  1. Hi. --- "Russian Falcons": (that fake canopy camo is 10/10)
  2. It's not a cupola per se, it's more of a steel block... Hatch? It blocks frontal visibility, but protects you from frontal small arms fire. T-72 is the same, but it has glass in the middle so you can see.
  3. Does this count? Iraq. M1A2 vs MiG-25. My friend (he's that guy with the camera) said that they were surprised to see it actually looking good after this. Obviously it was ruined, but it looked in OK condition for being run over by a 70 ton tank (I know the official weight of the M1A2 is much lower than that, but they carried more than average loadout there).
  4. They didn't need them. They were meant to be used as ambush/defense tanks. You are meant to know where the enemy was comming.. Most of the time anyway. German crews did like German cupolas, though (and tbh, their cupolas are much better than the T-34 "hatch". Should've used T-72 style hatch with glass in between. The early T-34 one protects you from fire, sure, but it also blocks visibility). If I am not wrong, it was Otto Carius who designed the Leopard 1's cupola. It's not a tank though.. At least by German classification. (though the StuG IV did replace Panzer IV losses fun
  5. To be honest, I don't remember. I think the difference is very minor and mostly in interior. My friend says it's something after the SU-37 based on its camo, but I have no idea, sorry. (should be worth noting that no Russian service plane has a thrust vector iirc, so don't look for in service Flankers. Check out prototypes/demonstrators)
  6. Thrust Vectors Not sure what plane though.. SU-30M demonstrator? SU-37?
  7. Posted this in the T-50 thread, but here's it again. T-50 Control Surfaces.
  8. Found this Dropbox a long while back. Not sure if it applies, though. Not mine.
  9. Sorry, won't use NATO name again Here, glorious Krokodil:
