I like all of those models. I remember in my younger years, I used to study planes, and just as I was surpassing that phase, the Su 39 came out, it
was truely a magnificent plane.
Now then. What most Americans fail to see, is that while they are displaying all their "majoy works' (which they see as flawless on the global
scale) Russia has made many many designs, but they don't display them everywhere like idiots. I'll give you 2 models in particular.. Ka-52
hellicopter is old, but still beats anything American today. Since then, Russia has made 2 or 3 newer models. The Mi-18 hellicopter remains to be the
helicopter that can lift the most weight in the world, and that was made before the 90's.
Russia still has a rocket that can reach the US, and their anti rocket system has a 27% chance of knocking it down...
Russia has the t-80 which is much better than those Abrams... Not mentionning he t82, and any other models they may have come up with.
Russia has many many new models, yet the old ones (eg. my old personal favourite the Mig-29) can beat the F series up to 20... Not even mentionning
the new ones.
Russia has the fastest plane, fastest helicopter, plane which can lift the most weight, hilicopter which can lift the most weight, plane that can
carry the most weapons (last checked, the Su-35 or Su-25)
Russia has an enormous ammount of projects and finnished works..
We may not find out about them in thes life time.. They are not idiots, they don't parade them in video games...
Russia at the moment, is far ahead in millitary technology, and therefor, is the country keeping America at bay from the rest of the world.
