In a dogfight between the F-22 and the F-35, which would win?

The F-35 and F-22 were designed for different missions. The truth is that the F-35 was never meant to compete with the F-22 as an air superiority fighter....

Can the F-35 dogfight?

Surprisingly, the F-35 lacks the ability to engage in dogfighting, which is essential for any fighter plane. In practice air combat, test pilots say the F-35 is "significantly inferior" to the 40-year-old F-15 fighter plane. The F-35 was unable to maneuver or rise quickly enough to attack an adversary jet or avoid enemy gunfire.

The F-35's designers did add some anti-dogfighting capabilities. It can fire its 30mm cannon in bursts from beyond visual range (BVR), and it has a data link that allows it to communicate its position with other F-35s flying over the battlefield. But these features are not set up for real combat; they were added after the program started so the F-35 would be able to drop bombs and shoot at ground targets.

In conclusion, yes, the F-35 can fight but it's not designed to do so. It's intended to be used as a multirole fighter capable of taking on all opponents both large and small.

What’s better, F-22 or F-35?

In its internal armament bays, the F-22 can carry eight air-to-air missiles or two 1,000-pound bombs and two air-to-air missiles. The F-35 can carry 18,000 pounds of missiles and bombs both within and externally. While the F-22 is superior in dogfighting, the F-35 has significantly superior electronics. Both planes are capable of reaching speeds over 400 miles an hour.

The F-22 was designed by Lockheed Martin to replace the F-16 for the United States Air Force (USAF). Development began in 1991 and it was introduced into service in 1997. About 200 F-22s have been built so far. The F-35 is a joint project of Lockheed Martin and other partners including Britain's BAE Systems and Sweden's Saab. It is expected to enter service around 2020.

Both the F-22 and F-35 are fifth generation fighters that incorporate state-of-the-art technology including fly-by-wire controls, fuel cells, and electric motors. They are also the first US fighter jets to be manufactured in the United States since the F-102 Delta Dagger in 1956.

However, the F-22 has one significant advantage over the F-35: it can use its weapons while flying at very high speeds against relatively slow-moving targets such as enemy aircraft. This is called "superior speed/range performance". The F-35 cannot do this because its sensors would fail at high speeds.

What is better, f22 or f15?

The F-15 has a substantially greater combat range than the F-22, more than double that of the F-22. Aside from the enhanced range, the F-15 has a far quicker cruising speed than the F-22, despite the fact that the F-15 was built for this purpose. The F-22 has superior turn rates to the F-15 but this advantage is offset by the weight of the F-22.

The F-15 can carry more weapons and have a larger fuel tank than the F-22. It also uses older technology air-to-air missiles which require reloading between targets while the Raptor carries guided bombs that can be fired automatically without a pilot intervening.

However, the F-22's stealth capabilities mean that it is hard to see on radar, and so opponents don't know where it is until it opens fire. This gives the F-22 an advantage in aerial battles because they cannot be shot down before firing their missiles. The F-22 has no trouble shooting down other aircraft either as long as they are within its flight envelope. If you get too close or too far away, the F-22 will not be able to shoot you down.

Overall, the F-15 is a better fighter because it has more range and can carry more weapons. However, the F-22 is superior when it comes to stealth and maneuverability so it is hard to beat with straight out firepower.

Is the F-35 better than the Harrier?

In his opinion, although accomplishing the same thing (landing vertically), the F-35 and the Harrier are "virtually incomparable" in terms of flying. "The F-35's design concept is "minimal effort," but the Harrier is a struggle to fly." He also says that the F-35 has been criticized for its weight more than 10,000 lb (4,540 kg) and its cost (over $100 million each), but it is believed to be worth it because it can carry out all its missions.

Which is more stealthy, the F-35 or the F-22?

In terms of stray electronic noise reduction, communication, and aspect-dependent IR signature, the F-35 is more stealthy. They have identical rear-aspect IR signatures at half throttle, while the F-22 is less covert at full AB. The F-35 is also more stealthy when searching for long-range targets, tracking them, and queuing radar missiles. It has larger antennas that give it a wider radar beam and thus better range performance. The F-22's smaller size allows it to be more agile in flight but lowers its detection range.

The F-35 has active electronically scanned array (AESA) antennas that can change direction up to 90 degrees quickly, allowing it to track multiple targets simultaneously. This improves the pilot's ability to fight off enemy aircraft. The F-22 does not have this feature but uses dual-mode sensors consisting of traditional mechanically scanned arrays as well as digital cameras. These can see through clouds and other atmospheric conditions such as rain or snow but are not capable of detecting targets beyond about 15 miles.

Both the F-35 and F-22 use stealth technology to reduce their presence on radar screens. This includes shaping the body of the plane and creating surfaces with random reflectivity patterns, which confuse radars about what is where until you move or turn your plane. By contrast, conventional jet fighters have smooth, reflective surfaces that stand out on radar.

Stealth technology has advanced over the years and today's planes are much harder to detect on radar.
