Do you use Softronic Oy WinRAR or WinAce with the .rar format?

Come to think of it, what is the .rar file type? 

Isn't it a .zip alternative?

Advantages/disadvantages?

Pro/con?

It makes slightly smaller files than zip. It has a few advantages over zip format, and is widely used in distributing dubious materials.

I use Winrar or 7-Zip.

I probably should redo the files as zip files, however, to maximise compatibility for everyone.

Please excuse this off-topic gentlemen, but has anyone wondered why there wasn`t any other manual put online particularly after this one. Who of you really believes that they were declassified? I mean, those are documents not meant for public consumption, rather for servise use, so I would at least put them under some password hidden download, so that noone else unlogged to the forum can download them. I just wonder why I haven`t seen free dowloads of tornado, harrier or even eurofighter manuals out there. What do you think about that? thanks

The date of declassification is printed on the manual itself - Feb. 24, 2004.

"Free" is a different story...   ;D

What is my experience is that the classified (or so-called 'secret') literature is stored in the secret library (with controles access) of any military establishemnt (unit), and after declassification of the book (manual), it is made available to the non-secret library in a given military establishemnt, where the access is unlimited, and thus everybody working in this estabisghment can even take it home for some time. Another way is that the declassified manual is provided to a public use library.

Excellent!

I will post a preliminary translation once I get it downloaded (currently quite slow)

This Word version is an amazing work. The translation deserves to be made into a really nice PDF. Any ideas how I can post my translation so that Russian speakers can refine the translation? Maybe post each page into a forum post?

Paul.

Heres a very rough translation. Yes, I know the layout is somewhat broken, and the translation is a little rough, but this is just a preview. PLEASE do not link directly to these files, but rather to this thread.

Pit has done some work on tidying up the parts of the manual that interests him. However, large sections of the manual are quite dull. Is anyone interested in this procedural stuff, or is the main interest in the weapons systems, avionics etc?

Ok, give me some sections of the manual you are most interested in, I`ll try to tidy it up. I hope the rough translation to the English has already been done.
