Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII


Recommended Posts

Haven't seen tug concepts like that in a long while.  Nice to know that someone is looking forward like that.  
That is a pretty low price for Su-75, sounds like it is intended for the same market as the USAF F-35/F-16 replacement concept.
MiG is just barely holding on with those concepts.

Typical Russian selling tactic. Sell cheap then get them on the back end with overpriced spares and technical support for the planes built in flaws.

Not just them.  US Contractors are doing the same with "Service and Support Contracts."

So... Sukhoi is a Russian company, right?  Checkmate is a Russian aircraft...  this unveiling is in Russia...

So, why the heck is all of the market material in English.   I mean is one of the target customer the USAF?

Probably because they want to use it as an export, and English is still a primary international language.

I'm more upset at how quickly they're blazing through those numbers. Helloooo! We were just at 57, you really had to pass on sixteen other prototypes? :lol:

Seems the Russians have adopted the DoD's inconsistent numerical designations as well.

 

On unrelated note. The Typhoon is returning to the flight sim space.

Pretty sure I saw him fly an F-86 at an air show.  Would have loved to see him fly a Tomcat demo.  

This is a good video showing off some serious dis-similar formation skills:
