    To perform this manoeuvre yourself follow these steps:
    1. Fly in a straight line at about 1000kmh
    2. Slam the brakes till you are travelling at about 650kmh
    3. Pitch up 100% for about a full second (whilst still holding the brakes)
    4. Release the brakes, and go full throttle
    5. Pitch your nose back up to recover from the stall
    6. Kill them capitalist pigs!

    Hey, sorry to burst your bubble but that's not actually a pugachev's cobra, nor has it been performed anywhere near correct. While it looks like one, all you've done is pitch up and climb, then dive down again. You can easily achieve a pugachev's cobra in game. to properly perform a pugachevs cobra, you should be at moderate speeds, and also no air brakes should be used. What occurs is a very sudden nose up, this turns the whole aircraft into an air-brake reducing speed. HOWEVER, no altitude should be gained. if you look closely, your aircraft gains a few hundred feet in height while also using air brakes and starting from considerable speed. in real life, your pilot just blacked out and the wings have been ripped off. to do this for real in game, either grab the fly by wire mod or move your center of mass closer to your center of lift and remove any gyros u have. then CAREFULLY pull up for a brief moment, the instability should pull your nose to abt 90 degress, then pitch down again and resume level flight. with good balance and practice along with fine-tuning speed, you've performs a proper pugachev's cobra.

    @typeZERO I've seen some other builds that could do it but most of them had thrust vectoring, which makes performing a cobra quite easy.

    Also I Noticed Something and its also a Question at the same time. There are Many Builds that has Artificial Airbrakes (Fuselage Ones), Yet None of them can Properly Perform the Cobra. The Pigpen However has 4 IN GAME Airbreaks and It Performs the Cobra TOO BEAUTIFULLY.
    .
    So Is it Possible that the Algorithm for Cobra Maneuver is:
    If (PlaneSpeed =<499mph && PlaneAirbrakePart = True) { Perform Cobra Maneuver} ?

    BTW, Even though it was the Iconic Su-27 series that performed the Cobra in public display, it was the Swedish that was the first to Perform this but just in training.

    (Taken from Wiki:
    However, decades prior to this, Swedish pilots in the Saab J35 Draken performed a visually similar maneuver as a training routine while learning how to best recover from a so-called "super stall", which had plagued the early years of that aircraft. The Swedish name for the maneuver was ”kort parad”.)
