tiny wings, and a small airframe do not necessarily mean fakery, or an inability to perform in combat..
Yes they do. This thing is obviously fake.
“implausible aerodynamics and Hollywood sheen” and was laughably small for a fighter jet.I tend to agree.
The A-4 didn't have small wings at all. The F-104 is from the 50's. Even the F-16 is much bigger than this thing and that is supposed to be a lightweight fighter.
We're talking about 2013. Look at some 5th gen jets (or even 4th gen) and compare. That might be more interesting and relevant.
I think the old Lockheed F-104 Starfighter would be better than this thing. That was one sharp pointy fast jet, not great at turning though because of the small wings.
