Now that one was one cool song. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I tried to translate song "yak istrebitel". I'm not translator and sorry for my english but it can give u meaning of this song:
-------------------------------------------
YAK ISTREBITEL

I am ¿Yak¿, the Fighter. My engine rings,
The sky is my home,
And man who sits in me
Thinks that he is fighter.

In this combat I shot down ¿Junkers¿ -
I made with him all I wanted.
And man who sits in me
Has bothered me much.

I got through holes in last combat,
Mechanic repaired me.
And man who sits in me
Forces me to go into stall.

A bomb from bomber brings
Death for aerodrome.
But it seems that stabilizer sings:
¿Peace for your home¿.

Now ¿Messerschmitt¿ goes to my back,
I will go away, I¿m tired because of wounds.
But I see that man who sits in me has decided
To collide .{here was russian word ¿taran¿, it was when flyer intentionally led plane on enemy)

What is he doing? Now it is exploding!!!
But I will not fire on sand,
I go out from diving
Contrary to all interdictions and speeds.

I am commander and on my back¿
****! Where is my wingman?
He has smoked, has noded and
Has sung:¿Peace for your home!¿

And man who sits in my head
Now alone and he is in hard situation.
He has confused me
And started to dive after loop.

He is pulling on and overloads became twice larger.
Heh, what the flyer-ace!
But I obey again
And this is in the last time!

I swear that I will obedient anymore,
It¿s better to lay on the ground.
Does he hear how my pulse rages?!!!
Gasoline,my blood, is on zero mark!

The patience of the machine has a limit,
And it¿s its time.
And suddenly man who sat in me
Sticked with his face into glass.

He is killed! At last I fly free and
Burn my last forces.
But what is it? I¿m diving
And can¿t fly up!!!

It¿s annoyingly that I did not many things,
But let another one has good luck.
It has turned out so I sung too:
¿Peace for your home¿!!!

Thanks ReDeeIVIeR, I found this text here about the Yak song/movie:

http://rkkaww2.armchairgeneral.com/Multimedia/afterww2.htm#Yak

€œI am a Yak-fighter plane€

Vladimir Vysotskii is a legendary Soviet singer of 70th. He was very popular in USSR, he was a real
people favourite. When he died in 1980 many thousands of the ordinary Soviet people went to
attend a funeral.

All the texts of Vysotskii€s songs are written by himself.

This of his songs is about a fighter plane. Vysotskii could to show the character and the stress
of an aerial combat.

************************************************** ******************************************

€œI am a Yak-fighter plane€

(Translated by Andrey)

I am a Yak-fighter plane, my engine is ringing,
The sky is my home!
But the guy who sits inside of me
Supposes that he is a fighter.

I shot down a €œJunkers€ [1] in this combat,
I did with him everything what I wanted.
But the guy who sits inside of me
Bored me pretty!

I was shot through in the last combat,
And a mechanic sewed over the tear
But the guy who sits inside of me
Again forces me to spin

A bomb from a bomber carries
A death to an airfield,
But it looks like a stabilizer is singing:
€œP-e-a-c-e [2] to your home€[3]

Here a €œMessershmitt€ [4] approaches to me from the rear,
And I want to go away as I am tired from wounds!
But I see that the guy who sits inside of me
Decided to make a ram attack!

What he is doing! €" Here an explosion will be! €"
But it is not my turn to burn on a sand -
Exceeding all the prohibitions and speed limits,
I came out from the diving!

I am a leading plane and behind of me - the devil take it! €"
Where is he, my second wingman?
Oh, here he is, he began to smoke and to sing:
€œP-e-a-c-e to your home€

And the guy who sits inside of my skull
Stayed alone and got into a mess!
But he misled me and began to dive
Right after the coming out from the €œdeath loop€[5] !

He pulls the control column toward himself and overloads are twice than usual ones -
Eh, how can he suppose that he is a pilot-ace!
But I must to obey again
And it is the last time when I do it!

I shall be obedient no more, I swear in it, €"
It is better to lie on a land!
Isn€t he hearing how my pulse is being furious €"
The indicator of gasoline, of my blood shows a zero!

There is the limit of the patience of a machine
And my patience gave way!
But suddenly the guy who sits inside of me
Poked himself into the frontal glass by his face!

He is killed. Oh! At last! I am flying without luggage,
I am spending my last forces!
But what is happening? What is it? €" I came into a deep diving
And I in no way can come out from this diving!

It is a pity that I had time to do myself only few things
But let another will be luckier!
It turned out that I also singed in the end:
€œP-e-a-c-e to your home€

€œPeace to your home€


Remarks of Andrey:
[1] - €œJunkers€ - the Russian nickname of German Ju87 and Ju88 bombers
[2] €" the Russian €œmir€ equals to the English €œpeace€. Vysotskii sings €œM-i-i-i-r€ and it sounds
like the sound of an engine which is working with the extreme efforts.
[3] - €œPeace to your home€ is the translation of the Eastern welcome €œSaliam aleikum€, the
Muslims who lived in USSR spoke this phrase when they met one to another. Vysotskii used
the Russian translation of this phrase and it sounds very well, I myself suppose that it
emphasizes that the Soviet pilots were peaceful guys who want to live in a peace but must to fight.
[4] - €œMessershmitt€ €" the Russian nickname of a German Bf109 fighter
[5] - €œdeath loop€ €" a figure of the aerobatics

************************************************** ******************************************

The Russian version (translit):

"Ia - Yak-istrebitel'"

Ia - Iak-istrebitel', motor moi zvenit,
Nebo €" moia obitel'!
No tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
Schitaet, chto on istrebitel'.

V etom boiu mnoiu "iunkers" sbit,
Ia sdelal s nim, chto khotel.
A tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
Izriadno mne nadoel!

Ia v proshlom boiu navylet pro****,
Menia mekhanik zashtopal.
A tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
Opiat' zastavliaet v shtopor.

Iz bombardirovshchika bomba nesiot
Smer' aerodromu,
A kazhetsia, stabilizator poiot:
- Mi-i-ir Vashemu domu.

Vot szadi zakhodit ko mne "messer****t" -
Uidu €" ia ustal ot ran!
No tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
Ia vizhu, reshil na taran!

Chto delaet on - vot seichas budet vzryv!
No mne ne goret' na peske -
Zaprety i skorosti vse perekryv,
Ia vykhozhu iz pike.

Ia glavnyi, a szadi, nu chtob ia sgorel,
Gde zhe on, moi vedomyi?
Vot on zadymilsia, kivnul i zapel:
- Mi-i-ir Vashemu domu.

I tot, kotoryi v moem cherepke,
Ostalsia odin i vlip!
Menia v zabluzhdenie on vviol -
I v pike - priamo iz miortvoi petli!

On rviot na sebia i nagruzki vdvoine -
Ekh, tozhe mne, liotchik-as!
No snova prikhoditsia slushat'sia mne
I eto v poslednii raz!

Ia bol'she ne budu pokornym, klianus', -
Uzh luchshe lezhat' na zemle!
Nu chto zh on, ne sly****, kak besitsia pul's -
Benzin, moia krov', na nule!

Terpeniiu mashiny byvaet predel,
I vremia ego isteklo!
I tot, kotoryi vo mne sidel,
Vdrug tknulsia litsom v steklo!

Ubit, nakonets-to, lechu nalegke -
Poslednie sily zhgu!
No chto eto, chto - ia v glubokom pike
I vyiti nikak ne mogu!

Dosadno, chto sam ia nemnogo uspel,
No pust' poveziot drugomu!
Vykhodit, i ia naposledok spel:
- Mi-i-ir Vashemu domu.

- Mir Vashemu domu.

Yaks suck.

That song is more trippy and nonsensical than Bike by Pink Floyd.

ReDeeIVIeR
08-03-2005, 10:31 PM
(To L.Starosta)=&gt;
It's only your opinion. But I want say:
1) "Yaks sucks" - what it means? sucks like machine in Il-2? You have opinion about this plane only seeing a game? Did u read books, memoirs, technical reviews? Or do u hate all russian?
2)"nonsensical"? It's great song! When I hear this song it clings for soul! What means "nonsensical"? Singer enclosed in this song his soul!

LStarosta
08-03-2005, 10:52 PM
It clings to the soul like the Soviet anthem my folks were forced to listen to.

Catchy tune, but the lyrics make no sense. (At least the translation.) The lyrics seem to be trippier than the average Pink Floyd song. Come to think of it, Pink Floyd songs make sense, actually. Bad comparison, I guess.



In Poland, we made a joke out of the Soviet anthem:

A ch*j nam swoboda,
Sowieckiego naroda,
Gdy nie ma co palic,
I nie ma co pic!

I'm sure you can figure out what that means.
I'm sure Kocur knows the rest of the words. He seems to be an older and more educated fellow in these matters http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Of course, I am joking, please do not take me seriously unless I say I'm being serious.


And by "Yaks Suck" I mean that I simply do not like the aircraft. Compared to it's contemporaries, I believe it's a poor aircraft, whose success depended largely on the numbers with which it could be produced. Fortunately for Yak fans, things such as reliability or lack thereof are not modelled in the sim.

And don't worry about nationalistic bias. My countrymen flew Yaks alongside your countrymen.

L.Starosta, I understood everything - you are Pole. It seems to me that almost all poles hate Russia. I know history well and I know history of russian-polish struggle. I mean wars of medieval, struggle ukranian people against Poland, polish intervention in Russia in XVII century, polish revolts against Russian Empire, Russian-polish war in 1920s, russian-german occupation of Poland and 40 years of soviet power in eastern europe. I don't think bad about Poles, my grandgrandfather was Pole, his surname is Kalinetski.
And I translated your verse, polish language is similar to russian. But nowadays there isn't USSR and don't understand why u remember about that again? It's like if I say germans: U r sucks, because Germany attacked USSR in 1941!

Thanks for the songs, I dowloaded them all.
Unfortunately I don't know Russian, I tried to search but did not find anything, surely I was doing something wrong.

I wonder if you can search for me a song called "Polyushka-polye" (song of the plains) which is one of the best Russian patrioctic songs I have ever heard.

Hi all.

Just like to coment on the somewhat rasist coments that were thrown at the deeply respeced by me (and most bulgarians) russians.
These things have happened long ago and you should not be rasist to each other on the basis of that (or anything else). It does not mean you should forget but not show agression.
If you wnat to discuss history go to a forum of that nature!

That song, Polyushka Polye, it was redone by a vocalist named Origa. It's rather good if anyone cares to take a listen. It is a bonus track on the album "Ein". I think she redid alot of other old russian songs as well as that one.
