I will look for those in the store, but our selection is not that great...
Grey Goose is pretty good also, but pricey...plus, it's from france.
Ever had Pravda?
the maximum speed of a F/A-22 is Mach 1.9, the maximum speed of a MiG-29 is Mach 2.3
they also shot down a B-2A over Bosnia

Just because Mig says it's better, doesn't mean it is! That is just good marketing
Just because LM says F/A-22 Raptor says it is so good it doesn't mean it really is. :p That is just bad marketing, because everyone knows MiG 1.44 is better, so they should say its name is F/A-22C and that this one is even with MiG 1.44 :p

they do, they have two
k, name a country other than the US that has bought the B-2, and the F/A-22 will be just too expensive for most air forces, a select few will be able to purchase them, and in very low quantities
sorry about, that, i would make a post, and then find new information about the topic, and then post it, then kepp on finding new info
No US F-15's have ever been shot down in A2A combat.
why do u want me to stop supporting russia, its not like u put up any better arguments, even though i'm 15, its not like i'm a stupid average american fat (lol jokes, had to say that, couldn't resisst, k, time to act mature)
why do u say aeronautics.ru is not a reputable site? huh give me reasons
u are talking about the MiG-31 M, i'm talking about the original aircraft, i did some additional research, and a few sites, claim 24, 400, and some claim 20, 000, but, in both cases higher than the F/A-22
well, those are pilots that YOU have talked to(which i still highly doubt)
sorry, my bad, i hear people talknig about bosnia, so it makes me think that i'm wrong, and i say bosnia instead, if u want to be specific, we should say kosovo
i know a tremendous amount of information in the geopolitical areas of the world, RIGHT NOW, but in 2001, i wasn't interested in anything, except sleeping( i got a 94 in geography, won the award, oh yea:roll
what do i need the points for anywyas?
The unbeaten mark is held by the USAF - not the F-15 in general.
You Russians are going to have to build a few operational Mig 1.44's before you can say they can beat a Raptor.
