Can’t wait until an F-22 shoots one down. . . Or several of them. :smiley:

well if that ever happens we would be in a serious conflict or war with china, not something to look forward, I wonder why they and the russians don’t have the thrust vectoring nozzles?

Lots of rivets on that thing, so it isn’t of composite material / RAM construction. I wonder how stealthy it really is.[/quote]
