Dear Mr. Khan
is there any news that we are going the NG route may be in next block?
Also any improvement in the engine that could be seen on block iii and with which if so, would it maintain same ratio or will add a lb or more?
I normally don't get into these issues---my direction is more towards tactics & strategy and needs----. Is that right @Khafee @Mangus Ortus Novem
Increment of thrust to weight ratio would be by default as lighter material is used for the skin first of all.
It is a definitive that the BLK3 engine would have more thrust---.
I am not a big fan of " more thrust " per say---to me what is important is a shorter spool up time as compared to the enemy aircraft and quicker acceleration power when needed---and a reasonably long period of time between overhauls---.
