New Russian Fighter SU 30

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone else seen this seems pretty awesome

    The red smoke coming from the wing tips is only there to demonstrate to
    spectators on the ground the direction the plane is actually moving
    through the air. Normally the smoke wouldn't be there. When the smoke is
    streaming behind, the airplane is moving fast forward etc. When the
    airplane is engulfed in smoke, it means the airplane is almost stopped in
    mid-air. The manoeuvrability of this plane is incredible. This plane would
    be nearly impossible to defeat in a dogfight.

    Russia now has #1 fighter plane in the world... SU-30-Vectored Thrust with

    As you watch this airplane, look at the canards moving along side of, and
    just below the canopy rail. The "canards" are the small wings forward of
    the main wings? The smoke and contrails provide a sense of the actual
    flight path, sometimes in reverse direction.

    This video is of an in-flight demonstration flown by the Russian's-30MK
    Fighter aircraft. You will not believe what you are about to see.

    The fighter can stall from high speed, stopping forward motion in seconds
    (full stall). Then it demonstrates an ability to descend tail first
    without causing a compressor stall.

    It can also recover from a flat spin in less than a minute. These
    manoeuvres capabilities don't exist in any other aircraft in the world

    We don't know which nations will soon be flying the SU-30MK, hopefully
    China and Israel won't be one of them.

    Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Note: Friends worked with advanced
    aircraft flight control systems and concepts for many years as an
    extension of stability control and means of Control...

    Canards and vectored thrust were among many concepts examined to extend
    our fighter aircraft performance. Neither our current or next generation
    aircraft now poised for funding & production can in any way match the
    performance of this Russian aircraft NOW FLYING in any near combat

    Somehow the bankrupt Russian aircraft industry has out produced our
    complex politically tainted aerospace industry with this technology
    marvel. Scratch any ideas of close in air-to-air combat with this aircraft
    in the future.

    Take a look at the video with the sound up. This aircraft is of concern to
    U.S and NATO planners. Maximize your screen for best viewing.

  2. Think I fcuked up the download can anyone open it???
  3. No. Doesn't work for me
  4. No you fcuked it up :p
  5. Err. The SU30 has been around for a decade. The Russ have a slack handful of them.

    The SU30 MKI is an export version that quite a few countries mainly in Asia have bought a few of. India licence-builds them (the variant was developed or them) and despite a few issues has more than a slack handful of them.

    That nice Mr Putin is currently getting Sukhoi to develop the PAK 50......which has stealth.

    Shame about the somewhat hysterical cut n paste.
  6. Ah well tried to upload using the RR browser but it kept failing it came as an attchment to an email any ideas how I can post it on RR even if its a bit of propaganda it was interesting.
  7. It's just a re-badged SU27!!!!

    Old shit!!! (Good old shit I admit!)
  8. No probs mate try this. Hopefully will work and gets rid of the "Bob&" hysteria....

    It has to fly that slow so the gunners can hit it Stan.
  10. The vid is 5 years old, good though.
