So, what do you guys think, is the situation really that bad for the Sukhoy or the vid is just another Pro-US BS ?
Don't take any care about a lost moronic 30-40 years old teenager's fantaisies. At this step no one in the world could assert a such thing. The war is not a simulation, a war is combat between men. Intelligence prevailed. Nearly all the simulations implemented failed. Since Alfred Von Shielifen until the last pentagon's planners during their occupation of Iraq. Nothing run, if none simulations made seriously by highly specialized pundits failed, what did U expect of a teeny ? A teeny that just want to sky rocket its youtube channel visitors number.
However there are several serious clues -scientific data obviously- indicating that the SU-35 would be at least equal, depending the skills of the pilot of course.
Apparently F -22 can detect and defeat the Su 35 at BVR
BVR! BVR! BVR! pffffffffffff.....
Contrary to what is swaggered, U can count BVR' success -since the 60's until now- with your fingers, if they really existed one day-existence far to be guaranteed, especially if U add conditions of a so called success - ....As those loudly claim their so-called success are Pentagon, Israel, in fact those who are promoting and producing and marketing them. If U love marketing U can believe them.
During the aerial war of the Vietnam, the gap between US air Force, and VPAF was really significant. The F-4 Phantom II, the F-105 , F-8 Crusader were supersonic, equipped with modern radar, and air-air missiles. US pilots were considered at that time among the best in the world, due to their training. Face of USAF, VPAF could barely deploy an handful of Mig-17 not supersonic, equipped with pitiable radar, and no air-air missiles availlable. The other great problem, for VPAF -and far to be the smallest- was its small number of pilots at the beginning of the conflict in 1965. At this time no one could give a little chance to VPAF. When RollingThunder started in early spring 1965, Pentagon planners with their hollywood simulations
expected North Vietnam will be at knees in few weeks -5 weeks if I recall-. Ho Chi Minh will beg for peace.
U know the next. US lost at least 4.000 aircraft, the Mig-17 downed at least 70 US aircraft including the most modern F-105, F-4 Phantom II, and F-8 Crusader. A gun was added to the F-4 Phantom II resulting tragic failure of US philosophy of combat. Finally US retreated of the Vietnam. And US beg this time for retreat, in their famous "Peace with honor".
Tell me about the gap between SU-35 and F-22 without Western medias usual soap ? The stealth technology does not work against modern army and country -like Russia, China, India-, the BVR even less, just maneuverability and dogfight. In this area pilots on SU-35 do have a small advantage than their US collegues, they could train more than US pilots in their F-22.
Finally Internet is full of idiocies including those incomming from western medias as they origin all from Lockheed. Then don't take credit to all.
