Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

Again.....that's spoon feeding. If you found BRF surely you can find NPO Saturn's website. If they say AL-31FP has only 1Kgf thrust then that EXACTLY what it has. The only other way to over rule that info would be: 1) You find the latest MAKS 2009 poster from NPO Saturn or Ufa (mfg of engine) that t...
