Pakistan armed forces need to be watchful about Israeli AF equipping itself with stealth aircraft. F-22s are formidable threat to their adversaries as these are not only stealthy but also highly agile.

They can give very difficult time in dog fight scenario which is least likely. However, Pakistani air defense needs to be enhanced to cater these type of threats.

Probably agreed to the US selling F35 to UAE so that they can do an India style rona and get F22s.

F-22 is pretty old and it doesn't have the gadgets of F-35.
F-35 received more advanced sensor systems but its 'sensor architecture' is ported from F-22A - the two have much in common in this matter. F-22A retain superiority in VLO aspects (better shaping considerations), kinematics and supercruise (two powerful engines with TVC), and payload capacity (larger size), and is stated to have some technologies which are not public knowledge.

Both F-22 and F-35 are receiving upgrades from time-to-time and both are not a substitute for each other because F-22 is no longer in production which is a drawback to live with.

F-22 lags behind Su-57 and J-20 in terms of tech. F-22 entered service in 2005 and hasn't been updated a single time since.
Not really.




F-22A is not at disadvantage in comparison to any other jet fighter in existence including F-35 variants all things considered. F-22A is equipped with some of the most innovative and powerful sensor systems ever produced (formidable blending of VLO-compliance with raw power) which translate into excellent performance in the air-to-air regime.

More advanced = Subjective

@Raider 21 Besides IFF codes what would render any US built a/c useless against Israel?
As far as I know, IFF codes are configurable so as a user you decide who is friendly or foe. There is no global level IFF codes library that every AF uses and shares with each other. And besides that, I don't think it can stop the missiles and radar from locking on and shooting if the pilot really commands, for example we still have blue on blue kills happening; otherwise the enemy can try to exploit this the other way.
