The F-15 cannot do vtol.
I don't think you read my post very well.

The number of engines has nothing to do with it.... but the F-15 and the F-22 both have 2, the F-16 and the JSF have one engine each.

I think the reason that the F-22 hasn't had much use (yet), is because it isn't in production yet.... Which brings me to; why do the pilots you know prefer a 25 year old, single-engined fighter over the state of the art, not yet in use F-22, which they haven't flown?

Well even the USofA can't pay for all those fighters by itself... And they need know-how from other countries too. So I'm afraid it's either selling JSF's to other countries, or don't have it at all...

Hey everyone - new guy here.

Little late in the posting - but seems that everyone's gone off the topic. Anyway, I believe that the Mig 1.44/1.42 will probably win a confrontation because of its stealth features! What stealth features you might ask?

I got two words: "Plasma Shielding"

Google it >> Guaranteed to reduce RCS of the plane by a factor of 100.

What's funny is that this is coming from a former die-hard F-22 fan - till I realized that it was just a propaganda machine with a ridiculous price tag.
