It did but humans were not allowed to think outside the box. Pilot was just there to promote the project.in terms of a dog fight didn't tests already reveal that AI is more capable then humans?
Maybe a combination of human pilot completely assisted by AI will be better then either alone.
For example I have heard a story from TEI CEO Mahmut Akşit yesterday.
He was talking how they created Şimşek target drone turbojet engines and delivered 12 of them but never received new orders.
Because our smart soldiers were tying a foam decoy behind the target drone and by painting it with radar reflective paint instead they were saving even the seemingly cheap target drone. Good luck to idiotic Bard or Bing AI outsmarting humans in real world.
