F-22 Raptor and F-15 Eagle Aggressors

Aggressors on the prowl

  1. Potential adversaries like the Su-30MK that scored a 9:1 ratio against the F-15? Not a very good ‘replication’.

  2. Those Su-30MK Flankers scored that 9:1 ratio in an exercise in which the non-upgraded F-15C Eagles where quite restricted. For example they were not allowed AIM-120 AMRAAM capability and they were outnumbered. The range they could ‘fire’ Sparrows was also reduced.

  3. In that exercise against Su-30MK Flankers the non-upgraded F-15C Eagles were quite restricted. For example they did not simulated AIM-120 capability and they were often outnumbered. There may have been some other restritions as well.

  4. Murdoc – Cool stuff, great pic, I’m glad they’re on our side. 🙂 I hope you are well. I wanted to say hello and let you know that I recently self-published my first ‘Hard To Swallow – Absurd Thoughts About God’ book through Lulu Publishing. It was quite easy and totally FREE too. Thank you very much for visiting my blog and for linking to me, it has been a huge inspiration. I plan to eventually give a copy of the hardcover book to most of my offline friends; conservatives, moderates, and liberals. I think the brevity of the ‘absurd thoughts’ will be a good way to help them to think about many of today’s big issues. Please download the FREE eBook(s), I’d love to hear what you think about them. Try ‘Hard To Swallow – Live’, its download doesn’t cost me anything. I’m giving it away to ALL my blogging buddies, acquaintances, visitors, and my favorite blogs and their readers. I decided that making it ‘FREE for a Limited Time’ at Lulu is better and easier than having people have to email me for a copy. Obviously then, FREE for anybody, so go for it guys! Enjoy! Also, if you like it, please feel FREE to send it to your friends too. Let it go viral, thank you! All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom. The ‘War of the Words’ continues… 🙂 absurd thought – God of the Universe says have regular book burnings double as barbecues post public executions . absurd thought – God of the Universe says don’t pay attention ignore absurd thoughts that are uncomfortable . USpace Publishes ‘Hard To Swallow’ Book USpace Storefront and Blog Feeds 🙂 .

  5. There is a flaw in the F-15c radar that the Su-30MK can take advantage that results in the dead F-15c almost every time. The upgraded radar eliminates that flaw. That said, if you are doing war games against an base F-15c, a nine to one ratio sounds right.
