Default Re: Dogfight videos

You always need to take the engagement situation into account when watching such videos.

Is the F-22 designed/intended to be a "dogfight" aircraft? No.
It's intended to attack from outside visual and radar (due to it's reduced radar signature it can see further then it can be seen from via radar) range.

Put anything into a situation it's not designed for it will perform sub optimally.
