Fist it was high flying U-2 ,then high and fast Sr-71 ,after that stealth F-117 and now B-2.
Sure they spent allot of money to close the gap but russians were always behind the game.
On the other hand the only operational aircraft they could fly over USA and stay alive was?
Maybe supersonic dash Tu-160 ,even that actually outside of conus borders delivering cruise missiles and late in the cold war and in even fewer numbers then the B-2 itself.
USA was invulnerable to Russias mediocre bombers .
only thanks to icbm and cruise missiles was Russia able to keep up with the might of USA ,but in aviation they were inferior.
I don't know whom exactly you're trying to convince, yourself or others?
Judging by that excessive use of emoticons, I'd say your failing both.
Simple truth is that 'the west' (a term coined to describe the elite/politicos in US & Satellite regimes) is in fact better, but NOT at producing weapons, no they are better at PROPAGANDA. The facts don't usually find their way to the public even when declassified (which is usually decades later than the occurrence of events), so we'll have to guesstimate the loses of 'the west' during wars/conflicts.
