Yeah its a fair point, im not sure the Soviet Model was used all that wisely among the Warsaw Pact. I cant believe the Poles would ever accept direction from anyone else. :D

Apparently Egyptian pilots were amused at their allied Russian counterparts coming off second best against the Israelis in 1970 over the canal. 

 

Attachment to doctrine may not survive first contact with a competent enemy.

This is a top rate film from 1974, showing the effort to bring the F-14 Tomcat into service. Has some really good film of the training facilities and some of the Phoenix missile tests.

Incidentally, Periscope films are awesome. They also do a very nice range of repro flight manuals, including 2 for the F14 that ive found really useful.

Couldn't tell if there was some film editing involved, but the ripple firing of 4 Phoenixes was highly entertaining. 

 

Grumman's hiring of the narrating admiral after his retirement was highly illustrative of how the U.S. mil procurement game is played as well.

Yeah, you can almost see his bulging money clip. Or maybe that was just talking about ripple firing phoenixes.

 

There must be more episodes to the series, ill post them up if any appear. In the meantime, there is this primer on the F8U Crusader to keep everyone warm and fuzzy.

 

Makes me think of all the ones that did low overlights over Cuba. Now thats a job I would want no part of.
