And also,, I have disagreed with Sukhoi on some technical things. (although like today, he usually posts with little or no commentary) And he always answers back with a thoughtful, technical, reasoned point. And never attacking America.
Thats too bad if you think being a cheerleader for that flying moonpig, a monument to political district based procurement is being patriotic.
Except for stealth, which in 10 years will be defeated by extreme computer based improvements in radar, the F-35 is much less capable than the F-16 or F-15.
The thing is a joke.

The F-16 is one of the best fighters anyone has ever created and put into the field. It's simply an awesome machine.

Compared to the F-16, the F-35 has a greater payload and a greater combat radius on internal fuel than the F-16, along with greater stealth, more power, vastly improved electronics and pilot situational awareness.

The F-16 is faster.

Stealth can already be defeated by low band search RADAR datalinked to a fire control transceiver.

That would be a correct assessment of most, if not all, of your posts on all things aviation related.
