Except that the tricolour has been the Russian flag since 1888 and has rather more history than any aircraft markings. To go back to a flag makes sense. To go back to roundels that were on aircraft maybe 10 years at the most is silly.Since they went back to the pre revolution flag your point is, well pointless.
The Years under Stalin were certainly hard, but if they were still under the tsars nobody would have been into space by now, except possibly the germans.And if Czarist days were bad, how does Stalins rule bode for the Red Star?
[quote]I think your poetic "symbol of power and might" is going a bit far. If you look at some of the ex-Warsaw pact countries they had Incorporated the red star into their national insignia but either reverted to earlier or completely new insignia when the Pact dissolved.[/quote
That is because within the warsaw pact the red star represents the power and might of the Soviet Armed Forces.
Was going to say something about this but it looks like you have been suspended for infractions so I wont bother.And I think your a flaming ASCH.....Why dont you check a few of the posts before mine...Can't stand 2 minutes of history what an ASCH hole!
S-32 and Su-47 are the same aircraft. The Su-37 is a modified Su-35 with thrust vectoring engines that was a test aircraft. The S-32 or Su-47 was a technology demonstrator made by the Sukhoi design Bureau for what started out as the MFI project but is now the PAK-FA project. They won.what is the difference between su-37 & Su-37 BERKUT.
The Su-47 will not enter service but much of its technology will be used in the future Russian 5th gen fighter. The Su-37 will not likely enter service either but the Su-35BM will incorporate many features of the Su-37 and be used to upgrade the many Su-27s currently in service and new builds will likely be built to boost numbers. Early PAK-FAs will likely have similar systems to the Su-35BM but later get their full equipment and weapon fit.Su-37 BERKUT.is in service or not
Nice Su-47 pics - she certainly is a strange bird, but oooh so nice!
Question about he video:
Is the russian navy using this "torpedoe-missile"?
were the BTR's effective in the Chechnya wars.?anyone.
Mother russia won didnt she?? Looks like they were fairly effective. Great troop carriers, but a good many were lost via IED.were the BTR's effective in the Chechnya wars.?anyone.
A few more from my friend.
I sent him some tactical Goggles, and knee pads. He was testing them the other day.
He really liked the ESS goggles, but they were almost $100, so I can only get 1 pair in a while for them. But knee pads are a lot cheaper hehehe.
Just sent them more pairs ( THANKS TO OSWALD )
Nice pics Roman, those guys look bad arse. I'm glad they like the equiment.
Roman, could you ask your friends maybe someone knows how much demilitarized BTR or BRDM-2 costs?
