      Fact. This is what a sharp increase in its use leads to. The equipment is already old, and it doesn’t stand it ... Here they lived quietly, but then they decided to threaten us, but it’s like

        It is just right to recall the words of mattresses about the "decrepit heritage of the USSR." But what are they themselves: better?

            Pouring mud over everything Soviet / Russian is considered good form.

      Only that which does not fly does not fall. In principle, this is the norm, given how many exercises the "Western partners" have now. At the same time, the myth of the exceptional reliability of Western technology is debunked. Liberasts are indignant.

      Comandante Barzini - funny name))

      Karma to see. repeat Although it may turn out to be "ends in the water", it seems that many people were caught in Guta, it seems they are "preparing".

    The United States and its allies were attacked by a “lapad”, which mowed aviation almost daily. It is already difficult to attribute it simply to a statistical case.

    What's this? Already to ten score close?
    I imagine the howl of our so-called liberals, if this happens to us.

    Until now, the echo is spreading about the loss of two fighters on Kuznetsovo. laughing

      Kuznetsov's black smoke is still remembered. You are rightly saying that we would have howled so that even die. There is a theory that this is all arranged by their own elites to show that they are not completely ready for war, and calmed down

    But because it is necessary to change or continue to step on the rake Boards, ride, fly, walk on the sea until through holes appear .... crying
