Avro Arrow redesign pitched as alternative to F-35 stealth fighter jets

Recommended Posts

A Canadian company is seeking to go back in time to help fly Canada’s air force into the future.

Documents obtained by the Global News program “The West Block” indicate an update to the storied CF-105 Avro Arrow was put forward as an alternative to the purchase of F-35 stealth fighter jets.

We have the know how to build planes. Just look at Bombardier (they know how to build planes), true they never built a fighter jet before. We have CAE that can built the simulators (they already have government contracts), plus we have Pratt & Whitney. It would be interesting to see different parts of the Aerospace industry here in Quebec and Canada, come together and build something that can rival the F-35 or maybe even be more superior.

 

I would rather see a Canadian built plane, protecting Canada :thumbsup:

j'ai débuté à lire les commentaire et ça la pris 2 comment avant d'avoir du Québec Bashing ^^

 

Bof, va lire une nouvelle a propos d'Obama sur un site Américain (légèrement) conservateur, ça prend 2 commentaires avant que quelqu'un dit le mot qui commence par "n...".

Les haineux d’extrême droite sont très bien organise sur internet, car j'imagine qu'ils ont rien d'autre a faire de leurs journées.

Ce que j'ai entendu du F-35 c'est que cet avion n'est pas du tout fait pour les besoins du Canada, mais plutot pour des guerres au Moyen-Orient. Les canadiens paieront cher et n'auront pas grand chose en retour.

If the legacy of the Saab Gripen has told us anything, it is that in this day and age, without international clients interested in a design, it is doomed to failure or the government will spend billions propping it up. Not only that but the Arrow was never, ever meant to be used as a multi-role fighter.

 

IMO: FAIL.

Le CF-105 était un avion en avance sur son temps, certes, mais optimisé pour les menaces des années 60... Réutiliser ce design pour un chasseur modernes serait un handicap : les besoins, les techniques de fabrication et nos connaissances en aérodynamisme/furtivité/etc ayant beaucoup évolué depuis. Tant qu'à dépenser de l'argent pour développer un nouvel intercepteur ultra rapide, aussi bien acheter des MiG-31 neufs : ce serait non seulement moins cher, c'est également un appareil moderne inégalé qui affiche depuis près de 30 ans des performances que même un CF-105 modernisé boosté aux stéroïdes ne pourra pas afficher.

 

Vrai que le F-35 ne répond pas à nos besoins (un seul moteur, faible rayon d'action, trop peu d'appareils pour un trop vaste territoire, intercepteur médiocre en raison de performances modestes). Le gouvernement devrait plutôt acquérir quelques intercepteurs à long rayon d'action pour une défense plus efficace du pays, plutôt que ce camion à bombes qu'est le F-35. Eurofighter, F-15E ou Su-35S seraient d'excellentes options.

 

Note à jesseps : Bombardier n'a jamais conçu d'avions de combat, mais Canadair a fabriqué de A à Z quelques centaines de chasseurs supersoniques pendant la guerre froide (Sabre Mk 6, CF-5, CF-104 entre autres) ainsi que certaines composantes majeures des F/A-18 des forces canadiennes et de la marine étatsunienne.

      Encore une fois pas certain ou afficher -- le gouvernement du Qc propose -- surprise surprise -- de nouveux reglements cette fois dans le domaine des condos. For those familiar with the more granular aspects of condo financing, building and selling any thoughts and comments?
       
      I've never bought a condo buy my first reaction is typical Qc government reacation in that more regulation is the answer. How do other jurisdicctions regulate the condo market and is Qc actually in need of updating rules and laws or is this needless meddling?

      having recently walked through griffintown from downtown towards verdun i found that while the area is filled with many condo projects most of them look they have been there for quite a while and they all seem to be waiting after one another to 'pop' from the ground ... in the meantime the place still looks awfully desolate and abandoned and you have to think that this has an effect on the health of those projects - it's not like the city lacks any plans for griffintown but don't you think they should be more proactive about it and inject some fund in the neighborhood to help spur the growth of all these residential towers instead of waiting for them to actually get built before they do anything ? chicken and the egg kinda situation now it seems but imo the city should be the first to do actually do something and not the private developers .. after all all these years down the road its the city that will still be collecting tax funds if anything gets built - not the initial investors

      Any guesses on what will become of the Royal Vic once the MUHC moves to the Glen Campus?

      It's actually patently ridiculous that this facility is still being used as a hospital, that would be like using a Ford Model T as an ambulance in 2013. Converting to condo is probably out of the question too given the extraordinary cost and the terrible layouts that it would yield. My guess is that the city, the provincial government nor McGill will want to pay for refurbishment or upkeep and it will become a dilapidated eyesore because Heritage Montreal and the like will oppose anything and no one will dare touch it!!
