    Wow…. it is very interesting. Thanks for this information buddy.

    I disagree with the list…
    First, F-22 has already been manufactured and T-50/FGFA/PAK-FA is still in development. T-50 is faster and more maneuverable than F-22 but bit weaker in stealth due to its better vector thrust which couldn’t be compromised for stealth. That alone should cancel out the advantages of F-22 over other fighters.

    Secondly, F-35 was a big failure for US and a waste of money. Sure, specs on paper are good but overall the plane has been far less usable if we believe the Americans complaining about it. But, I can’t say about it’s ranking here as on paper it is superior and VTOL alone is biggest advantage in Battlefield.

    Lastly, just a general question… I always wonder why do all the stealth planes look the same?

    • Ashis Kumar says:

      Stealth Plains are designed to deceive radar.
      Since all radars work in the same basic way, of broadcasting radio waves & catching the wave that bounces back. Stealth plains evolved to minimize the ‘bounce back’ of waves to the radar. Hence the shape & looks.

      • B_Justa says:

        But the shape is such that the bounce back is reflected to another direction at a particular angle. And coating and paint on surface is supposedly partially radio wave absorbing.
        But when the large flat parts of the stealth planes, which are there in every stealth plane except F-117 except it’s base, are directly perpendicular to the incident wave or somewhere near to that angle, it’s reflected back and it becomes a lot easier to detect a stealth plane.
        Such results were also shown by Russian simulations.

        What I meant was that knowing this design flaw in F-22 and F-35 others took a similar design approach, big flat top and bottom, all stealth planes look the same and will have similar issues.
        So, the only use of stealth is to move in such a path which ensures the maximum angle of reflection. So in a scenario where multiple radars in a 3D space are being used, stealth tech of today is of no use.
