I'll stay on the ground with the patriot missile defence system while you guys are wasting fuel way up there.  ;D

Russian choppers are real great, but their fighters are... dubious...  ;)

i'd do it the old fashioned way, give me a Vulcan cannon anyday!!

Vulan and patriots, for kids. Give me the Barett 50 cal anti armour rifle and i would surprise the pilot with a headshot.  ;)

That's a kid's toy. i'd use a jack-knife. That'd make the rest look lively.

Hm, now that i think of it, i'd like to see a Sopwith camel with an M1A2 fight it out with an F-16 with Vickkers. ;D

how about a long a boring fight?

Get a Fokker Triplane (like the Red Barons- who mightve been killed by an Aussie :o) and an F-16 or a F-22 and shoot down the -16 or -22 with a .303 bolt action rifle...how boring

well, if you think about it would be the earliest form of dogfights (before they got the idea to stick a machine gun on the wing) and the newest form of it...bvr, heat seeking...

No, let's arm two F-16 with Fireworks. Then we can get them to dogfight.

Well, we could always have a tank of extremely volatile explosives mounted under the fuselage. of we could put some hydrogen ballons on TOP of the fuselage... Oh, boy. This i can't wait to see.

or you wait and see which one gets bored with the idea first.

Maybe all future dogfights could be settled with a game of chicken

build a big brick wall, get to planes and make them fly at it. the first one to eject or pull away looses!

It's gotta be a big brick wall. Ok, you fly the SR-71 and i'll fly the AH-47. Doesn't work, see?
