  1. I thought that tanks looked the ugliest when stripped down to the chassis and superstucture. But looking at that Su-35 airframe…..

  2. The Su-35 picture it seems as though this airframe is in some sort of test rig.It looks like the entire is set up for this testing my guess is that these rigs are used stress test the airframes.It looks like the planes are set in a scaffold of some sort and that those numerous blocks covering certain surface areas I am guessing that this is designed to test the airframe to failure.It is a special facility defiantly not what would been in a normal factory or active duty hangar.
