It was way ahead of everything else in its day! What's more it was BRITISH!
Sadly I never had the opportunity to fly either in it or against, so I'm certainly not going to argue with you. But aside from the fact that it was Another British Worldbeater!, in what ways would you consider it to have been way ahead of contemporaries like the Mirage III, F-104, Mig-21 and F-4? Was there anything particular that made it a more advanced or useful weapon?
