    When you know they produced fighters, war ships ... and now they have issues with a rocket, that's sad. If your engineers have issues with physic laws then you can blame just your eduction programs ...


    Produced fighters that werent much of a fighters you know, and that had major issues of their own. And alot of it was licenced. J-22 isnt the shiniest apple in the basket. And you need to understand that Yugoslavia had 25,5 million citizens, and had about 350 companies that directly worked on defence programs. Today you have shrinking Serbia with barely 7 million citizens and no more than dozen companies with permanent defence programs. And those are still producing mostly items that were developed back then. Our major overhaul facility for fighters can overhaul 2 fighters a year, and it used to overhaul dozens.

    Physics is not the problem, they all know it very well, issues are of technical nature.

    What we do the best is to buy items from Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, France, Israel, Slovenia, Netherlands...and who not, then glue it all together and claim its our product Very Happy

    What we could possibly offer to Russia for them to be interested in? Very little really.

    On other hand we are, liked it or not, procuring and exporting materials used in defence indstry from and to, Ukraine. Company in my city is doing some precise tooling for Ukrainians.
