We Now Have Clear Proof Why the F-22 Raptor Would Dominate over Russia or Anyone

The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF).

The result of the USAF’s Advanced Tactical Fighter program, the aircraft was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but also has a ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities.

The prime contractor, Lockheed Martin, built most of the F-22’s airframe and weapons systems and did its final assembly, while Boeing provided the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems.

The aircraft was variously designated F-22 and F/A-22 before it formally entered service in December 2005 as the F-22A.

After a protracted development and despite operational issues, the USAF considers the F-22 critical to its tactical air power and says that the aircraft is unmatched by any known or projected fighter.
