    Post 2025, when 5th gen fighters come into operation in more airforces like Russia, India, China, NATO, Japan, Australia and maybe other countries (Korea, Brazil, South Africa ?), what will be the outcome of a faceoff between two squadrons of 5th gen fighters or between a 5th gen fighter and a LO 4.5 gen aircraft or between a 5th gen fighter and a 4.5 gen flanker?

    The points to remember are the following -
    1. Electronic warfare
    2. Radar (imagine all with AESA)
    3. IRST
    4. Stealth/ LO features (if any)
    3. BVR weapons
    4. WVR weapons
    5. Range and speed
    6. Network centricity/ AWACS support

    Aircraft examples would be
    5th gen air superiority fighter - F-22, PAK-FA/ FGFA, F-35A, J-20 etc
    5th gen attack/ multirole fighter - F-35B, F-35C, AMCA,
    4.5 Gen LO fighter - Rafale, Eurofighter, F-18 SH
    4.5 Gen Flanker - Su-30 MKI, Su-30 MKK, Su-30 MKM, Su-27, Su-33, Su-34

    Here are some scenarios
    1. 5th gen air superiority fighter vs 5th gen air superiority fighter
    2. 5th gen air superiority fighter vs 5th gen attack/ multirole fighter
    3. 5th gen air superiority fighter vs 4.5 Gen LO fighter
    4. 5th gen air superiority fighter vs 4.5 Gen Flanker
    5. 5th gen attack/ multirole fighter vs 4.5 Gen LO fighter
    6. 5th gen attack/ multirole fighter vs 4.5 Gen Flanker
    7. 4.5 Gen Flanker vs 4.5 Gen LO fighter (maybe)

    It is too vast and actually wastes time.
