The F-22 Raptor is an advanced tactical fighter that was conceived to replace America’s aging F-15 Strike Eagle. It utilizes stealth technology, and to date is the worlds most technically advanced air superiority fighter. Built by Lockheed Martin, the F-22 is a master of maneuverability, doing things once thought to be impossible by an aircraft. Carrying the majority of its weaponry in internal bays located in the aircraft’s underbelly, the Raptor was designed to carry six compressed carriage medium range missiles and two short range missiles. Watching the aircraft maneuver in the ways in which it does is simply astonishing, especially when you consider that this machine costs about $339 million per aircraft, that’s over 300 Bugatti Veyron’s ladies and gentlemen. With the capability to basically turn while in a flat spin, the F-22 is almost something more suited to a science fiction movie than to our own military. Simply put, this is one combat aircraft that I am very glad is on our side.
