You do realize that 'real' fighter capabilities like speed, turning radius, radar range/output, service ceiling, etc. are generally classified for Operational Security (OPSEC) reasons.

As for the need to wear a spacesuit when flying, that has to do with the altitude one is flying at, as opposed to what one is flying in, unless the aircraft is specifically modified for a 'shirtsleeves' environment at high altitudes.

Please avoid asking questions that can be answered by doing some basic research.

Exercise your google-fu before asking easily researched questions

It will help in lifting the quality of debate immeasurably...
