In war- would the Flanker-be enough to give superiority of the airspace to Russia and its allies if the answer is no then you have your answer. The Su disengaged and both aircraft landed safely at their bases. Oktober um Videos taken of low-flying Sus involved in the operation revealed they were armed with R and R air-to-air missiles.
The Russian stuff is good but not the best, usually a generation behind. It was previously referred to as the SuMF. The wing blends into the fuselage at the leading edge extensions and is essentially a cross between a swept wing and a cropped delta the delta wing with tips cropped for missile rails or ECM pods.
Avionics are almost same as found in 29 - which in turn was proven to be unrealiable Serbian and German experience and laser rangefinder was very dangerous Germans had it to be turned off to ground crew's eyes. Dezember um NO one has better records than us. April um 6: Has proven its reliability Govind am 7.
If you read some articles about air combat, it is easy to notice than in most cases Eritrean pilots just turned tail and escaped when meeting with enemy. Numbers, production, reliability, logistics all made the difference. Antworten Leos13 am Unless the plane really sucks. Looks like fiction to me just like the B-2 shot down in Serbia.
Antworten TriggerPuller am The Soviet leadership soon realized that the new American fighter would represent a serious technological advantage over existing Soviet fighters. What about the f15 Pov? The aircraft had a large wing, clipped, with two separate podded engines and a twin tail.
One Eagle was continuously losing speed, and altitude as it went, and was assessed as crashing some 30km inside Saudi Arabia.
These modified demonstrators led to specific prototypes for the Soviet Navy, designated "T10K" Korabyelny. With all this draggy non-reccessed missile load Flanker barely exceeds mach 1,05 at low level. The aim was to produce an airframe with dual roles for the Navy and Air Force suitable for a range of other missions such as reconnaissance, aerial refuelling, maritime strike and jamming.
The fighter is also an example of a tailed delta wing configuration, retaining conventional horizontal tailplanes. The aircraft was lost in an accident in August um August um 3: Even avionics is at the same level Geoff am The first T10K flew in August flown by the famous Soviet test pilot Viktor Pugachev who first demonstrated the cobra manoeuvre using an Su inperforming test take-offs from a land-based ski-jump carrier deck on the Black Sea coast at Saky in the Ukrainian SSR.
Yet, the MiGs were able to shoot down quite a few Phantoms. Thus it was decided to use a take-off method that did not require catapults by building up full thrust against a blast deflector until the aircraft sheared restraints holding it down to the deck.
Could not have said it better myself!
The naval trainer had a revised forward fuselage to accommodate a side-by-side cockpit seating arrangement with crew access via a ladder in the nose-wheel under carriage and enlarged canards, stabilisers, fins and rudders.F Eagles vs.
SU Flankers Aircrafts 2 Comparison of F Eagles vs. SU Flankers Aircrafts At the height of the cold war, both the United States and the Soviet Union have developed aircraft to aggressively engage one another in aerial combat to dominate the skies.
The Sukhoi Su (Russian: Сухой Су; NATO reporting name: Flanker) is a twin-engine supermaneuverable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. It was intended as a direct competitor for the large United States fourth-generation fighters such as the Grumman F Tomcat and F Eagle, with 3,kilometre (1, nmi) range, heavy aircraft.
Russia's F Killer: Why America (and the World) Fears the Su Flanker. It was the USSR’s best plane—and it still packs one heck of a punch. The unbeatable F Eagle and Su Flanker.
The Russian Su Flanker could easily compete with the United States Air Force F Eagle. Both, the F and the Su Flanker were designed as powerful air superiority fighters.
While the F Eagle is an older design, its advantages — particularly avionics — put the Su at a huge disadvantage. Russia has other planes in the Flanker family (the Su.
