That's true, but this is assuming we have two equally skilled pilots, trained the same way.

Then I'll still choose the SU-27 Flanker. I believe American planes are too overrated. Besides, a F-16 Falcon got shot down by a Iraqi MiG-25 in the Gulf War of 1991.

I like the Flanker. It can do the cobra maneuver (Fly straight ahead horizontally with a vertical nose-up attitude).

yes.. the SU-27 can do marvellous aerobatic. But in a dogfight, doing the Cobra manoeuvre is rather useless as it has to be at low speeds. A passing Zero fighter can even shoot it down..

What we need is a fast and agile fighter that can shoot and go..
