    I can claim that RQ_170 is more stealth than F35 .... just look at the shape and the size of the plane and you will understand ...

    RQ-170 was about being just stealth observer not something to engage in combat or carry weapon or refuel in skies ...

    Your claim is utterly worthless. Now anything worthwhile to share?

    And how do you know it failed to pick up the tomahawks? Maybe they detected but there was no reason for them to shoot down the missiles.

    Russia is in Syria to just protect his own interset and in reality , they really like to be the only player in there ... so while they are in Syria , they are hand shaking with KSA and are in bed with Israel ...
    so , they won't use their system to repel any attack which is targeting Iran or pro-Iran force part of Syrian Army ..

    Exactly! They are their for their interest, if they wanted to would make Syrian airspace totally sealed.

    Oh so you think an F-35 can sneak over to Kremlin and bomb Putin to death? Doubt it.

    We already flew F-35s above Syria and Russia wasn't able to detect the F-35s,
    If it will fly high enough and evade visual contact, I believe it can.

    Japan military says F-35 fighter jet disappears from radar



    (Reuters) - Japan's Air Self-Defence Force said on Tuesday that an F-35 fighter jet disappeared from radar as it was flying over the Pacific Ocean.

    The jet was flying some 135 km (84 miles) east of northern Japan at about 7:27 p.m. (1027 GMT) when it dropped off radar, the military said.

    flying wings by their nature have smaller RCS. rq-170 had smaller RCS compared to f-35.

    You do not understand your own sources.

    1. What is the rcs of an RQ-170 class drone? Kindly let me know.

    2. True rcs figures of numerous combat aircraft are not public knowledge. Rcs figure for each bird also vary in relation to angle of approach and what type of instrument is trying to assess is.

    3. F-35 is very very close to F-22 in the matters of VLO. Any comparison putting it behind F-117 is utterly misplaced.

    What option does TR have in regards to cancel or amend the deal of S-400? It is also being reported that TR may also enter into jointly develop the S-500.

    With F-35's blocked what other options TrAF considering to replace F-4's?

    I believe foreign minister implies Su-57 as stealth alternative of F-35.
