Besides, F-4 Phantom is really old The Capitalist version of the 'flying coffin'
May be I'm just biased Generally speaking, American weapons (especially aircraft) are better. Even though they are expensive.
But anyhow, Russians make good stuff. You know, even the Americans greatly feared the Mi-24 (perhaps still do ).
Flying coffin may meant for malfunction. What I was pointing was that it was flying at very high speed and low altitude and means in a difficult scenario to shoot that down.Besides, F-4 Phantom is really old The Capitalist version of the 'flying coffin'
Soviet surface to air missile system were always the best even better than west.I wasn't really comparing to the Arabs. The Viets did fine with the same weapons. So, it really depends on the end-user.
American weapons have better electronics which Russia is catching up or already caught up.May be I'm just biased Generally speaking, American weapons (especially aircraft) are better. Even though they are expensive.
Nothing can beat Apache..But anyhow, Russians make good stuff. You know, even the Americans greatly feared the Mi-24 (perhaps still do ).
Although I agree, it is hard to bring down an aircraft moving at very high speed and at low altitude with SAM.
Maybe it was flying s-l-o-w-l-y?
Can anyone tell me what is J-21?
Some sources are saying BAF is also considering J-21 as a contender for the modernization program that innitially will introduce 32 4+ generation fighter aircrafts in 2021. The other aircrafts under evaluation are Mig-29SMT, F-16, Su-30 and JAS-39 Gripen NG. In a second phase 32 more will be added in 2026.
I never heard of a fighter aircraft named J-21. Does anyone know about this?
BAF has finally decided not to buy any Mi-35 Super Hind
Why??? did they favour mi17 gunship over the mi35 ? Source please.
