Nozzles? It is screaming YF-23 to me.
Russia has decided to join a tender on the delivery of six light fighter jets to the Philippines AF.
also, can we be sure the missiles in question are indeed rvv-ae, like the newspaper say? or are they rather rvv-sd, which would make much more sense, knowing rvv-ae is a model that will soon be 20 years old. ?
Well, I can see replacing the engine, rotor, & transmission (as well as the tail rotor) and some avionics & commo systems from the UH-1Y, which will merge with the USMC supply train as well as address most of the issues the USAF wants to fix... but what will it be called?"To provide the UH-1 with an additional 30 years of service and retain its MC rates, the rotary branch is attempting to resolve sustainability and capability shortfalls."
The USAF wants to increase the UH-1N's endurance, range, speed, all-weather capability, survivability and equip it with modernised communication and navigation system capabilities. "The government is seeking interested sources to fulfil [fiscal year]14-18 requirements," the RFI reads.
The UH-1Y and AH-1Z have used all the letters in the sequence, so either they try to find a letter that wasn't used, go back to the start and call it UH-1AA, or perhaps play off the "partial UN-1Y" modernization and call it the UH-1Ynot?

No it's a MiG-23BN , pic taken from the exercises last year (so no it's not dropping bombs on "civilians")
