Can the Russian jets also poke balloons?
Any jet, if it flies by close enough and fast enough.
Let’s make a Balloon with pins to pop other balloons
Pretty sure the jets have little balloon popping needle tips su27 and su34
I think the su 35 would fall apart if it ran into one
If Russia doesn’t want war then they should stop flying their country so close to America’s drones.
@Momcilo Pucar Oh come on.. use your words like a big boy.
@CanadianB·O·W Exactly.I would see a problem if this same accident would happen in Gulf of Mexico
I got a story for you Etsy isn’t baying out anyone cuz of bank collapse
You wanted it!
They wanted it!..
To do such a risky maneuver instead of just shooting it down, they were probably aiming to capture it intact.
@441rider i have trouble understanding you due to the grammar style you use, and so i don’t understand what you’re trying to say or claim in either of your two posts.
U think russian aircrafts also have arms??🤣🤣🤣
If you believe anything in this story…
Are you kidding me?
For everyone to understand. This drone is able to listen to Russian military channels and see where troops are. Russia has the right to take it down to protect their troops.
@Randal Saul A sub right now.
@Davidjune1970 no aeroplane ever contacted another though?
@Y T they don’t have the right to spy on soldiers. Tit for tat situation
@Y T i thought America wasn’t fighting a war…
Russians said that their jet didn’t collide with this drone or use weapons against this drone. Their jet returned safely to its airbase. Pentagon also had to admit that they crashed this drone into water themselves after some “unsafe maneuvers” of the Russian jet .
Glad to hear that the pilot is safe.
@Feral Sage hehehe
Pentagon said that they crashed the drone themselves? I have to take that with a grain of salt.
From a dollar standpoint I bet the damage done to the drone far exceeded that old flanker ;P
@Misses your jokes It is , but the jet didn’t crash . Soo ya , don’t know where you were going with that line of thought but count me out joining you on your trip to fantasy land
@5th Element Cannabis Production jets aren’t really designed to be used as battering rams Ifor one wouldn’t step foot in that aircraft after this, no matter how many vodka toting Russian mechanics told me it was cleared for duty. you have any idea what a bird strike can do to a small single propeller plane?
Jets have missles, why fly into things unless we are already in fairy tail land?
@Misses your jokes A reaper is over 30 million now, an old flanker is worth it’s weight in scrap.
@5th Element Cannabis Production just because it didnt crash doesnt mean it didnt take damage. planes arent made to hit anything. They have weapons for that… im sure it’ll be out of commission for a bit to get repaired.
Eh, the Russian jet is fine and back at base. the hell are you talking about.
Daddy he touched my drone.
I wonder if the dashcam footage from the aircraft is going to look like all the “Russian driving fails” videos online.
The pilot would be blasting 90’s eurodance then shout “cyka blyat” after hitting the drone.
if you hear boilat! prob
Pilot walking out with a crowbar?
Well I would to if it was spying on me.
Maybe it’s time for peace ?!
We are humans that won’t happen
I love that he’s wearing a PlayStation headset !
Used to have the same one
They got to entertain the bone headed gamer audience. They know they customer , that’s for sure
Major General in da Turtle Beaches fo today
Their air force appears as capable as their army.
using outdated and kamikaze tactics
but somehow getting away
Usa does routine operations all the way over there? Wtf
They do operations all across the globe….. They have bases in every continent I believe
Well I guess seeing as how Thump is out of the limelight, back to Russia it is.
If they didn’t catch it on film I don’t believe it and neither should you.
At least Russians don’t hide in the dark to destroy pipelines like coward Americans. They did it and if you are not happy, do whatever you want. 🙃✌️👌💪 💪 💪
This is the part where the bully has his friends push him into the person he wants to fight…
Imagine a Russian drone cruising around over the Gulf of Mexico.Would that be OK?
