WRT the F-15SE I see no reason why it can't be survivable against any non 5th gen platform, at least on equal terms. The AESA radar is extremely powerful and capable, it has a large fuel fraction, powerful motors, and reduced frontal RCS. The only thing against it is a fairly high wing loading. As long as speed it kept above corner speed it shouldn't bleed energy too fast. I just wish a properly upgraded F-15 could have come about, oh, 13 years ago when the upgraded hornet was?

Hopefully, the SE still has a market interest not just around the world, but perhaps within the US market too.

I find it unlikely, but never say never.
We have to wait and see how the F-35 vanilas turns out and its cost mess..

A year ago there was a strong argument that the SE was too expensive VS the new F-35 design..

I'm not sure what to believe anymore :?:

Dude, that's a really old photo-shop from back in the day (when Chinese fanboys were more desperate).

Do anyone else's eyes kind of cross trying to make out the lines of that picture? It's like the intakes and outlets don't line up right.

Looks like some took s huge hammer to the elegant lines of the Flanker and made it look like a Fulcrum

That's one of the ugliest things I've seen since the SLUF ate a bus and somehow became stealthy in the process.
