    Combat approved says nothing about the stuff they present. It's really a poor quality show. The first ones gave at least some technical data.

    Now they show videos mostly taken from youtube and repeat the same thing over and over again.

    They said like 30 times su-30 is manoevrable and can do loops. We don't really care. Talk about how they faced israeli f-15 or f-35. About their radar or weapons.

    I don't think its purpose is for sharing new information to enthusiasts like us... it is more a coffee book table magazine... just getting it out to the general public that after 30 years of seeing precision strikes from US and western aircraft since 1991 that there are some Russian planes that can do that too.

    The main ignorance they are fighting is lack of general knowledge in the west about Russian equipment... lets face it most westerners might be able to mention Scud missiles but most think they are Iraqi. Probably more westerners know about MiGs because it is simpler than Sukhoi, but they probably know about Tupolevs and Ilyusions as well... can't really expect an enormous amount more than that.

    I suspect these episodes are very careful about the information they release because the US and ISIS will both be looking for weak points and avenues of attack...

    This is a live war zone situation... so better safe than sorry...
