With two stealth aircraft of equal ability, the contest will depend on who detects the other guy first, whether that guy can maneuver onto the tail of the other aircraft, and how effective the IR countermeasures are. There's an ungodly amount of heat being produced by both aircraft, so both guys should be able to get IR lock into the other. Depending on the engine louvers, etc, they may defeat the all-aspect aspects of an IR missile but if they get of the other guy's tail, they should be able to get lock.The US no longer seems to have a monopoly in the stealth fighter business. The news has been filled lately with stories of the Chinese developing a fighter that has stealthy qualities and so has Russia.
I guess I never expected us to be the only ones to use stealth tech to win battles. I knew that one day the others would do it too.
My question is what does a fight between two stealth planes look like? Would it be a return to guns and dog fighting (not that we've left that way of doing things)?
