3. Use your sensor and missile superiority to get the first shot

If you complete the previous steps well, you will be the first guy to get nose on. Don't pass up a valid shot.

4. Be careful when you try to bug out

The F-35's energy addition rate is average, and it's top end speed is below average, so bugging out can't be an afterthought. Remember: you only have one engine, and old fighter pilots have a saying about stealth technology -- it doesn't work against bullets.
