  2. that is just too cool. but how would anyone be even able to fly it? youd have to be in top physical condition. weird.

    you can go to russia and buy old MIGs for cheaper.

    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.

    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.

    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.
