The only thing I see here is that you are giving SEAD every bit of an advantage possible while putting SAM systems in the worse situation possible. It is funny how you attempt to shift the goal of the discussion to the capability of the S-400 vis a vis the F-35 to the discussion of strategic planning which have no bearing at all.Lol your example and argument is ridiculously stupid.
SAM systems ARE stationary when in use!
Show me an S-400 firing on the move.
They are limited in doing one task... detecting tracking and providing target data to missiles once fired.
You still don't get it. It's about initiative and my analogy is perfect. Shooting things down is possible. When tf did I say it's not? Strawman me?
Equating an F-35 and S-400 dynamic with S-125 and F-117 is indicative enough.
It has nothing to do with better or not better and nothing to do with can SAMs shoot down anything. I'm done. This is impossible. As long as readers can understand.
You claim that a SAM cannot both track and destroy aircraft while defending itself against radiation missiles which is false. You claim that SAM systems in the field cannot reload which is again false, you claim that SEAD aircrafts has an unlimited number of missiles it can sling at the defenders which is again false. We can all see how you are actively stacking the deck against SAM systems here.
Say a S-400 is stationary when deployed. Do you know where it would be ? The answer would be no, it takes significant intelligence gather to predict the location of a SAM for a SEAD mission. They don't just waltz into the area with HARMs you know.
