How do you think if aircraft can perform Pugachev's Cobra manoeuvre and Kulbit manoeuvre when being hit?
If you don't know what is this manoeuvres. See it:
Here is Kulbit manoeuvre performed by a Sukhoi Su-37http://youtu.be/7ALt3m3Kkhw
Here is Pugachev's Cobra manoeuvre performed by a Sukhoi Su-27http://youtu.be/1EpJ3KoUNmI
Infact, a lot of aircraft can make this manoeuvres, I give you 2 video of Sukhoi aircrafts just for reference. So, please do not ask "why isn't F-22,...?" Thank.
