#f35 vs #f22 reopened production line
it is a very good plane and its advantage over the f35 is clearly that its specialised for air superiority. sth tehy did not wanna do wiht the f35. so the f35 needs to specialise in electronic warfare and hedge subsonic giant fans for a quick regain energy movement concept best wiht thrust vector nozzzles. the f22 wiht its specialisatin in air to air is probably a better airfighter. the key is can the us afford to build two? i would make the f35 more capable in airwar and check if the updated f22 offers that much mroe of an advantage over an updated f35. the cost overrun will make it ATLEAST as expensive as the f35 per unit price again. knowing the airframe is not enough- but htat depends on the depth of hte ugprades. sero bullshit sero tolerance with the capabilities. the f35 specialised on electronic warfare and its quick regain energy concept that worse than the specialised air to air f22 upgrade? if yes, the gap matters consider restart. i doubt hte advantage is that noticable that u restart hmmmmmmmm. not wanting an air to air specialised plane but a multirole plane was the reason for hte f35. now the best : noone understands what the engineers have done, to make a vtol comparable to modern specialised air to air jets. oh heck . GROWLER each f35, hedge the giant fans to quickly regain energy (usually perfect for thrust vectoring), and rahter enhance stealth than not. in other words give it the better stealth plates if ucan – udont need an f22 for that. and if the result is despite vtol not that much worse than an f22 cancel the restarted production. if the result is alot worse then restart
i question affordability of two of these now. that will seriously harm numbers. its no easy matter if the retrofit is so much more advantageous that its worth it. if it is sero bullshit then reopen. if its not that much additional benefit dont. but in any way u better growler each #f35 full growler suit make it hte most devious badass bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbastardish electronic warfare plane ever, hedge its quick regain energy giant shovels in engine – which is PERFECT forthrust vectoring usually (are those nozzles really?not 3d thurst movale?) and if you have the choice between more stealth or less pick MORE stealth- dont even consider less pick MORE – ie paving the new f22 wiht those plates or hte f35 shouldnt make a difference.
in any way either jet needs a mach8 scramjet. mach8 60miles. mach7 40 miles is already mediocre abit. this is important to defeat counter weapons and halve initiative time etc.
