I'm not sure how relevant to the current discussion this is, but, if we have such advanced aircraft, and we also have un-manned aircraft, is that not a wiser choice for wars?
I mean what are we doing still sending troops to fight a ground war. We're spending money on all this amazing technology. I think we ought to use it...at least until we here on earth learn how to use the force.
POP-SCI had an article awhile back that we now have stealth/invisibility cloak technology for our vehicles in broad daylight.
