F-35 is fat, really fat. Can NOT do supersonic cruise. Maneuverability is very bad, much worse than F-16. Flight envelope is bad.

That's only true for the CATOBAR Navy and the VTOL Marine versions.
The Air Force version which is the vast majority of the orders doesn't have an issue

The Pentagon is placing permanent flight restrictions on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters flown by the Navy and Marine Corps, restrictions that limit the jets to short bursts of supersonic speed at high altitudes...The Air Force’s -A version will not fly with the restriction

BS Russian Airforce Budget lower than IAF With big assets

India has More Flying hours 150

Average flying hours of IAF Pilots may range from 200–300 hrs per year i.e. 6.25 hr (approx) per week, For those who are thinking its very less, well even for USAF and other NATO Allies Average Hours is almost same. Also, please note that this data is not published anywhere, but based on various articles and reports, this is what i came up with, and looks very near to real figures.

Do you have Source of that
India Actively involved Pakistan
There CAP hour are larger

USAF Air-force budget 291 Billion $

Russia 23 billion $ With Such large Force of Aircraft

IAF has 28 billion $

Russian Economy Is Not allowed them Such large flying hours
