Has any good ever come from selling the Russians any type of military or avionic hardware?
They stole the Whittle jet engine from the british that they used for the MIG 15
They bought two Boeing passenger jets and made hundreds of their own following the Boeing design after reverse engineering.
In 1945 Three B-29's had to make an emergency landing in Russia during ww2. They imprisoned the air crews...( Russia's war Alli's) and they reversed engineered the Bombers and made thousands of them from that theft. After a year the crews were let go.
Russia made a bad copy of the U.S. space shuttle that actually flew into space...unmanned though...
The Russians steal every piece of technology that they either steal of they buy one then reverse engineer it and mass produce it and bypass all the laws of international business.
All the scientists in Russia cant build a ship of their own???

Don't say those things about Russia.
Robespierre wouldn't like hearing it. He's of Russian ancestry. Just go to the Russia forum. He thinks Russia can do no wrong.
He thinks Russia was at its greatest when Stalin ruled it.
I'm not making this up. He has said many times he admires Stalin and so what if Stalin killed millions of people. As Robespierre said about Stalin, "You can't make an omellette without breaking a few eggs". Nice guy that Robespierre LOL

Look who's talking!!
Almost every bit of US space technology originated from Germany and all the scientist prisoners who were forcibly relocated in America.
Remember Von Braun maybe? The father of the V1 and V2.
Well, the US space program was led by him!!
As for jet technology, the US obtained the Whittle design from the Brits, after which they removed captured Messerschmitdt 262 and Heinkel to study them in the states, helped by German designers. The Sabre was mostly based on German research by Arado.
The X series was based on the British Miles program that was sold after WWII against US help. Britain was prevented by the US to break Mach 1 first, and made to scrap its aircraft!
US helicopter technology came from the Soviet Union: Sikorsky was Russian.
The Republic US aircraft company was created by another Russian: Seversky.
So much for America being a pioneer in aeronautic and space!!
