  1. LM bought all the design work for the 141 off YAK, & if you allow for changes made to reduce radar signature, they're very similar looking aircraft.
  2. & from that was born the F-35...
  3. Have you never watched a drag race in your life ???
  4. They are - & are in game - you just have to find somewhere flat. Tried in the N of Syria - thought I'd found a straight road with no power-poles, but it turns out it's dirt with a road texture over it (See the dust kicking up) (Damn - just saw Ironhand has already posted. Oh well, made the track, posting anyway.)
  5. You can't use curves with E.D. FFB - the FFB doesn't get 'curved' so the stick position and FFB get out of synch & the trim stops working correctly. Always been that way since LOMAC
  6. Leaving aside all the other ways the West could have accessed details of the Su-25's performance and capabilities, the Iraqi air-force reintroduced Su-25 to its stable of aircraft in 2014 - So they've been flying while the US were operating from bases there. There is literally zero chance that every single piece of technology in those aircraft, and every set of test results anyone might want to do to evaluate the aircraft, has not been handed over for inspection to the US military
  7. I guess it will, as it should…
  8. Wiki If you're getting flickering at 60 Hz or below, turn your brightness up.
  9. This would get you 6 active Indonesian military airbases + all the civilian airports, & 9 bases that are either US bases run in Australia, joint US + Aus bases or Aus bases (4 military airbases and plenty of civilian airports). More than half water, Lot of desert or uninhabited space in Australia / jungle in Papua. Closest bases only separated by the Timor Sea. Indonesia currently or has in the past used a good selection of the fixed and rotary wing aircraft in DCS, as well at other military Eqp from both the West and East (Currently flying the Su-27, Su-30 & the F-16, AH-64, Mi-24, Bo 105 & Mi-8 [export version], sabre, etc.). Everyone else could conceivably be visiting Close enough to the China Sea to conceivably have some of those currently bumping heads in the region drift over or to imagine a circumstance where there may be an occupation in place or underway. Australia is a significant enough strategic ally of the US to expect the US & all other allies to move in, and the Australians to invite them.
  10. So what are you saying ? That they can't run an air force because they're Muslims and have to cover their heads ? How does that work for observant Jews in the Israeli air force ? Unfortunately, as far as I can see, religious beliefs (of any faith, creed or denomination) and intelligence seem to have very little correlation. Some very clever people think the earth was formed in 7 days, some very stupid people think there is nothing more important than themselves. I'm sure there are as many people in the Taliban (& their supporters) capable of maintaining and operating those aircraft as there are in any other country in similar circumstances. Which given the history of Afghanistan over the last 20 years and it's level of impoverishment, will be a small but non-zero number. The US has said it will have no boots on the ground, but that it will still be 'securing its interests' in the region from the air. I'd imagine that once we have everyone out of the country that we want out of the country, flying those aircraft - even for training purposes inside Afghanistan (or probably even standing by them on the tarmac) will become quite a dangerous pastime.
  11. Seems a little like hysteria to me. If they have the backing of some mysterious 3rd party Govt, you don't think it would be simpler to just use a fake passport to hire a plane in the country that you're targeting than to try to fly a military aircraft out of Afghanistan and to another country ? Or use a truck and an agricultural mister Or any number of other methods that are easier and less likely to be stopped ?

    Maybe he (?) is on to something ! if I weigh 90 kg, then every time I step each foot carries 90 kg. if I take 20,000 steps each foot has carried 900,000 kg 900,000 kg resting on my foot would instantly turn it into bloody pulp, so obviously it’s impossible for me to walk anywhere, and my designer is conning you all.

    Maybe like he said, the question part was deleted ?
