Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Sukhoi PAK-FA has made its first flight- looks pretty cool!

  2. Kinda a pisses on the least in look's.... :(
  3. It reminds me of a cross between a YF-23 and an SU-27...shows that the Russian aviation industry is alive and well..
  4. Pretty piece of kit.

    Don't know why they bother though, hasn't anybody told the Russians that fast jets are obsolete and un-necessary in this day and age?
  5. That's just a test run - this is reportedly the first actual drag your ass off the ground 'flight':


    Everyone seems rather happy with the driver.....
  6. It looks like it'll have advanced to transistors in its avionics too.

    I've worked with a lot of Russians, they are by no means stupid and very good at make-shift and make do. Inventive and progressive? No.

    Fantastic hosts and companions though.
  7. The Crabs are pretty good at forgetting to put the gear down too - Red Arrows Hawk at Cranfield, Typhoon at China Lake.
  8. First british pilot flies F-35 Lightning-5th generation firsts all round...

  9. I hope he remembers to put the gear down when he lands.
