Old Soviet planes are the most beautiful, and sound like a jet should sound. That's real flying and not some computers with wings like western crap. Airbus and Boeing "pilots" don't even know how fly, they can only read checklists and press buttons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkExVUJ0ciIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gybeXt_M1dY

>>1684734Still the fastest
>>1684748STOPI can only get so erect
>at work>hear an absolutely THUNDEROUS drone in the sky, far louder than the planes usually taking off at the intl airport 30 miles away>cloud cover in the way of spotting>check Flightradar>it's an IL-76of course
No fighter will ever surpass Su-27's aesthetics.
>>1684734They are objectively heaps of shit compared to western commercial aircraft. Higher fuel burn, more complex analogue design, many still require the use of a flight engineer, and both Russian planes and the Russians that fly them have a pretty shit safety reputation.
>>1684886It and the Fulcrum are amazing looking
Posting best missile
>>1685731Aww... ohh... s-senpai
>>1684734>sound like a jet should soundWith horrifically inefficient low-bypass engines that run on whatever unrefined light oil you could find that week?
>>1684865Those weren't clouds, just the exhaust smoke.
>>1685731*shakes self apart*
>>1684886>>1685683I love how Soviet planes look like hawks and Mi-24 helis resembles giant wasps
>>1684915Rough men make rough planes, rough planes make rough men
>>1685770>run on whatever unrefined light oil you could find that weekThat's the point, they just prioritized versatility
>>1685995That’s a poor justification for bad engineering.
>>1684734>sound like a jet should sound>wahhh why are high bypass turbofans so silent they only sound like they're pushing lots of air!!!>all jets should sound like low bypass turbofans!!!Do you realize how retarded that sounded?
>>1684734>4Yeah.And Russian airlines are so dang safe too. The fuck outta here
>>1684886mmmmm luv some flanker necc
>>1685683 What does /n/ think of the new "Checkmate" jet? I'm admittedly too lazy to post a picture of it.
>>1687835jets cant play chessI didnt read much about it but I remember /k/ was arguing over whether or not what appears to be a DSI would work
>>1685731the tail looks burned by the engines
>>1688025I think it's either an unpainted section or additional heat shielding to prevent exactly that
>>1685715>tyoma we need plane faster than american plane>mihay get the biggest jet engine we have>its not fast enough>make a bigger engine then>now it melts the plane>make plane out of steel then>but now it's not fast enough>put two of those engines in it then>yes, that'll do, perfect
