Don't know why people post such stupid shit.
But usually these YouTube channels are garbage, so are the people who post them. And the people who liked it.
So much disinformation spread on this site.
If it had been posted without comment as a useful and relevant piece of information then I would whole heartedly agree with you, but because it is rubbish but refuted by the person who posted it, it stops becoming information about the subject and more about the avenues of propaganda the west likes to use to denigrate the Russians.
Suggesting the Ukraine is an integral part of Russia is interesting... almost like they realise what a dog they have paid for and want Russia to take them back and that somehow the Americans/Ukrainians would be doing Russia a favour by letting Russia spend billions of dollars and the next 20 years fixing what is broken...
The fact that it was not perfect and that this means somehow that makes the Russians incompetent is also amusing... anyone who has any experience developing someone knows you don't go from paper design to serial production and that prototypes are a necessary step towards serial production... perhaps this is arrogant US influence because a lot of their programmes seem to have stumbled.... 16 LCS built, three Zumwalts of 32 odd expected, and over 500 F-35s made before the basic design is really signed off as working and bug free.... ridiculous.
Finding a patsy to say the new Il-76 models are terrible... 62 ton payload compared with the first Il-76 which carried about a 40 ton payload over shorter distances... sounds like a 50% increase in payload... that is outstanding... and being able to use the same basic planform and new wings and materials is really outstanding... I don't need to talk about how internationally successful the Il-76 design was... I wont even mention the US equivalent... the C-141, or the current example the C-17 which is more expensive to buy and operate than an An-124.
And then we have the aggression accusations from a country shelling its own regions and killing its own people... why should Russia approve such behaviour?
All the news we have say the weight problem has been solved and the engines had fixes applied to them.
Well they said they needed 2 tons of ballast for the prototype to fly, which sounds more like a balance problem.
The fact that they solved it with weight reduction is a good thing because reducing weight is always a good thing as long as safety is not sacrificed.
Russia can do every single component in an airplane unlike Ukraine or China and they can fund these developments now that the state has sorted out its own internal finances and has had a stable financial outlook for well over a decade.
Exactly, they have the ability to create new aircraft, they have the funding to do so, and over the next decade there are lots of transport planes they currently use that will need to be replaced, but also around the world quite a few of those planes will also need replacement too so there is an international market there as well.
About a year or so before the Syrian campaign some defense expert journo wrote that the Russian Air Force had virtually no smart weapons capability, and it was widely published as well. Business Insider comes to mind but it was published in several online aviation news outlets as well.
I would add another factor though, that Russia is happy to use a simple solution to a problem as long as it gets the job done.
That means avionics upgrades like the Gefest & T upgrade can allow dumb cheap iron bombs be used safely from altitude and still get the job done.
Of course the western media will complain but who cares... if you listen to those morons the Russians are targeting hospitals and schools and churches anyway...
It is clear the video was posted for
the visuals and not the Russian language narration.
I thought that too.
Plus it is entertaining to see how weak their propaganda really is... they have nothing...
It makes you wonder how many of the key R&D team members of Ukrainian firms like Antonov are now quietly working away in a corner of a facility in Russia.
Or cleaning toilets and driving taxis in Poland...
Highly skilled people on average have a better grasp of reality than low IQ hordes.
They are also unlikely to be satisfied with minimum wage alternative jobs their new overlords in Poland expect them to start with... let them work their way up...
