These Are The Situations On Why An F-15 Is Better Than An F-22 Or An F-35

Alex Lockie, Business Insider: Here's when an F-15 is better than an F-22 or an F-35

In a recent interview with Business Insider, Justin Bronk, a research fellow specializing in combat airpower at the Royal United Services Institute, revealed why the F-15, originally introduced four decades ago, is still more useful than either the F-22 or the F-35 in certain situations.

The F-15 is a traditional air-superiority fighter of the fourth generation. It's big, fast, agile, and carriers lots of weapons under the wing where everyone can see them. For that last reason, it's terrible at stealth, but the other side of the coin is that it's perfect for intercepting enemy aircraft.

Speed, maneuverability and altitude are the pilots' friend. The F-22/35 have none of these. As you state in the previous post, a weakness will be found to defeat or blunt stealth. Then those gen5 pigs will just be a liability.

Lol you guys are stupid to think an f-15 is better than an Fit-22 an FA-18super hornet is not even better than an Fit-22 but the hornet is still in are fleet today on air craft carriers they use to house F-15 on board but as we all know the hornet out dose an F-15 we Still fly F-15s in asia but any ways if they was remotely better than an Fit-22 then they would still be on deck to this day get real the only reason are F-22s are not on deck of super carriers have nothing to do with capabilities it's because we only made 120+ of them than dropped it because the F-35 is a 3 type base stealth fighter and more advanced you will see are carriers have them on board soon and they will dominate any US craft in are arson

>>This is the world that created the F-35. When you see it from their perspective—a money-raising scheme, nothing else—it makes sense. If you keep trying to see it as something related to actually defending America, you’ll find that little tendrils of smoke start coming out of your ears.

It helps sometimes to see how this sort of scam worked in other societies . . . and they don’t come much other-er than Albania (Nice segue, huh?). If you want to understand the F-35, take a look at Albania’s bunkers. You can’t avoid looking at them around here (I’m killing these segues!).

Here in Europe’s poorest country, a supposedly crazy Stalinist ruling clique built more than 700,000 concrete bunkers—one for every four people in the country. You see them everywhere, half-submerged in ponds, popping up in farm fields. The Albanians call them “mushrooms,” but to me they look like Paris urinals that got pushed into the ground. Like the F-35, they were supposedly necessary for national defense. But the first thing you realize when you see them is that they would have been totally useless in combat. Albanians do well in mobile warfare, and have a long tradition of using mountain ambushes against invaders. The very worst thing they could do against bigger, better-armed invaders would be to hole up in death traps like these bunkers, with their little domes announcing, “Here I am! Come and kill me!”

I’d heard about these things, but you know—you get so much Western propaganda against Commie states that I half-expected to be impressed, to find that the bunkers were actually feats of military engineering. Nope. They’re shockingly useless. They shout their uselessness at you. In fact, that’s the point.<<
