Originally posted by Taranov Sure, we copy JUMO-004 and BMW-003 engines (RD-10 and RD-15, i think). But german jet engines suck - only 10 hours of work. VK-1 - licenzed copy of Rolls-Royce jet engine.:frog: Soviet copy of Me-262 - totaly boolshit. Su-9 looks like Me-262, but it's a different plane. USA, France and UK also use german technologies. Do you know, for example, who is a Verner fon Braun, father of US Airspace program?;)

The Alekseyev bureau made 3 aircraft, all 3 were just slightly modified copies of the Me-262. So much so that Yakovlev complained and Stalin ordered that they be disolved.

It's not ony copying though, any chance the Russians had, they stole German technology, particularly aircraft. Many FW-190s were taken as the Russians (mainly with US/Uk and German technology and weapons I might add) advanced, and as they were captured they were immediately painted with a star and used against the Germans :rolleyes:

Why? It gun was able to defeat all but the heavyest tanks, and when in defence I'd rather be in a low profile Stug. then in a big bulky panther :uhoh:

I would suppose infantry would pose more of a threat considering it has no turret and no inner machine guns. Unless of course that outer machine is remote controlled (ala late german tanks).
