Carlo Moiana: Indian super buffalos RESPONSE

Very interesting the article about the results of the joint training between Indian and American air forces, and how Americans were defeated in air combat simulations. But the article missed the main reason of American failure: Indian pilots are well trained and have good tactics, but the most important is that their aircraft (mainly of Russian origin) are better than American ones. Russians usually have a low self steem about their own industry and technology, but in aeronautics and weapon industry they don't have reason to feel like this: Russian airplanes like MiG-29, MiG-31 and the big Su-27 family (Su-30, Su-33, Su-35, etc) easily surpass their American counterparts, and even the old MiG-21, still largely used by Indian air force and recently upgraded, is a though enemy for the most sophisticated American fighter. So, why Indians could defeat Americans? Simply enough: because they have Russian aircraft in large quantities and good pilots.

Modern European monarchy is, perhaps, one of the most discussed topics in relation to Europe. Some are happy about the cultivated tradition and strongly support the monarchy in the EU, while some are very unhappy with the ruling family and call it a sham. The latter are largely right as the monarchs have forgotten about their responsibilities

Who needs modern monarchs?
