It’s amazing to me how many people (especially here on this site) who don’t understand, grasp or accept anything other than what they see in a photo or two. (I only see 1 post in this topic that understands what’s going on).

It’s also amazing to me how disingenuous some people are, maybe to show themselves as relevant or something? This ties directly into whenever someone posts photos or tells a tale.

How?

They’re not telling you the whole story. If they would, it'll easily explain what you're seeing in the photos.

"they were able to outmanoeuvre the Germans due to the Raptor's thrust vectoring"


Wait, wait thrust vectoring Is it not just for an air show? :shock:

In an all guns traditional dogfight scenario (1v1) of course TV will benefit. There are just very few (and specific) scenarios in which TV will lead to a substantial advantage, which is why the stubby gurus didn't bother

TV is a cool tech, and will undoubtedly provide those lucky enough to have it an additional option or two in some scenarios, that being said, it can also leave you sitting there with no airspeed, which likely means game over :twisted:

Bullets are small ,the sky is big , so first must hit the target to call a shoot. Don't matter were you are if the bullets don't hurt you. Important is to have reserve power to get away from there.
