Topic: Modern Fighter Cage Match: Round 1


Alright, here it is. This is the Modern Fighter Cage Match. I There will be 5 rounds. I will put up a poll with 2 fighters and you guys vote for which ever one you think would win in a dog fight. I will leave it up for two days. The winner of that round will move on to the next round to go up against another fighter. The winnder of the last round will be forever in Cage Match Heaven.

NOTE: I REALIZE IT SAYS SU-29. i ACTUALLY MEANT THE SU-27 FLANKER.

The natural bias of many of US servicemen is likely ot make the results of this come out wrong.

F-16 is better.. and not just the hardware, the pilot training is very important too. An experienced pilot can shoot any bandits down.

I think we should leave the pilot training out of this one, and say that both pilots are equally trained (country doesn't matter).

The poll is for the hardware only...

Dont think it could last too long vs a F-16.

So we're comparing a prop-plane with a fairly modern jet engined fighter? Gee, wonder who will win??

You're absolutely right - good catch! http://www.snaproll-sukhoi.com/su29.htm Maybe it was a typo for Su-27

If I was a combat pilot, I'll take the SU-27 Flanker over the F-16 Falcon. Winning the battle depends on skill, not equipment.
