The easy answer would be health, education, etc. but then you would have to have the world's entire population asking "if we're not going to spend almost 2 trillion dollars a year on weapons to kill our own species, then what are we going to spend it on?" :dyinglaughing: Ah, silly humans.

The F-22 is different kettle of fish. From what I can figure out, the F-35 was designed as an inferior aircraft to sell to other countries. The F-22 was supposed to clear the skies for the F-35 to come in and do the grunt work.

This gives what appears to be a concise head-to-head comparison. Remember the Aussie's aren't as economically tied to the US as we are, so they can be more politically incorrect.

This analysis has the SU-35 as significantly superior to the F-35 in fighting capability and importantly, in survivability due to its twin engines being widely spaced.

problem is that it isnt for canada. its for bombardier and quebec. there isnt such a thing as competition anymore so the contracts will all go to bombardier. and all the money.
