“geez...the 22 and 35 are in full operation and when was the last time a Russian plane was in combat?”

An actual Soviet Air Force plane? Or a soviet built plane?

I know Soviet pilots flew in both Korea and Vietnam, they’ve probably flown “off the record” in some of the African “brush wars” over the past 30 years.

As far as the planes, the last outing of a Soviet outfitted airforce (Iraq) didn’t fare too well with most of them tucking tail and running, or being buried in the desert.

Korea,Vietnam,Iraq. Everytime the U.S. Navy and Air Force face an enemy that enemy is usually flying Russian Aircraft.Either Migs or Sukois.

The Russian’s make great planes but its not the planes that matter.Its the Capability of the pilot.
