    Word from a Russian I talked to is that this was a Georgian aircraft, and they`re just trying to start some trouble with the Russians. Of course, he wasn`t military, so think of it as you will.

    I`d better do some research on this; it`d be interesting to see how it turns out. My prediction: Further skirmishes, which will likely cool off due to international attention.

    In soviet russia, UAV shoots down YOU!

    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.

    Well since they`re showing it to a news company, I`m going to say... yes.

    As an American, I don`t see much of the Russian Migs. Really nice. I hope the day never comes when a Mig (or any enemy aircraft, really) shoots down a Predator or other American UAV.

    First this was on the US news, I saw it last night.

    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

    "Why were they shooting that down anyways?"

    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.

    *from the ub3r US citizen: lompocus*

    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.

    The whole point of the migs is taking combat in small steps, like a german blitzkrieg. As they move forward they can constantly refuel them in teh territory they take over. The newer migs, iirc, actually have range in them.

    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.

    Lomp, look up Russia`s new tank, the Black Eagle. It`s built to pretty much be war in a can. A T-80U chassis with a completely rebuilt body, interior, turret, and responsive armour. It could easily give an Abrams a run for its money.http://russianarmor.info/Tanks/MBT/b_eagle.html The MiG 35 is Russia`s newest fighter, and though they only have one, if the project continues, it could be the second most lethal jet out there (The F-22 does win, and the F-35 isn`t quite ready yet) http://www.defense-update.com/products/m... . Russian quality control isn`t what it was in the 80`s. They turn out some decent kit over there now. What it comes down to is training, and the Russians still don`t have the resources for superior training yet. The answer to that lies in Siberia. Oh, and Russia has the largest conventional bomb ever. I`m too lazy to find a link on that.

    "The MiG 29 gets utterly annihilated by any jet in the US military."

    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.

    Not true. Modern Russian fighters have an impressive stand-off attack range, and are very good at ambushes.

    "Our fighter pilots at least have some military experience."

    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?
