    And no word for the potential hundreds (perhaps even thousands including all versions of the F-35) cases of hypoxia in F-22A/35B's in the last 6 years alone.

    The western defense media has outdone itself. I assumed that some articles would come out about the first su 57 being officially delivered to the Russian air force. But their cowardice and butthurt can never be under estimated. They know this happened. But they chose just not to not report it at all.

    A new J-20 puff piece came out in the meantime though. And here is what it says

    https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/38655/ten-years-ago-today-chinas-j-20-stealth-fighter-first-flew-a-two-seater-could-be-next

    While the J-20 prototypes and early production batches were powered by Russian-supplied AL-31 turbofans, more recent J-20A aircraft use the indigenous WS-10.

    Really ? Has there been any official statement to this effect ?

    Today, Western sources estimate the number of J-20s built by the end of 2019 as around 50,

    Western sources estimate ? Unlike Russia, there is no official numbers on this from China. None. Zilch. Nada.

    Unconfirmed Chinese reports suggest that a production capacity of 48 aircraft annually, but there is no evidence that that figure has been attained

    Its 2021 now. So they are sorta kinda implying that there could be 80 to 100 of them now. All with the WS-10 engine. Rolling Eyes

    Equally importantly, the J-20 has been incrementally improved while production continued. In a paper released last October, the Royal United Services Institute, or RUSI, think tank claimed that “subsequent developments are likely to increase its LO [low-observable] characteristics and sensor capabilities.”

    Looks like the think tank racket is also in the business of hyping up the J-20. Even to the point where they are over estimating the whisper numbers that come out of China.

    A
    s for a two-seat version of the J-20, this would further set the aircraft apart from its closest counterparts, the American F-22 and F-35, and from the Russian Su-57 Felon, the latter of which is not yet in frontline service.

    "Frontline" service now. So they know that the first su 57 has been officially and verifiably delivered to the Russian airforce. But its not doing sorties in Syria so I guess they will pretend that its not in service until then. Pathetic.

    The achievements so far in China’s first stealth fighter program are impressive by any measure, but especially when one recalls that, when it first appeared, there was much Western skepticism that the J-20 was a credible design

    Yeah. Especially when you believe everything the Chinese say, which isn't much. And also go out of your way to over estimate give topspin to the little that is actually known about the jet. Its all just hype to bury the su 57. Because there is something about the su 57 that they really gets them flustered.

    Yeah, smoke does not come out of the F-22 engines because they work on different physics. Exceptional yanqui physics.

    https://aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/59227/why-western-fighters-afterburner-glow-is-reddish-orange-while-eastern-bloc-figh

    Someone noticing a difference and not getting any serious answers. Russian jet engines are more efficient and operate at higher
    temperatures. The blue flame is not some chemical bond feature as if Russian kerosene is not the same as western kerosene. It
    is directly related to the exhaust temperature. We are seeing full combustion colours in the blue hues. And all sorts of claims that
    the colour difference is due to geometry or injection is patent BS. Combustion is combustion.

    https://www.elgas.com.au/blog/1585-why-does-a-gas-flame-burn-blue-lpg-gas-natural-propane-methane

    Recall that the USA did not know about oxygen rich staged combustion in rocket engines until 1991 because it failed to develop the alloys
    needed to survive such a regime. The USSR did the impossible as far as the real ability of the USA was concerned. You can bet your
    last penny that Soviet and now Russian applied materials science is being leveraged to optimize combustion in military jet engines. The
    exhaust colour reflects this technological capacity. There is no BS smoke "issue".

    This would all be hilarious but for the fact that it deadly serious. Such retard fanboi thinking afflicts NATzO deciders who drink the
    same propaganda koolaid. This makes them extremely dangerous since they will start a war on Russia under the terminal delusion that
    they are guaranteed to win. Any such war will cost everyone dearly.

    I put "Checkmate fighter" into my podcast app just for the hell of it. A few came up. Clearly Rostecs promo strategy worked. These guys are just casual fanboys though. It's only the real defense analysts who have to be called out.


    Here's one episode descriptions

    So we saw all kinds of scary scary articles about Russia's new fighter called the Checkmate this week only it turns out its a paper shell that may never actually get MADE because Russia might not be able to afford to build it.  This kind of scheming makes me realize that Putin is secretly the Disney cartoon villain from Ducktales, Flintheart Glomgold.

    ---------------------

    Another one. Not as bad but ain't it funny that they can't ignore it. This clown actually plays the unveil in the background and mocks it like a jackass. https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82MGQyZWEwMC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw/episode/YzBlNzIxOTEtODgxNC00ZDc2LWIxNjAtZWM4Yjc1YTljZjg1?ep=14

    Since the late 1980s, the Sukhoi Bureau has designed the most advanced and combat capable aircraft in the Soviet Union and Russian Federation.  Aircraft like the SU-27, the SU-25, and the new SU-57 began to replace the venerable Migs that once populated the Russian fighter ranks.  But lately the Russians have seen their foreign sales sink to their foreign counterparts.  With aircraft like the Saab Gripen, the Dassault Rafale, and the Lockheed F-35 being bought up as fast they can be built, it was only a matter of time before the Russians tried to tap into the market of light fighters.  Their answer is this...the Checkmate.  Well if anyone is in danger of being outmaneuvered in the game of chess for fighter sales...I think Russia may be seriously in check!

    They did not figure that shit up.
    Too stupid for it.
    They have read it somewhere, in a mind-blowing, centralized effort.
    They just repeat it, like a horse "counting" to get more carrtots.

    Well, Russia isn't building it..they have nothing to do with the funding.

    Whether it gets made or not is no fault of the Russian Gov.

    So yes that's very stupid on his part to say.

    Western (social) media circles just act like everything outside of the U.S and E.U does not exist.

    trough my own social media Rheinmetall praised this gigantic remote unarmed and unarmoured toaster on tracks like it was the next leap in millitary drone technology.
    I mean, do not mind the Uran-Series right?.

    same for the NH-90 helicopter at the time. "the next flawless NATO ASW helicopter".
    Turned out during trails its engines could not handle sea-conditions and wore its engines out during the trails itself.

    "Israeli Spike/Gill, next thing in defeating russian armor in top-down attacks".
    They just failed to mention the damn missiles can not re-aquire their targets on the way down in an enviroment when the target is colder than the surrounding environment, or go after the wrong targets if they are hotter than their original target.
    We actually pulled the damn things from Afhanistan as we where afraid of hitting our own APC or Tanks that where in combat.
    We intened to use them to attack urban buildings in pin-point attacks but they are just useless.

    "JDAM's, turn your dumb bombs into smart weapons with these packages".
    And they are notoriously sensitive to solar interference with their GPS targeting data.
    They are more likely to miss their target than to hit.

    My only good experience was with the company Krauss-maffei, and in another case Raytheon.

    Krauss-Maffei: They dont boast and just want the weapon to work like it was designed.
    In Afghanistan, they send their designer's themselves as we where the first to use the PZH-2000 to fix what was causing failures (at first) to the automated firing system and the firing/ballistic computer. Bringing loads of replacement parts and they updated the software continously until the weapon was exactly as advertised. They are not afraid to admit mistakes either. They stand behind their products.

    Raytheon: Their bombs actually are safe to use and work as intended.
    they manufacture primarily the Paveway-series. Laser-guided bombs, they got their own diagnostic software too. When an pilot preps the bomb for engagement on the wing the bomb runs trough its own software pre-release check. If it encounters anything that hinders it from striking its target it reports back.

    An pilot has to over-ride the warning of the bomb to use it.
    If it confirms its pre-check, its guidance system hits it dead-on target. every time.


    But for the rest of Western Weapons?. over-promised and exceedingly expensive and not at all durable.
    An "next-gen" Stinger system mounted on Fennek vehicles was promoted as the next generation in anti-air warfare.

    I think we all know this was not "next gen", as short-range air defenses where since the cold war mounted on fast-light armoured vehicles.
    Except, .....this "next gen" vehicles need to first set up in an BMS (Battlefield Management Network) to be able to acuire and air target and fire.
    It has to stop, set up an strong stationary antenna to receive and transmit data on an network...

    Congratulations NATO, how to turn an stand-alone short-range AA weapon of the cold war in an useless piece of hardware.

    Its not like NATO personell are all retarded, there are often crew that point to russian equipment and point out the weakness from their position.
    Arms manufacturers and Western Millitary's often write these opinions off as these soldiers are too pessimistic, lost their will to fight or be victims to russian propaganda.

    yours truly here included Razz.

    I think when i say here i have to explain to an NATO intell officer what an old ZSU-23-4 that was on the loose between KAF and TK is capable off says enough.
    They assumed it could only attack C-130's that where fully loaded at close range that took-off from KAF. As their slow speed was the only oppertunity to attack. that it was not an threat to us as ground forces.
    He was clueless as i explained it was able to depress its cannons low enough to engage our convoy if it was able to set up in an optimal firing position as we pressed our convoy to TK through their lines. It would out-gun and outrange us as the heaviest we had was .50 call. And as we brought munitions and fuel, and we had plenty of logistical soft-targets they just might try it. There was nowhere for us to go once this system opened up on us untill its munitions ran dry.

    You really would think these people's jobs would be total-weapon freaks and learn everything to know there is about these weapons.
    Fucking google-generation of idiots. nobody has passion anymore in their jobs in intelligence.

    I consider myself an proffesional, and i know there are others out there in NATO too. but we are an very small minority.

    Mostly we become Pariah's by Western media and governments because we voice our objections to the path chosen by millitary's and politicians.
    We find an weapon unsuitable, we discover the deal has already been done by politicians.
    Us testing it is just window-dressing to confirm it. Our opinion does not matter.

    We find lowering recruitment demands is unnaceptable. that it will affect our combat effectiveness.
    Government pushed the inclusive agenda and tells us to shut up.
    Advertising over the social media our army is stronger because of "DIVERSITY!!!!".

    We, the ones that actually read history books, visit our predecessors memorials and serve with an actual spine and with respect to the job tried to explain it.
    As an Millitary, you have to adhere to an image. social standards as expected by any millitary.
    Putting scrawny girls in front-line service is asking for trouble. So is putting an transgender in Command of an German infantry squad that does not share these woke-values. and send them to meet an Serbian elite combat unit for exercises.

    Are you out of your freaking mind!?!. You know how absolutely humiliating this is to the German Troops?.

    But sure, lets put the whole german airborne unit under the train because they dared to spray Erwin Rommel's Afrika Corps Emblem on their vehicles in Afghanistan.
    And just ignore they where the best combat troops you had out there that did not know the word "retreat".
    They where "toxic" according to politicians.
    Talk about not honoring your country's warriors.

    Western Media?. They are pure propaganda tools of their governments. Nothing they say is the truth.
    And sadly there are loads and loads of Western NATO-fanboys living in basements that like to regurgitate the propaganda without having any first hand experience or knowledge themselves on the matter.

    Apart from the general AESA fetishism and vapid assumptions, In the 2nd video he say something  especially dumb with the claim that the Su-30 is terrible because its an 80s aircraft, but he doesnt compare it to 80s NATO aircraft.

    ^ Yeah **** Binkov and his BS. He got his followers by bashing Russia while sounding Russian. All these Americans were like ooohhh yeah. Follow.

    He didn't totally say that its a mockup but his commenting retards believe that's what they heard anyway.

    The top rated comment is "Russia started a gofundme for a fighter"

     Except they didn't. But nobody cares about reality. Just whatever comforts their delusions. Let's see what the retards say after it flies I guess

    To be fair, I often find him wrong and ignorant on things but he is a mere armchair expert much like everyone on this site. Your are all armchair experts and are no more wrong or right than others such as him.

    That said he has always said the SU-30 is comparable to 80's figthers

    But the US is putting the F-15 back into production and that was not an 80s aircraft...

    Maybe Russia should respond by bringing the MiG-25 back into production... it was so important the US copied its design to create the F-15, so it must be even better I guess.
