News / Modern F-35 bought by Poland. Good decision? [246]

Drones are much cheaper and more practical.

Yes, if used against some third world country. Use of "global coverage" drones against country that already have means to destroy or damage comm/control satellites will be problematic.

This does not make F-35 purchase by Poland more reasonable, though. ;)

Memo to Poland: cancel that order

Impossible. Because this is not the regular order, but the way to pay pizzo to US.

Polish politicians probably forgot, that pizzo is sized to be affordable, but has to be paid regularily, it is not one time payment. ;) Next time it will be huge lot of spare parts for that F-35 (absolutely neccessary to protect Poland from Russia, and overpriced just like jets itself). Then hundred of new updated helmets, custom made for each pilot. And again... And once more... And...

There is good thing for Russian developers that F-35 will be regularily available in the air nearby, to test advanced realtime "destealthing" software updates for S-400. ;)

Maybe if Poland gets too annoying, it might get a new smolensk moment? Who knows

Smolensk moment was due to internal stupidity, not due to outside annoyance.

But stupidity can be very annoying as well, and cause much more problems that sudden career growth for a large number of politicians....

Poland ... poising a mortal threat to Russia.

Who said you that BS? Poland by itself does not pose any threat, because even while completely brainwashed, Poles still care about yourself, their children, and the land they plan to continue to live in future (just like Russians). Threat is NATO bases that is de-facto controlled from large distance by someone who does not care at all about both polish people and the land.

Let's name things by their own names. Trump said that it's time to "fari vagnari u pizzu", if you sell russophobia to the world, you have to pay their share to the masters who made this item sellable to a third parties and who offer their advertising support. United States have problems, and funding of Poland from EU is also coming to the end, so now it is time to pay something to "big boys", supporting their economy and taking away some of monetary losses, linked to F-35 program. Later it will be harder to find money to pay.

We all know the reality - some clunky 80s Sukhoi

Then why Polish politicians need such large loads of fresh diapers once they hear the word "Russia"?

Russophrenia - "a condition where the sufferer believes Russia is both about to collapse, and take over the world."

(including taking the huge damage that stealth Raptors are able to cause

... in your wet dreams and in a manufacturer advertising booklets. Maybe F-35 is little bit "stealth" to 1960's style soviet X-band radars that is used by African countries, but you have to be very lucky to sneak into russian airspace hoping to be invisible to all overlapping systems of different bands.

Can you tell me, why there was panic once Turkey tried to have S-400 and F-35 in the same hands?

News / Nuclear Power in Poland? Yes, please! Absolutely nobody disagrees! [70]

To what degree ?

Depends of reactor type. In any case, a lot of uranium still there, but cannot be used further safely after some point, set by reactor designers.

"Most" is the key word here

Most active - short lived ones who give huge activity and strong heating first months after unloading. It is why such rods stored in a pools with water near reactor for cooling. After short lived nuclides decay and heating decrease to a level that can be managed by transport containers, rods can be transported to a long storage near reprocessing factory, for years. After activity is decreased further due to decay, rods will be disassembled and remaining uranium and some other valuable elements (including some transmutated ones) extracted. The rest will be treated as active waste, dried and fused into glass blocks to be buried for millennias.

If memory serves me correctly, if you buy your rods from Russia, you have an option to get a "full lifecycle" contract. You receive fresh fuel, and rods is taken back after they depleted and sit for necessary period in a station fuel cooling pools to let most active nuclides decay so rods can be transported.
