so the gripen is detected at (best theoretical) of 175km`s , even though it is smaller than the eagle , i would happily surmise that it won`t be detected till 120km`s - the same time the gripen picks up the eagle
that and the PWR on the gripen will pick up the active AESA

Bad (even though it has never actually been beaten in the air) F15 = more F22's please.

Another thing, they were not running against F-15E's, they running against F-15C's.

a moot point , as both are armed with AMRAAM , so missile ranges are very similar.
the Su-27's RWR is very basic

West Point, Out.
And I find it funny how people keeping comparing the best the world has to offer (Typhoons, Gripen, Su-30s, etc) to the aircraft that the US are trying to Phase OUT, planes that are 30 years old, (F-15, F-16, etc). Not claiming US superiority in anything, but I do believe my point is valid.
Considering F-15 was designed back in the 70's... It says a lot that it takes a newer aircraft to match or sometimes beat it.
