Skip to comments.With the T-50, Russian Jet Fighters Are Back ... And It's None Too Soon

Ah, I'm so relieved that things are getting back to normal. I spent my formative years enraptured with the thrill of drop drills ('duck and cover;' remember that?) strategic missile gaps, the space race, submarine cat-and-mouse, missiles in Cuba, and other delights of the Cold War.

So is it stealthy or not?
This guy’s an idiot. The T-50 is a material concern, not something to be flip about.
You'll have to forgive the writer...somebody wrote "DORK" all over his picture...
"This machine will be superior to our main competitor, the F-22, in terms of maneuverability, weaponry, and range,"
Probably not, due to the omission. But would expect that depends on the radar sensors that were tracking the plane. When it comes to ECM and SigIntel, we beat Ivan on all fronts. From what I have seen of the F-22, I doubt Ivan has anything to touch it on maneuverability or weaponry.
His pic and this statement:
“Sounds like we’re all back in the saddle again ... right where we belong.”
Need I say more.
Until a few minutes ago, I didn’t realize that growing a mustache could turn into a catastrophe.
bu...bu...bu...but didn’t all of those tie-dye wearing military tacticians on the left say that fighter plane development was a waste of time? That’s right - we need to be directing our resources to further the expansion of the entitlement society, so our eventual conquerors already have the framework in place for our enslavement.
I think that the whole Russian mindset of “mine is bigger than yours” to be quite ridiculous. My thinking is this, if their military equipment was really that much better, who they be telling anyone, especially us, about it? I don’t think so.
That should say, “why would they be telling anyone”. I don’t normally speak ebonics. :)
Clinton probably sold the F-22 specs for a campaign contribution.
At least ours is stealth, and its real.
Dork is not the word for him. I think Scolnick needs his nerd outfit back.. EEEEEEEEEEEEH! EEHH!
If he didn't then Obama certainly did.
More Raptor food. Our F15’s are still better.
Stealthy?? NO. not with those bigger than life intakes!
There is more going on with Russian intake design than you seem to be aware of.
While your reaction is natural, you would find it wrong indeed, if you would do some research into an alternative approach minimizing radar reflection from engine intakes that has been pioneered by the Russians. In fact there may be elements in there that could be copied by US eventually.
