That was cool, you really get a sense of how fast they're going when they land.

Do it at night, then we'll talk.

Who gave the Russians a carrier to land on? (DNWFTA) Did the Americans nab an Mig29 or something?

It's theirs. Wiki says it's the Admiral Kuznetsov. Distinctive appearance from American carriers: check out how the front of the ship slopes upwards like a ramp. It *is* a ramp - they don't use catapults to launch, as American carriers do. They just firewall the engines, go up the ramp and hopefully they're at flying speed before they run out of altitude.

Although that is the Kuznetsov in the video, the Indians actually own more MiG-29Ks than the Russians.

There's some type of engine room heat insulation problem that's keeping the Gorshkov from entering service though.

Ramps are less demanding on the jets (a Nimitz would tear that Mig in half), but it also limits the conditions and kinds of aircraft that can launch.
If the ship isn't steaming full speed into the wind, things get hairy.

/Russians were never very big on air power.
/They see fighters as a way to make the enemy stumble into a ground based air defense.
/I suspect they only own a carrier to say they own one. It doesn't seem to factor much into their planning.

AH, the Russian doctrine - just good enough to work, but make a shiatload of 'em.

/Actually have some decent gear when they try
//Mig 29's still look farking great

So, even the Russian planes have dash cams to avoid insurance scams?
