The Bone's speed and advanced terrain following flight systems would allow it to fly in contested airspace with minimal detection, something an AC-130 can't do, and its massive fuel stores and payload capacity mean it could loiter for hours over a target and deliver thousands of pounds of guided bombs between cannon volleys.Of course, it's not all sunshine and roses for the B-1B Gunship concept. Thanks to the swing-wing design, the B-1B may have a lower stall speed than you might find in some other supersonic platforms, but it still seems unlikely that the aircraft can fly slow enough to reliably use a cannon in close air support missions. https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=9o1qm_1562894064
what if it shot the gun and it was going so fast it ran into its own bullets
>>42015983I hate it when that happens.
>>42016032It happened with a Dutch F-16 a year or so ago.
inb4 they outsource the design to Indians for $9 an hour and dozens of them crash
>>42015567>Boeing Has a Plannigger, they can't even make a safe passenger plane anymore.
>>42016055How?Wouldn't the bullets already be travelling as fast as the plane when fired, and thus be going faster when they left the barrel?
>Boeing has a plan
>>42016032I remember Joint Operations had this for shooting out of vehicles.
>>42016063>inb4 they outsource the design to Indians for $9 an hour and dozens of them crashLast week I booked a flight for my vacation and had to go through a travel agent to make 100% sure that I don't fly with any Boeing planes. Once you read about how they build planes and write software for it, you'll never wanna fly on a Boeing again.
>>42016097bullets constantly decelerate due to drag. Jet maintains speed due to engine.
>>42016097Bullets are unpropelled once they leave the barrel and quickly slow down due to drag, while the aircraft maintains its velocity.
>>42016156Sounds like a job for the gyrojet.
>>42015567just Tor my shit up senpai.
>>42016097If they kept accelerating after they fired and nosedived to account for gravity they would eventually intercept the bullets as they slowed down to their terminal velocity thanks to drag.Assuming they don't hit the ground first.
Motherfucker. C&C Generals was not a game it was a simulation time travelers made to prepare America's future leaders for global conflict.
>>42016144Why don't you support corporations rights to maximize their profit margins by cutting overhead costs, commie?
>thread up for hours.>nobody posted a b1 bomber so that everyone can know what the fuck a b1 bomber is.

>>42016063>>42016144>>42016925It should be a federal offence to hire Indians for software/engineering work. India Superpower 2020 officially REVOKED.
>>42016144>have to fly to OK for work training >flight is booked on a Boeing jet S-should I be worried?
>>42017039Sorry, anon. But a fireball is in your future.
>>42015567>Boeing has a plan to try and milk billions of dollars from American taxpayers with an aircraft that was designed fifty years ago
>>42017085if you dont milk the cow it dies
>>42015983It happens: https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/aviation/a27967/the-fighter-plane-that-shot-itself-down/
>>42015567What's wrong with using the B1 as a bomber?
>>42017071yes. I will never fly Boeing unless I have absolutely no other choice and it's a life or death situation.just book flights that use other planes.here's what a former Boeing employee wrote about how Boeing works.
>>42017150I honestly thing Boeing is going to go bankrupt at this rate. Their military division isn't exactly doing so great either.
>>42017150I worked at Boeing for a decade. Plenty of funny stories to illustrate the incompetent management of the company
>>42015983How is that even possible unless your dumb enough to accelerate as your shooting.Aren’t the rounds already going as fast as you are? Aren’t they accelerating from that point?
>>42017163>I worked at Boeing for a decade. Plenty of funny stories to illustrate the incompetent management of the companyDo you feel confident flying on Boeing planes?
>>42017184Bullets lose velocity really fast. It doesn't take more than a couple hundred yards for even powerful bullets to go subsonic. 5.56 will go subsonic at only 600 yards for example, with a drop of only a few inches. Meaning a plane going at mach 1 would start to outrun the bullets at around half a kilometer. That all happens in less than a second, with very minimal bullet drop, and hundreds of 20cal bullets being spit out at 3000RPM.
>>42016958>India Superpower 2020 officially REVOKED.kek
>>42017201Not him but if you knew how many absolute fuckups are maintenance technicians youd probably pee your pants a bit. Theres a few good ones in the ocean of shitbirds.
>>42016055No it didn't, that was a Dutch f16's cannon fired while on the ground and hit another f16 parked up on the dispersal area
>>42017201I'd steer clear of any low line number aircraft for newer programs. The legacy quality systems and manufacturing systems are quite robust, but the old stewards of them retire every. Boeing management will chip away at these expensive systems constantly.Basically it's complicated and management will ride the knifes edge as long as they can get away with it.
>>42017285>Basically it's complicated and management will ride the knifes edge as long as they can get away with itDoesn't seem like they're getting away with it with the 737. Well, I'm sure Congress will be Congress and not call for investigations into the company

>>42017365imagine being so cucked you just snap to it say "yessir" and dump powder instead of what's supposed to be mineral oil.
>>42017334wish I were optimistic as you. One thing Boeing is exceptionally good at is lobbying and negotiating. At the end of the day 100,000s of people's jobs are on the line, billions in bonuses, global trade and prestige. Rumor has it Boeing has very little cash on hand cuz MUH STOCK BUYBACKS, MUH TANKER DELAYS, MUH AIRBUS KILLING US WITH SINGLE AISLE PRICING, MUH LACK OF 777 ORDERS, MUH 787 FAKE CASH FLOWbut who knows never underestimate the kikes ability to kike. Every once in awhile you'd see a real big shit walk through. Not some board member faggot or airline CEO, but nameless big nigger arms dealers and who the fuck knows globalists. They'd suck the air out of the room with their presence in a way that's difficult to describe. At the end of the day only the shareholders can hold anyone accountable, and their balls deep in it, in ways I don't pretend to understand>nothing ever happens
>>42017391you'd be shipped off to some shithole, and another nameless swinging dick would take your place, and it would have happened regardlessyou are there to perform a function, period. Billions of dollars on the line, you know how many pea brained faggots raise their voice in some fake protest to try and get noticed? Every fucking day. At some point you either do as youre told or they remove youthat's the problem with these new top down shareholder ran business models
>>42017391>not cucking the jew out of his money via malicious compliance
yeah, why not?
>>42016911The one that isn't the B-2 or B-52.
>>42015567>B-1B gunship>no B-1R though
>>42017774why not just send missiles or bombs at this point?
>>42017161Yeah if LM beats boring AGAIN for the 6th gen fighter competition Boeing is pretty much done producing fighters for the USAF/USN/USMC.Remember, LM made both the F-22 and F-35, Boeing is 0/2 at this point...
>>42018311Not him but totally agree. Add to that the fact that Airbus has BTFO Boeing and it doesn't look too good for them.
>>42017039Only if you can't wrap your head around the statistical odds of crashing
>>42017150>former Boeing employeeThat guy worked for McDonnell-Douglas. Which acquired Boeing using Boeing's own money back in 1997.
>>42015567>Supersonic GunshipWhy? What's the range on any conceivable gun you could mount on a B-1 and how fast will you close that range at supersonic cruise? You might as well point the guns backwards and shoot something you've already passed.
>>42017774How's the grandson doing?
>watches airbus vanish over and overkek
A friends dad does military aircraft maintenance for Boeing. Says in the McDonnell Douglas days he used to boast about working for them. Nowadays he's ashamed, and roots against them getting military and civilian contracts based on whats hes seen
>>42015567>the MIC has found another fancy way to steal money from the US government and its citizens on something that wont see the light of day and even if it did has no useits all so tiring
>>42015567What the fuck even is that video? Narrated by some fake computer voice, very trustworthy.
>>42017274That happened as well, but one also shot itself in mid-air.https://www.militarytimes.com/off-duty/military-culture/2019/04/08/dutch-f-16-makes-emergency-landing-after-plane-shoots-itself/
>>42016958>It should be a federal offence to hire Indians for software/engineering work.It almost is. Anything ITAR controlled (like, say, military aircraft) is US citizens only.
>>42017161>>42018311>implying Boeing won't just lobby for another contract nobody asked for and receive billions because the government is totally corrupt
>>42016612A functioning system is infinitely more important than Goldberg. >>42017391I’d do it just to fuck the whole thing over personally. Might as well enjoy the shitshow you’re forced to deal with and the paycheck that follows because some greedy higherup has a never ending hunger for shekels. >>42018111(((Contracts))) brought to you by the good ‘ol MIC.
>>42020177Exactly. Concerning yourself with decisions you're not compensated for is the true cuck. I remember when some Boeing executive gave a statement to the press that blew my mind. He said Boeing isn't an engineering company, they're an integrator.
>>42017150>JAL 123>32 minutes of flying up and down doing half banks and shitwhat the fuck>USAF hears everything, spots crash site, spins up rescue teams>Japan says no lol the JSDF will do it>the JSDF does not do it>people diewhat the fuck Japan
>>42015567Dale Brown is ROCK HARD right now
B1 rolls in and sinks fake chinese island
>>42017116holy shit that is exactly what i was thinking
Only if they mount it on the proposed V-tail conversion with new engines and external ordnance
>>42016911Imagine not knowing the power of the B-ONE
>>42017140He B1 has no nuclear mission
>>42017103what happened in your link is entirely different to what the post you are talking to is trying to say.
I saw one take off at a air force air show years ago. THing took off did a hair pin turn flew over my head and I pray to God and thanked him for having that aircraft on my team that on my side! I would hate to be on the wrong end of that thing
>>42023316I read a few of his books 15 years ago. There was a book of his where they took B-1s and made them stealthy and used them to shoot down Nork nuke missiles.I don't think this was it. Can't remember the name.
>>42021459Japan: Honor before everything
How has nobody posted the bOne benis gun?
>>42018311That is precisely why they will get another contract. The government will do anything to keep at least two defense companies in play, nevermind how good they actually are. Maybe it is even better in the long run to keep some competition alive, but it also means to keep companies alive past their due date.
>>42026853That looks like a nightmare to engineer tracking devices for
I'm more concerned about those nigger enlisted boom operator fucks PUTTING DENTS IN MY A-10
>>42026509I'm very sorry for shitting up your board
