    The century series as a role model of good development practise, NOW I have seen everything. No No No

    Of all them the only real successful one was... the F-4.

    F-100 was obsolete in less time it got to be developed, F-101 from the very beginning , F-102 was an F-106 without area ruling, F-104 began to be,I wouldn't say , effective but almost to have a sense only when Germans and Italian respectively went to correct the ludicrous operative role USAF gave them first, F-105 was nicknamed the "THUD", guess why? and the F-106 was a Century series passed trough a second phase of development i.e. it was the exact contrary to what the article called for...

    Luftwaffe dubbed the Starfighter the flying coffin because they lost so many qualified/experienced pilots

    Which explains why the Luftwaffe was more than willing to let go of purchasing Lockheed F-35's (let alone VTOL variants).

    Paralay is the best fucking troll out there man Laughing Laughing Laughing It took me awhile to get the joke, and I started laughing even more like an idiot when the bottom user did not know that Paralay was fucking around made it even more funny. https://www.f-16.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=57828&p=478963#p478963 I will share the screenshots to be sure they don't get deleted later.

    Those that dont get the Joke he basically made his own 6th gen Russian design but used it with 1st stage Su-57 engines to go mock the **** out of the NGADs engine performance. We know that the Su-57 1st stage engines is 3,500kms max range and 4,500kms with fuel tanks and the thrust parameters look the same on wikipedia. The 4th photos is for laughs because what Paralay posted was a joke that went over users head and apparently, he missed it. Over 80 users were looking at the thread and no one after the user hkultala posted so far for quite some time. I think they were able to at least process the joke. I am in tears because it is like a dead silence, and I am wondering if anyone will break the ice or move along with the topic of their thread.

    Would the PAK-DP not qualify as a 6th generation "fighter" by the standards the americans have set?

    more than likely a 7th gen based on NGAD being classified as 6 with those specs.
