Thanks Comrade/Tavaritsh!

There was another red-star Mustang with vertical star, but not for the public laterally: especially for the Leader on the place facing the parade:

No greater demonstration of superiority of Great Big Red Star has ever been more proudly created, comrade!

The members of the Presidium will reward you accordingly after the bar closes.

Engineer comrade Tofi argued that guns are capitalistic weapons and proletarian pilots should use ramming fighters
Maybe the red star was not the very best lifting area ever but is is/will be forever the best weapon for sure:

Comrade Tophe will soon be promoted to Commissar of the annual May Day Celebration, as his designs evoke most glorious feelings of pride in the creativity of our design bureaus!

Thanks!
And you probably know that the turbojet revolution in aviation was Soviet (before being badly copied by capitalist bandits), and the Red-Star-38s featured jets of course, in many versions:

Without jets, there were also several very special red-star Mustangs: tandem twin-boomers (or triplex-boom, depending on the definition)

You probably know that capitalist scientists (= stupid scientists) thought they had invented the swept wing, just ignoring our red-star aircraft, but, then, they thought they invented the forward swept wing, wrong!: we had invented before the reverse red star:

Your Red Stars are not only a delight and an example of incredible ingenuity of Socialist thinking but they delight me to no end, comrade Tophe!

May your efforts on behalf of the people be crowned with glorious awards of great magnitude, Tovarich!
