Right, so instead of discussing history I should of discussed more modern matters; such as the Su-35 and it's larger RCS compared to comparable planes.
So why compare to Rafale and F-18... they are comparable to Mig-29SMT and Mig-35...
The only comparable plane in service right now to the Su-35 would be the F-15C.
The F-15E being comparable to the Su-34.
You keep thinking I'm suggesting anything, I mean what I say, a Gen 4.5 craft will fare better than it's Gen 4 counterpart.
We were talking about comparing LO with Stealth. If you wanted to compare LO with 4th gen then that would be a separate point which you tried to make later.
Nope. The Su-35's frontal RCS is estimated to be 1 m2, I think, with minimal external stores, while the F-15SE's is what it is with it's internal stores.
The proper production Silent Eagle doesn't exist. All they have is a modified F-15E and plans. It is currently vapourware.
I hazard you don't have any real military experience? Thus it is your opinion!
Military service only makes a difference when the subject is the topic of experience.
Serving in the New Zealand Armed forces will tell me squat about secret Russian military programs.
Ha, remaining arrogant is your problem and remaining open minded is mine.
Sorry, but that made me laugh. You are the one that claims Russian pilots getting 100 hours of flight time a year cannot be classed as well trained and you are calling me arrogant and asking me if I served in the military.
Such personal attacks will not make me be your research b!tch either.
