I suppose with all the emphasis on drone technology now, I guess the F-22 & F-35 will be the last of their generation.
I wonder if the brass is thinking twice after our loss of the intact drone to Iran.
And you don't think that was planned? ...
Loose one old technology drone to the enemy and let them think that's the best you have while you field more recent tech ? Would make sense...
Never liked the lines of the Raptor much, probably never will. I find the F-35 far sexier. Come to think of it, I've always preferred multi-role American fighters to their role-specific counterparts, aesthetically speaking at least : P-47 over P-51, F4U over F6F, P-39 over P-38, F-4 over the Dart series, F-16 over F-15, and now F-35 over F-22... Notable exceptions include the F-86 and F-14
