    For Russian aircraft and ships however it is evidence they don't know what they are doing... even more ironic is that the RD-33 is a very solid engine that can cope with regular airflow changes including reverse airflows in tail slides and other high angle manouvers... but all that is mentioned is that they put out a little smoke in max dry thrust...


    Actually the latest version of that engine the RD-33MK, the one that is on the Mig29K, mig35 and possibly in the newly built Mig29M/M2, in addition to having longer service life, higher thrust and being digitally controlled, should also have solved the black smoke problem of the earlier mig29

    Agree... but my comments are directed at trolls that think smoky engines mean anything at all.

    When it comes to performance making the engines not smoke any more would be pretty low on my list and I suspect on theirs too.

    Some USN ships also smoked heavily, but still beat the IJN:

    Even if Adm K. will continue to smoke, if if it's not taken out of action by the Covid-19/20/21 like the CVN-71 was, it won't make much of difference for its potential enemy.

    Just for smiles, a pair of Luftwaffe F-4F Laughing Reminds me of a destroyer laying a smoke screen.
