    Its only a matter of time before UAVs will be involved in dogfights....we simply haven't gone to war with a military that has sufficiently large air force for air to air engagements to be common.

    Although a sea going fighter I believe that the boys in blue will at some point be required to dog fight our enemies, all the autmation will never replace a trained pilot who will be required to defend his skies.

    We made the mistake once in Vietnam by not being trained in dog fighting. I believe it is a necessary skill and today's jets need to be designed for this tactic by being fitted with guns not just rockets. I believe with some of these 3rd world forces and middle east, China Russia will surprise us with their dog fighting capabilities some day. Don't let history repeat itself as it always seems to do.

    yes i believe Dogfights will happen in the future. because Russia china and america are all creating stealth aircraft and you can only lock on to stealth aircraft with missiles at close ranges.
