Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Thanks, comrades! US SOUTHCOM amuses Twitter followers with pic celebrating US Air Force birthday featuring RUSSIAN warplanes”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The simple graphics, posted on the occasion of the 74th birthday of the USAF, featured three top-down views of warplanes. The silhouettes don’t feature much detail, but their tail sections strongly implied that the aircraft are not from the fleet deployed by the American armed forces. Instead, they strongly resemble Sukhoi Su-27 twin-jet fighters.

The apparent gaffe was met with a strong reaction on social media that leaned heavily towards mockery.
