Wouldn't F35 be the most formidable dogfighter?Nope, except for F35. F22, Su 57, even J20 consider ccms, at the end - dog fight. In 5th plus stealth gen fighter jet warfare, dog fight & ccm is more important than bvr. That's why USAF next gen air superiority jets asap to protect b2, b21 and F35. BVR only good against 4.5minus jets. In simple- when two f22 detect each other ?
It's got whole sphere DAS coverage out to 10s of miles. The pilot simply fires an AIM9X which can lock on after launch like Python 5.
If AMCA came with a DAS like system and EW capability which is even half as good as F-35, it will be major leap for us.
