    Nope, it's the 21st century out there, pilots don't matter
    much anymore. It's the one with the better missiles and
    countermeasures. :wink:

    It depends if the film is american or not. If F-22 is driven by Tom Cruise, surely he will be the winner, and he will defeat the comunism.

    Yea, Mig 1.42 does seem cool, but the f22 is evenly matched and I doubt any will be built by russia.

    I think the best plane is aurora if it exists....

    I think it would go down pretty much like the old classic battles between the F. 86 and the Mig 15. As was the case with those aircraft, the Mig has a slight advantage in maneuverability, but the American fighter has a better weapon system.

    THe F-22 is pretty much just a boondoggle
