No the Blackbird is a wanna be to the Raptor. The F-22 makes the Blackbird look like Barbra Walters.

Getting back to the F-117 over Kosovo, perhaps you can tell me how a hole in the right wing (I believe) was found to match the same caliber as an AA round and not corellated to a missile diameter?

I wouldn't know, again I was offering up what someone else said so I am not prepared to back it up with facts as I usually am with my other posts.


No matter if the plane flew the same route or not. The result is the same. Anyway the F-117 is not a good plane. The B-2 is a good one, but the B-2 is a death machine. It's a bomber, not fighter. Tell me how many women, childern, elders, the B-2 kill ? So I cant like the B-2.

Uhh you have seen pics of the YF-12, right?

There are a few things that stick out like the nose, ventral fins, etc.

I think that adding that radar made it look stranger than it already did.

Not like the one that the YF-12 had. Remember the YF-12 was designed to be an interceptor and needed the radar to pick up contacts at long range.

bit of a useless stealth plane then if u can see it
still both look sameish
and both look nice just get 2 of each parked out in the driveway/street

The F-117 has always been a strike fighter, not a multirole one. It was never intended for interception or air to air combat. It was a bomber given F designation so fighter pilots wouldn't be p*d off about being transfered to a bomber squadron. The Nighthawk is really a pure bomber, not a fighter.

BTW; Rafale looks rather like a Typhoon anyway. F-22 & Typhoon are the most advanced fighters today, and would probably beat the Rafale in air to air combat.

The yf-12a was not a stealth plane. It was a 2000mph interceptor withlong range Falcon air to air missiles housed in internal bays. It had a 2nd person inside, a wepons systems operator, as opposed to the single seat reconnaisance Sr-71. The YF-12a had radar to pivck up targets up to 300 miles away, wheras the SR-71 was for photo reconnaisance. This is why it has the extra sticky out bits.

I think all this arguing about which plane is better is pretty silly. By only looking at there stats, it's not going to tell you which jet is really better. The only way we'll really find out is if they go into combat with eachother.

RAFAELE & EUROFIGHTER sucks like hell because the concept is OUTDATED ! a waste of good taxpayersmoney for kinda pieces of expensive junk !

as in the song:

your out of time baby !

oh yeah ?
then y does the f22 version of super cruise cost 3 times as much as the EF's does ? and dont say its about stealth cause it aint.
any way it beats any other fighters well in its league of course

do you compare the F-22 to the EUROFIGHTER/RAFAELE ?

come on ! the F-22 is having the latest technology but the EF/R is plenty steps behind it !
the EF/R is a plane that would have scored in 1975 !
kinda sister M.D. MIRAGE III & V !

see how easy the F-22 handles and then look at the flying like a "garbagetruck" of the EF/R...

exscuse me?
its more agile than most aircraft
its designed to pull off high g manovuers at supersonic speeds something the f22 isnt
and im comparing the engines not the firepower or class
and for 1975 ha what a load of bull
its exstremly agile better than any f 15 in my eyes
oh and if u didnt notice something the f22 has been around for 14 years so dont start any of ur ****
