THEORY: rapid pitch up maneuver will defeat Phoenix. The missile lacks "oomf" needed to follow agile fighters

Possible, but at closer range the Phoenix will have more than enough extra power to follow an agile fighter. You do realize that the Phoenix has a range in excess of 126 miles and can reach speeds above Mach 5 right?

V_Bomber: Super Tomcat.....older design, more expensive.........mainly more expensive.............we have a history of buying aircraft that are not as capable because its cheaper and thats all politicians care about..........

You would think, but it seems we spend so much money, that we don't always pick the right thing to put it into..........either that or morons with not combat expierence decide its a waste of money, like buying more F-22s for instance.......
