    I wonder if the king of the sky is S-500/400/350/BUK/TOR/Pantsir/Pine/Verba...

    Small trim... removed bits moved to talking bollocks thread in the general discussion section.

    So there we have the confirmation of what was discussed about the role of the plane as a work horse of the air force, in relation to "queen" Su-57 and "pawn" drones. A good example if you ask me
    Makes sense since the Su-25 are Rooks, wonder what the Bishops are...

    MiG-41 PAK DP.  Able to cross the entire battleground (board) in a single move Laughing   Yet to make an appearance, but when it does...  Very Happy

    Mig-31 with r-37 is already making all 4th generation fighters useless IMO. Mig-41 can be just a mig-31 but with a radar that sees stealthy aircraft at 300km away and it will be perfect.

    Flying twice as fast and with new missiles with multi mini missile payloads will be gravy...

    The King is not a strong figure in chess. The combined air defence system is more like the Tower, can strike across the whole board and keeps an eye on the King. Very Happy
