  • F-16 and its radar AN / APG-68

    The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multi-purpose, compact aircraft with great maneuverability. It is designed for air battles and attacks on ground targets. It is a relatively inexpensive but very effective weapon of the United States and its allies.

  • F-16C - engine start

    In this dissertation, we will explain all the tasks performed when starting the engine and systems of the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Thanks to this manual, you will be able to start one of the best multi-purpose combat aircraft today. Before we begin, we must do one more thing. Raise your right hand and say: I will never take off F-16s without being asked. So I promise.

  • F-16C - engine start - checklist

    This article is closely related to article F-16C - Engine Startup, which explains in more detail the various actions, abbreviations and operations of the systems listed below. The mentioned article is maximally condensed here and should serve as a clear list of individual actions and their sequence.

  • F-16C - engine start during flight

    This article is a direct continuation of the F-16C - engine start-up, which explains in more detail the various actions, abbreviations and functions of the systems listed below, including a description of the location of the relevant controls and indicators.

  • F-16C Fighting Falcon shot down!

    Date: the second day of June 1995. Place: the sky over northern Bosnia. A pair of USAF F-16C aircraft perform a routine patrol flight as part of Operation Deny Flight. Check compliance with the no-fly zone…

  • Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II

    Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seater twin-engine aircraft, designed specifically for combat missions, designed to directly support ground units ( CAS - Close Air Support ), with a special purpose for the destruction of tanks and other armored vehicles, including hardened objects. The A-10 is nicknamed Warthog. Perhaps due to the raised riveting of the aircraft, perhaps for its overall "non-standard" beauty. The A-10 is sometimes described as the ugliest aircraft in the world. However, this is an unfair label. The Russian Mi-24 Hind combat helicopter clearly leads by two warts and a trunk in this category. However, the A-10 holds an honorable second place.

  • Hot seats

    Right at the beginning, I have to disappoint all dentists. Here you will not find information about your seats, in which your patients will experience many hot moments. From this article, you will not breathe the menthol breath of a conscious patient, but the smell of kerosene. It does not evoke memories of the roar of the treated, but of the hum of jet engines operating in the mode of additional combustion. There will be talk of ejection seats, a means of emergency leaving the aircraft by the crew.

  • One of many

    Excerpt from the short story Iverson's Pit by Dan Simmons

  • Ejection from F-16 in the Czech Republic I

    The CIAF 95 Aviation Day ( its 3rd year ) took place at the military airport in Hradec Králové on 13 and 14 May 1995. The day before its opening, on Friday 12 May, an extraordinary aviation event took place at the airport, during which the F-16A aircraft of the Belgian Air Force was destroyed. Fortunately, the incident did not cause any injuries.

  • Ejection from F-16 in the Czech Republic II

    Mr. Mirek responded to my e-mail with the article Ejection of an F-16 in the Czech Republic. He wrote that he was interested in the article, for two reasons. Firstly, because he was a direct witness to what he described, secondly to ( I quote ) a " relatively accurate description of the event ".

  • When

    Kipling wrote this poem for his son John. John was 12 at the time. At seventeen, he volunteered for the front. He fell a few weeks later. We can listen to the text of the poem, for example, on the album Calamity Jane 3 of the music group Taxmeni, who dedicated it to all our war veterans. Even we non-combatants can still take the poem as a guide for our lives.

  • Code letters on the vertical tail surfaces of US military aircraft

    Colleague Petr Müller took the careful work and collected the tail codes of American aircraft for individual squadrons and in the form of a table brings you this overview, including aircraft types, which will simplify the identification of aircraft in photographs from air days, etc.

  • A short talk about deceptive targets from the perspective of an F-16 pilot

    Everyone has heard of deceptive targets. We can even see infrared deceptive targets in action on one of the Army's air days with a little luck. An interview with the Phantom Luftwaffe pilot was a great inspiration for me to write this article. Sitting in the front seat of the beautiful legendary F-4, I asked about the deceptive targets and received briefly what I am presenting to you now.


    The LANTIRN navigation and shooting system significantly increases the combat effectiveness of aircraft. It allows them to operate very low above the ground, at night and in any weather, and attack ground targets with a wide range of guided and unguided munitions. The name LANTIRN originated from the initial letters of the words Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night, which describe its purpose. LANTIRN uses F-15E Strike Eagle, F-16C / D Fighting Falcon and F-14D Tomcat aircraft.

  • US aircraft carriers vs. Iraq

    The United States has withdrawn six aircraft carriers to disarm Iraq. I will try to show you what a huge force it is. I will focus on air force. Try to compare it with the planned 24 Gripen aircraft, which were to form the backbone of the Czech Air Force. (Where the F-18E / F has at least twice the combat value.)

  • Air ammunition

    Comprehensive overview of American air ammunition, "smart" and "stupid" bombs, submunitions, technical parameters, description, use.

  • Naval anti-missile system Mk. 15 Phalanx

    In the late 1960s, the US Navy began looking for a weapon to protect its ships from specially designed anti-ship missiles. They realized that standard medium- or long-range anti-aircraft missiles or classic small-caliber rapid-fire cannons were not capable of destroying such targets and thus fully ensuring the protection of vessels.

  • Bulletproof vests

    The use of vests was mainly due to the Air Force. It started using them during the First World War, there was a need to protect the crew, especially against ground fire. The armor of the aircraft was unthinkable due to the unacceptable weight gain ...

  • Operation Opera - IAF attack on iraqi nuclear reactor

    Iraq has been trying to acquire an atomic weapon since it was presented to the world. In 1956, with the support of the US government, the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission was established. As part of Iraq's peace cooperation, the Americans supplied nuclear research laboratories, the results of their research and also trained their nuclear scientists. However, this "brotherhood" did not last long.

  • Orientation overview of ejection seats

    An overview of the most used, western, ejection seats, together with an example of the type of aircraft on which it was used.

  • Patriot

    The American mobile missile anti-aircraft and anti-missile system Patriot was included in the armament in 1982.

  • Precision air anti-ground ammunition

    Brief description

  • Gatling principle and air rotary cannons

    Richard Jordan Gatling patented his invention in 1861. What was it about? No, it really wasn't a zipper ...

  • Speeches

    Two interesting speeches of commanders to their soldiers. The first - perhaps the most famous speech, from General Patton to his soldiers, the second from Henry V. in a quote from General Garrison.

  • Ground-to-air anti-aircraft missiles

    Brief description

  • SSBN - Ballistic Missile Submarines

    Missile submarines of the United States of America.
