im not saying that the USAF have bad planes, but almost always all the new machines are very overated
I wouldn't say the F-22 is over rated as such, it is just the hype has made people to beleive it is something it is not. Plus the lack of testing, it should have more.
is interesting that both planes are from Boeing

A secure "Intra-Flight Datalink (IFDL)" system to allow cooperation between F/A-22s; other NATO fighter and attack aircraft; and an Airborne Warning & Control System (AWACS)" aircraft. It can also download data from reconnaissance platforms. The datalink system provides such capabilities as allowing one F/A-22 to attack a target using the radar system of another F/A-22. The F/A-22 also has a "Joint Tactical Information Display System (JTIDS)" datalink capability; it is unclear if this is associated with the IFDL or if it is a separate datalink system.
