    Default Russian bombers at Waterkloof

    Just saw this message on a spotter forum. Any news from locals? Is it true that Russian bombers are visiting South Africa? What is the exact reason?

    Amazing aircraft, from an engineering perspective. Similar, or copied form depending on who you talk to, the American B1.

    Their ground force philosophy, Order Of Battle and main tactics have not changed much since WW2. Their tanks and other armour brew up if you flick a match at them and their standard assault rifle in full auto is as about as accurate as a drunk brewer pulling into his driveway.

    They still rely on numbers with a spray and pray approach.

    Sure never under estimate them but quantity over quality has and is their way
