You can't convert him...
Fireblade, 'cause of the f-22:
it is slower
that doesn't matter, except in very special circumstances. And has the Flanker supercruise ability? (not rhetorically, i don't know it)
it is still unarmed
bullshit, they tested AMRAAMs and as much I know AIM-9X, too.
You have to remember that it's a totaly new airplane, it takes some time to get it armed (and to develop the TWC). The new Flankers originate from a airplane developed in the seventies as a counterpart for the F-15 and F-16. The new Flankers are just advantages of this aircraft. But the F-22 is a fundamentaly new concept, it's something special, 'cause of its extreme stealthiness and so on.
You forget air-refueling, and the USAF has enough tankers.
it costs 130 millions
The USAF ordered about 600 F-22, probably they will finaly get less, but they get quite a lot of them, and then they have them and it doesn't matter how much it costs.
