They are big simply to hold two engines because the second tier types cant be trusted with just one. The rest of the room is for their ego. The radar is superior especially at range, simply because 15 pilots dont do well with actual.. "Dog Fighting".
Now 16 pilots.. they are gods of the air. and all the thrust vectoring in the world and an extra engine isnt going to save the 22 from a 3000 hour 35 year olds at the stick of a block 40+ with guns and 9's. Not as long as all 22 pilots are rookie 22 pilots. The airplane just hasnt been around long enough. But im just blowing smoke at this point. You should hear me talk about Atlanta Falcons football.. then the crap really gets deep
P.S. This is all in good fun and humor for those who may take offense.

Spent some time in Aviano with the Camera pod, and watched the Targeting pods do their thing out of Quatar, although NY got all the glory and dropped from our tail #'s just a week after the majority of the unit rotated back home. Although some were able to stay back in support of the split AEF and did grab a little glory.
There is unfortunately no official plans or word that there will be a "Langley" jet with a VA on the tail. These active duty folks here at Langley love their airplanes, so trying to pry one from their hands long enough to tag it with our colors may prove difficult.
