If I'm reading your post right your saying why go to war as the tech is so expensive that we can't afford to lose it? If thats the case your referring to Titanology in which you need your aircraft to be able to fight out numbered in most cases and be able to take on a high number of boogies. Trust me the USAF is training for those cases as they KNOW the F-22 will almost always be in that situation.

Depends on the role and combined capability. In some instances the avionics found on the F-35 may be overall more capable but the F-22 was specifically designed for one role, air superiority. As such in a specific scenario and circumstance the Raptor (and its avionics) will over you greater advantage than the F-35. And yes, there are a significant number of safeguards built into the F-35, they are not present in the F-22.

Just saw something in the RAND brief...

www.defenseindustrydaily.com...


U.S. has recorded ten AIM-120 kills

Four not Beyond Visual Range

Fired 13 missiles to achieve 6 BVR kills Pk = 0.46*


So basically, non-BVR kills are misses, according to RAND.
Idiots... Assuming all 3 misses were BVR, that is 6 kills, 3 misses.... Pk = 0.67*. What if multiple missiles were fired at a single target? Do they constitute as misses?

From the same page...

None of these likely to apply to fight with Chinese FLANKERS


LMAO!!! Quiet right!
