The F-22 is a expensive toy the F-15 is the heavyweight boxer.
The F-22 is designed to harass enemy Migs and cause caos
and do the runner. The F-15s take care of the main fighter
and bomber force. It is a shame they are not making more
airframes of the C spec airframes as the non-FBW planes
are bloody near indestructible as you can see. The guy who
designed it was way way way ahead of his time. The F-22
due to its stealth characteristics cannot carry any external
stores otherwise its RCS would increase and then be a target.
I call the F-15 as the 'brick wall' the Migs fly into. Thats a new
one the flying SAM site- well I spose I have heard that one before...
Well when that Flanker pilot is looking on his RWR and see's 4
'slammers' heading towards him and his wingman...well.
time to eject guys.
- aerodynamically impossible. You should see the acrobatics she
can do in battle- classified. A strong airframe makes for big G stunts. The pilot
is the limitation on the F-15 not the plane!
Unstable control surfaces at low speed....bad design....or a crazy pilot or both?
