At the same time old veteran in US Air force F-16 went head to head with the F35. F16 has been rewriting what success means in the hostile sky. Either it’s a Mig 17 or Mig 21 even Mig 29 when it came to dogfight F16 proved it’s worth without any doubts. At the same time, F16 was developed in early 70’s but US kept updating it’s components as the science achieved more insights about the mechanics of a Fighter Jet.
If it’s long distance strike, F35 will prove its superiority. But if it came down to hunting the prey with the canon; essentially dogfight with your opponent; F16 seems to be the superior in that context.
