    Why are the pilots side-by-side placed(like in SU 32/34 24? ). In SU 33 doesn't the pilots sit in fornt-back combination ?

    thx

    Are you German and know this firsthand? Or at least do you know this from a German source? Because I have no doubt that Soviet naval infantry were great soldiers, but those 'black death' stories always looked for me like propaganda crap.

    AFAIK Su-33UB/KUB is a twin-seat trainer, so it might be intended to ease flight tutoring.

    Because Su-33KUB is combat trainer. Su-33 is one seater. Also, it isnt "SU-", it is Su-.

    As I posted in another thread, all "XY death" names are usually made up by propaganda.
    Soldiers, especially in WW2, are mostly 20 year olds and if they make up nicknames they tend to be insulting or at least derogatory.

    Also wasn't "black death" also supposed to be the nickname of the Il-2.
    So unless the naval troops spread their arms and made aeroplane noises while advancing I see no reason to confuse the two.

    There was a tread long ago, where our German members, couldn't confirm claims by "Our country (insert military branch) was called by "ze German soldiers" - (insert something cool and scary)" Heh, this trend make "ze German soldiers" - quite easily impressed bunch, 2-nd only to Japanese school girls, and they have to make do with measly "Kraut" and "Fritz" in return... what an unjust world.
