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 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 USAF considers the F-22 critical to its tactical air power, and says that the aircraft is unmatched by any known or projected fighter. The Raptor’s combination of stealth, aerodynamic performance, and situational awareness gives the aircraft unprecedented air combat capabilities.
The high cost of the aircraft ( $150 million ), a lack of clear air-to-air missions due to delays in Russian and Chinese fighter programs, a ban on exports, and development of the more versatile F-35 led to the end of F-22 production. A final procurement tally of 187 operational production aircraft was established in 2009, and the last F-22 was delivered to the USAF in 2012.

It's great to be on the winning team.
1 su50 off the coast of the us = 1 less the us:)))
Jay ho INDIAN AIR FORCE
Title say: Breaking sound barrer… fake video
its doing what the old russian su 27 can do,nothing new.its just overhyped flying duck,lol
Best aircraft by far
F22 better than f35. You agree? Or russian sukhoi better?
Is like a fucking UFo. Crazy torque!
If I was the president then I would only work on the jets that replace the harrier and the F-15 and F-16 but not the A-10 or the F-18s but I just hope that Trump gets raptor production starting again
By far the best fighter in the air. Sorry Russia, keep trying.
the Pakistani JF 17 is better than this junk
What a waste of US money. Junk all the way.
30 years a go the swedish Saab Viggen JA 37 did that much better
Although the F35 is way over budget, I've heard from pilots that it blows away any other airplane made by the USA. I've heard that it can take out F16' and F15's from over 100 miles away before they knew what hit them. I think President Trump is right to real in the costs, but I don't think we should throw away the baby with the bath water. JMVHO.
please have you some orther combat footages from sarajevo civil war?
super sonic.super- bombes .. guerre et bombes en iraq?f-22 moderne guerre petrole?en mashine au guerre -bravoooo?non!!pour tuer?nooooooo
The sukhoi wont have an opportunity to use that fancy pants semi-stall thrust vectoring technique.I promise
I love reading all the comments on here thinking they know anything about the F-22, after I have been working on them the last 10 years.
North korea : ……..
LOOK AT THAT YAW CONTROL.
I don't think the f_22 is an "extremely powerful" aircraft because if it was " extremely powerful" he will not be easily destroyed by the Dassault Rafale which cost 50 millions dollars less.
I don't know but it seems like air shows lost their Mojo since the seventies and eighties. it feels like its safe. the only one that still got it though are the air shows in Florida with the blue angel ripping sun shade umbrellas out of the ground as they fly over the beach. hard to believe this is what came from barnstorming.
the f23 black widow superior to this crap
nothing insane here, the SU-35 do better than this for less than half the price of F-22.
From another Planet !! Wow !! Go Martin !!
THANKS YOU FOR PROTECTING US
Just wanna see the pilots faces! R they humans?!
Dios mio!! Con esas máquinas estamos perdidos.
Along with the F35, the ugliest aircraft to ever fly. No character.
Are there any plane in existence that you can grey out from just straight line acceleration? Just eye sucking speed?
good bie China.
America should never had made the call to cancel production of this plane and make the shit f-35 instead
