Goldeneye - The Lying Migs
Ok this is quite a nerdy one. When the evil dude fires the Goldeneye to cover his tracks and then escapes in the helicopter, Goldeneye fires. After this two MIG fighters appear and crash from the electromagnetic pulse, but this is impossible as all Russian jets run primarily on analogue valves and not circuitboards so the planes in fact would not be effected at all! Can't trust researchers can you?

Youre trying to tell us that there is not a single circuit board in an advanced russian fighter plane??? comon.. things with valves are big.. first i dunno about you but from what i can see i dont see a room or two of valves to control the fuel gauge sitting in the back of the mig25-foxbats... second... there have been circuit boards for navigation.. including GPS systems, and weapons systems etc in all of the MIG series from the mig17 fresco up (definitly, and possibly lower... however i cannot confirm it) but from mig17's up they have had ciircuit boards and a lot of them... mig17's were made around 1947, the movie was long after that.. and mig17's are the ones with the great big hole in the nose. The plane in the movie has a pointed nose, i cannot be sure about the model though. The first purely pointed nose mig was the mig23 flogger, made in 1970...(replaced in 1999) so when was the movie set again.. bcos if they dont have mig23's why would they have mig 17's obviously this valve comment is complete rubbish i dont think that they were gonna downgrade their technology..?

The reason Russia used valves was so they wouldn't be affected by EMP, (meanwhile the Americans were laughing at them for using old technology, unaware of the GPS problem)

Actually, the MIG 21 was the first true pointed nose airplane. The nose was more of an aerodynamic cone and pitot tube which stuck out of the front of the engine. By controling how far the cone protruded from the engine, they could control the ammount of air going into it. These planes are were built in the late fifties early sixties and are still in use by some countries. And no, there is not a single circuit board in them. The Russians believed in something called triple redundancy. Their primary systems were analog (not digital), their secondary were mechanical (fluid) and their tertiary were also mechanical (wire and pulley) This made the planes not only very easy to maintain and very hardy, but completely resistant to an EMP burst.
