Iran has 8 years of actual WAR experience with the F-5 so I really don't need no American stats or American movies to tell me what an ill equipped fighter the F-5 is!!!!Vevak doesn't know anything about real fighting. Ever since he listened to the American movie Top Gun with Tom Cruise, he sees American pilots and their planes as gods. He speculates but be sure that Iranian fighter jets are much better than he thinks. It is impossible that the Iranians have completely subscribed to the Shafaq project and we will see that in the future.
Iranian scientists and the military know what they really need. The ARIAF topic is really the worst topic here because a few speakers are slipping solid.
The F 35 hahahaah
Iranian Air-to-Air Victories 1976-1981 (archive.org)
The stats above have both confirmed and claims
Now tell me what exactly is it that makes you assume that the F-5 or Kosar would have any chance against an IRST equipped fighter for within visible range engagements let alone have the capability to engage a 4.5Gen fighter let alone a 5th gen fighter from beyond visible range?
