    This does remind me of just how much i love the p63 kingcobra in the end. Always had a soft spot for them.

    proofs?

      Spoiler:
    I can tell by some pixels (and a bit of googel) it's a Su-35S.

    well ur facebook page is wrong

    i mean it's basically right - that is just another fucking Flanker but still wrong

    "12 красный" means "red 12"

    also i'm vaguely sure that paint scheme is exclusive to KnAAPO-built 35S

    an inch too low and the drag will instantly implode those planes like Japanese zeros in WW2

    actually i'm surprised the water drag doesn't down them immediately tbh, it's throwing my understanding of physics out the window

    it's almost as if those round things on the bottom of the landing gear have the capability to spin separately from the plane itself, fuck knows why that might be useful.

    According to the article, they actually trained for the stunt. Astounding, isn't it? Also, at that speed, the wheels will hydroplane and it would require a bit of downwards pressure to sink them deep enough to sink in. The planes are all mechanical, so the pilots will have a bit of direct feeling for the water. So to speak.

    And then there is the ground effect but it's still dangerous as fuck. The moment you dip a wheel past it's centerline...

    That;s not how things work you badlord

    Hydroplaning makes sense though

    Ah, so you're one of those who believe the plane takes off.

    itt plane wheels are both frictionless and capable of moving the attached plane

    so planes have powered wheels in Xenoland now ?

    also, here is a explanation of the mechanism that actually allows said wheels to be functionally frictionless, since your insights into mechanical engineering are obviously on par with that of a body-pillow.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Probably actually tapered roller bearings but I am just nit picking.

    The United Kingdom has welcomed home its first four F-35B advanced fighter aircraft, which will be flown by the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.

    Colombian Air Force, IAI Kfir C10 fighter jets armed with Rafael Python V and Derby missiles train with a KC-767 tanker aircraft, in preparation for the Red Flag exercises of July 2018.
