    • Yes, sorry, I meant to comment, but my granddaughters are visiting and I got distracted.

      This one looks like the one they got from Russia. The next one will be the real deal with catapults and arresting gear.

      They seem to be learning very fast, but are apparently not satisfied with the fighter they have been using. They have a stealth fighter that looks like it will take its place.
