    Looks better and more capable than the Harrier. Very impressive. I'd like to see how it handles A2A engagements.

    That is if they have gotten all the bugs out of the engines.


    I read that in war games the f-35 got its clock cleaned by modern Russian planes. The F-22 is being made no more, so what kind of plane are we going to make that will counter Russian/Chinese planes?

    It is impressive and has a great "cool" factor.

    To me it just seems like trapping would still be easier and quicker.
    Be Not Afraid.
