    Be glad we bailed you guys out in WWI and WWII... no in all seriousness the Stang was indeed in the works before British requests for a sleek fighter with high performance. The Merlin engine came after pilots realized that at high altitude the Mustang lost more power than it actually gained. US engineering and British ingeniuty helped to create one of the best fighters ever.

    Umm I agree..the F-22 is the badest bird in the skies. Chances are the EuroFighter won't see the Raptor that shoots it down, be it on radar or visible range.... If it actually does come to a "Dogfight" the raptor is billed as the most manuverable fighter on the planet shy of a Flanker, on top of the "Super Cruise" ability, i.e. it can out fly and out run anything else in the sky.
