I concur, he doesn't say anything about details on the performance such as payload, altitude, etc.

He's doing his own calculations which from what I can tell, are overly simplistic.

Here is the summary:

I'm happy with what i'm seeing with the F-35 although I'm surprised at his assesment o the F-22

He did say that his accuracy on 5th gen fighter estimates is 1/10 though

What does you think of his actual methodology next to the figures?

first order approximations only, rather poor.
