    Can any Captain America/Comic Book fans explain to me why there are Russian jets in the background of this issue of 'Ultimate Captain America'? Lazy artist? Some kind of hidden message? Or am I mistaken and those aren't Russian planes ...

    Wiki says the cover is from issue #11 of 'Ultimate Captain America'.

    The planes at the top look like MiG-25 Foxbats while the 2 at the bottom look like Su-27 Flankers.

    And yes I am an uber-nerd for letting this bother me :o

    Lazy artist. Looks like they might have been going for f-15's at the bottom, and the shading wound up making them look like flankers. Top left and right looks kinda like they might've been trying to go for f-4 phantoms, and fucked it up. Top center perhaps F-14 with incorrect wing. :dunno:

    More than likely, they didn't know the difference, or just didn't care.

    The bottom are SU-27, yes. The upper left aren't Foxbats though. The upper right shoulder or cap is different than the right forearm's plane. I can't begin to identify the upper right one...but for some reason, I wanted to think Saab.

    Most important though are the USAF insignia, most notable on the upper right aircraft.

    I don't think he got lazy. Those Super Flankers are spot-on.

    One line change would make it an f-15 though.

    No, the tailfins are wider and the cockpit is raised with respect to the fuselage in the Flankers vs. Eagles. The Eagles and Flankers have the same delta wing, but that's pretty much it. Oh, and the top-side profile is the same. But Flankers just pwn Eagles. That and they can do 170 degree dives.

    considering he was created to get kids to hate hitler in the 40's..

    I'd say he was a good character idea

    It's a stupid idea because there's no Australian Dream. No Australian Values. Just Barbies and Kangaroos. Oh wait...I've heard of Captain Kangaroo. That was a stupid idea.
