48. When was the last time we lost a dog fight?
Seriously. We need to get a grip on outspending the rest of the world's COMBINED military expenditures. It is not just hardware. It is the fact that our pilots are the best trained and best practiced anywhere. The F16 is more than capable against anything, anyone has now or in the pipeline.

Christ with satellites, unmanned drones, and cruise missiles launched from subs, the F22 is ridiculous overkill. Considering that the F22 propaganda proves it is a match for any 5 fighters at one time, we really only need about 30 since which air force has more than 150 F16 equivalents.

Get a grip. The War Department is bankrupting us.
