Thrust Vectoring is a thing used on modern fighters for extra manuverability. In TV(Thrust Vec), the two nozzels for the after burner are made into the controls for the aircraft so they move with the alerons and the elevators. The first aircraft to use thrust vec was the Russian Su-37 "Terminator", however, when the Americans saw thrust vec on the Russian planes, they "borrowed" the idea, then, they took all the credit for being the first to have it even though they weren't. The ability of thrust vec greatly increses the mobility of the aircraft, alowing it to be able to do manuvers other planes can only dream of doing.
The pilot with the thrust vectoring on his plane out turned the other pilot.

Mountain Wyvern's are also the largest Wyvern's, with the Red, Black, and White Wyvern's being the only Wyvern's larger then a Red Dragon. The forest Wyvern's are the Green Wyvern's, and the extremely rare, Red Forest Wyvern, the most rare Wyvern. The fire Wyvern's are the Red Wyvern, Black Wyvern, the Brass Wyvern, and the Copper Wyvern. The Water, or Sea Wyvern's are the Blue Wyvern's, and the White Wyvern. Here is a list of all the sub-catagory Wyvern's: Red Wyvern, Green Wyvern, Black Wyvern, White Wyvern, Blue Wyvern, Copper Wyvern, Gold Wyvern, Silver Wyvern, Brass Wyvern.

The true meaning to the word "ace" is as follows: A fighter pilot that has at least 5 air kills, when a pilot has shot down at least 5 enemy aircraft, a ceremony or party is then held, and he/she gets their "ace" wings.
Pilot #1- Look at that ace, he's getting all the glory.
Pilot #2- Just be happy happy he's on our side, he's one hell of an ace pilot!

One of the worlds fastest intercept jet fighters, capable of over Mach 3. Though not as advanced as the MiG-29, or any of the mighty Sukhoi aircraft. The MiG-31 is a long range fast attack and intercept fighter, with more hten 20 hardpoints for missiles, bombs, and everyother type of thing that go boom when they hit something, along with it's ability to be able to out run almost any missile, almost every missile the U.S. has, make the normal MiG-31 "Foxhound" a deadly opponant. However, later after the MiG-31, MiG started making the MiG-31M "Super Foxhound" or "Fox Hound Mk. II" which had improved avionics, improved nozzels, and many more improvements which made the MiG-31M far greater then the MiG-29, and even some Sukhoi aircraft, along with many of the modern U.S. planes. The improved engines boosted the 31M's top speed to Mach 3.4!!!!! It also had, newly made wingtips to house the massive EMP's(Electro Magnetic Pluse) which could jam all electronics near it, excluding the host aircraft. Unlike most modern U.S. fighter, the Russian MiG-31 and MiG-31M don't need stealth to do their job, because, well, who needs stealth when you can go in, and get out without them even knowning you were there until they got the three massive sonic booms eh?
I was in my MiG-31 and a stupid American pilot came up in his F-15 and fired off all his ammo, I just gunned the throttle and out ran it all, then turned around and whooped his ass!
