I really concern about that Raptor was made coz Su-27 and T-50 was made coz Raptor, um.
in the future warfare we can't deny that everyone makes their own toys.
so if the US think they have the best fighter in the world, they should think twice!
Raptor vs. any 4th gen. fighter? oke....! but 5th against 5th?
i don't thik so.
for me, T-50 still more superior than F-22.
the reason of that:
- logicly, Russian will not make newer, worse, and will lose in battle.
- the G limits of T-50 is up to 10-11g
- armament load capacity up to 8 missiles(8 medium range missiles)/(Raptor also carry 8, but the config. is 6 AMRAAMs, and 2 Sidewinder)
- the speed is faster (like mach 2.1, quiet good to avoid Raptor's 9g manuev.)
- plasma clouds tech.,
- ect., say a word
the conclusion is, the Lockheed should upgrade the Raptor into greater block
that's my opinion
