Well, they keep copying it because it is an outstanding desing... As for stealth, does this canopy surrounded by Serbian soldiers look familiar?
F 117 brought down by an inventive AA team armed with an "obsolete" 1960s Soviet AA missile (S-125). Just for information: Iran acquired a much more modern S-300 to counter the threat from very non stealth F-15s and F-16s from Israel.
As for Su versus the new stealth Fs... Well, we will just have to wait and see. Chances are we wont see them actualy fighting each other for real soon, but my bet would be on our eastern cousins.
Tho we do have an incident between Pakistani F-16s and Indian Mig 29s, in which the Migs owned the Fs. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by guitardude from Saturday, August 14, 2010 7:20:13 PM)
Strat, relax my friend of course I do not want to spill your guts anywhere, you are a formidable foe in this land. But you are wrong on two counts, the F-117 was gone before your Soviet counter parts could even roll out of their bunks and the SU is short for .....Sucks!! Hell they can`t even create their own original designs, They keep copying a plane that is almost out dated. Just wait until the F-22 and the F-35 actually see combat. the rules of engagement will change. (Quoting Message by _strat_ from Saturday, August 14, 2010 12:59:30 PM)
If you search this thread, you will find a user named Kmac, who is sort of the "king" of this thread. Its "Kmac the second" because there already was another thread like that in the newbie section, but we made another one here because the noobs kept spamming the old one, hence Kmac the second. I dont know why the first one was created (wasnt around in those ancient times), but in this one we sort of... "fight". All for fun, of course. Im actualy not an evil renegade king, and guitardude doesnt really want to spill my guts (actualy, Im not sure about the last one, but I hope its true). In any case, it IS a fact that Vail has a cow that farts fire and that Guido wears pink slippers when he thinks noone is watching.
Kmac himself is a member of this site, who hasnt been around for a while, and just occasionaly drops in every few months nowadays.
