It’s been reported a few times that F-22, the so-called stealthiest fighter in the world, cannot even penetrate Chinese air defense, not to mention F-35 or Russian air defense. Now, can F-22 penetrate their own American air defense? Probably easily, which is why they can be so proud of F-22. Second to stealth, confusion has been considered the best option for air penetration attacks in a YouTube video published 2 years ago (https://youtu.be/A85Czh9KexI), unveiled by US Air Force meant to scare Putin. What do you think? Confusion or stealth? In fact, confusion is so cheap that it’s almost irresistible. Why bother with stealth if confusion works so well? Aren’t stealth fighters too expensive?
Well, drones are vulnerable to cyber attacks and electronic attacks, just because they are unmanned. A large-scale electromagnetic bomb detonated in the sky may disable thousands of incoming drones simultaneously, in which case S-400 can simply follow up to take out the remaining manned aircraft, nothing confusing at all. Stealth is still the best policy. The ignorance of your enemy is always your best friend. Use it to your very advantage. Knowledge is the first, if not the only, game changer in the battlefield. Knowledge matters.
It isn’t obvious that ignorance is a far inferior state to confusion until you start thinking in the shoes of your enemy. I’d rather be confused any day. Be very scared when you are ignorant.
