I think there could be some validity to it. My understanding is that the plane really is not a dog fighter and was not really designed to get into what the fighter jocks call the "merge." It was designed to fire off standoff missiles like the AIM-120. The plane is not small. The max weight for an F-16 is around 30,000 pounds I believe the F-35 is almost double that.
