Supersonic, Stealth, Fighter - The F/A-22 Raptor Has It All

The F/A-22 Raptor is a powerful aircraft in the US arsenal.  It is designed for both stealth and fighter capabilities thus it can attack the enemy without itself being detected.  The F/A-22 Raptor is the world’s first air-to-air stealth fighter.  It is designed to be undetectable at long ranges and deadly in air combat.  Pilots have unmatched capabilities and maneuverability in the air and can strike targets with precision accuracy.

Originally developed in the 1980s, the Raptor was manufactured to counter the threat from the Soviet Union during the Cold War.  It has a wingspan of 44.5 feet and a length of 62 feet.  At its top speed, this aircraft can reach Mach 1.8.  The F/A-22 is the first American fighter plane that can supercruise.  This means it can fly at supersonic speeds without using an afterburner, which allows the aircraft to consume significantly less fuel and can fly faster for longer periods of times.

The Raptor is so stealthy, that it appears to be the size of a bumblebee when detected on radar.  It incorporates sawtooth edges and doors, making it difficult for radar to pick up on its movement.  The F/A-22 Raptor is unique because it can carry missiles inside the fuselage.  This makes it extremely difficult to reflect any radar waves and makes the plane virtually invisible.
