Cant wait for it to be pitted against f22,that would be a true dogfight without BVR.

I'm almost certain that they'll be on the same team as the F-22s so it's unlikely they'll be dogfighting.
If the Su-30 dominates the Aggressors, which I'm sure it will, I wonder if the USAF will try and use it as justification for more F-22s?

Where is thier external tanks, I know they can't fly from India to U.S.A. with just internal fuel.

Who Strategic assets


Nellis AFB OrBat/Sched for Red Flag Jul-Aug 08:

Su-30s playing a ground attack role only :| I assume this has much to do with the radar security restrictions.
The Korean F-15Ks and the Rafales will be good to track as well.

They might have made it another 5,000 miles if they had retracted the air brakes

i hope they do... the limited of number of F-22 that will be produced is incredibly disturbing... especially when the air force brass are asking for more.
