US Jets the best no more?
U.S. defense officials have said Indian SU-30, Mig-27 and older MiG-21 jets, some armed with Russian-made AA-10 air-to-air missiles, got the best of F-15s based in Alaska in exercise "Cope India" high over northern India

It's been suggested that USAF have skewed the results, making the F-15 look worse than it is, in order to speed up the acquisition of the new F-22 Raptor. Sort of "Look these Goddam F-15's ain't no good no more, we need these shiny new planes - FAST".

I'm getting the same as bigmurph- how can the older Mig-21's suddenly be better? -Unless they are implying that our pilots aren't as good as they used to be..."I'm a Mog... Half man, half dog. I'm my own best friend." - Barf

I'd venture to guess the USAF has fighter jets we dont yet know about that would dance circles around any mig anyday.
