    I prefer Tomcats very much. I have a chance since they're all being decomissioned in 2006 :)

    Ahh, I'm afraid of heights. I'm quite content with my M1A1 tank. I only drive it on Sundays though. During the week I just cruise around in my beat up old T-64.

    Really? Aww damn! I suppose they are being taken over by those fancy F-22's yeah?
  15. *opens pocket, bug flies out* sry.

  16. Actually, no.

    The F-22 is intended as a USAF air-superiority fighter to replace the F-15, the F-14 will be replaced by the F-35 JSF

    Ah, the all-knowing Gard to the rescue. F-22's I don't believe are suited for carrier-based operation.
  18. Naw, I'm far from "all-knowing"!!! :eek:

    However, yes, the F-22 is not at all suited for carrier-based operations, the undercarriage on those Navy carrier birds are VERY robust, to take the pounding they call a "landing". I'd bet if someone tried to land a Raptor that way, there'd be pieces all over the deck first try.
