The F-22 Raptor is the Air Force’s newest fighter aircraft. Its combination of stealth, supercruise, maneuverability, and integrated avionics, coupled with improved supportability, represents an exponential leap in fighter aircraft capabilities.

The Raptor performs both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. The F-22 cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft.

A combination of sensor capability, integrated avionics, situational awareness, and weapons provides air superiority against any threat.

The F-22 possesses a sophisticated sensor suite allowing the pilot to track, identify, shoot and eliminate air-to-air threats before being detected.

Significant advances in cockpit design and sensor fusion improve the pilot’s situational awareness.

The F-22 has a significant capability to attack surface targets. Munitions are stored internally and use on-board avionics for navigation and delivery.

Advances in low-observable technologies, known as stealth provide significantly improved survivability and lethality against any threat.

The F-22 engines produce more thrust than any current fighter engine.

The combination of sleek aerodynamic design and increased thrust allows the F-22 to cruise at supersonic airspeeds (greater than 1.5 Mach) without using afterburner — a characteristic known as supercruise.

Supercruise greatly expands the F-22 ‘s operating envelope in both speed and range over current fighters, which must use fuel-consuming afterburner to operate at supersonic speeds.

The sophisticated F-22 aerodesign, advanced flight controls, thrust vectoring, and high thrust-to-weight ratio provide the capability to outmaneuver all current and projected aircraft.
