We (Argentina) have already got the solution 8) 8) 8) bio-jet fuel.

Just take a look:

I added the UAVs and I restarted the poll.

After reading all the views for and against the listed atttributes, I'm still maintaining my opinion of Stealth being the most important. Happy to keep debating it too, hehe ;D

You guys are being too narrow-minded. Think of the possibilities. Forget the fuel. Work on an engine that consumes so little of it it's almost negligible. We could just use hydrogen for the first little take-off, (Adding some lighter-than-air possibilities) and then use the rotary motion on each engine (In twin engs) to power the other. Sure, difficult, and absorbs a lot of power, but you could say have the fuel at only half the original consumption rate.

And what about lift. The take-off stage uses the most fuel, so you get the picture.

bio-jet fuel sounds like a good idea. But eventually you'll use up all that too. Or at least the basic resources... I'm thinking fill up with your evenings trash then use nitrous oxide to burn so hard you have rocket fuel.  ;D

Ah, the sub bit. If the sub blows up in the ocean there's a lot less of a chance that nearby folks will get affected. If a plane blows up over NYC all the beautiful irradiated bits and pieces come falling down and everybody dies of cancer.

and if a nuke explodes in the ocean the radiation gets washed around the world, fish die, whales die, people die and camels die.

Everyone dies.

You forget that by the time the radiation reaches the shore, it'll be so dispersed that it's not enough to kill a gnat. Okay, bad analogy. The Gnat aircraft can't be very much harmed by radiation.

Harm an ant, then.
