Topic: F-22 vs MiG-1.42


Although, I know, this plane ain't going to see service, just curious, what plane do You prefere more. After voting please full answer.
I took liberty of saying that these two planes are the best!
I voted for Raptor since I think it has better caracteristics.

Can't say as I have ever heard of the MiG 1.42 but I'm willing to bet that a Raptor and a pilot with some brass ones could blow it out of the sky.

...just looked at it on google. Looks suspiciously like the JSF.

Im not going to say anything till both have proved what they are supposed to do in combat.

Actually there is a prototype, I can give an url but I'll have to find, I forgot the name of the site...
On paper they say it is better than Raptor in any way they could only fool an idiot!
For example: they say it will be stealthier than Raptor(my baby ), no matter what RAM it has just look at it's air intakes! They would shine on the radar like a flare! Also it carries it's weapons externally!!. About manouverability: As far as I know Typhoon is not more manouverable than Raptor, well MiG is very much like Typhoon but with another vertical stabilizer!

Coz mig has Infra Red Helmet Sight, which makes all western close combat equipment obsolete. It has huge angle, and in close combat F-22 doesnt has a chance unless it has the same system.

Actually, I would vote for S-37 Berkut, its much better plane than MiG 1.42.

BTW MiG 1.42 was never ment for a service, it is merely a test system for the next generation plane technologies. Only problem is that the project never had adequate finances.
