Mukul,
That would be the AV-8 Harrier of the United States Marine Corps...

that's a design by the italian communist aircraft designer called bartini. it was a long range bomber design for USSR which was supposed to land on water to take care of the problem with finding airstrips at the extreme limit of their flight range.

Oh sorry! Didn't think that you are awaiting my confirmation though I read your post :)
You are right, it is A-57 Bartini bomber.

Looks in low level terrain following flying the Hawk and Harrier are much more mavourable and hence pilots fly them faster than EF and F-15.

I noticed the F-15's have drop tanks so I thought they were F-15'C. But some of those F-15's also seem to be having CFT's, do F-15E's carry drop tanks?

^^ Couldn't spot a single bird with CFT, but then again i watched the video on my mobile so i am bound to have missed a few things... Could you tell me at what time in the video did you spot Eagles with CFT's???

I think I saw a F-15 with CFT at 0:55,1:03,1:21 and 1:40.
Most of the time the f-15's are carrying the CFT's

Gives you an idea of just how close the planes fly - Image

There is a bit of telephoto compression at work but still good enough I suppose for the purpose.

Thanks Aniket.. Just saw the video on my laptop.. Seems that all the Eagles were strike eagles to me too...

Strike Eagles with Drop tanks, hmm, I used to think CFT's gave enough range to free up all the pylons for weapons.

Aditya_Vsaar,
All most all the photos of the Strike Eagles that i have seen shows them carrying a Drop Tank..
My guess is they are being used as ballast for balancing as the payload is released..

Or Bala I came across this


F-15 Eagle / F-15E Strike Eagle, McDonnell Douglas

Quote:
To extend its range, the F-15E is fitted with two conformal fuel tanks (CFT's) that hug the fuselage, producing lower drag than conventional, underwing fuel tanks. They carry 750 U.S. gallons (2,800 L) of fuel, and house six weapons hardpoints in two rows of three in tandem. However, unlike conventional fuel tanks, CFT's cannot be jettisoned, so increased range comes at the cost of degraded performance with respect to the F-15 as a result of the additional drag and weight. Similar tanks can be mounted on F-15C's, but the range/performance tradeoff is typically not worth it for an air superiority fighter.

The number of different aircraft developed and retired by both sides during the cold war is simply staggering. Here's another example of the many short lived military aircraft (still built in rather large numbers by today's stds.) of the cold war:

Bala is right. It is the F4D Skyray one of the first carrier borne supersonic interceptors. To illustrate my point, the Skyray was operational for a grand total of 8 years before it was retired. Yet, the amirkhans built over 400 of them :shock:

OK what is this metal coloured tip under the nose of the phantom? It is left unpainted as per instructions stamped on it.

Well that extension under the Phantom's nose housed the primitive IRST system (I think it was called the AAA-4 IR sensor). I think only the navy's F4J version didn't have it. They probably removed it and covered the housing with the metal tip.

Chiru,
The gun pod was on the underbelly pylon and in the later version a pylon was removed to place the gun there...
The one Boseullah is pointing to is an optical sensor of some kind..
