  1. @Ghostraider As far as I can see, that only governs interception of civilian aircraft. One of the documents to the UN mentions some rules of engagement changed in 2012. Does anyone have those?
  2. I've heard in a video that in the MiG-15 you get about 6 applications. o.O
  3. Currently, the RPM gauge drops down to 0 when you turn off DC power. It should not. The RPM gauge (ИТЭ-2) does not need electric power other than it gets from its sensor. The instrument connects via two 3-pin connectors to a pair of pickups (ДТЭ-6) mounted on the engine, one for HPR and one for LPR. Back of ИТЭ-2 ДТЭ-6 I remember when this bug was corrected on Su-25T years ago. :)
  4. And actually, the preferred method is steady pressure, not pumping. I know that some new pilots chewed through the brakes in just a few flights by pumping them. (IRL)
  5. BMD-2 air-drop over Serbia GoPro from the vehicle! http://rt.com/news/204059-serbia-bmd2-vehicles-paradrop/
  6. A tragic event not far from where I live today. A brand new SkyLeader 600 crashed during an opening ceremony for a new private airport. The airport owner who flew it and one passenger were killed. The crash was captured on video that can be found here.
  7. No, the point of having radar guidance on R-3R is not the all-aspect ability. The (real) manual describes that it is to be used on propeller driven aircraft that have a much smaller IR signature and would be hard for the R-3S to lock on.
  8. No, only MiG-29 was used for air combat. MiG-21 was used for ground attacks. In a few instances, the 21s were armed with R-60x4, but never took off in such configuration.
  9. Side by side is great actually, if you can manage to have it.
  10. That video is a classic. I can recognize it just by listening to the first few seconds :)
  11. I just remembered this thread of mine. Eight years later, things are not so fun. :| 2glfvjH5MZ0 http://floodrelief.gov.rs/
