Alright, this could be big. The two best aircraft in NATO's arsenal- and possibly, the world, but the Russians don't like to release the important stats on their birds- face off in a full blown, no holds barred dogfight. For whatever reasons, a flight of Eurofighters have fallen into the hands of the IRA, along with their defecting pilots. They then attempt to shoot down airliners over Great Britain to further their terrorist goals. The British government calls in backup, and the US starts sending over Raptors. The two senior Raptor pilots accompany their birds to England, and they're outfitted with weaponry, then sent north.
The IRA gets word that the fighters are heading north, and scramble their own jets. They climb, and fly toward what was the last approximated position of the Raptors. They approach within 150 miles when the Raptors spot the Typhoons, and close the distance. The Typhoons have yet to spot the stealthy -22s. But there are only two F/A-22's, while there are eight Eurofighters.
The cool part about this fight is that four of the finest weapons that the Western world has developed for aerial combat come into play. Each Raptor is armed with four AIM-9X Sidewinders, six AIM-120C Bk. 6 AMRAAMs, and an M61A2 Vulcan cannon. Each Typhoon is armed with four MBDA Meteor missiles, four IRIS-T short range missiles, and a Mauser BK-27 cannon.
Neither side has AWACS support. The British pilots are fairly experienced, while the Raptor pilots are the top two in the Air Force. The Typhoons outnumber the Raptors 8 to 2. For either side to win, they must destroy every plane on the opposing force. Who wins?
Come on, people, this topic should be jumpin'!! :( :( :( :( <_< <_< <_< <_< <_< <_< <_<
I'm going to give this to the Eurofighters. While I think the F-22's are better fighter jets and they have two aces flying them, we're talking about a 4:1 ratio here.
