Quote from: Uncle Duke on November 15, 2016, 07:48:07 PMYes, although they do use a "ski jump" ramp similar to that used for SHARs by the Brits on their "Invincible Class" light carriers.

Quote from: theONE on November 15, 2016, 08:00:15 PMNo need for it --- I'm quite well informed on that topic.To me military actions by Russian Army in Syria are the best examples of real life politicking...not this bullshit that is spewing like a river of stinking sewer from the W-H and Bama

Quote from: Yorkshire pud on November 15, 2016, 08:06:32 PMThe AIRFORCE and NAVAL aircraft are doing well over Syria because there's no opposition. It isn't brave carpet bombing civilians who can't fire back.

Gee, I wonder why? What might have changed then? Uncle, what's this stain on your pantsleg?
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on November 15, 2016, 07:56:57 PMDifference being, the Harriers have a Pegasus engine (that has 'fuck off' stencilled on the compressor ring) with the accompanying vectored thrust.
Quote from: norland2424 on November 15, 2016, 07:58:23 PMyea i see more " accidents " happening in the near future, you would think they would at least try to emulate American and British carrier ops

The agency also spoke to a man whose eight relatives died in the attack.Yousuf Mohammed Yousuf showed Ruptly the graves of his brotherâ€™s family, including the manâ€™s pregnant wife, their children and grandchildren, in Fadhiliya village near Mosul.â€œThe owner of this house was called Amer Mohammed Yousuf, my brother. His family was eight persons. On October 22, 2016, between 7:30 and 8:00 am, aircraft attacked this area and destroyed this house," Yousuf said. Kurdish troops fighting in the area as well as local officials have also said the house was destroyed in an airstrike.Nobody survived as the family home was hit twice during an airstrike, which Yousuf blames on the US-led coalition.He also showed the ruins that was the home of the deceased family."I think they are the NATO, but [I am] not quite sure whether they were French, Canadian or US. I only know that they hit this area and destroyed everything," he said.**...very sad story, and shame on the coalition air force --I hope there will be international outrage and investigation to find outwho did it /at least this time they can not blame on Russia/ "Iraq: Brother mourns as deadly US airstrike kills 8 family members"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnbZ_tQdfBA

Fallujah residents still suffer from the consequences today, with many accusing Washington of using deadly depleted uranium weapons.According to some reports, chemical weapons may have been used during the battle, also known as Operation Al Fajr and Operation Phantom Fury, which is considered the bloodiest of the Iraq War.A number of scientists have linked an increased rate of health problems in the Fallujah population to the US-led attacks, including birth defects and cancer.Which specific substances may have been used is still unknown. Only the use of white phosphorus has been officially confirmed by the US.Although over a decade has passed, Fallujah residents are still suffering from the consequences of the battle."*...ugly -very ugly !!!America from now on have no moral ground to school others /especially Russia/ about being nice guysAmerican Army wrote book how to be below worst of the worst when comes to humanitarian behaviour during war-fucking disgusting assholes pointing fingers at others...watch the videos there if you have any reservations
Quote from: Walks_At_Night Â¯\_(ツ)_/Â¯ on November 15, 2016, 07:59:52 PMHa! Poor Ivan. It's not easy but certainly doable. The Italian Navy is often under estimated and operate two carriersquite competently. Russia has some work to do!
Quote from: Uncle Duke on November 15, 2016, 08:08:57 PMYes, meaning it was better suited to a ramp than a navalized MiG or SU. The Russians did have a crude STOVL fighter back in the 70s (Yak 38?) and an advanced STOVL fighter on the drawing board.Hey Pud, would you like to explain to Jackstar who Duncan Sandys was and what his Defense White Paper had to say about fixed wing warplanes?
Quote from: Value Of Pi on November 15, 2016, 08:09:24 PMTough to do when they don't have and can't afford the ships and planes they would need. I don't think they even have an operational jump jet. And it's a fairly short deck for conventional landings, so with their relative shortage of training flights, more accidents are not unlikely.
