Chinook helicopter and some memories

The Chinook helicopter although good for heavy transport of arms, men and ammunition it is not good for stealth operations against nimble footed infantries in the eastern hemisphere.

1 single RPG from an Afghan Taliban brought this massive mammoth down on 6th August 2012. Mind you the accurate range of an RPG is hardly 250 meters

The crash killed 17 SEALs, 5 Navy special operations troops who support the SEALs, three Air Force airmen, a 5-member Army air crew, 7 Afghan commandos and an Afghan interpreter in August 2012

And Now.... Chinese Navy Commissioned aircraft - J16 is a copy of Russian Fighter - Su-30MK2

China demonstrated fighter J16 to the press at aircraft factory Shenyang Aircraft Co; it is a copy of Russian Su-30MK2, reports Hong Kong military magazine Kanwa referring to a Chinese authoritative military source.

This airplane is a copy of Russian fighter Su-30MK2, the batch of them was sold to China early in 2000's, reports Interfax citing the source.

According to the magazine, Chinese Navy is quite satisfied with performance characteristics of Su-30MK2 fighter. The military asked the Shenyang aircraft factory to copy that fighter with antiship capabilities adapted for Chinese-made missiles. Basically, the fuselage remained the same as J11BS airplane has, said the source.

The magazine reports that the first batch of 24 fighters J16 had been already constructed.

Since early 2010, Chinese Navy began to receive the first batch of domestically-designed multirole all-weather fighters J10A which significantly increased technological level of Chinese Navy, reports Kanwa.

The Chinese military source told to the magazine that "national air force has not received 'cloned' Su-30MK2 yet. Normally, Chinese Navy gets new fighters first. For example, two-seat fighter bomber JH7 joined Air Force only after commissioning into the Navy".
