It handles like an F-105. I mean just look at this here at 1:20



Can't turn (9.9 recorded), can't climb (do we have figures yet?), can't run (mach 1.6 with full weapons load). Nobody can see it, but it can see everyone and what they're doing (in the air and on the ground, 360 degree coverage). Even if it did handle (?("like an F-105), I'd take the near invisibility cloak and situational awareness any day.

WOW, excellent photo there!

You don't happen to have a higher resolution of that same photo, do you?
But and if yes, could you share it? :wink:

Using Google to search the image turned up a 2k * 1.4k version.

The complex lines on F-35 make PAKFA look like a cartoon drawing in comparison. Even then J-20 is like a rough pencil drawing in comparison, especially with its large flat surfaces

Absolutely!
And it's a perfect fit for my desktop since it has the exact same size as my desktop's monitor resolution (1920x1080) :D

Thanks for sharing :thumb:

From this angle looks positively deadly. Sleek even. Yet from the side it looks like a bathtub, LOL. It's growing on me. I'd say the view from head on, from the rear and looking straight down at her are the best IMO. And although I think PAK FA looks better overall, I'd concede much leaves to be desired in the back of that aircraft. The F-35 looks "tight" nose to tail, the same way the F-22 does.

Foreign counterparts not so much..
