Built around "first look, first shot, first kill" design, the F/A-22 Raptor is set to become the Air Dominance Fighter of the 21st century. Undetectable at long-range, this super-jet is the apex of 5th generation fighter technology. Packing an array of deadly missile systems, the Raptor blends dogfighting skill with precision-strike ground attack capability and can intercept and strike any target with near impunity.
In the 1980s, as Cold War tensions heightened and US defense spending increased, the Air Force decided it needed a replacement fighter for the F15 Eagle. The Advanced Tactical Fighter program was born, and the largest, most expensive program of its kind hatched the Raptor. Follow the 25-year development of America's deadliest fighter and see how stealth, super-cruise, and integrated avionics combine to create a fighter without equal.
