            so if you actually face a nation or group of them that have half decent tech, having a plane that costs 50 million that gets shot down just the same as a 8 million dollar one makes you wonder why build the 50 million one.

              It costs a fuck ton of money to train good pilots.

Arab cunts cant even train them themselves but have to pay westerners absurd salaries to come, China does this too lol. Russia will have to aswell after depleting their valuable pilot pool

It was always going to be a slaughter but the fact that the Syrians took 85% aircraft losses and 97% SAM losses while managing to do nothing besides down a drone and scuff some paint is still utterly inexcusable.

              In the case of the F-35, the plane is very hard to lock with a missile and has an absolutely amazing sensor package that can target your missiles on the group hundreds of miles out. The F-35 can take out your missiles with its own long range stand off missiles or by feed the target to something else, like a cruise missile or a drone wingman.

              The F-35 is obviously a lot quicker to deploy in defensive situations than a truck, while on offense it can provide close air support. It does a lot a missile truck cannot.

            Where are your air superiority fighters now?

            Counterpoint: the IDF has been flying American fighters, including the F-35 but also 50 year old airframes, to bomb Syria for the past decade. Thousands of sorties per year. It has not lost a single pilot.

            This is through Russian AA, Syrian AA provided by Russia, and Iranian AA provided by Russia, including their own S-300. Even if you want to cope about Russia not wanting to shoot down IDF fighters, they clearly cannot detect the F-35 well enough to even get warnings out to their allies about incoming attacks.

            Obviously Russian shit does actually work to some degree. Israeli missiles get intercepted for example, just not at nearly the rate they would need to be to be effective (same issue for HIMARS).

            Misusing any platform can lead to losses and the Saudis are retards. They neglect to suppress AA in the area and then come in for low altitude CAS because they can't into having proper signaling/targeting so that they could just hurl a JDAM at the target from 20 miles away. If you criss cross an area with AA missiles for a decently long period you can get shot down regardless of how nice your platform is, granted you would have much better odds with a stealth aircraft just due to the difficulty of getting/keeping a lock.

    Anon, having air superiority doesn't mean you're at no risk of getting shotdown or damaged. If they are able to do operations, then they still control the air. It will only become a problem if they managed to deny their air superiority and stop the bombs . Also, arabs suck at wars, so there is that.
