- Reaction score
There's some pics floating around from the early 2000s with what appears to be a Flanker series engaged in BFM over the NTTR....They did. From the 70s to the 90s (?) the US operated a dedicated aggressor / DACT squadron of Soviet / Chinese aircraft. The squadron was called the Red Eagles, based at TTR, and was secret while it was operational.Question about aggressor squadrons in the US
since the US has the money and network to acquire actual Soviet/Russian types, maybe even Chinese types
could they build an aggressor squadron using actual aggressor aircraft?
A separate unit, the Red Hats, flight tests Soviet / Chinese / Etc. aircraft. The Red Hats still operate from Groom Lake and Edwards.
