The worlds most advance Fighter Aircraft. In use by the United States Air Force. It is a Stealth Fighter with Mach 2+ capabilities. It looks like a F-15 Strike Eagle but is nowhere close to it. The F-22 Raptor has the ability of Vector Thrusting to perform maneuvers that no other plane in the world can do. All its weapons are carried inside it's body to provide better stealth, but still has the ability to have outside weapons stations. If you are on the receiving end of this aircraft you will be dead before you know that you were engaged by the USAF.
The F-22 Raptor is performing CAPs over Washington DC.

Developed by Lockheed Martin/Boeing, the F-22 Raptor is the United States' premier jet fighter. It has extremely advanced dogfighting and BVR (beyond visual range) capabilities. The F-22 also incorporates thrust vectoring (it can move the exhaust to improve maneuverability), stealth, and a radar so advanced that it can track and engage most other aircraft before they even know anything is happening.
That F-22 Raptor shot down the MIG-29 before the MIG pilot even knew anyone was there!
