Really, using what radar?

The YF-23 would loose to the F/A-22. It is far less capable.

Now if they were to give them equal radars and weapons systems, then a production F-23 would beat a production F/A-22 hands down.

How, exactly, was it better armed? It had the same requirements placed on it as the F/A-22 did.
The same is true for it's range?
The same is true for it's speed?


Do you actually do any research on the subject?

its a medium range fighter the f22 isnt
the f23 is larger aka can hold more fuel,has bigger engines wich means larger speed
also it had a larger munitions capacity than the f22
so not speaking technically its better armed but speaking technically there the same
i thought u agreed ,cool, that the f23 was better than the f22?

Remember the YF-23 will NEVER go into service.

It was an experiment and US liked the F-22 better so YF-23 is ANCIENT HISTORY!


Its like Su-47 Berkut which Russia said that it will not be built cause it deosnt pass all the requirement of what Russia wants for a generation 5 fighter.

Out,
Russian

only 1 YF-23 built,rejected and put in a museum.
factory had removed already all installations required for building the prototype !

so... it is complety out of the question more YF-23 will be

God, where do you get those facts?

First of all the YF-23 actually held less fuel than the F/A-22 does. This was to accomodate all of the test equipment.

Second, it had the same friggin engines. There was a competition between two manufacturers. Both engines were tested on both aircraft and the winner was selected to power the F/A-22.

Third, it had the same weapons carrying ability. It had to meet the same requirement as the then YF-22 had to.

Fourth, I did think the YF-23 was cooler based solely on all other things being equal it was to have a smaller radar cross section and I thought it looked cooler. It also was slightly better for the possibilty of making it carrier capable.

from the ATS forum on this and thier sites

then y does it have a larger range ?

really try looking on the ATS forum proved worng by multiple sources

Third, it had the same weapons carrying ability. It had to meet the same requirement as the then YF-22 had to.

really ? then the fact its bigger that it coud hold larger amounts means what? it has a lot of bouyancy?

In theory, it had longer range. It was never tested for sure.

Second, it had the same friggin engines. There was a competition between two manufacturers. Both engines were tested on both aircraft and the winner was selected to power the F/A-22.

You'll have to point that one out since I have never seen it here before. Were you even alive when all of this was going on?

Third, it had the same weapons carrying ability. It had to meet the same requirement as the then YF-22 had to.

really ? then the fact its bigger that it coud hold larger amounts means what? it has a lot of bouyancy?

Have you actually seen the proposed weapons load out for the YF-23? It carries the same internal load as the YF-22 did.

Fourth, I did think the YF-23 was cooler based solely on all other things being equal it was to have a smaller radar cross section and I thought it looked cooler. It also was slightly better for the possibilty of making it carrier capable.

no i didnt mean it like that cool i meant i thought u agreed wi me ?



I agree that the YF-23 was a better choice, but I don't think you had all of the facts together when you made your call. I am just trying to show you all of the facts so that you can make an informed decision.
