For 1: Stealth is fake
Reason: B-2 was detected by the RAF on approach to Farnborough 2004 but still in unfriendly airspace
F-18E superbug detected a F-22 in a one on one engagement BVR

Stealth might work for the aircraft, but what about the pilots?
There may be no plane visible on the enemy radar-operators screen, but how would you explain the on-screen image of two guys in a sitting position at 40,000 feet????

The F-22 has to turn on it's Radar to detect aircraft by doing so it highlights its signature.

I was watching a special that was on the History channel and they were talking about the F117. They interviewed one F117 pilot who bluntly stated the stealth technology doesn't make the plane invisble to radar, it just shrinks its signature. To that effect I think it's still an advantage to have, but it doesn't make you invincible.

This thread is ridicules, stealth is not "fake", it is indeed real and immensely helpful in combat...
