I understand your point, but there is some apples vs oranges in the comparison. The Tiger was slow relative to Shermans or T-34's. It couldn't effectively disengage a fight by turning tail and running. Also, Tigers weren't stealthy - everyone knew where they were, the problem was destroying them. F-22's are fast and stealthy - hard to engage.
A numerical advantage is far less important if you can't bring weapons to bear.
Points granted. Disengaging at will is a powerful option, although in force projection, the likely scenario for combat use of the F-22, turning tail and running has to be considered a loss.
Neither the US nor the Russians have faced a credible air to air threat in a generation, while aircraft acquisition prices have increased exponentially and procurement has dropped. Luckily for both of them, any likely opposition has been influenced to follow the same protocol of purchasing a small number of wowiegeewhiz fighters. Iran is the only country to have (maybe) tried the cheap and plentiful route with their local F-5 developments.
