    As impressive as that looks, the utility of a ski jump-equipped CV is limited by the relatively small MTOW of the aircraft on board. The Chinese realise this, which is why they're moving away from Soviet-derived,  heavily armed, ski jump-equipped STOBAR designs like the Lianoning and Shandong towards a US-style CATOBAR configuration with EMALS (look up "Type 003 aircraft carrier"). Still very cool to see a non-Western approach to naval aviation.

    Did I mention I love watching modern Jets take off solely on power alone? Lmfao. look at this ***disgusting*** AOA on carrier based Mig 29's! Get off my planet this technology seems alien!

    Yeah they're genuinely fantastic. I really love learning about the trade/economic agreements between various nations that lead to certain countries ending up with certain arms. It puts WWI into a fantastic perspective.

    I love these clips of Italian F-104s. It's 90s extravaganza - there's porn film music, tactical 'staches, questionable editing and Cold War jets. What more could you possibly want?

    Incredible air-to-air footage of Su-25SM3s in action at a target range. Note the variety of aircraft at the airfield: Su-35s, Su-30s, Tu-22s, Il-76s, MiG-29s, Su-34s and others.

    So you're one of those people who watched the trailer so many times they could've watched a full movie instead? Join the club. 😀

    Me too.  I've watched it about 100 times.  And have now resorted to watching other people react to it.  I know.  I'm sick.

    My hope is that this Yo-Yo, who seems to be responsible for the DCS MiG-29 flight model, will not be involved with the full fidelity MiG-29, as he is totally resistant to any input. He indeed did quite a good job with the aerodynamic intricacies (although they feel a little exaggerated here and there, but this may well be due to the crappy steering behavior), but he totally failed to take into account the limitations of PC flight simulation hardware and adjust the simulated FCS accordingly - and he is not willing to change this one bit. It's frustrating.

    Simon from ED strongly hinted at it in a recent podcast with the Grim Reapers. They haven't made a formal announcement yet (they're "looking into it"), because they have the Russian MoD information barrier to overcome. Not sure if the Fulcrum would come before or after the also-rumoured AH-1 or AH-64, but after a major rotorcraft debut in the form of the Mi-24 I'd expect their next release to be fixed-wing (and not NATO, because F-16 and F/A-18C). 
    Summary of the interview here.

    I played both of these on my sister's Amiga. To a 5yo Firefly strafing and dogfighting was where it was at.

    First Complex Flight Sim and I will say that looking back it was impressive compared to other titles out at the time.

    That's going to be quite difficult, with his current job and the YouTube channel he has hardly any time for games.

    One of the greatest rock bands ever. My favourite album is Quadrophenia, though Sell Out is great too. 
    Speaking of all-time greats, here's another one:
    I watched the similarly-titled documentary the other week, it's exceptional. I've always been an INXS fan, but now that fondness has grown into a full-time obsession.

    I've known him for years, we flew together a fair few times during my War Thunder days as well as my short-lived IL-2: BoS transition. He's a fine chap, always insisting on choosing the best possible source material for his videos.
