The F-35 Can't Beat The Plane It's Replacing In A Dogfight: Report

送信時刻:
 
We’ve heard of significant shortcomings before with the fighter jet that’s supposed to be America’s future, but this is just as bad as it gets. The F-35 performed so dismally in a dogfight, that the test pilot remarked that the it had pretty much no place fighting other aircraft within visual range. (foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com) さらに...

Hunk of Junk. "We won't dogfight anymore. We don't need a gun". Somebody forgot to tell the North Vietnamese MIG's as they came out after gunless F-4's.

Here is another article on that from ARSTechnica. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/06/report-in-test-dogfight-f-35-gets-waxed-by-f-16/
