Things I've learned recently from my pursuit that just blew me away:
1.) After all the years of black propaganda peddled by NATO, the so called "invisible" stealth planes happened to be susceptible to long-wave low energy radiation in the form of passive radar (correct me if I'm wrong). The F-117 stealth bomber being shot down over Serbia was hardly mentioned in U.S. media.
2.) While Americans landed on the moon (an impressive feat), the Soviets landed a moon rover (technologically-wise even more impressive) within the same time-frame, yet their has been a total blackout about the wonderful achievement in U.S. media.
3.) Russians produce the most advanced rocket engine technology in the world bar-none, NASA now almost exclusively outsource to the Russian Federation for Rocket Engines.
4.) DARPA and the Pentagon have been developing and airborne chemical laser since the early 2000's while the Soviets had airborne chemical lasers (Beriev A-60) since the early 80's!
...There has been a relentless campaign in Western media to unjustly label all Russians as barbaric sub-human savages who contribute nothing to the world, as well as labeling Serbians the same way (despite the fact that Nikola Tesla was Serbian). So far I've been lurking and decided to sign up because I liked what I saw. Thanks for having me, I hope I'm welcomed aboard!
