These are the sort of pix we need to show those ignorant extremists who tell us that capitalism is the only way and that socialism never achieved anything.

The Soviet Union did have a few achievements like very elaborate subways and some social reforms like introducing the world's first eight hour day, forty hour week working conditions. The status quo in the West is that they were technologically backward and had to copy everything. Makes you wonder why the U.S.A. spent billions upon billions in the cold war to try and stay in front of them.

 

Here's a few examples of their under achievement in aerospace:

 

First man made satellite

 

First vehicle to enter earth orbit

 

First biological being in space

 

First man in space

 

First woman in space

 

First multi person crew in space

 

First solo space walk

 

First multi crew space walk

 

First space station

 

First multi vehicle docking facilities

 

First hard moon landing

 

First soft moon landing

 

First traverse of the dark side of the moon

 

First moon samples returned to Earth

 

First landing on Venus

 

First rocket launch complex

 

First liquid fuel rocket

 

First air augmented rocket

 

First rocket in space

 

First space exploration rover

 

First pressure suit

 

First anti ballistic missile

 

First air to air guided missiles

 

First helmet mounted weapons sight

 

First ICBM

 

First submarine launched ballistic missile

 

First multi engine aircraft

 

First mono wing, all metal four engine bomber

 

First fighter plane with retractable gear

 

First rocket powered fighter plane

 

First female fighter ace

 

First flying wing aircraft

 

First pilot to perform a loop

 

First knapsack parachute

 

First drogue parachute

 

First flying boat

 

First turbo fan engine design

 

First turbo prop patent

 

First airliner

 

First supersonic airliner

 

First successful jet airliner

 

First successful helicopter design

 

First successful tandem rotor helicopter

 

First Mach 1 capable wind tunnel

 

First pioneering of stealth technology

 

Founding of aerodynamic theory

 

I realise it's a very incomplete list, but it's just not good enough. Dumb Socialists.

so you want our wages or theirs spacer.png neil

It's all relative (to an extent). I worked in the Czech Republic in the late 90s on some of their nuclear sites. The average salary was equivalent to £200/mo whereas mine (after tax) was more than 10 times that. Yes - for them to come to the UK or any other western country was an expensive proposition - but most had cars (inc. Japanese and European), ate well, had accommodation and otherwise lived a largely similar material life as us.. Of course, I loved working there as at the time, a pint in London was £2.80-ish and there, a pint on average in a Czech bar in Prague was about 50p, but could be had for as little as 11p - and their beer is bloomin good... Puts VBs to shame... There were a few ex-pats there that lived a high life on what would be average Euro salaries - yes...
