well, maybe Gripen wasn't such bad choice in the end... (at least it can land even on meadow)

Sounds good! 8llaniflip.gif
And the Gripen, IIRC can land even on a clear highway.

well, every small plane and every modern supersonic fighter can land on clear highway I8.gif

Especially when I consider that Warsaw Pact used Highway in the 1968 in the invasion to Czechoslovakia (which itself failed, but neostalinists has betrayed the rest),
there shouldn't be no problem in that (unless concrete panels are damaged).

Only VTOL and few other fighters like Gripen can land on slightly flat meadow.

On the aussie uniforms. i dont see its as a threat. i think if any thing. it brings the two nations military closer. the only threat i see. is if we went to war with China (what i HIGHLY dout will ever happen.) and our soldiers become nude soldiers! 0.o rofl

PAK-FA's cost makes it more accessible to foreign customers -- it would be the plane's quality that would matter.

Why the hell would anyone attack ausfailia anyway? Most likely no strategic value or resources there (except water and animals that can kill you). 8Isov.gif

i dont know why any one would attack us (aussie land) maybe WMD clams or building a bigger empire. but as for resources. its one of our most biggest exports (mostly to China, India and Japan)

animals that can kill you.... (thinking of that simpsons EP) ill just pull out my spoon and kill them all MUHAHAHAAH

Some Pak-Fa photos

I found some new interesting pictures on one Czech portal, one of these pictures shows radar for Pak-Fa, another compares Pak-Fa and Su-35(?):

http://www.palba.cz/forumfoto/displayimage.php?pos=-17382
http://www.palba.cz/forumfoto/displayimage.php?pos=-17261

and there is whole article written in English about this plane (with some mostly smaller pictures):
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=255&...-FA-Sukhoi-T-50

(there are currently 3 planes, at least one of them has camo)

nice find. but apart from the PC pic's i think they are fake pic's. EG: http://www.palba.cz/forumfoto/displayimage...&fullsize=1
look at the shadows... some shadows are long (late day or early morning) and others are short.
look at the wind on the flag and these no snow blowing that hard or the ppl that are not reacting to the wind that is blowing that hard
Look at the tree. if the wind is blowing that hard i would think that tree (lack of a better word) "stems" arent all streching that way. plus look at the power/phone line. its just hanging there. again if the wind is blowing hard it would not be the case.

Well, there's also second image from that airport:
http://www.palba.cz/forumfoto/displayimage...&fullsize=1

and I don't think these two pictures are fake:
1. There is just light breeze, at least that Russian flag seems to be made from usual light material.
2. I don't see any short shadows there either from that red ladder
3. That picture isn't small either - copy-pasting branches is pain in the a..

Even though there are also many good fake photos around the net (like two T-50s taking off one after another),
they usually aren't really complicated in the matter of details.

I know there were famous Potyomkin's villages in Russia and they still use this strategy, but... this reminds me once I thought beginning of the As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me was mostly done in 3D...

EDIT: maybe the 5th picture isn't photo of real Pak-Fa and the last one might be photoshopped a bit (colours, number)

... I read it's from Sukhoi's factory airport
and I don't think they needed photoshop for that (also those branches above Pak-Fa don't look photoshopped).
IMHO these two planes were in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCUQxnYbLl0

Also there is page with more photos and info in Russian about Pak-Fa:
http://www.paralay.com/pakfasu.html

cool thing there^^



Hm those pics aren't photoshoped.
If at all they are very very well done 3d models but since I can't see any hint of poligons I doubt that as well.
In addition the lighting is absolutly perfect, the materials are authentic and as it was said before the flags are 100% real, nobody can animate a thing like that (if you look at both pictures from that scene you can see that they are moving)

and then again why should someone put so much effort in such a picture? 0o
even the most skilled modelers would need about a month for such a scene.

The pic with the blue plane is rendered. I think its from the Ace Combat games. Others seem to be authentic. It was also posted on mil photos.

The next iteration of the Type 99, Type 99A2.




CG:


Not much information from the Internet atm, but amongst the visually obvious upgrades are some form of milimeter-wave radar ADS and much thicker frontal turret armor. Look at the size of it...

Copying good stuff is okay in my book.

That doesn't make the Humvee any good though.
