I don't think the Eurofighter Typhoon has a chance against the F-35. JSF will be better in every role when it will be operational.
JSF will be much more stealthy, more survivable, with a better radar, a longer range. A better platform, period.
Moreover, the Typhoon has the RCS of a truck (for a new aircraft).

All these talks about Typhoons detecting stealth planes are fairy tales.

what is the chance of new awacs (like Eyrie) detecting F-35 (edit: most likely distance that it would be detected)? Assuming that F-35 engages with awacs support and so does Typhoon.

doesnt really matter tactically...rule number 1 when the real stuff hits the fan, dont ever trust GCI...ever, not because they suck, but because more times than not you wont even be able to hear them...

AWACS support will help F-35 tactically more then the typhoon. My guess the detection range on the f-35 for AWACS is about 100km given that the typhoon own radar have less then half vs the f-35.

What could be the outcome of a scenario, Typhoons supported by Erieye against F-35'S??? It's rather possible in the near future around 2015 to have these aircrafts operational and opposing one another over Aegean skies..Air superiority from Typhoons or JSF will end the game??

Fantasma good point, but in this case the game is mock fight (hope it won't be happening by then). So i guess it is a matter of agility.

I see where you're getting at, FANTASMA. But let's not forget that by that time Turkey will most likely have the Boeing Wedgetail...

Yes RoAF it is accurate that by 2008 Tyrkey will get 4 AWACS Boeing Wedgetail..and there are strong possibilities to see dogfights or interceptions over Aegean skies by 2015 Typhons-Erieye vs JSF-Wedgetail..i hope won't happen and problems till then to be resolved in a peaceful manner..nice day to all.

Do you guys really think, an aircraft with the latest defensive equipment and an very good maneuvrebility is unable to evad these clipped-AMRAAMS?

This missle is fast, but has a serious maneuvrebility problem.

Especially in the terminal phase.

So the US wasted billions of dollars on the F-22 so that its main missiles will miss??

errrr no. AMRAAM does not have a "serious manouverabilty problem". If you doubt me, I'll be waiting in my F-22 for you to arrive in your fighter of choice to prove you wrong.

sounds like people are fishing...amraam manueverability problems, thats a new one...

well, there are no miracles in aerodynamics. Look at the weight and look at the small control surfaces...

At the and it will be decided in WVR combat.

No wonder that all modern planes have superb maneuvrebility (F18E, Typhoon, Rafale, F-22, a capacity that F-35 lacks a bit.
