The Defense of The United States is at Great Risk:

New Russian Fighter SU-30MK
January 22, 2008
Russia now has Number 1 fighter plane in the world...
The SU-30-Vectored Thrust with Canards.
As you watch this airplane video, look at the canards moving along side of, and just below the canopy rail. The 'canards' are the small wings forward of the main wings? The smoke and contrails provide a sense of the actual flight path, sometimes in reverse direction.
This video is of an in-flight demonstration flown by the Russian's-30MK fighter aircraft.
You will not believe what you are about to see.
The fighter can stall from high speed, stopping forward motion in seconds (full stall). Then it demonstrates an ability to descend tail first without causing a compressor stall. It can also recover from a flat spin in less than a minute.
These maneuver capabilities don't exist in any other aircraft in the world today. Take a look at the video with the sound up. This aircraft is of great concern to U.S. and NATO planners. We don't know which nations will soon be flying the SU-30MK, hopefully China isn't one of them.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Note:
Has evaluated this advanced aircraft flight control systems and concept for many years as an extension of stability control and means of control.
Canards and vectored thrust were among many concepts examined to extend our fighter aircraft performance. Neither our current or next generation aircraft now poised for funding and production can in any way match the performance of this Russian aircraft NOW FLYING in any near combat situation. Somehow the bankrupt Russian aircraft industry has out produced our complex politically tainted aerospace industry with this technology marvel.
Scratch any ideas of close in air-to-air combat with this aircraft in the future.
Military Experts around the world sum this aircraft up in one word:
Wow !!!!

My Personal Comment:
The Russian’s were able to accomplish this by focusing on their own country and not the world’s problems. America must stop playing world policeman.
We need to stop issuing government contracts to the same old defense contractors, which are focused on corporate greed and not the best interest of America.
We are in real trouble and no one seems to either care of acknowledge the problem.
