I was just curious, have no idea of what RAM would be made of. Thought you might have an idea about it.  :)

Good news about the Tomcats are always welcome!  :D

It is not too heavy, but it is damn expensive :o

carying on with my plane:

Frame F-4 (short nosed versions) for the looks only ;D
Engines: F-15 (PW-119 F-100-229)  My calculations ( :P) say it is gonna reach mach 2.6 at least
Radar: AWG-9
Digital control panel
Hibrid control system, both fly by wire and mechanical classic one, just in case there is the need of nukes ::)
IRST, FLIR
Integrated cannons on the root of the wing (near the fusselage) GSH-30... dunno what else (the one of the MiG-29, the most light and precise on the world) with 600 rounds.
Refueling probe, ("hiddable")
Small LERX until the under the air intake.
Rather little canards on the upper part of the air intake.

Relocate the fuel dump pipe to allow it to do the dump and burn :D :D 8) 8)

Almost all for now...

Thanks Globe, now i know. But since it is made out of iron, its due to be pretty heavy paint. But im guessing you dont need a thick coating.  :)

We should ask Goose what does he think about our aircraft (he is an aeronautical engenier)

Yupp, maybe he can give us some kind of answer.  :)

I read the red one, im not sure how good idea that is if you need to do a emergency landing in enemy territory during night.  ;) But it would defenatly be appriciated during airshows.  ;D

So you are going to have both front canards and those rear wings working together or seperatly (computer-controlled)?  :)

Yes, I know it is not very recent, but it is a way to honour it, for being such a nice piece of art and for being so close of retirement. maybe with my modifications it could stay a little bit more among us :)
