You said the F-35 would never fight against the rafale. I gave you just one situation. With Egypt and Israel, where it could.
I already knew about this example beforehand when I wrote that post. The economic and technological base simply aren't the same. A more valid comparison would be within Greece. We did the same between the IL-76 and C-17, the IAF and IA found the IL-76 to be superior to the C-17.
But you're missing the point. The F-35 was made to fight non-European jets, ie, the J-20 and Su-57 in this case, hell, even AMCA, if the need arises. Do you really think it's important for Canada, Finland, Australia or Japan to see how well the Rafale does against the F-35?
