I believe this data is quite old as it lacks SU-35, Chinese 5th Gen

What are they?
Simple, means the data above is fabricated. For instance, F-15 RCS is most probably not what is shown above, i deny it. Flankers are known to be such bad machines when it comes to RCS but not eagles. Especially, F-15SE, was supposed to be a very low RCS machine right?

The figures are indeed a bit outdated not going to say fake but let dig for more info.
