Would our Air Force(aka Robert Gates) be happier if you guys said it sucks?!
Anyway, I'm not a frequent reader here so can you give me a quick rundown of what happened to Dozer?

Dozer appears at the end of 4/5 and his tale continues in part 5/5

Between speed, stealth, altitude and all their capabilities, it was not even close . . . until we had regenerated so many times that they ran out of missiles and had to gun us . . . then it was fun but we still got thumped. By the end, the 2 Raptors had taken the best adversary replication we could give and played out a score of something like 18-0.

Also, having the Raptor jocks write their name on the back of your jet isn't something to be proud of either.
