Imagine just how much more updated the threat library is now for the F-22, F-35, and other aircraft.

It's been a treasure trove of ELINT/SIGINT/EOB intel, for our threat libraries, not to mention seeing how our systems really work against real world sensors. It's also provided us with BDA information, on various Russian A2G weapons. I can also guarantee that we've used tactics, to ensure that the intel gathering was more one-sided, to our advantage. (i.e. masking RCS, flying in passive modes, using non-LPI waveforms when appropriate, etc....)

For both sides which is why Russia sent a specialized ELINT aircraft to Syria. Also both the S-400 and Su-35 got their first looks at the F-22.

I'm guessing that whenever those Russian birds were nearby, that certain modes weren't utilized. I'm also guessing that Raptor pilots used techniques to mask their true signatures. The Russians didn't necessarily have the same luxury, as they didn't know when F-22s were sniffing signals.

I'm sure they got a look but it wasn't a very good one :wink:
