    1. It seems that the US stole the soviet design…
      or… wait… I be trollin’


    2. Pretty bad-ass looking design… too bad it never actually worked.


    3. It did actually work.
      It flew once… the orbital flight lasted 205 minutes… during that time, Buran made two full laps around the Earth
      it had no pilots whatsoever
      every stage of the flight was controlled by a computer
      unlike the US shuttle, which is traditionally being landed manually
      so… it was a pretty badass russian toy…

      but still
      no one gives a fuck about all that shit I just wrote (even me)

      so I’ll just add some boobs to my post
      (. )( .)


    4. Our thrusting rockets are bigger. Just sayin’.


    5. Russia never really could do much of anything original w/o copying us first.


    6. Those images are not to the same scale, the russian one is bigger. IIRC One of the russian ones is in austrialia sitting somewhere rotting.
