    F15C vs Tomcat = Lexus vs Corolla

    Tomcat won't even see it coming.

    Sir but in above link they just said only f22 has a clear edge on tomcat due to f15 radar less range it is also strange that a product which was long ago abounded by Oem how a user able in position to challenge its letest tech aircraft. I was surprise so post link of anylsis here maybe iam wrong so seniors clear any thing which other nevr knows.

    I will wait for the "learned members" and "know it all TT's" to comment first.

    Shooting down a bird when it still on the tarmac is no fun. :cheers:

    Great article. I didn't know Fakour would be such a deterministic factor in air to air combat.

    Absurd.

    Tomcat was the F-22 of its time in terms of technological capability. Only operator besides US was Iran. MIGs feared it.

    But also like the F-22 it was costly to maintain and required maintenance. Go search how much maintenance an F-22 requires after each operation.

    You can’t compare a latest block F-15 to 1970’s block F-14. I would compare it to F-14 AM but even that is not fair comparison as Iran hasn’t completely modernized the plane to the best it can be modernized.

    Do read the thread?

    F-14A is a leap ahead in capabilities in comparison to F-15C. Go compare the price tags to get the picture.

    Absurd comparison if relating to this current potential conflict as it will be much more than platform A versus platform B and more about the totality of the systems in play.

    Iran is badly outclassed by the US here and will lose.

    If you want to compare the two in a vacuum, you would have to compare a stock F-15C and F-14A disregarding any modifications/upgrades which we really dont know the specifics about.

    The Iranians compared the older F-15A versus the F-14A and chose the Tomcat.

    Although, I read something about the Shah being impressed with a flying routine by the Tomcat which influenced his choice.
