I am currently reading REG Davis book on Aeroflot and in it there are comparisons of the soviet planes to western counterparts. My question is in nearly all cases the Soviet planes have much lower range figures listed than the western counterparts taht are about the same size. Could those Soviet engines be such gas hogs??
