Hmm 1984 we were test flying stealth aircraft we will give you the hovering thing hahahahaha
Okay I am not saying your comments are ignorant BUT 1. kick-assness enough said your an honor to your country.2. Typhoons could still in a dogfight.Still what?get shot down by A plane its radar can not pick up?3. What The blank is a missily?
I`m pretty sure the same effect could be produced firing a long range ballistic missile
as i said before jets are just for showing off and for people like you to beat the bishop over
Top Gun Rules
Ah yes. I love being American.
Huh? Oh, And the jet or whatever was also kind of neat.
Consider that what we REALLY have is still secret, that we spend more on our military than the next 14 Counties COMBINED, and you just KNOW that we have the baddest toys.
And lastly, consider that about every 10 years weapons and military materiel get old and need replacing, and the US gets involved in major military operations about once every 10 years....just putting that out there.
And its flown by Europeans ;)
Just poking fun guys no hard feelings!
When the Chinese threaten, we`ve got your back, just like we saved your asses in WWI, WWII, helped the french in Vietnam (thanks for that one), and currently are cleaning up the post-colonial mess the brits left in the middle east. No hard feelings though, someday we`ll sell you our F-22`s, BUT WE ONLY TAKE CANADIAN DOLLARS NOW.
To be clear, in a combat zone, NO aircraft would EVER fly like the plane is this video - they just do that for airshows to show off. Imagine doing that with missles about, the prime threat to fighters today.
BTW, though equiped with cannons, todays fighters would rather flee and re-arm before close dog fighting.
2) Typhoon has a lower supercruise speed of mach ~1.2, compared to ~1.7 for F-22. Max speed is lower too.
3) Typhoon is NOT STEALTH. The front cross section has "stealth features," but from the side its as bright as anything else on radar. F-22 is FULLY STEALTH, and currently has better radar.
No doubt the Typhoon is a capable machine, formidable on any battlefield.
kairobert:"Russia is trying to become a superpower again lol. Its a fact."
Anyway, The red smoke is a common sight at airshows for the oohs and aahs factor. And the whole falling-out-of-the-sky thing is a demonstration of it`s increcible handling ability; the Flanker series can fly in ways which would make most other jets stall out and enter a spin. It`s cobra manuver is a prime example.
But most of the manuvers in that video are, in my opinion, usless. Not to say that dogfighting is dead or anything; it still has it`s place. But most fighting is done at long range and high speed nowadays. It`s all part of the "omfg cobra ownz raptor!!!!1" argument which is pissed by fanboys all over aviation forums.
In my opinion, the Flanker may be able to go toe to toe (and possibly even win) with the F-22 and the Typhoon in a one on one furball, but it`s comparatively large RCS would give it a huge disadvantage over the NATO jets. The F-22 and Typhoon would spot it miles away.
It takes over a week for a ship to get from Tacoma harbor to the Middle East. Who the hell wants to wait a day for a fleet reposition when you can get an airstrike in an hour? Also, planes are a whole hell of a lot cheaper than missle ships.
ooooohhhhh baby, look at the wings!!!! HUBA HUBA
Que flaming from a bunch of yanks who touch themselves over jets :)
I lol`d.. you really think they would sacrify two AA missiles or Countermeasures devices to lauch smoke at the ennemy so they can`t see you ? xD
The EF wasn`t designed to beat the F-22, hence why many European countries want to buy the more expensive F-22 (although it isn`t being exported)."
It was a pretty damn good argument, you didn`t have to tell ME that.
The EF wasn`t designed to beat the F-22, but it still does, hands down. I`m sorry but it`s the truth, it`s more maneuvorable, more efficient, cheaper and it looks so much cooler. Also it`s a beauty to fly, whereas the F-22 just plain isn`t

out of 50. F-22 would blow this thing out of the sky.
and who the f*ck cares anyway
Looks Cold War Era actually...
The Marines were using Harriers for a decade or more which could land and take off upright, and the new F-35 JSFs can do the same and are extremely maneuverable.Long rage target acquisition is just something we like having in the mix :)
American Military Aviation Theory = Stealth and long range target acquisition.
you should be thankful it`s there.
(well, this one is russian, and would protect russian heads, but in the end, you would rather have one and not need it, than need one and not have it.)
very talented pilot though.good video.
