Default Re: Will China and Russia Make U.S. F-22 and F-35 Stealth Fighters Obsolete?

Good old fashioned wire guided atgm systems can't be jammed.

As far as the F-22 and F-35 being obsolete, even IF they can be detected by radar, which is not a jammer, are still very effective weapon systems. The only way I can see Russia and/or China making those systems obsolete is developing a 6th generation system fighter and considering currently Russia has not began production of a 5th gen fighter and China's J20 is being considered a 4+ gen fighter when compared to the F-22 and F-35. Still going to be a while before those systems are obsolete. Heck, depending on the mission, the F-15, F-16, and A-10 are still not obsolete.

Good topic.
