It falls in line with what this present government wants... a permanent loss of our military edge. With homos in the ranks and women in combat roles, along with weapons inferiority... they’re moving right along toward their goal.

Lol. Just check out the comments at the link. Summary: nice for air shows.

BS. I’d venture that an experience Eagle driver could take him.

Forget The F-22 And F-35, Russia's New Su-35 Fighter Jet Blows Them Away

0bama's "new flexibility" most likely included providing specs and probably technical assistance to his comrades in russia.

Won’t mean crap against a swarm of unmanned attack drones.

I have to allow that the moves it can pull in a tight hairball are extremely impressive, but is it STEALTHY?

Hmm....

If you can see it, you can kill it.

And I do love it’s looks —totally gorgeous.

Cute plane. But completely useless if it gets picked up on radar first and can’t fire.

I didn't go look at the comments, but someone else already posted what I thought: it's great for an airshow. But, the days of close-in aircraft dog-fights are long gone.

Today, aircraft are vulnerable long before they are in visual range. If you see an F-22, you would have already been dead if the pilot thought you were a threat.

Unless the Su-35 pilot can detect an incoming Sidewinder or AMRAAM and out-maneuver it, it's just an expensive showpiece.

Get back to me when it's not detectable by radar and can cruise at supersonic speed.

The Rooskies seemingly build aircraft crudely, but tough as nails (gravel or rough runways...). I wonder if this is in the same mold?

I see Cenciotti keeps exposing the fact that he is no expert.

Sorry, but aerial battles are not fought at less than 200 mph.

Very beautiful.

I remember the days when America was out in front and important. I remember when we were #1 in all things. Those days were before Michelle Obama became proud of our country, for the first time in her life. Those days were back when America actually had a Space program and we reached for the stars. Those were the days before homosexuals actually married each other and boy scouts weren’t faggots. Those were the days when we actually had a real president, one that loved our country and worked to bring us together. Those were they days when we actually had a Constitution.

So, should I learn to speak Spanish or Russian?

Can Ivan afford to fly these babies? He’s had some real difficulty getting his pilots flying time.

Of course the Zero has effectively grounded our Air Force too. That’s parity dumb everyone down.

The demo plane is sort of like a pretty model strutting the runway.

To be of any value, the model must also be able to be a great lover, have kids, clean the house, cook, hunt, and raise the kids to be wise and productive.

Speed, weapons capacity, sensors, stealth, maintainability, are all equally important for a fighter plane.

Notice also in the video that the demo plane is dumping tons of fuel into the engines in order to keep up thrust for all of the cute maneuvers.

If I wanted to go that slow, I’d also want to be in an A-10 Warthog... cause I want to go home too.

TT

While that Russkie pilot is doing his pretty, slo-mo pirouette, hanging there in mid-air, any one of our frontline fighters can blow him to kingdom come.......from many miles away!
