I actually like the yf22 better than the f22 and yf23. It looks more like a 21st century aircraft. The production f23 was a sex goddess. Not too mention it would have bested the raptor in range which is more important then post stall nose pointing. Too bad we didn't get both as there was ample moneyDespite all the detailed argument on this thread I think the YF23 is a bit like the P1121 and the Supertiger on this site. We like them because they look so good.
I use this picture taken at random from Google to make the point.
