Well Yes, if you were the russian pilots.
Then even stinky could shoot down all of you.
But now if Kirill or Petukhov were piloting the russian jets
and you were piloting the best US jet, they would surely
shut you down. You would be truly terminal.

Not over Russia, it won't!



But a US jet wouldn’t even reach Russia because of the Electromagnetic Pulse
Nuclear weapons tend to generate!



So how good a slingshot you have is totally irrelevant when you got grenades
for instance!

Tend to generate? Which nukes generate a electromagnetic pulse and which
ones do not?
Are they color coded?

Well...it's been a romp for US jets pretty much always.

Just look at the record of Russki jets in the first Gulf War, the Balkans,
Libya and Israel vs. Syria in the Bekaa valley.

This should give you some idea why jets like the Gripen, Eurofighter and
Rafale can seem to sell for diddly. In the past 10 years, they've probably
sold for export 20 aircraft between the three of them. Germany came real
close to bailing out of the Eurofighter program. If it wasn't for India,
Russia wouldn't sell anything either.

Well now all 3 are relatively new aircraft and only the Rafale is
likely to be offered to Syria, Iraq, Libya or Iran

Saab have sold around 40 Gripen to SA and Hungary, and are
negotiating with the Brazilians. I rather doubt that they would sell
to Israel at all.

As for Eurofighter the current no of orders is more than double that
for F-22 at UK 250, Italy 130, Germany 130 and Spain 90
with export orders from Austria and interest from Singapore


Germany came real
close to bailing out of the Eurofighter program. If it wasn't for India,
Russia wouldn't sell anything either.


This is a silly thing to say when you consider the large number of nations
operating Sukhoi and Mig aircraft.

The quality of the pilot is much more important than the quality
of the fighter. The nature of the engagement is also more important
than the quality of the fighter. It may well make sense to say that
one fighter is better than another, but quantifying it with
expected loss ratios is pointless.
