In November 2019, in the Arctic, successful tests were carried out of the newest hypersonic aviation missile system, "Kinzhal," from the MiG-31K fighter.
Today we decided to compare the capabilities of two very similar in characteristics and functionality fighter of the largest military forces in the world - the United States and Russia.
There are many models of 4th and 4 ++ generation fighters, and in addition to traditional players in this market such as the United States and Russia, the last decade has given birth to new manufacturers, new models and new trends in the field of aircraft construction.
In the battle of equivalent aircraft carrier formations and groups, the Chinese side suffers significantly large losses, even with the possible use of promising hypersonic anti-ship missiles.
I would like to note right away that each of the special forces is elite, which means that the supply of weapons, equipment and special equipment both in Russia and in the United States will be maximum, that is, the fighters will get what they need.
There are currently two aircraft in the world that are significantly different from all the others. These are the Russian 4th generation Su-35 and the American fifth generation F-35 fighter. It is safe to say - they are the top of the top.
The American magazine The National Interest decided to evaluate the capabilities of the Russian Su-35S generation 4 ++ multi-role fighter in an air battle with American aircraft. It turned out extremely interesting.
Tanks T-90 and M1A1 "Abrams" are typical representatives of the Soviet and Western schools of tank building, which are based on various design and technological ideas.
Experts of the American publication The National Interest compared the Russian Su-35 fighter and the Eurofighter Typhoon, which is in service with NATO countries (Germany, Spain, Austria, Great Britain).
The most popular assault rifle systems in the world (or, in the more familiar terminology, “assault rifles”) are samples created on the basis of AR and AK, less common are FN, H&K, AUG. Personally, I am selflessly in love with the AR-15 concept.
Do not hesitate, in Russia there are wheeled vehicles, not worse than the American ones! Alas, these are not cars and trucks. But the comparison of the Russian armored personnel carrier with its direct foreign competitor does not seem to be in favor of the "American"
The Mossberg 500 was released by O.F. Mos sberg & Sons, Inc. in 1962. The weapon used new technical solutions for that time, such as an aluminum alloy receiver and the use of plastic parts.
So, the Degtyarev plant in Kovrov, by order of the military department, began mass production of a 5.45 mm A-545 assault rifle, which is intended to become a serious competitor to the AK-12 adopted for service at the end of 2018.
Currently, many military and people interested in weapons periodically ask themselves which automatic is better - a Russian AK or an American M16. These disputes often lead to the fact that opponents remain each with their own opinion.
Russian air defense systems S-400 and S-500 are advertised in the press and are in demand in many countries. However, are they effective? Experts wanted to answer this question.
The Americans are watching with interests as the new Chinese J-16 attack fighters in large quantities enter the combat aircraft of the Celestial Empire. In addition, these machines have significant potential for further improvement.
In addition to physical clashes between border detachments, both countries began to actively pull military equipment to the disputed site and transfer aircraft to nearby military airfields.
Perhaps there is no greater rivalry in the air between these two fighters - the American F-16 and the Russian MiG-29. When we talk about them, we have the feeling that they cannot really exist without each other.
As the Su-57 enters serial production in much larger quantities than previously expected, Moscow is making a concerted effort to pitch the fifth-generation fighter to major arms importers including Turkey, India, and China.
The Russians are now developing new air dominance aircraft with a long-range strike capability -- the Su-35 and the Pak FA (frequently called the PAK T-50) – which will pose a significant threat to NATO Europe.
