A far better aircraft than the F-35.
F-22 is air superiority. F-35 is ground attack.
It's like saying this screwdriver if far better than this socket wrench.
The F-35 is an excellent BVR “shooter”. It’s a whole different theory. The fear is that advanced all-aspect Russian missiles, nobody wants to get into a “Turn and Burn” engagement with a Sukhoi’s that can shoot you with a high off-bore missile. You zap that plane from a distance, before he even see’s you. The F-22 would do the same thing, but it has the agility to go toe-to-toe in case the new theory is wrong.
