Your opinion on jets in bf4 everyone?

Just for illustration these two gameplays.
Battlefield 4 | Paracel Storm Conquest Large | F-35 Stealth Jet Gameplay - 1ron-tjunfisk - YouTube
Battlefield 4: 37-1 Attack Jet Gameplay - YouTube

First one being an f35 gameplay, the second a frogfoot gameplay.
So basically both pilots are well know and very very good. Tjunfisk hasnt played a lot recently, so he might be out of practise, whereas cg-matt plays a lot, mostly competitive. Compare the results!
Of course you will always get more kills and vehicle destroys in an attack jet, but there is some serious imbalance between the effectiveness of stealth and attack jets, which is not a result of the attack jets being overpowered, no way they are pretty well balanced. The main gun is not as powerful as in bf3, but you can still kill armor in one pass -> how it should be.
The stealth jets however seem extremely useless. The gun is extremely weak, also against air targets; you see tjunfisk doing only like 50 damage to a scout with very good aim. I am pretty sure it will not even be possible to kill air targets in one full burst of the gun (note that the gun of the ground attack jets shredds through air targets). The heatseakers are also useless as they do only 40 damage in two hits and two missiles is all you get.
Furthermore a friend of mine on battlelog told me that he was talking to cg-matt and he told him that the a10 actually can fly higher g manouvers than the f35 (it is the worst jet of all the jets in the game in terms of manouverability and will probably lose every dogfight if the enemy is skilled).
I see some serious balancing issues here, because i would have liked to be one jet superior vs gruond targets, the other one against air targets, but this is not the case. One seems useless, the other one is decent against air and good against ground targets.
Edit: yes i am upset. They give you those new babies called stealth jets and then they are useless ? :(
Edit 2....reference attack jet video by tjunfisk
Battlefield 4 | 46-0 Killstreak - A-10 Attack Jet Gameplay | Paracel Storm - 1ron-tjunfisk - YouTube

attack jets > stealth jets in EVERYTHING other than dogfighting. And if the stealth jets wins the dogfight, it takes him 10-15 seconds to kill the attack jets. I think it might actually shoot frozen peas.

Attack jets rip everything apart in seconds.

Dogfighting is impossible due to the retarded FOV

Quite unhappy with the balance, but oh well...BRB ATTACK JET RAPE

DICE needs to buff them in terms of their damage output. It takes them about 3 full seconds to kill an attack jet with the main gun.
The attack jets are pretty well balanced, i only would like to see a nerf in manouverability down to 8-9 g, while the stealth jets shold stay as they are. Oh yeah and the f35 should not be in the game ffs. It is not an air superiority fighter, the ff22 should be in for the us side

other than the fact that a full burst of your cannon only takes away 40 health of an mbt yes.

the camera follows you wherever you go, in a weird spot, so that you get disorientated really quickly

just compare the third-person view of those guys, with bf3 dogfights. you'll see the difference

I would rather take one of those CAS jets into a dogfight, every time. An observant CAS pilot is never going to let a spawning fighter get behind him, he will just head-on overpower the fighter before they even make it into the AO.

Would it be at all possible to make all jets deal the same gun damage to each other? I mean its not realistic but it is fair.
