In a dogfight, this plane will lose badly, especially against newer 4th and 5th gen fighters. Advances in radar tech will most likely render stealth almost useless by the 20's or early 30's, if not before.
The 35 is an answer to a question nobody is asking. It doesn't do anything well and is a "fifth generation" in name only. As you stated, poor range, high weight - I suspect it will not be all that cost effective in the long run either.
While I think it will handle dogfights with 4th generation fighters, it will likely have problems dogfighting other 5th Gen fighters.
Cruise speed is low, ferry range is low - while it is lighter than the Raptor, it's slower by 500 knots.
