    This once again proves that you need to buy reliable and modern equipment. Such as Su-30 and Su-34. And in the future, Su-35

        It's a hard profession to be a pilot.
        One friend of mine, a pilot, once told me: “It happens that you board a plane and don’t know whether you will return or not. But you still want to fly, and you understand that it’s better than flying, I still don’t know anything else. ”
        Another civil aviation pilot once told me that "practice shows that the life of pilots is generally short. They do not all die by their death. Well, then you need to live your life so that you are well remembered, - to bring people how as much benefit as possible. " He said that and crashed after 2 years. He was a very good person. Mandatory. And he loved life very much. He treated everything in life like the last time. His son grew up and also chose his father's profession.

      Su-xnumx are also falling. Any plane crashes sooner or later, it is a matter of raid and the number of sides. F-30 is now the most common aircraft in the world, and therefore fall once a week.

        He is also single-engine, which does not add to his reliability.

      Does this only prove that all equipment can fail, or did you forget the recent example with the Mig 31, also during a training flight?

    F-16 requires careful maintenance and preventive maintenance.
    He does not forgive hacks.
    But if you keep it according to the instructions, it turns into an effective working
    a horse. And he can maneuver the battle, and work on the ground in the same way
    It is loaded, like a camel, all sorts of bombs and pylons
    and he pulls them perfectly on one engine.

    "F-16 requires accurate maintenance and preventive maintenance."

    Exactly. Smart, Egyptians, flew on MiGs, ai shaitan arba. F-16, oh yakshi. But you have to pay.
    Our weapons are the best. Why? Because it is a tool.
    Amerovsky is a mechanism. I took a gun, take a workshop with me, it’s definitely useful.
