@Tony Alegro the F-15 isnt stealth, and has by far the best combat record of any modern fighter, with over 100 kills to no losses. @DesertShadow Spoken like a true armchair general. Only a fool would underestimate America's military. Come to think of it, quite a few have, and paid dearly for it. Japan is one notable example. They curbstomped Russia BTW. If they can do it, there's no reason the US couldnt do the same if the unfortunate were to happen, and war broke out. As for the Berkut, the SU-47 as amazing of an aircraft as it is, was just a tech demonstrator with no weapons. Also, if stealth is "cowardly", I guess that makes Russians "cowards" too, considering how much effort they've put into fielding their own 5th Generation fighter in the form of the Pak-Fa /Su-57. War isn't a boxing match. No side is looking for a fair fight. Everyone wants to win as quuckly and decisively with as minimal loss of life to ones own side as possible. Thats the point. A little Sun Tzu might help you understand that.

1984-1992 The American X-29 became the first forward-swept-wing aircraft in the world to exceed Mach 1.

It demonstrated that a highly unstable aircraft with forward-swept wings could be flown safely at high G-loads using a digital flight-control system.

This is the very same aircraft that my mother flew in World War 3.

The movie "stealth", "airforce one" and other movie made by hollywood is a pure bullshit, because if they do not shut down russians, they do not get the support from USA force to do their fake movies, they have to be the cavalry, let them remember Vietnam, with less air power send USA air force to hell, i can imagine the VC with this piece a warmachine.

i want to buy that...

Thats a cool aircraft. The forward wing concept gives a better control with a small radius.


T.B., 27.10.2009 01:58

Sorry folks, you can stop jizzing your pants. It's been canceled!

Tony Alegro, (sounds like a name out of a bad mafia movie, and British Leyland made a crap car called the Allegro) says "If it ain't stealth, it ain't shit" Must be American to make comment like that. Americans like stealth, coz, like submarines, they can be cowards and hit without being seen. They don't make good soldiers, never will, and rely too much on the technology to keep themselves safe. This is a great aircraft, yes awesome, yes beautiful, and it will work in combat if it has to. Pity Americans cannot ever say decent things about non-American products. Lack of education I suppose.


kasi, e-mail, 09.09.2009 11:29

Xenostrike 06, e-mail, 24.07.2009 07:09
