There may be cooler things than vectored thrust - but not that many.
What LL said...
The F-22 has a single axis (up/down) vectored thrust. While the multi-axis mechanism IS nice to look at, the increased complexity and weight penalty is probably not worth it.
Sonoboy...you may want to re-think that after you see this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GdfnTLKcvMApparently the Russians with their Su-37 thought it was worth it.
After I started watching the video I realized I had seen it before. True, it's an impressive display at most any airshow, but do these abilities bring anything new to modern air combat? I'm certainly not a pilot, but I would like to hear the input from someone who knows of the valid tactics utilizing these features.
Here's some additional reading on thrust vectoring, and why some consider it non-essential in certain circumstances...http://theaviationist.com/2013/02/21/raptor-vs-typhoon-us/
