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.

No fighter will ever surpass Su-27's aesthetics.

They 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.

I love how Soviet planes look like hawks and Mi-24 helis resembles giant wasps

That's the point, they just prioritized versatility

That’s a poor justification for bad engineering.

>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?

What does /n/ think of the new "Checkmate" jet? I'm admittedly too lazy to post a picture of it.
>>
>>1687835
jets cant play chess

I didnt read much about it but I remember /k/ was arguing over whether or not what appears to be a DSI would work

I think it's either an unpainted section or additional heat shielding to prevent exactly that

>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

>put two of those engines in it then
>yes, that'll do, perfect
