The F-22 Raptor Is Still Awesome
War Is Boring

If you paid attention you would have noticed that something is amiss.

  1. Missiles will be detected. That is why aircraft have missile warning systems. All Russian aircraft have DRFM jammers which are likely to severely reduce the efficiency of the AMRAAM missiles. And they may have other tricks.
  2. The F-22 radar will be detected by any modern EW kit. If it does not, it is practically unsellable.

When someone in an F-22 is telling you that they sneak up on someone and don’t need missiles, you know that something is wrong. The F-35 might pull that off if it is not using the radar, but never ever an F-22.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
