    Shiv, how do you know that the RFP does not ask for supercruise ability? I thought that the RFP was top secret. Or are you just speculating.

    anon: it doesn’t. i cross-checked. the RfP only specifies a minimum engine rating, and makes no reference to supercruise, nor lists it as one of the mandatory performance parameters. so no, this isn’t speculation

    How about AESA? Does the RFP also state that the aircraft should be equipped with AESA?

    anon: yes, the RfP does specify that the primary sensor of the aircraft should be an AESA radar. by most accounts, if the selection process takes place fairly, this will be one of the most contentious elements of the competition. also, it steeply favours the americans since none of the AESA radars being fielded by the other countries (Russia’s Phazotron Zhuk AE on the MiG-35 for instance) are proven.
