Of all the cool-ass fucking words that start with F, they picked FINKIN for the Berkut? ARE YOU SHITTING ME?!?!
ITT we think of better NATO reporting names for the Su-47
YOU’RE FUCKING WELCOME, WHICHEVER NATO AGENCY OR PERSONNEL ASSIGNS NAMES TO RUSSIAN AIRCRAFT
Just what I was waiting for. You’re pissing off at Finkin, NATO has named Russian aircrafts as Frogfoot, Fishbed and even Hind
Doesn’t make those names any better either! The fuck is a Fishbed anyway?
