thats right and russia also posses level12 nuclear war heads which are manned atop po9 rockets which are far superior as far as speed is concerned if an all out war broke loose their missiles would land first and be much harder to take out<quoted text>
The most of USA airforce planes are F 15 an F 16 which canbe compared to Russian SU 27 (F 15) and MIG 29 (F 16). American F 18 cannot be compared with any of them. The most of Russian airforce are MIG 29 and SU 27 so you see Russian air force is no more outdated than US one.
Some Russian weapons is much better than US weapons.
For example S 300 is better than US patriots and Russia already has S 400 which can shot down targets at the range of 400 km.
