    Maybe they aimed to high and got away from the time honored and proven Soviet mentality.

    Make something simpler them the muricans make it tough and reliable and make a fuck to of it. Offsetting any potential tech advantage with sheer numbers.

    I don't think its the stealth part they are having the biggest issues with.

    Good luck offsetting any tech advantages with the whole ten planes.

    i dont think this works in the long term. especially today when that type of war of attrition does not exist and cannot exist with the existence of nuclear weapons.
