I'm new here, but have been reading for quite some time.
I have watched almost all vids on f-22 and SU's. In my humble opinion, not quite finnishing ground school yet, the f-22 appears to be MORE
manueverable than the HIGHLY modified SU's. The reason for my statement is if you watch the SU vids, after a COBRA the SU points his nose at a
slight angle down to regain airspeed. And at the end of a tight roll the SU rolls, points his nose at the ground becouse his engines are not
powerfull enough at the slow speeds (or so it appears). The F-22 does not. Watch after the tight flip how the F-22 rotates on his axis while staying
horizontal with almost no forward motion. The SU continues his show with forward movement transitioning from each manuever, while the F-22 just
"stops" mid-air then moves on to the next. It seems to me the F-22 has much more control.
