabilities. Also 5th or 6th gen planes...claimed ones? developed ones? claimed to be developed ones? If we are talking about the latter then shooot we have many of those, even former Yugoslavia claimed to have developed a stealth fighter.

Calling out certain brands also makes little sense since most NATO members and NATO alies are codeveloping engines now a days. EJ200 was British/German/Italian/Spanish companies co-developing it. F136 upgrade to P-W F135 was a G-E/Rolls Royce co-development.

Japan has co-developed with G-E to produce their next engine for their sixt gen fighter. Their current F-2 [a home made F-16 upgrade under licence] uses a home built and upgraded F110.

No idea where China stole it's designs, but they did upgrade them past what they were.

The indian engine has been in a test/research stage for ages and will continue to be in a test research/stage for at least a decade or two.

Most of the development was still done my one of 2 Major countries so it does makes sense

>No idea where China stole it's designs, but they did upgrade them past what they were.

Chinese engine are very similar to Russian ones and they also took the same approach of upscaling engine like Russian which caused it to be very inefficient

>The indian engine has been in a test/research stage for ages and will continue to be in a test research/stage for at least a decade or two.

No, it just completed its test with new core recently in russia and it's dry variant will be uses in the Ghatak UCAV by 2024-2026

And if u just count making engine , then india has been making engine for su-30mki and Mirage 2000 from scratch for quiet a while

Also india is working in co-development with saffran or Rolls-Royce to develop a new 140kn engine

Whether it's Chinese, Russian or Indian. All the 5th-gen aircraft look like rip-offs of US designs. Funny how these countries can seem anti-US but spend so much time and money replicating US IP and technology.

I wonder if we'll ever see a time when another country does something new which hasn't been available in the US for decades. Or if we'll continue to live in a world where all countries continue to "follow the leader" by re-hashing something the US did already.

The word 'copy' is used by these guys in a very very general sense here. And it tells how much they understand the basics of aerodynamics and layouts.

A delta wing for example is used on multiple aircrafts, but the configuration of its layout makes/breaks everything. Now a person who has no idea of aircraft configuration would say.. Hey, you copied delta wing configuration from so and so... In most cases, even a double delta or a modified delta is called 'delta' by these "experts".

The motorcycle is just 2 wheels, a swing arm and a frame along with wheels, suspension etc. Good job telling people that all the motorcycles were copied from each other 😂

I find it funny that whenever copying is brought up, people like you will bring up the fact that the US copied 100 years ago. Before international IP and patent regulations were implemented. Yes, everyone copied from everyone a long time ago. Which is why international IP and patent protections were established to stop that from happening.

Should the world continue to allow theft or should the world continue the progress it's made in stopping theft? I would say the world is better with less theft but if you think stealing should be allowed, that's your opinion. I just hope you don't teach that to your children if you have any...

It is simply inefficient at doing the job it is supposed to be doing, much as how planned economies always fail for performing much the same way. Question is how.

If it is going to follow out approach to decarbonization, it will be maintained at ever increasing cost until finally someone finds a better way or reality crushes it all like a tin can at depth. People will wonder, point fingers, and blame some outside source. In truth, it's all because we as Americans are lazy proud ass holes who seem to enjoy being repeatedly anally raped by guys in suits because anything less is socialism that is somehow and intrinsically un-American. Americans are inept idiots with barely enough competent people around them to hold it all together.

It's hilarious how people used to hold up the ideal of the industrialist hero who made a fortune making the world work.

The first concept of stealth was developed by Soviet scientist Pyotr Ufimtsev. USA stole his work to to develop f-117.

Horten Ho 229 flying wing fighter-bomber, developed in Nazi Germany during the last years of World War II proved to have some stealth characteristics due to its lack of vertical surfaces (key characteristic of all stealth aircraft plus inherent feature of all flying wing aircraft like the Ho 229). Testing performed in 2008 by the Northrop-Grumman Corporation established that the aircraft's shape would have rendered the Ho 229 virtually invisible to the top-end HF-band, 20–30 MHz primary signals of Britain's Chain Home early warning radar, provided the aircraft was traveling at high speed (approximately 550 mph (890 km/h)) at extremely low altitude – 50–100 feet (15–30 m). Despite that, the Ho 229 was never intended to be a stealth aircraft.

Also by definition this would be first stealth aircraft and not American f-117

And the soviets start making experimental stealth jets in 1980s but couldn't continue a lot due to bad economy at that time and later their economy soon collapsed

The Nazi plane had stealth characteristics but was not stealth. Also, only one was ever made and it crashed. It had so many problems the nazis decided not to build them. It didn't work.

Recently, a high-speed rail project in my state was abandoned because of public protest. Also, the Bullet train project in Mumbai was stalled by the previous state government. It's not easy to get things done in India like China.

Lol what

India's railway modernisation efforts are possibly dwarfed only by China's (which is in an entirely different league of its own). India runs about 20,000 trains daily and a majority of them are electric. Indian coach car factories are pumping out about 15 new modern coaches every day to replace older coaches. There is also a new generation of semi-HSR trainset that has been developed in India and the factories are expected to produce 1 trainset per week in the coming year. There is also a tender put out for private players to produce 200 of these new trainsets in the next few years.

India has also undertaken a massive project of laying down new modern railway routes entirely dedicated to freight, which would free up existing lines for passanger services. There are also about 22 new metro rail lines under construction in cities across India. There is also a proper Shinkansen project puttering along (the progress is painfully slow imo). The scale of these things is gargantuan, so what did you base your moronic comment on?

Cool. And how many slums would be fixed or orphaned children's lives forever changed with the money that goes into purchasing ONE of these stupid planes? I swear, humans have completely lost touch with reality.

A lot of people will enter middle class as India develops and manufactures more and more arms in its own factories.

Thanks for your concerns though. Logic although is missing in your argument.

One hill I'm willing to die on is that trickle down economics just straight up doesn't work. I don't think investing in weapons manufacturing programs is the way to fix the level of poverty India was thrown into after what the English did to them. You need a more direct approach. The money needs to go towards sanitation, feeding the hungry, education. There are people who live worse than wild animals down the street from mansions full expensive b.s. I think that's wrong and humans have an obligation to not let entire populations of people living in filth and garbage.

Worse than wild animals 😂

Capital investments are need of the hour and I am glad the government is investing in it big time. This is in turn going to generate meaningful employment.

This is very different from the tax breaks, make rich people pay less tax "trickle down economics" approach that you're familiar in the west.

You should already know that the banking system in India is a generation ahead of the west. You should see how it is helping small businesses. If we were doing what you said we should be doing, we'd be nowhere.

Thanks for the advice, but no thanks.

Buddy, countries make those aircraft so that other countries know they have them and will be less likely to attack them given their capabilities. No one likes hearing the dollar amount the US spends on its defense budget but that's what also keeps the enemy from engaging us in a full blown war.
