The flying enveloppe is one of the main thing that is ended first during a fighter developpment phase. The agility of the F35 is now fully known and is at best average. Don't imagine it will be better in a neor or long future. It is a cold case in the F35 exemple.This dogfight is not something that can be taken at face value for how a finalized F-35 jet will perform vs. F-16s in real-time combat situations.
No link between VLO and a possible increase of agility. Agility possibilities are tuned once the plane is on the drawing board. There is so few to fine tune after. As said, F35 agility enveloppe is now reached. No good news to wait for.These restrictions are being slowly but surely LIFTED in view of the efforts to make VLO characteristics more reliable
LOOOOL ! Gripen, Eurofighter, Rafale are all best dog fighters. F35 only release some aero show manoeuvers, useless in combat situation (as cobra maneuvers for exemple) and with quite low fuel. In real life it is smashed by any good 4th gen fighter.This jet can perform maneuvers that necessitate TVC implementation in 4th generation jet fighters to pull off. This jet can perform maneuvers that even F-16s cannot for real.
according to china news maybe. What is the NEZ of the PL15? That is the sole real usefull information.the PL15 has a much longer range that the meteor.
A 300km range in the best situation, ie fired from very high altitude and very high speed against a non manoeuvring target is just a marketing data, but never used in combat.
