May be partly true. The Israelis are flying F-16s and F-15s in combat missions. Not exactly stealthy to existing radars and clearly targets if the Russians are seriously intent on targeting the Israelis.

The counter would of course if the targets detect a lock, one can be sure an ARM follows.

Clearly this sub-forum and this thread are about the F-35. The title of the cited article on previous page says "F-35". I personally don't give a stuff about all the TANKS, and OTHER AIRCRAFT that keep popping up on these threads. Primarily the sub-forum is about the F-35 and that was the intent of my comment. AS IF we don't all know about NON-STEALTH!

I hear you. Just stating that when the Russians were making that comment, they probably weren't just thinking of F-35s.

OK - my contention (without knowing - just a guess) is that the statement is cover FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO DETECT F-35i.

Be nice. The Russian detected the F-35s thru binoculars when the F-35s were flying directly overhead and held back shooting their AK-47s which would brought the F-35 down with laughter.

Whether true, or not, it would seem the Israeli's have the Iranians chasing their own tail now. The Adir pilots are probably having a good ol' time back in the o'club bar.

Thank God those press idiots don't know about Luneburg lenses yet, making it easy to spot their fud.

And:
the Russians gave Israel the secret code of the Russian radar in Iran

LOL! Reminds me of Airwolf.

When I first read the article at the beginning of the thread, I immediately thought PSYOPS. Just looking at the number of supposed Iranian locations and how far apart they were, I had to chuckle. If they were actual missions, that is pretty impressive. Also, not really all that valuable. If it is PSYOPS, well if they go looking for something that isn't there, they won't find it BUTyou may learn a lot about how they plan on looking for it.
