With other existing technologies such as satellite, drones and stealth air jet.
Would this drone still work?
Can this aircraft be detected and shot down by radar? It must have been very uncomfortable for the pilot to sit in a tight box for days.
You seem misunderstood “detection” and “interference”, no matter how far the great flight level reaches u2 it will of course be detected, another very different history is to stop it.
6:25 F-15C(shown)/D models do not have an oxygen generation system.
It uses a LOX bottle that converts it from a liquid to a breathable gas.
E models, on the other hand, have an oxygen generation system.
