    There is no in between with you. It is either super maneuver or flying brick. By that measure than F15, F16, F/A18, Eurofighter, are all flying bricks. F14 must have been a flying Brickyard.

    They will deploy at Eielson, Alaska in Apr'20. That'll give them plenty of oppurtunities to 'dance with Su35’.
