This could be most exciting news for the Joint British Club & Malayan-Singapore Federation!

The joint development of our own 5th generation weapons!
Here we speculate the possible route for the development.

Probably will occur during the 2010 to 2020 period.

Cheerios!

The latest news includes a PURCHASE by

..........the Navy in Thailand of a "semi flat top" Dock Ship, Endurance Class. The Asian Trade Route States are joining the"Trend" in upgrading. We should probably see TAIWAN will buy at least 2 to 4 units once Singapore's ST Engineering develops the 160 meter Flat Top Dock Ships.

Using the Endurance Class platform, Singapore could built the "Hyuga Class" like FLAT TOP, Dock Ship!

Cheerios!

Sadly, NZ won't have on those ships as we're too small and really have no need for them. We have a small landing craft/dockship, but we really have little requirement for such a large vessel. Crewing it would also be a problem as the RNZN has manpower problems at present.

Dock ships don't cost a lot, somewhere between US$200 million for a small flat top 260 metre length, 12,000 - 13,000 tonne. Don't have to built it in New Zealand, can be done in Singapore - where scale would reduce cost. ST marine engineering has lots of oil, gas engineering works, plus jobs for the RSN. (it's the fittings, such as the anti missile guns, the asw systems, asm and active, passive radar, sonar plus decoy systems.

Operational cost can be reduced with use of "ship automation" - crew can be as few as 300.

Let's talk about the UAV

.............the trouble of the "manned" Jet, is the human pilot.

He tend to get tired, get "unconscious" at high G forces, gets cold feet in extreme battle conditions, and he can be a fatality in combat - reducing the effectiveness even if HARDWARE is available.

The "nano" circuit, the improvement in RAM, ROM, CCD, encrypted wireless capability and software skills and your conventional turbo jet and afterburner could really change the equations of an COMBAT CRAFT. Most of the "nano size" the computers, avionics, electro mechanical devices and existing missiles, stealth coatings etc., even existing turbo jet engines - in a lighter air frame!

So, the UAV unit has become viable now!

Cheerios!

The engine, just use the standard

.............mass produced, cheap 4.0 generation engines, the F100-PW-220.

Build an airframe, 50% lighter - using "improved" avionics, "nano sized"!
With a 6.0T airframe, using a STEALTH - radar absorbing air frame, and small sized electronics, it could carry about the same range of weapons in a standard F-16 plus have MUCH IMPROVED characteristics.

Cheerios!

With the UAV lighter frame

..................we can improve CLIMB RATE compared to the present 200 to 330 m/s rate in pre 5th generation "manned jets".

Such capability is vital to out perform the "manned" air superiority aircraft.

Cheerios!
