The F22 Raptor is probably better suited at air combat against another 4-5th gen fighter.

The new Sukoi T-50 is more of a 4.5 gen fighter with frontal stealth but poor-to-medium side and rear radar signature and heat trails due to the external double-thrusters.

Unless they come in head-to-head, I dont think a T-50 has a chance against a F35. And dog fighting (avoidance of which is the whole point of stealth) is best serverd to the bi-axial thrust-vectoring of the F22.

While I replace my engine in my turbo Caliber, I bought a junker daily driver: a Saturn SL-1 1996. Only 132k KM on it. It drives better than the new Pontiac Sunfire I had bought in 96 and shows no rusts. I can't stop kicking the plastic door so much it's fun.

Should have bought a Saturn back in 96.

This shows that sometimes, good stuff can go extinct. And that includes phones.

We all love our smart phones (currently sport a 6+) but the old phones were good at what they were designed, too. And very cheap.

My 6+ cost me more than my Saturn!
