Well in my opinion, the F-22 Raptor is better and more advanced technologically than the F-35 Lightning. And according to my previous research, the F-22 is equivalent in power to five F-15 Eagles. However, the F-35 cannot even match a F-16.

In my opinion that makes it worse, doesn't matter and/or is a lie.

I think you screwed up a bit here. The former statement has nothing to do with the latter one.
F-35 is super relevant, making latest News headlines and something Russia and China want to get hold of, F-22 is yesterday's News. This makes it extinct in superiority as it's no longer even in the discussion other than an old-school fighter jet from a time when fighting by planes was the way wars were fought.
F-35 had a super relevant crash in Japan: https://www.defensenews.com/global/asia-pacific/2019/04/12/f-35a-crash-japans-defense-minister-addresses-security-concerns-procurement-plans/
This makes it better. It's so relevant and better at crashing.
Yes, but the F-35 cannot match the F-22 as a air superiority fighter, as proven by /nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/f-22-vs-f-35-which-stealth-fighter-wins-shootout-41652. militarymachine.com/f-22-raptor-vs-f-35-lightning-ii/also proves that the Raptor has more advantages than the Lightning II. From another perspective, the Lightning II was designed as a multi-role combat aircraft, however it cannot even match a much older jet, so it can be considered, to some degree, as a failure.

www.businessinsider.sg/f-35-vs-f-15-dogfights-2018-3/?r=US&IR=T(This site is to show how bad a military machine the F-35 can sometimes be)
If F-22 is upgrading, that would mean it's a different vehicle to the one being debated here. The 'is' in the resolution was at the time of making it, not what it will be post-debate creation.
F-22 needs upgrading because it's so bad. F-35 isn't designed to fight, so you're comparing them in different leagues.
Neither are actually 'better' when we consider the difference purposes. F-35 can cruise and comfortably fly in ways F-22 can't and this is because it's nto designed to fight in the same brutally fast way but to survey more.
As for 'improving and upgrading' the F-22 is near obsolete with the F-35 having far more upgrades and national backing from Israel and a couple of other nations.
So, even in that regard, you lose.
Vote Reported: Scott_Manning // Mod Action: Removed
Points awarded: 3 points to pro for arguments, 1 point to con for arguments
RFD: I absolutely agree with Ramshutu. I would also like to say that I think Con screwed up a bit at the better at crashing part.
Reason for mod action: (1) The voter must assess the content of the debate and only the debate, any reasoning based on arguments made or information given outside of the debate rounds is unacceptable. This includes reasoning that stems from already-placed votes, comment sections, and separate forums. Votes that impermissibly factor in outside content and which are reported will be removed. In this case, the voter relies on Ramshutu's vote, which is forbidden. (2) Finally, the conduct point is not explained. In order to award conduct, the voter must:
Provide specific references to instances of poor conduct which occurred in the debate
Demonstrate how this poor conduct was either excessive, unfair, or in violation of mutually agreed upon rules of conduct pertaining to the text of the debate
Compare each debater's conduct from the debate
Misconduct is excessive when it is extremely frequent and/or when it causes the debate to become incoherent or extremely toxic. In the case of awarding conduct points solely on the basis of forfeits, there is an exception to these steps: a debater may award conduct points solely for forfeited rounds, but only if one debater forfeited half or more of their rounds or if the voter also awards argument points (or explains their decision not to award argument points in a manner which meets the argument points voting standards).

How did you manage to publish nothing at all?
Better at crashing?! Are you feeling alright? You need a doctor?
Forgive me if I put up too many sites.
I like this topic because it has to do with public policy and is a subject I've never really researched. I bet the questions involved in fighter jet design and engineering are fascinating. If I was debating this, however, I'd be tempted to go after the weakness of "better than." Better for who? Not better for ISIS fighters or Yemeni villagers. And aren't we comparing apples and oranges? The F-35 is an air/ground attack vehicle, the F-22 is an air/air attack vehicle. The F-22 is designed to beat a plane like the F-35.
A plane with 2005 avionics vs one with mid to late 2010s avionics?
