F22 is a beauty but Blackbird’s better The SR-71

I looked it up and It looks like a C17 with turboprops.

F22. However it’s almost impossible to fly on this sim. Especially takeoff. Honestly I think that all of us children from the 80’s miss the Tom Cat.

The F18 is probably one of my favorite

Very bad? How about the F22 raptor that is the best air to air combat plane in the world… and F35s escorted by F22s are the most effective duo in the world… Keep in mind the F22 is for air superiority while the F35 is a multi-role.

And I don’t have a favourite military aircraft as I love so many of them… But if I had to choose it would be the F22

I see a lot of people saying that, why do you like it more tyan the F35?

Because every time the government wants a plane to fit “all” roles, it usually sucks. Plus the f-35 dosnt look that good. That was the original idea or the F-4. It was ok at air to air. Pretty bad at air to ground cus it was too fast to be accurate in the bombing role. And the original ones didn’t even have a gun. Its better to build specialist aircraft that are really good at there intended roles. F22 is a good example. So is the A-10. All of this is coming from the number one F-4 fan. You just can’t make a plane that fits all roles and have it be good in any of them

F-16 all the way. Otherwise it would be the F-14 because of Top Gun.

The J-20 of perhaps the
Tu 160 supersonic bomber!

As a kid in the 80’s I’d say anything Grumman. As time passed I’d have to say the A10, the GD F-111, and the C-130 have become my favorites.

Definitely the F111 - look at that dump and burn!

And I digress, I’ve always had an oddly satisfying childhood fascination of the Nimrod. In my deluded yet 20/20 eyes, I think it’s beautiful :).

The MV-22 is always a nice one, although I love the F-4 Phantom as well.

I would completely agree! But for the Raf and Royal Navy it works well because it’s replacing the old, outdated Sea Harrier which wasn’t very good at air to air or ground to air combat either. [quote=“adrian_testiculese_j, post:5, topic:73453”]
it is not good with air to air confrontations and it lacks the firepower of the A-10 or F-15 for air to ground operations

But the Raf has the Eurofighter Typhoon with is brilliant at both of these and has demonstrated it on many occasions.
