As an American I’m not super interested in a decal for commie astronauts 😂. But as a War thunder player and somewhat collector I’m gonna try and get it😃

Premium X-15 when?

The commie cosmonaut that gave America a reason to explore the stars.
Space: The final frontier.


You make a fair point😂

Before 1961, America didn’t want to explore the stars?

I’m not going to speeak with authority but could gaijin doublecheck to make sure the source they used isn’t mirrored?

I think its that but flipped and colorized
I don’t believe any varient of the SK series suits had the hoses and knob on the left side, it lead to a handle at the waist on the right side that cconnected into their little ejection pod.


Looks amazing!
