Ruhrfisch comments: This is an interesting article, but it needs a lot of work to meet Wikipedia's standards. Here are some suggestions for improvement.

  • The lead should be an accessible and inviting overview of the whole article. Nothing important should be in the lead only - since it is a summary, it should all be repeated in the body of the article itself but the aircraft carrier seems to only be in the lead.
  • My rule of thumb is to include every header in the lead in some way but the Record section is not in there. Please see WP:LEAD
  • The article needs an image or two - www.aviastar.org/air/russia/sik_s-10.php has some and since the plane was only in use to 1916 I would think there are old wnough to be free to use now.
  • Measurements need to be given in both metric and English units in all cases - the {{convert}} template is useful here
  • Internet refs need URL, title, author if known, publisher and date accessed. {{cite web}} and other cite templates may be helpful. See WP:CITE and WP:V
  • A model article is useful for ideas and examples to follow - F-4 Phantom II is a FA and may be a useful model
  • Not much more to add now as this is so short

Hope this helps. If my comments are useful, please consider peer reviewing an article, especially one at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog (which is how I found this article). I do not watch peer reviews, so if you have questions or comments, please contact me on my talk page. Yours, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:22, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
