Nah I think it’ll fly. It will never be a production version and probably extremely dangerous(THAT WING AGAIN), but for propaganda purposes it probably will.

I mean, they’ve gone through all this trouble to make something that resembles a aircraft from the outside albeit with a puzzling choice of components.


#102

they could at least have the movie to last 3:13… :rolling_eyes:


#103

I think they took one of the internally produced F-5 from the assembly line and went full balsa-model-apocalypse on it…


#104

While we are all doubting the design, Boeing flew their Bird of Prey, with a similar (not identical!) wing design, top mounted intake and it wasn’t fly by wire (Like the Q313)

I get it but I’m curious as well lol


#105

I don’t think it will fly… You can’t even see through the warped canopy of that thing…


#106

I really want to see it fly though, imagine the sheer terror(of flying it)!


#107

I actually take back that it won’t fly…I do think it will fly in some capacity as a PR video. Sort of like how a Cri-Cri flies despite all appearances of not being able to. I don’t think it will be the one we saw in the initial videos though…the one in the hangar.

Not Russian…but…

Player 4 (5?) (6?) has entered the game…

The new Type 001A looks similar to the Liaoning but it has a larger hangar and increased deck space, meaning it can carry more J-15 fighter aircraft and helicopters than its predecessor. It is also outfitted with more advanced technology, though it retains the oil-fuelled steam turbine power plant and ski-jump style deck for launching its aircraft.

Not a video - but I like the moxie of this Su-25…


#110

There’s an awful lot of window panes in that canopy- a training airframe?


#111

To better see the fish underwater there…!

And you can see here an old Frogfoot male trying to prey unto unsuspecting swamp fishes…


#113

Frogfoots in the DCSish part of the globe.

Of note: I don’t know exactly what they’re shooting at, of all the things that screamed “target” in the video, I didn’t I see one of them actually get hit.


#114

Looks like DCS at 1:58???


#115

I’d guess FC1 based off the model.


#116

Well, I’ll be…

That WAS DCS! D:


#117

Footage from a few years ago with some cool air-to-ground action. Makes you wish we had a lot more smoke drifting over the DCS battlefield…


#118

Il2 BOS has some pretty amazing smoke pillars rising above Stalingrad


#119

This is kind of cool…
