This brings up the hardest thing to compare. The electronics on the f22 and f35. These systems have such versatility in penetrating enemy air defences. They can create false signatures turning one plane into 6. Or they can lag enemy radars changing the time they recieve radar returns meaning the actual aircraft is miles away. It can jam radar buy overloading the sensors. If that isn't enough it can hack into their system and start sending false reports into the air defense system.
They can even play games and alternate scanning between multiple aircraft where the radar operator would continually see a target jump around his screen. And my favorite even jam incoming missiles before the pilot even knows there was a launch. Radar guided will become useless. Infra red will still be dangerous but even that the odds will move to the pilot making it likely he will survive.

Cool post, fitting it's on an article like this. Super pertinent and relevant information, and a great line about retardation to put the cherry on top. I don't post here much as I don't have as near as much to contribute as the regular posters, but I do visit almost daily to learn. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me coming back to the AP.
P.S. I found the sh*thole without looking it up, but just barely...
