Nice,  but can they do this:

Crazy South African's. Not sure if the same aircraft, but as a youngster I used to watch harvard formations fly all the time training new pilots. Will never forget the sound of that engine and the smell of the fuel. Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.

"Under the Lend-Lease act large numbers of American aircraft were assigned to Russia. A total of 14,833 US aircraft of all types were sent to Russia between 1942 and 1944.
Russian aircraft production 1942-1944 was 42,427 fighters and 11,797 bombers (additional 30,506 ground attack planes), which results that approximately 20 per cent of the fighters and 30 per cent of the bombers of the Red Air Force were American-built and approx. 10 per cent of the fighters were British-built."

 

Time to start copy and pasting USA/UK aircraft with red stars.

 

As for tanks the USA provided the USSR with over 4,000 M4 Shermans of different types i.e more Shermans to Russia than the Germans built of Tiger I (1,347).
