RARE VIDEO Russian Air Force Su-24 on bombing mission.
Russian air force bomber aircraft The Sukhoi Su-24 (NATO reporting name:
Fencer) is a supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft developed in the
Soviet Union. This variable-sweep wing, twin-engined side-by-side
two-seater carried the USSR's first integrated digital navigation/attack
system. It remains in service with former Soviet air forces and various
air forces to which it was exported.
The Su-24 has a shoulder-mounted variable geometry wing outboard of a
relatively small fixed wing glove, swept at 69°. The wing has four sweep
settings: 16° for take-off and landing, 35° and 45° for cruise at
different altitudes, and 69° for minimum aspect ratio and wing area in
low-level dashes. The variable geometry wing provides excellent STOL
performance, allowing a landing speed of 230 km/h (143 mph), even lower
than the Sukhoi Su-17 despite substantially greater take-off weight. Its
high wing loading provides a stable low-level ride and minimal gust
The Su-24 has two Saturn/Lyulka AL-21F-3A afterburning turbojet engines with 109.8 kN (24,700 lbf) thrust
each, fed with air from two rectangular side mounted intakes with splitter
In early Su-24 ("Fencer A" according to NATO) aircraft these intakes had
variable ramps, allowing a maximum speed of 2,320 km/h (1,440 mph), Mach
2.18, at altitude and a ceiling of some 17,500 m (57,400 ft). Because the
Su-24 is used almost exclusively for low-level missions, the actuators for
the variable intakes were deleted to reduce weight and maintenance. This
has no effect on low-level performance, but absolute maximum speed and
altitude are cut to Mach 1.35 and 11,000 m (36,100 ft). The earliest
Su-24 had a box-like rear fuselage, which was shortly changed in production
to a rear Exhaust shroud more closely
shaped around the engines in order to reduce drag. The revised aircraft
also gained three side-by-side antenna fairings in the nose, a repositioned
braking chute, and a new ram-air inlet at the base of the tail fin. The
revised aircraft were dubbed "Fencer-B" by NATO, but did not merit a new
The Su-24's fixed armament is a single fast-firing GSh-6-23 cannon with 500
rounds of ammunition, mounted in the fuselage underside. The gun is covered
with an eyelid shutter when not in use. The warload includes various
nuclear weapons. Two or four R-60 (NATO AA-8 'Aphid') infrared missiles are
usually carried for self-defense by the Su-24M/24MK.
Initial Su-24s had basic electronic countermeasures (ECM) equipment, with
many Su-24s limited to the old Sirena radar-warning receiver with no
integral jamming system. Later-production Su-24s had more comprehensive
radar warning, missile-launch warning, and active ECM equipment, with
triangular antennas on the sides of the intakes and the tip of the vertical
fin. This earned the NATO designation "Fencer-C", although again it did not
have a separate Soviet designation. Some "Fencer-C" and later Su-24M
("Fencer-D" by NATO) have large wing fence/pylons on the wing glove portion
with integral chaff/flare dispensers; others have such launchers scabbed
onto either side of the tail fin.
Syrian civil war
During the escalation of the Syrian Civil War, starting in November 2012,
around four months after the first air raids from different fixed wing
aircraft started, and after 18 months since the beginning, the first Su-24
medium bombers were filmed dropping their heavy payload on the rebels.
The first and to date only Su-24 loss, an upgraded MK2 version, was downed
by an Igla sufrace-to-air missile fired by the insurgency already on 28
November near the town Darat Izza in the Aleppo Governorate. One of the
pilots, Col. Ziad Daud Ali, was injured and was filmed being taken to a
rebel field hospital.
Furthermore, Syrian Fencers have reportedly been involved in
near-encounters with NATO warplanes. The first of such incidents occurred
in early September 2013, when Syrian Fencers of the 819th Squadron
(launched from Tiyas airbase) flew low over the Mediterranean and
approached the 14-mile air exclusion zone surrounding the British airbase
in Akrotiri, Cyprus. The jets turned back before reaching the area due to
two RAF Eurofighter Typhoons being scrambled to intercept them. Turkey also
sent two F-16s. The Fencers were possibly testing the air defenses of the
base (and their reaction time) in preparation for a possible military
strike by the U.S, the United Kingdom and France in the aftermath of the
chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, Damascus allegedly committed by the
Surviving Su-24M models have gone through a life-extension and updating
program, with GLONASS, upgraded cockpit with multi-function displays
(MFDs), HUD, digital moving-map generator, Shchel helmet-mounted sights,
and provision for the latest guided weapons, including R-73 (AA-11
'Archer') air-to-air missiles.
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

MONSTER TRUCK US military Ultra Heavy Lift Amphibious Connector
New concept for the US Marine Corps A potential replacement for the
Marines' 20-year-old air cushioned ship-to-shore craft has foam runners and
a massive payload.
Officials with the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab, in conjunction with the
Office of Naval Research, conducted a technical assessment earlier this
month with a half-scale version of the Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious
Connector, a high-tech craft being developed as an option to replace the
Landing Craft Air Cushioned as a vehicle to bring troops, vehicles and gear
ashore. The UHAC has also been discussed as a replacement for the Landing
Craft Utility, another Navy ship-to-shore connector, but Warfighting Lab
officials said they were especially interested in how the UHAC stacked up
against the LCAC.
The Navy's LCACs traditionally deploy with and operate from amphibious well
deck ships and often transport Marines to and from shore as part of
training or Marine Expeditionary Unit deployments.
Unlike the LCAC, which acts as a hovercraft with an inflatable skirt, the
UHAC has air-filled tracks made out of foam that can propel it through the
water and on land. The footprint of the UHAC is significantly larger: 2,500
square feet of deck area to the LCAC's 1,800. But this means the UHAC can
handle a much larger payload. While the LCAC can carry 65 tons of gear, the
UHAC can handle 150 tons, or 190 with an overload payload.
Capt. James Pineiro, Ground Combat Element branch head for the Warfighting
Lab's Science and Technology Division, said the UHAC would be able to carry
three main battle tanks ashore, at some 60 tons apiece.
Another advantage to the UHAC, Pineiro said, is its range: 200 nautical
miles to the LCAC's 86. And unlike the LCAC, when the UHAC arrives onshore,
it can keep on going, thanks to low pressure captive air cells in the
tracks. At about a pound per square inch, the UHAC can cross mud flats and
tidal marsh areas. And the tracks can crawl over a sea wall of up to 10
feet, he said — all important features during a beach assault.
"You could look at the amphibious invasion of Inchon, during the Korean
War," Pineiro said. "there were significant mud flats there, and a 26-foot
tide difference. At low tide it went a couple of miles out. That was a
problem during the invasion of Inchon."
Where the UHAC does come up short is in water speed. Because of the drag
created by the foam tracks, it can only travel at 20 knots, half the speed
of the LCAC.
But Pineiro said he anticipated that mission commanders would be able to
work around this drawback.
"When you get into planning ops, you kind of plan for your capability," he
Officials with the project said the concept for the UHAC originated in
2008, with a goal to design an amphibious vehicle with low PSI. The Office
of Naval Research accepted a concept design for the vehicle from the
company Navatek, Inc., and the project has been in development since then,
with the construction of a half-scale demonstrator and an at-sea
demonstration in 2012.
The half-scale model is still massive at 42 feet long, 26 feet wide and 17
feet high. It was in Honolulu in early March to complete a limited
technical assessment to demonstrate its capabilities. The test, Pineiro
said, involved launching the UHAC from a simulated ship's well deck with an
internally transported vehicle aboard. The UHAC brought the vehicle to the
shore and then returned to the ship, he said.
The assessment is preparation for a larger demonstration of the UHAC's
abilities at the Advanced Warfighting Experiment, also in Hawaii, that will
take place in conjunction with the international exercise Rim of the
Pacific 2014 this summer.
"We want to make sure the UHAC can perform," Pineiro said.
Future steps following this summer's experiment remain unclear as testing
continues. But according to the Marines Seabasing Required Capabilities
Annual Report for 2013, published in December, product managers with ONR
are working with Defense Department agencies to secure funding for
"Development of a full-scale technology demonstrator is a possibility," the
Amid budget cutbacks, one feature is sure to catch the eye of acquisition
officials: because of the technology involved in constructing and operating
a UHAC, ONR estimates per-unit production and maintenance costs would be
less than half that of an LCAC, officials with the project said.
The Navy began purchasing its 91 LCACs in the early 1980s at per-unit costs
ranging from $22 million to $32 million, or between $45 and $75 million
with inflation adjusted.

WORLDS BEST us air force F-22 Stealth Aircraft
The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine, all weather
stealth tactical fighter developed for the United States Air Force (USAF).
Developed by Lockheed Martin and Boeing for the USAF's Advanced Tactical
Fighter program, the aircraft was designed primarily as an air superiority
fighter, but has additional capabilities including ground attack,
electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles.
The aircraft was variously designated F-22 and F/A-22 prior to formally
entering service in December 2005 as the F-22A. Despite a protracted
development and operational issues, the USAF considers the F-22 a critical
component of their tactical air power, and claims that the aircraft is
unmatched by any known or projected fighter. Lockheed Martin claims that
the Raptor's combination of stealth, speed, agility, precision and
situational awareness, combined with air-to-air and air-to-ground combat
capabilities, makes it the best overall fighter in the world today. Air
Chief Marshal Angus Houston, former Chief of the Australian Defence Force,
said in 2004 that the "F-22 will be the most outstanding fighter plane ever
The high cost of the aircraft, a lack of clear air-to-air missions because
of delays in Russian and Chinese fighter programs, a ban on exports, and
development of the more affordable and versatile F-35 led to the end of
F-22 production.[N 1] A final procurement tally of 187 operational aircraft
was established in 2009 and the last F-22 was delivered to the USAF in
The F-22 Raptor is a fifth generation fighter that is considered
fourth-generation in stealth aircraft technology by the USAF. Its dual
afterburning Pratt & Whitney F119-PW-100 turbofans incorporate pitch axis thrust vectoring
with a range of ±20 degrees; each engine has a maximum thrust in the
35,000 lbf (156 kN) class. Maximum speed without external stores is
estimated to be Mach 1.82 during supercruise and greater than Mach 2 with
afterburners.[N 2] According to former Lockheed chief test pilot Paul
Metz, the Raptor has fixed-geometry inlets and has a greater climb rate
than the F-15. The F-22 is the first operational aircraft to combine
supercruise, maneuverability, stealth, and sensor fusion into a single
To withstand stress and heat, the F-22 makes extensive use of materials
such as high-strength titanium alloys and composites whose structural
weight percentages are 39% and 24% respectively. The use of internal
weapons bays allows the aircraft to maintain a comparatively higher
performance while carrying a heavy payload over most other aircraft due to
a lack of drag from external stores. It is one of only a few aircraft that
can supercruise or sustain supersonic flight without the use of
afterburners, which consume vastly more fuel; targets can be intercepted
which subsonic aircraft would lack the speed to pursuit and an
afterburner-dependent aircraft lack the fuel to reach. The F-22's
design has its engines positioned close together, so there is no room for
weapons bays on the same plane as the engines; the bays were placed around
and below inlet ducts. The inlets' twisting design adds extra weight and
recovery from stalls is complicated if thrust vectoring fails.
The F-22 is highly maneuverable at both supersonic and subsonic speeds. It
has high departure resistance, enabling it to remain controllable at
extreme pilot inputs. The Raptor's thrust vectoring nozzles allow the
aircraft to turn tightly, and perform extremely high alpha (angle of
attack) maneuvers such as the Herbst maneuver (or J-turn), Pugachev's
Cobra, and the Kulbit. The F-22 is also capable of maintaining a
constant angle of attack of over 60° while maintaining some control of
roll. The aircraft's high operating altitude also gives it a
significant advantage over legacy fighters.
The F-22's combination of speed, altitude, agility, sensor fusion and
stealth work together for increased effectiveness. Altitude, speed, and
advanced active and passive sensors allow targets to be spotted at
considerable ranges and increase weapons range. Altitude and speed also
complement stealth's effectiveness by increasing distance between the
aircraft and ground defenses and giving defensive systems less time to
The Raptor has three internal weapons bays: a large bay on the bottom of
the fuselage, and two smaller bays on the sides of the fuselage, aft of the
engine intakes. It can carry six medium range missiles in the center
bay and one short--range missile in each side bay; Four of the medium
range missiles can be replaced with two bomb racks that can each carry one
medium-size or four smaller bombs. Carrying armaments internally
maintains the aircraft's stealth and lowers drag for higher speeds and
