Title: MiG-2000
Post by: GTX on May 08, 2006, 12:02:12 am
Remmeber the good old days when the Soviet Union existed and rumours and conjectures of new combat aircraft came out to scare the wits out of us all.  For instance, who remembers this MiG-2000 from the mid 1980s:

Might make the basis of a good what-if model.
