"The Eagle will destroy the F-22 "
That is where you really started to go off the rails.
And do you think it will always remain that way?
The same way battleships were rendered obsolete by the carrier in WWII is the same way all of our carriers can meet the same fate by a weapon...
"and is more maneuverable than the F-16."
For decades I've been led to believe that the F-16 was the most maneuverable of the F-14/15/16/18 .
Now I has a sad.
But can it take the punishment that occurs in the CAS role?
