- The Russian media on Monday prompted social media madness after releasing photos that seem to indicate that the US Fleet F / A-18 Super Hornet was closed at a Russian fighter junction during a battle-fighting battle.
- Source claim to be a Russian fighter-fighter, appeared in the picture and said two Su-35s were tailing and humiliating US jets while the Japanese F-15 surfaced to support the F / A- 18s, for which the Russians also said
- The United States neither confirmed nor denied the incident, but the US Navy F / A-18 has been working in the area lately.
- Russian media conduct many propaganda stories, and this one, Russian media on Monday, has caused social media madness after releasing photos that seem to show that the US Navy F / A-1
Online, a source claiming to be a Russian fighter pilot, appeared on the picture and said two Su-35s were tailing and "humiliating" US jets while the Japanese F-15 appeared to support F / A-18s, the Russians also said they were maneuvered and embarrassed. Russian commentators rushed to mark the incident as evidence of "the Russians' full superiority and the complete humiliation of the Americans."

The same source said that beating American stealth F-22 fighter in a combat struggle – a combat scenario that includes short-distance reversal and maneuvering – in the sky over Syria, but this incident happened over the far eastern region of Russia.
The source recently became the first to present images of the new stealth to combat a Russian plane, which suggests some degree of official connection or access to Russian military. Russian media, in turn, accept the allegations made by the source.
Lt. Commander. Joe Hontz, a spokesman for the European Command in the United States, told Business Insider that American "aircraft and ships are regularly interacting with Russian units in international airspace and seas, and most interactions are safe and professional."
"Unless the interaction is safe, we will not discuss specific details," he added.

The Russian Su-35 has several advantages over the F / A-18s from the US in struggles. But, as a business insider is well advised, fighting dogs – the focus of World War II air-to-air battles – has taken a drastic reduction in importance in real battles. The F-15's anti-dog capabilities are closer to those of the Su-35, but again these aircraft are now striving to fight and gain mid-range missiles, instead of fighting. In addition, Russian media have a history of military or moral victories in their armed forces, which usually end with something the Russians can cheer at the expense of the US, which is usually exposed to incompetence.
