Russia’s Sukhoi has rocked the 50th Paris Air Show at Le Bourget with the premiere of its cutting-edge Su-35 fighter. Super-maneuverable even for a Sukhoi, the Su-35 has been dubbed the “UFO” for its outstanding maneuverability.

According to statements given by some American top military officials and experts amongst them designer of F-16 and some other foreign experts such as Canadian, Australian and British both F-22 Raptor and JSF F-35 are absolute rubbish. F-22 was somehow better than F-35 which was declared as a flying bucket. Reason being is that F-35 is too bulky, underpowered and manoeuvrable as kinetic projectile. That is due to it bulkiness and small wings marred with weak engines. On the tests this aircraft was unable to exceed speed of sound, never mind fly 2+ Mach. In this point in time Russia is the most advanced power.

Whith the possibility of the whole F35 Joint Strike Figther Lightening, cancelled, after The US/Gov.Pentagon/Nort hrop-Grumman-Lockhee d Martin's Chinese (unfortune cookies, aka. Microchips counterfeits), notto forget that a Brittish company also sold cheap ripoff's microshipsto the US dept. of Defence! But it sure makes one wonder, Who took the (savings?) From those gigantic defence budget, they allredy have! But all in all that project have failed from the start! By Russian Planes! Just look at their performances and the slim lines, they are marvels, and Vertical takeoff, how did the SU 37 do that?

With such formidable jet fighters, not to mention other hardware such as stealth, heavy bomber jets, and advanced missiles, torpedoes, submarines, and radars, Russia's military will catapult to the top soon, overtaking the US qualitatively. That China is even seeking to buy the Sukho-35 speaks volumes of Russia's scientific research and development prowess. I tip my hat to you, Mr Putin.

f-35 its poorly armored has bad flight ability and because of the central fan and weight of that fan and the basic airframe design for the navy / air force and army is the same therefore the limited weapons it can carry because the centre cargo bomb bay has a big vertical thrust fan in it for the navy version and they all carry the same airframe.. the main fault is weight.

I love the pro american sabre rattling... you forget that russian ICBMs were and still are about 20 years ahead of american.. Don't kid yourselves. the f35 is a joke in comparison.. it might have the range with AIM but its a over rated slow piece of junk that even a f14 could shoot down.

Plasma stealth doesn`t exist!!!!

AIM-54 is obsolete, AIM-120C and D have far better characteristics

SLEP, update re-engine F14 & new AIM54 fill gap until F35 hits fleet. Cheaper than new FA-18E/F

Thrust vectoring?
Typhoon doesn't have any, still it would outmaneuver most of the planes that have it.
I wasn't talking about AIM-54, I was talking about AIM-120D, which has 50% longer range than AIM-120C (which has a range close to 60 nm). Phoenix missiles are long off service btw.
And forget about lasers and plasma stealth stuff, nobody will invest in research right now

Weep JSF-35, weep, that is if the JSF-35 ever works properly!!! Russia rules!

Phalanx CIWS should also add laser to each CIWS unit w/finned, guided bullets! Lock-on,kill incoming

Anonymous user 19.06.2013 06:43

SuperManuverability defeatable by finned, laser-guided bullets in Vulcan cannon. Auto laser lock-on
