Dan sesungguhnya telah Kami berikan hikmat kepada Luqman, yaitu: "Bersyukurlah kepada Allah. Dan barangsiapa yang bersyukur (kepada Allah), maka sesungguhnya ia bersyukur untuk dirinya sendiri; dan barangsiapa yang tidak bersyukur, maka sesungguhnya Allah Maha Kaya lagi Maha Terpuji." (LUqman:12)

Russian fighter shows its sting

Feast your eyes in these detailed videos of the beast that is designed to match-and-crush 5th generation American combat jets. It's the Sukhoi PAK-FA, and it comes loaded with some amazing technology from the other side of the fallen wall.

Traditionally, the then-Soviet-now Russian fighter jets have been feared all over the world. Even their now theoretically outdated units—the MiG-29 Fulcrum and the Su-27 Flanker—are still among the most effective and destructive air combat units in the world. The Sukhoi PAK-FA is here to replace both, and it will take on the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II starting on 2013.

The new plane is derived from two research projects from the late 1980s: The inverted-wing Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut and the delta-wing Mikoyan Project 1.44. The PAK-FA is much more advanced, however, and it incorporates the latest avionics and weapons systems, and everything you could expect in a 5th generation fighter.

Mikoyan Project 1.44

The PAK-FA will have both stealth and supercruise abilities, which makes it capable of sustaining supersonic flight without afterburners. It also makes extensive use of composite surfaces to reduce its weight, and it has fully-movable vertical tails instead of conventional rudders. The maximum turning g-load is 11g, with a maximum speed of Mach 2.45 at 45,000 feet, and a 1,184-feet-per-second climbing rate.

Its onboard computer will use artificial intelligence to simplify the life of the pilot (no brain-to-flight-controls interface yet). Like the 5th generation American aircrafts, the Sukhois will network with each other, sharing information about positioning, weaponry, and targets in real time. What's more worrying, however, is that the PKA-FA will use an IRST optical/IR search and track system capable of detecting the heat trail of an F-22 from as far as 25 kilometers away. The F-22, by contrast, doesn't use this system.

All sorts of data and specifications of this jets can be find here and here.

Cool pictures during its 1st flight can also be find here.

PS: Yet, from many other site talk forums that talk about this jet fighter, I'm still have no clue about the available between Isr4el and India for this Russian a/c project. But what does the HAL talk about their available connection with this country for built the Su-30 MKI avionics system, just makes me think

"no doubt, Isr4el provides THEIR TECHNOLOGY for this nice built aircraft, specifically on its avionics system."

Vacation in Pulau Pangkor

Start from 7th June, we, batch4 have holiday ..juz for 1 week . Nothing much I can do. What I target myself to do is then become uncertain . The book that I bring along (when back to Ipoh-my parent house) almost never been touch …not to say I’m lazy but actually quite activities being spend during that holiday. More interestingly, my brother just back here a while before after getting their jobs in Mauritania for a long time. Now he’s at home and waiting for the conformation by his company to work in Kemaman, Ganu Kite~. Read More

Access panel& blind rivet riverting

Equipment used
Bucking bar, Various File, Prick Punch, Hammer, Center Punch, Hammer, Burring tools, Cleco, Countersink, Lead Pencil/Marker, Deburring tool, Aviation Snips, ScalePneumatic drill, Cleco pier, Aluminium Sheet, Rivet Gun, Combination Square, Dividers, Rivet sets, Rivet, Rivet Gauge, Scale

b. Given
1. Material 2024 T3 0.032” [a. Skin(5.5”x 6.0”) b. Doublers(4.5”x 5”) c. Access panel(3.5”x4”) d. Metal sheet Strip(5.5”x0.75”)], Anchor nuts and screws MS21059L3& NAS603-6P 4 sets ,Rivet MS20426AD3-3; 32 rivets, Edge Distance ¼”, Rivet Pitch ½”, Cherry Max ; 3sets(Universal CR3213-4-02&CountersunkCR3212-4-02 1/8” )

1st, the sheet metal layout is transferred (exactly the same in the figure above) with all the metals separated from each other. Something have to be sure is that rivet pitches and edge distances is follow the AC43.13 1B/2A/ a/c repair manual/SRM procedures.

After that skin is taken and cut to the required hole for the access.File and deburr the hole to size. The rivet positions is marked with the center punch , drill thru it and holes get deburred.
Doublers(4 ½ “ x 5”) be taken and cut to the required hole size. The doublers must be place at the back of the skin and drill it thru the holes of the doublers. As the drill is finished, use cleco. Cleco are used to hold both pieces together firmly.

Use anchor nut to mark the holes . How we do?-palace and secure it to the piece, that’s all….

Em, another piece of metal with the size of (3 ½ “ x 4”) are to be cut, file and trimmed. This then should be used for access door on the combined sheet metal.
Ok, now the the best part itself- coating the Alodine(use for preventing the corrosion). Clean it and dry it for half an hour.

By using the given machined screws, close the access door.
Now, the last part of sheet metal- the bottom metal sheet strip must be mark at the desired holes for the Cherry max installation. As you already see here, there are two types of Cherrymax rivets -3 countersunk and 4 universal heads) installed by using the pop rivet gun.
