Not any more than Russian pilots.
"Russia is screwed in any air war."
Untrue. Russia has the advantage of large numbers of missile silos left over from the Cold War.
"Navy-wise, US wins any engagement, hands down."
Pointless. Not only is this a nation where naval power isn`t important, but modern ships are easily destroyed by aircraft or standoff attack missiles.
"Land-wise, US wins yet again thanks to superior training, superior soldiers, and superior equipment and superior support."
Funny, I can think of a certain conflict the US is part of in which all that means dick. Now take that same conflict, double the manpower on the enemy side, and have every single one armed to the teeth. No, the US would be screwed six ways from Sunday in such an engagement.
Your jingoism is amusing. Try to get your facts from something other than the Military Channel, mkay?
Not true. Modern Russian fighters have an impressive stand-off attack range, and are very good at ambushes.
Bull. The MiG-29 is a very capable craft. It`s that sort of `Our technology is the best!` thinking that led to a rude shock when F-86 Sabres first encountered MiG-15s in Korea.
By the way: These folks aren`t Russian. I lived in Georgia for two years, and let me tell you- these guys *HATE* the Russians.
russian mig shooting georgian uav, definately russian, definately georgian,
whats the point
In soviet russia, flying thing films you
nope, it sucks.
You, sir, win the internets.
The russians have a single plane that is an equal, or perhaps slightly superior to, the F-16 as a fighter jet. It`s a Mig-47 or something like that.
The downside? They have 1. A single Next-gen mig. And that was a project that has yet to move any farther.
The morale of this post? Russia is screwed in any air war. Navy-wise, US wins any engagement, hands down. Land-wise, US wins yet again thanks to superior training, superior soldiers, and superior equipment and superior support.

Besides, Russia stands no chance against any US plane. Their Migs, first off, need to get close range. We have a significant advantage in that our lowest tier fighters can launch missiles at several times the distance.
Our fighter pilots at least have some military experience. Russia`s newest gen of military pilots have only UAV`s and, if it escalate`s, Georgia`s...Air Force to get some knowledge from.
Does georgia have an air force? I wouldn`t mind sending over an F22 and two F35 wingmen and bombing Russian airfields at random.
It`s called provocation... or escalation...
Russia`s expanding its influence zone in the region and Georgia is mad with it. Georgia is USA friend, wants to join NATO, and this makes Russia mad.
This vid is not funny, it`s a bloodshed threat.
Second the Mig 29 is a very capable fighter, and the only reason the F-14, F-15, F-18 are able to take them out is our far superior radar, guidance, and firepower. With equal pilots, in a close range dog fight the mig with its superior handling is extremely dangerous. The only fighter the we have that better handling is the F-22
Well since they`re showing it to a news company, I`m going to say... yes.
Besides, why is it in English? Are they trying to get some attention to themselves?
The MiG 29 gets utterly annihilated by any jet in the US military. poo, I bet you could shoot down that worthless piece of crap with an explosive slingshot!
Oh ya, russia sucks. It would be awesome to invade russia.
