This Is Why Military Spending Is Nessesary And Important

The following narrative is not mine but is important none the less as to the issue of our defense or lack thereof under this administration and the overall issue of our Defense Budget.

Russia now claims to have the #1 fighter plane in the world... SU-30- Vectored Thrust with Canards... As you watch this airplane, look at the canards moving along side of, and just below the canopy rail. The "canards" are the small wings forward of the main wings. The smoke and contrails provide a sense of the actual flight path, sometimes in reverse direction. This video is of an in-flight demonstration flown by the Russian's-30MK fighter aircraft.

You will not believe what you are about to see. The fighter can stall from high speed, stopping forward motion in seconds. (full stall). Then it demonstrates an ability to descend tail first without causing a compressor stall. It can also recover from a flat spin in less than a minute. These maneuver capabilities don't exist in any other aircraft in the world today. Take a look at the video with the sound up. This aircraft is of concern to U.S. and NATO planners. We don't know which nations will soon be flying the SU-30MK; hopefully China isn't one of them...



Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Note: Friends worked with advanced aircraft flight control systems and concepts for many years as an extension of stability control and means of control. Canards and vectored thrust were among many concepts examined to extend our fighter aircraft performance. Neither our current or next generation aircraft now poised for funding & production can in any way match the performance of this Russian aircraft.

NOW FLYING in any near combat situation.
 
Somehow the bankrupt Russian aircraft industry has out produced our complex politically tainted aerospace industry with this technology marvel.

Scratch any ideas of close in air-to-air combat with this aircraft in the future.

I hope we have something better hiding in the back 40 or we might be in trouble.

I do not believe our last one was like it but B. Hussein recently cancelled the F-22 Raptor by not funding it's production,once again showing just whose side he is on.

Hey Christopher,

As our country spins out of control with the leftist flight plan from Washington, we and Isreal have another fire storm to defend against.

I wish we could turn our government around as quickly as this weapon does.

Hey jaded,

I concur senator. With B. Hussein, Pelosi and Reid our ENEMIES (not 'adversaries') know that our defencea are down if not obliterated altogether and this is the time to strike and we are just now seeing the result of this.
