HP/L ratio is very, very good. It looks like there will be a revision in the specs of TB3 and Anka. In Anka, a payload capacity of around 400/500kg can be achieved with a flight endurance of around +24h. Similarly, the TB-3 payload can be revised well above 400 kg.
Good informative paper.
Later engines may well have 4th generation blades. But as you can see from below paper that 4th generation blades were still being developed by December 2004.And yet i read from multiple sources that F119 uses fourth gen blades.
From a gas turbine engine point of view you are correct. It would also mean that we would need maintenance crews that understand turbine engine technology.It would be an assault on the crew's ears.
No it doesn't. It only has thrust throttling like the F16. The exhaust nozzle expand and shrinks but does not redirect.
