How Advanced is The F-35, Arriving in Montgomery Soon?



According to an article in the Military & Aerospace Electronics, amazingly so!

"Virtual capabilities of the helmet enables the pilot virtually to see through the bottom of the F-35's fuselage or directly at a target to experience extreme spatial orientation, superior weapons targeting, and tactical superiority during the day and at night. At the same time, the pilot has an uninterrupted display of flight information and sensor data.
The helmet offers bi-ocular, 30-by-40-degree field-of-view. For night missions, it projects directly onto the pilot's visor to eliminate the need for separate night-vision goggles aboard the combat jet.
The F-35 helmet-mounted display enables the pilot to target weapons by looking at and designating targets, and target verification when receiving steering cues from onboard sensors or via datalink."

The F35's are due in Montgomery in 2023.
