Re: US military, technology, arms, tactics

Well made animation of the first day of the ground war during Desert Storm. The sheer magnitude of ground/air forces used against Iraq is amazing.

Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

^^ The BVR part is true, but the coalition had overwhelming superiority both in terms of numbers and technology. They had 10's of AWACS and a full overview of the battle space. Even then they lost aircraft on the first day. Such is the fog of war.
