The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) staged an excercise pitting the JSF against the 4th generation russian fighters and it got it’s arse handed to it in the turning game. Link goes to the movie. Memorable quotes are:
“The report says the JSF is: “‘Double inferior’ relative to modern Russian/Chinese fighter designs in visual range combat.” And has “Inferior acceleration, inferior climb, inferior sustained turn capability.”
It concludes that the JSF: “Can’t turn, can’t climb, can’t run.”
and dogfighting it is:
“like clubbing baby seals”
I’ve been saying it enough – JSF is a dud!
