4 AIM-120C, actually, more if they want to put them on wings (in stealth pods, no less!).

 

Top speed won't matter in most cases. The Su isn't going to be doing any supersonic dashes either if it wants to get back home.

Id rather take a VLO fighter with 2 missiles than a flying barn with 12. In certain situations youll be ale to have a higher degree of success with VLO than the later, specialy if you get shot down before throwing anything yourself. :D

I think it is honest to say that if you look at specifications an F-35A should be able to replace an F-15C in the air defense/QRA role.

 

Lockheed-Martin is proposing this BTW.

 

I'll take an F-35A in Lockon with 4 Amraams any day. Just being many seconds closer to the bandit before being painted would make such a huge deal that I wouldn't hesitate for a split second.

 

Don't forget an F-16 chase plane cannot keep up with F-35 in acceleration, while it is one of the best performers in this area already.

No; AMRAAM has a certain Pk at various ranges. The F-35 can get closer.

And RL ... many more 120's have hit than missed. :)

The purpose of stealth is to not be attacked while you are attacking - or at minimum to give you an SA and initiative advantage.

 

In this case it also happens to give your missiles better Pk.

Plus, we're talking about enemy aircraft coming in with an A2G payload ... what's the problem here?

Theres 2 sides of this ^^^^

 

1-for one side the F-35 has become a luxury item, not the affordable aircraft it was supposed to be.

 

2-It is a form of pressuring 1 manufacturer in the tender for a better offer by announcing other as favourite.

 

Everybody is cutting, not just for lack of need, but to the economical crysis, wich unlike it is often said its aggravating rather then recovering.

The whistling could be cause by the stabilization system, or maybe the engine like a PW engine in the F-16.

Anyone have videos / pictures of the C model?

 

I have only seen the ones from the F-35C (CF-01) roll out off the factory.
