    If the plane suffered electrical damage, that could have affected the transponder. As I understand it, the plane being stealth affected their ability to track it in-flight because that’s exactly what happened. The truly tragic part of the story is still that it didn’t crash into Clemson’s stadium around midnight.
    I haven’t looked more into it to know what happened exactly or what they’re saying did.

    I know it doesn’t have all the fancy stealth stuff the F-22 has but I think it’s still meant to fill that same role.

      It’s a cheaper version with some unique upgrades. This was a Marine variant. So, VTOL capabilities. It’s more versatile and modular. The F22 is sheer badassery, but more of a one trick pony. We have a squadron of those here.

        I’d let an F-22 spend a night with my wife.

            I just went to an air show a month ago with an F-22 there. It isn't stealthy, it was louder than all 6 Blue Angels combined......

            That thing could clear out a city with its sounds alone.

              What if I told you that that’s not how stealth technology works?

                  No, I totally get how it works it's going to use elevation and it flys ahead of it's sound......

                  I'm just telling you it isn't going to fly 5ooo feet above Moscow and they don't know it's there.....lol That fucking thing was LOUD

                  It sounded like they combined a NASCAR race with the Boo's at a Kentucky game.

                    This isn’t the plane that’s built around that skill set. It’s capable of bombing runs, but it’s really built to take out other jets. So, sound really shouldn’t come into play.

                    Besides. I think we’re building towards less manned fighters. Imagine if an aircraft carrier filled with thousands of drones rolled up and launched a swarm. Moscow literally wouldn’t know what hit them. They’d have to launch an EMT just to end it.
