Comment: Comment: The F-22 has demonstrated remarkable capabilities far superior to any other fighter currently in US service. Given the rapid aging of the F-15 demonstrated by the grounding of much of the fleet because of severe structural problems, there seems to be little choice but to invest in additional F-22 fighters to modernize the US Air Force.

Comment: Comment: Large bombers have proven to be quite useful over Iraq and Afghanistan where a single plane can precisely attack a dozen or more targets. However, the cost of such a plane will be hard to justify unless a potential adversary like Russia or China begins developing a comparable aircraft.

Comment: Given the teething difficulties India has had developing its indigenous Tejas, a joint program with a mature aircraft company is probably wise. Unfortunately, the design of Russia's concept is essentially frozen putting India in the unenviable position of pouring massive amounts of money into the development of a fighter it has no control over. Comment: It is interesting how these results remained neck-and-neck throughout the polling period. Overall, excitement about the A380 appears to be rather muted.
