knbber2: RTFA subby, it is a visual cloak, says nothing about radar. BTW, you don't need to see an aircraft to shoot it down, and there are multiple methods of identifying whether the aircraft is friend or foe.

ShawnDoc: Don't fire! That's an unscheduled passenger jet coming from the country we are at war with, what harm could it do?
calbert: headline hurt brain
b2theory: This is a terrible idea. This would provide next to zero advantage and it would encourage hostile nations to shoot down commercial aircraft (which has already happened way too often).I cannot express how dumb this is. Next up.... Army vehicles disguised as Red Cross trucks!
NowhereMon: OK, good luck with that guys.
0Icky0: calbert: headline hurt brainGoogle Translate from the Chinese original into Korean then into Tagalog and then into English.Try it in reverse. It all makes sense then.
MrEricSir: They've finally developed the technology to make 9/11 conspiracy theorists happy.
Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: Why not just make the plane appear to be about two wingspans to the left of where it really is? That way heat-seeking missiles just hit the empty air.
fisker: Why would China want to attack itself?What?
mr_a: I seem to recall reading of 1950's "light kits" for B-52 bombers that made them look like commercial airliners from a distance.No idea if that is true or not.

TV's Vinnie: During the war in Vietnam, B-52s used to pack tiny "Quail" drones that gave off an EM signature that looked like a flight of B-52s on Soviet tech radar systems. A clever way to freak out Charlie's early warning system and send MIGs & SAMS off on a wild goose chase.
vygramul: MaudlinMutantMollusk: I suppose this means we're going to need another carrier groupNope. It's not calculated that way.
Some Michigander: "Sir, we just picked up a flight of supersonic 707's. Should we raise the alarm?""No, everything seems to be in order."Conversations that will never happen....
I sound fat: hmm, China has new technology.
ib_thinkin: MrEricSir: They've finally developed the technology to make 9/11 conspiracy theorists happy.As soon as they developed time travel, it will all make made sense. You'll see remember?.
