The F-35 Lightning II is a multirole aircraft, designed to do everything from reconnaissance to stealth to air combat.

The F-35 was designed to be an adaptive platform capable of replacing multiple aircraft types. Three variants of the F-35 will replace the A-10 and F-16 for the U.S. Air Force, the F/A-18 for the U.S. Navy, the F/A-18 and AV-8B Harrier for the U.S. Marine Corps, and a variety of fighters for at least ten other countries

F16 was designed as an air superiority fighter but it is used as a multirole fighter. F15 is a pure as an air superiority fighter, US was planning to replace F15 with F22, but they ended the program to support F35 production.

F35 was designed to replace A-10, F15, F16, F22 and F18. It is only recently that USAF wanted to upgrade F15 instead of having F35 replace it. So you are saying a plane that was designed to replace air superiority planes is not meant to engage in close combat.
I don't think you understand what a multirole fighter means.

Honestly, they'll bomb Iran to dust without even giving them a chance to retaliate. Sensationalism has limits. Just because the US has interests in the region doesn't mean it fears Iran.

Says the guy that claims a plane that was designed to replace air superiority planes aren't meant to engage in close combat. Theres no point discussing with you, you cant accept you are wrong.

Strong = Subjective

I would argue that Cold War was America's most difficult in its history.

Iranians are not just quite but biggest arrogant pricks in this world. They have nothing compared to American military might and yet they jump up and down as if they are supper power.

I'm telling you, in conventional warfare just 2 squadron of F-18 along with 5-10 Growlers are more then enough to cripple entire Iranian air force and their defence system and rest is history.

WATCH following footage carefully


Some serious dogfighting moves in there. Knowledgeable can tell.

Do not be under any illusion.
