What if Fighters had miniature medals painted on?

Like the one seen in picrel but smaller and right below the canopy. Just for valor/combat medals. Wouldn't it be cool to have your MoH miniature painted on your jet? Yeah. Modern jets lack soul (cool liveries, etc).

Career

So I (20m) cannot decide if I should go back to school and get my degree to be a fighter pilot after dropping out and working for the last year and a half, or if I should stay working and focus on my business I started. I love jets and I know I’d be disappointed never trying to be a pilot, but I love my friends and family a lot and would hate to leave all of them for so long. I just can’t decide what to do.

How effective would f16s be in Ukraine

If Ukraine were to receive fighter jets from nato would they be more much more effective than what they already have or would there still be contest for air superiority?

Can you identify this jet?

This is from the game iFighter 2 The Pacific 1942.

First and foremost: WHAT KIND OF PLANE FLIES WITH IT'S BODY "FACING BACKWARDS"??? Second, it has a large streak of flame erupting from it's back. And during gameplay, it has a turret mounted on it's top to fire at you.

The F-35 in a dogfight...

Is it true that the F-35 is inferior in a dogfight compared to a "gen4" fighter jet like the F-16 or the F-18, and if so will the Air Force and the Navy still buy those older platforms for this specific task?
