Shut up and take my money

10157284_748639355180595_883681878295499

I wonder why it's in the prototype PAK FA colors. I remember reading how in the "real" universe the cfa-44 where made by the Soviets in the early eighties. I'm guessing this is also a secret Russian project in the infinity universe

That's actually how most prototype or fresh off the production line planes look like. The only reason I know this is because I live by Boeing and that's what all the new F-18s look like. That paint is for stress testing to make sure the plane is strong enough to actually hold up during turning.(I'm one of the few who has seen a purple F-18)

Morgan is Russian. Always has been with that Sukhoi front.

Would the X-02 be Russian then? Or European?

It could be. Its nose has some similarities to the Flankers and the Falken (and the XFA-27).

It looks and nothing like a flanker. In this universe I see it as more of a US fighter instead of Russian. and the X-02 I would see it as European. But then again who knows.

It's Russian, the nose is of Su-27 sort and it's flying Russian Prototype colors. If not Russian then it's Belkan Iyulian with obvious Russian influence from those mechanical plants. Remember where the StrangeReal Morgan comes from? Now mix it in with RealStrange and it'll work out as Iyulian.

Except with more blue. Because the blue makes it cooler.

Why am I finding myself physically attracted to it.

Yes I know I've seen these pictures before. But this early model of the F-15 looks just the same to a degree.tumblr_lvv0kdahxM1qhagdx.jpg

I also considered it being European because in Strangereal, it was an Erusian jet and the real world equivalent of Erusia is most likely Europe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Isn't that a primer paint?  I seem to remember, from waaaaaaaayyyyyy back, that aircraft were primered with......yellow phosphorus?   (That can't be right.)

I'm pretty sure it's for stress testing.

Shows stress fractures better, I'm guessing, during prototyping?

During final stages of production.

Sidewinders are probably the most widely produced and used air-to-air missile of all time. Many nations use them, so they'd be easy to acquire.

Or, since Namdai never bothers to, you know, get licenses from Eastern Bloc manufacturers, they can put what they want on them. For verisimilitude's sake, they may name them after their Russian counterpart.

How I see it: 

 

Morgan = Russian

 

Wyvern = European 

 

FALKEN = sitting in an area 51 hanger as we speak.  :ph34r:

 

(Also, can I at least have split-screen PvP then?)
