Is dogfighting even a significant part of the doctrine of modern air forces? Most engagements should be beyond visible range given the technology that available compared to the 70s/80s Top Gun stuff.

Plus, how likely is it that two equally well equipped air forces are going to come into direct conflict? Everything seems to be assymetric these days.


Plenty of gunfighters still left in the decision area who remember 'Nam and the lack of cannon on the first Phantoms.

Hence why the F35 and F22 still have cannon installed.


Yeah - they might even be useful if they actually carried an ammo load. The F22 carries enough ammo for a single 4 second burst, the f35a about half that. The b and c don't even.have a cannon installed - if they need it there's an external steal the weapons of for the canon and amm9


The F22 carries an M61 Vulcan cannon. How much ammo do you expect them to carry? Your 'single 4 second burst' is almost 500 rounds and weighs about 60 kg. They wouldn't strap 60 kg of lead bricks to an airplane unless they really thought it was necessary


Are there different rates of fire settings for that? I’d imagine the preference would be to not shoot off all 4s worth of ammo in one burst if at all possible.

Very, very early Bugs Bunny ... almost looks like a ninja rabbit hunter, flying through the air to whack it.

The best bit was the growler turning away from the river just before the Storey Bridge and travelling sideways over Chinatown.
