Well they still put Guns are 98% of modern Jet Fighters .
So I think and Hope there is still a place dor Dog fighting skills .
The Korean War was the Glory days of the Jet Gun fighters , My opinion probably the best Dogfighters the U.S. military ever saw were during the Korean War .
I think the Vietnam War had some Gun fighting in it , but we were straight up fighting the Russians in Air to Air jet Dog fights in Korea .

I understand what your saying. Your telling us that stealth or non-stealth, as soon as that missle is launched, the aircraft gives it location away because the missiles themselves broadcast guidance information that the target aircraft is able to detect.
Which is true, no denying that. However. What Zaphod is saying is the stealth variants of the f-22, specifically the f35 have been built to minimize the detected of the launch platform.
I feel that, this is a great time to plug my favorite maneuverable aircraft, the A10 Warthog.
It's a flying tank, with a big gun, how can you not love it?

This A-10 stuff is great and all but its hardly anything to do with "super" maneuverability or members comments that are so circular they will end up in their own back side!
If you want to talk about super maneuverability, without visibly moving, watch the Blue Origin landing and other Space-X rockets too.
