    You see that one cool move where it basically stops and tilts backwards? i believe that manoeuver is required of all russian fighters, the purpose being able to hit someone on your tail with a missile. Really cool stuff.

    Some of their test pilots are pretty skilled, but I'm not too sure about the bulk of their service pilots. Especially with the present state of the Russian military, I don't think they get a lot of flight time.

    My father in law is a retired Lt Col., USAF. He flew F-106s, F-15s, F-16s, F-5s, B-52s and the B-1. Every time he sees the video of the "Cobra" maneuver he chuckles and says "if that guy did that to me, I could wax him even in the 106." Apparently he didn't think that the Cobra as of any value during combat. [-(

    A sidewinder up the tailpipe might not be such a good selling feature though. :lol:

    #-o It could be worse! - You could collide with your wingman during a European airshow :arcade: , eject, have both aircraft plummet out of the sky into a huge fireball :blob6: , you parachute within feet of spectators, then light up a cig after the whole thing! :smoker:

    GOD - MARKETING GENIUS! :idea1:

    Think they just want to show how maneuvrable the aircraft is. And eh, what when ur outta sidewinders to put up his movable exhaust nozzle and u have to SHOOT him down. I dont think an american aircraft has a chance. Maybe with a skilled pilot?

    My father-in-law had 3,000 hours in fighters when he retired, graduated from test pilot and the USAF fighter tactics and weapons school. He also set over 80 world speed and altitude records with the B-1 (he still holds 6). Ya think he's skilled enough? ;)
