    Seeing as the F14 looks nothing like an F-15, apart from twin engines and two tails, which agreed the MIG35 has too.

    And does there have to be a reason?

      With that third picture you have there Listy, would it be safe to say that the LSO waved that particular approach away , and asked very nicely if he could come around again!!!!!!!

        OK.....Maybe Not The F-15 Eagle:



        But The Russian Mig-35 Fulcrum F:



        Does bear a very close striking resemblance too The Boeing F-18 Super Hornet:



        And it looks even more like Our Grumman F-14 Tomcat:



        I guess I am just a little miffed over the fact that it doesn't seem to me like The Russians have come out with anything of their own design since like.....what?......1941?????

          Oh FFS Duke William, you are imagining things.

            Mig-35 finally gives the Russians an all-glass cockpit. Ivan loves his analog gauges and will probably miss them. Note that the ever-secretive Russians did show the LCDs but were very thorough turning them off so you can't see the graphics. In the old Mig-29 one of the most important gauges was a giant analog clock. The pilot would fire a missile and watch that clock mentally computing missile flight and impact times.

              I like the MIG-35 , reminds me a lot of the two seat FA-18D hornet. I think the MIG-35 is probably what the Mig -29 family of jets should have been like from the outset. If memory serves me , i believe that this aircraft is solely for export to India, as this is the only flyable example

                Not sure if true but this is what I read somewhere;

                Russia has unveiled the MiG-35 at air show Aero India 2007 in Bangalore, amid Moscow's keen interest to sell these planes to India. It was reported that the MiG-35 made her way from Moscow to Bangalore in less than three hours, assisted with in-flight refueling on the way, flying at supersonic speeds.

                They were keen to make some money, any money from this plane!!!

                      There are only so many ways to put together a twin-tailed, twin-engine, fighter with a nose mounted radar that will do mach 2.
                      Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

                        I'm not really seeing the resemblance.

                          You aren't that farmiliar with jet fighters are you. They look nothing alike apart from the features on all jets.
