That's the DERA study, as we all know it should be taken with a grain of salt. It was done a long time ago and the weaponry, specs, and avionics/sensors of the fighters involved have changed dramatically. The reason the F-35 is not on there is because it was done before the JSF program, not because the F-35 does not have BVR capability.
