Perhaps one interesting difference is that right now more of our military, at least at the lower levels, is more supportive of Putin than of our own leaders.

That's because they want to do more than just training. Garrison duty is a bitch, with officers looking for the least bit of tarnish on a button, as opposed to wartime, when capability is held to highest regard, and buttons are a dim fourth.

That doesn't surprise me yak, sort of a "round em up put em in a field and bomb the bastards" attitude.

RE: The aeiral warfare thread.
It is the 80th anniversary of the Supermarine Spitfire.

80th.

The most gorgeous aircraft ever IMHO.

Great aircraft, the Corsair. I read Boyington's and Blackburn's books. Great reads.

Thanks to the RN that they then served in the USN off its carriers.

The PE 2 was pretty ugly, but effective.

RE: The aeiral warfare thread.
I stopped at a store one day, small town in Indiana. I heard a prop plane overhead and looked up to see a ZERO! I was a bit stunned, but then I looked behind it and saw a P-51! My flabber was well and truly gasted and I screamed "To the airport!!!" The Confederate Air Force was stopping for gas and we got to do some walk-arounds. Thumbsup
