Books about the F-22 Raptor Jet Fighter, a Stealth Fighter of a New Breed.

Books about the New Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor Stealth Fighter jet.  This F-22 Air Dominance, Air Superiority jet fighter is equipped with a feature called Supercruise.  This is where the plane can cruise as supersonic speeds  without using the fuel hungry afterburners.  Supercruise will allow the F-22 to jump on its enemy very quickly and when combined with the F-22 's new generation  stealth technology and avionics, the enemy will never see what has hit him.  Another feature of the F-22 is that it has vectorable thrust enabling it to maintain control in even the highest angle of attacks allowing the Raptor to maneuver very quickly.  Additionally, the cockpit is made of a totally new electronics technology.  The F-22 is capable of working in groups with data link, radar imagery and other information to be shared between the pilots of the different aircraft in its group.  This enables the Raptor Pilot to do his job of fighting while greatly minimizing the radio chatter.  This aircraft has many other features, too many to mention on this page.  Read a book, watch a movie and built a model and you will become a F-22 Raptor expert very quickly. Look at the F-22 Raptor Pictures on this page and see which photo looks the best.  The F-22 Raptor was previously called the YF-22 until December 2005 when it entered into service with the United States Air Force as the F-22A

F-22 Raptor Information
The F-22A Raptor is the Air Force's newest fighter aircraft. Its combination of stealth, Supercruise, maneuverability variability, and integrated avionics, coupled with improved supportability, represents an exponential leap in combat capabilities. The Raptor performs both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions allowing full realization of operational concepts vital to the 21st century Air Force Missions.

The F-22A , a critical component of the Global Strike Task Force, is designed to project air dominance, rapidly and at great distances and defeat threats attempting to deny access to our nation's Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps. The F-22A cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft.

A combination of sensor capability, integrated avionics, situational awareness, and weapons provides first-kill opportunity against threats. The F-22A possesses a sophisticated sensor suite allowing the pilot to track, identify, shoot and kill air-to-air threats before being detected. Significant advances in cockpit design and sensor fusion improve the pilot's situational awareness. In the air-to-air configuration the Raptor carries six AIM-120 AMRAAMs and two AIM-9 Sidewinders.

The F-22A has a significant capability to attack surface targets. In the air-to-ground configuration the aircraft can carry two 1,000-pound GBU-32 Joint Direct Attack Munitions internally and will use on-board avionics for navigation and weapons delivery support. In the future air-to-ground capability will be enhanced with the addition of an upgraded radar and up to eight small diameter bombs. The Raptor will also carry two AIM-120s and two AIM-9s in the air-to-ground configuration.

Advances in low-observable technologies provide significantly improved survivability and lethality against air-to-air and surface-to-air threats. The F-22A brings stealth into the day, enabling it to not only protect itself but other assets.

The F-22A engines produce more thrust than any current fighter engine. The combination of sleek aerodynamic design and increased thrust allows the F-22A to cruise at supersonic airspeeds (greater than 1.5 Mach) without using afterburner -- a characteristic known as Supercruise. Supercruise greatly expands the F-22A '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-22A aerodynamics, advanced flight controls, thrust vectoring, and high thrust-to-weight ratio provide the capability to outmaneuver all current and projected aircraft. The F-22A design has been extensively tested and refined aerodynamically during the development process.

The F-22A's characteristics provide a synergistic effect ensuring F-22A lethality against all advanced air threats. The combination of stealth, integrated weapons systems and Supercruise drastically shrinks surface-to-air missile engagement envelopes and minimizes enemy capabilities to track and engage the F-22A . The combination of reduced observability and Supercruise accentuates the advantage of surprise in a tactical environment.
The F-22A will have better reliability and maintainability than any fighter aircraft in history.  Increased F-22A reliability and maintainability pays off in less manpower required to fix the aircraft and the ability to operate more efficiently and at a lower operational cost.

The Advanced Tactical Fighter entered the Demonstration and Validation phase in 1986. The prototype aircraft (YF-22 and YF-23) both completed their first flights in late 1990. Ultimately the YF-22 was selected as best of the two and the engineering and manufacturing development effort began in 1991 with development contracts to Lockheed/Boeing (airframe) and Pratt & Whitney (engines). EMD included extensive subsystem and system testing as well as flight testing with nine aircraft at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The first EMD flight was in 1997 and at the completion of its flight test life this aircraft was used for live-fire testing.
The program received approval to enter low rate initial production in 2001. Initial operational and test evaluation by the Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center was successfully completed in 2004. Based on maturity of design and other factors the program received approval for full rate production in 2005. Air Education and Training Command and Air Combat Command are the primary Air Force organizations flying the F-22A .  The aircraft designation was the F/A-22 for a short time before being renamed F-22A in December 2005.
