Those scenarios have been tested - outcome I presume was OK - aircraft designed to do this at MAX STO Take off weight.

Even the F-35B on the QE class can Ski Jump at MTOW. Always there may be restrictions due heat/WOD or whatever.

Bottom pic, gorgeous.

One match up I'm particularly interested in is F-35 vs. Typhoon. “No way an F-35 will ever match a Typhoon fighter jet in aerial combat” were the exact words of a Tiffy pilot, uttered way back in 2013.

Ever since, I have relished the opportunity to see who's right. Pretty broad statement. I would have picked my words far more carefully were I that Typhoon pilot.

We shall see...
