Now i'm just curious. Has LN said anything about an agreement with Grunman, so they can model it as accurately as possible?

Oh my god, yes! Haven't been looking much at the Forum lately, but now I see this! Can't wait!
I must say I'd have preferred the D version, but A or B is also fine. At least there will finally be a Tomcat to fly!

I'm not familiar with how they came to the move in the movie production, but it would be interesting if it was actually referring to the <90 degree Cobra the F-14 did in tests.

The so called "Cobra" flown by any aircraft is a formula for instant death. It is a great show exhibit, but with another aircraft on your tail that is close enough to overshoot - you are already dead!

^^that's right

another thing about the "cobra" --- the SU doesn't NEED this maneuver - its already got such a substantial performance advantage that it makes this stunt even more of a joke to consider it seriously as a viable tactic

if SU fanboys knew how to fly their platform properly, they wouldn't focus so much on gee-charlie-whiz-bang hocus-pocus buck-rodgers magic wand silver bullet maneuvers to save their bacon

they'd just go out and kill bandits

It means 2 things:

1. The 27 is such a good plane all across the envelope, you don't really need to resort to post stall maneuvers to win. If you fly it well that is.

2. Cobra and other similar post stall maneuvers seam to have acquired the attributes of a "magic wand" in the wide internet culture..... a sort of "cure all disease" pill. And that is besides the fact that flying anywhere near the part of the envelope where you can perform it, is a best bet of getting yourself killed (unless in a WW1 environment or against extremely inexperienced/inapt enemy).
