In his book, "Sled Driver", SR-71 Blackbird pilot Brian Shul writes: "I'll always remember a certain radio exchange that occurred one day as Walt (my back-seater) and I were screaming across Southern California 13 miles high. We were monitoring various radio transmissions from other aircraft as we entered Los Angeles airspace. Though they didn't really control us, they did monitor our movement across their scope.
I heard a Cessna ask for a readout of its ground speed."90 knots" Center replied. Moments later, a Twin Beech required the same. "120 knots," Center answered. We weren't the only ones proud of our ground speed that day as almost instantly an F-18 smugly transmitted, "Ah, Center, Dusty 52 requests ground speed readout." There was a slight pause, then the response, "525 knots on the ground, Dusty." Another silent pause.

The F-58A Hammer is an 6th+ generation ultra-long range, hypersonic heavy fighter designed for air dominance and rapid strike missions. Its design is based off of the proven F-33A Rapier II hypersonic multirole fighter, and thus shares much of its technology. In addition to the proven technology inherited from its predecessor, the aircraft also brings new technologies to the fighter world. The most notable of these technologies include SynVision, which is a form of synthetic vision designed for this, and other higher performance aircraft. It allows unparalleled situational awareness when compared to convention cockpit designs along with reducing RCS and aerodynamic drag. In addition to SynVision, F-58 also uses a more advanced variant of EO-DAS designed just for this aircraft.
Other advanced technologies include DAESA (Distributed Actively Electronically scanned Array), which places multiple AESA panels in various places around the aircraft to provide 360˚ ra

Korrasami – Meet the World
Author’s note: I wrote the story so the wedding happened a day after the battle. It's just silly to have weeks or just days pass without any development between Korra and Asami (mainly).
Asami said she needed a vacation. Did they sit around for days or even weeks before that? Working? Or just lounging around NOT talking to each other? It NEEDED to happen faster. On the same night the battle took place is admittedly way too fast, though.
Tenzin mentioned President Raiko “will be announcing plans to expand the city rather than rebuild downtown.” Highly doubtful he waited with that announcement for weeks or even just one.
If it had been weeks, Mako’s hand shouldn’t have been still in sling. Maybe.
Senna’s presence can be explained by her simply leaving the Pole early to Republic City, out of worry.

MV-27A Pegasus SpecificationsMV-27A Pegasus Specifications3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The MV-27A Pegasus is a land or carrier based low-observable, supersonic VTOL multirole assault transport designed for the USN and USMC. It is designed primarily for Special Forces insertion and extraction along with performing COD for both the carrier and other surface ships.
Pegasus while low-observable relies primarily on staying low and fast to avoid enemy detection. To achieve this, Pegasus uses variable bypass turbofans to optimize low altitude performance, along with having an extensive electronic warfare and countermeasures suite built in. For more dangerous missions, semi-conformal jamming pods can be carried.
To protect itself from airborne threats, Pegasus can carry up to 4 AIM-182 ALRAAM or SRAAM air-to-air missiles internally. A retractable 25mm GAU-12 Equalizer gun turret is mounted under the fuselage to clear any hostiles around a landing site. A rear ramp mounted M134 Minigun or GAU-19 GECAL 50 can also be installed.

F-14E Ultra Tomcat
The F-14E Ultra Tomcat is an evolution of the F-14D Super Tomcat and is designed to meet both future and current airborne threats. It incorporates many 5th gen fighter technologies such as 3 dimensional thrust vectoring, advanced fly-by-light controls, HMD, and many other technologies from both the F-22A Raptor and F-35A Lightning II programs. It also adds features from the F-14 ST21 and ASF-14 concepts like pallet mounted IRST and Nav/Attack radar, some reduced cross section measures like engine fan radar blockers, and a full glass cockpit.
In addition to those new technologies weight has been reduced through the use of modern composite materials to replace older composite structures and even some metal structures. Larger wing gloves also provide increased internal fuel storage, along with room for the optional canards, which are moved via MR actuators. The canards can help decrease take-off and landing distances, along with increasing agility at the cost

A-22A Raider (LOSA)
A-22A Raider or LOSA (Low Observable Strike Aircraft) is a stealthy land or carrier based attack aircraft. It is tail-less design powered by twin afterburning turbofans and a two-man crew. It is designed for both high and low altitude penetration of enemy air space to provide CAS, Wild Weasel, and rapid strike missions carrying a variety of air-to-surface munitions.
The basic design of the Raider allows for excellent maneuverability at all airspeeds, and provides excellent low speed handling, such as an approach to an aircraft carrier. It utilizes 2 dimensional (pitch axis) thrust vectoring nozzles and P&W F119-100 low-bypass turbofans like that of the F-22A Raptor.
The Raider also uses many other technologies developed for both the F-22A and F-35A such as the AN/APG-81 AESA radar, EOTS, HMD, and numerous other systems.

Dark Nova Technology FAQ
Q: What kind of engines are used in Dark Nova? What about FTL?
A: Engines break down into two types, main engines for sub-light speeds and jump engines for FTL. The most common type of main engine in the Terran sphere is the gravitic drive. This is a cutting-edge gravity-manipulation engine that is only theoretical today in the early 21st century. It serves three simultaneous purposes- allowing for phenomenal acceleration and maneuverability, creating an inertial-dampening field through the gravitic bubble it creates around the vessel (in other words, the ship may be accelerating at 1.25 AU per hour, but within the bubble velocity is unchanged, and thus the crew are not turned into a molecular smear on the rear bulkhead from acceleration G-forces), and it creates the AG fields that allow the vessel to float above the ground AND create artificial gravity inside. Gravitic technology was- in the history of the setting- one of the Big Three breakthr
