New Russian Fighter SU 30

#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
Canards.

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
today.

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
situation.

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.

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.
