F-22 Raptor

F-22 Raptor

Dominating the Skies. Overwhelming the Threat.

This is the era of the F-22 Raptor – the world’s premier 5th Generation fighter.

The F-22 is the only fighter capable of simultaneously conducting air-to-air and air-to-ground combat missions with near impunity. This is accomplished with a never-before-seen standard of survivability even in the face of sophisticated airborne and ground-based threats.

In addition to being America’s premier air-superiority fighter, the F-22 evolved from its original concept to become a lethal, survivable and flexible multimission fighter. By taking advantage of emerging technologies, the F-22 has emerged as a superior platform for many diverse missions including intelligence gathering, surveillance, reconnaissance and electronic attack.

The Raptor is operational today, protecting our homeland and combat ready for worldwide deployment. F-22s are already assigned to multiple bases across the country. Currently, there are:

  • Two squadrons of F-22s assigned to Air Combat Command’s 1st Fighter Wing at Langley AFB, Va.  
  • Two squadrons assigned to the 3rd Wing at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska
  • One squadron at 49th Fighter Wing at Holloman AFB, N. M.  
  • A Virginia Air National Guard associate squadron at Langley AFB
  • One Air Force Reserve Command associate squadron at both Elmendorf and Holloman
  • F-22 Raptors assigned to the Hawaii Air National Guard, along with an active-duty associate unit at Hickam AFB, Hawaii.

Training for Raptor pilots and maintainers takes place at Tyndall AFB, Fla., flight testing is conducted at Edwards AFB, Calif., and operational testing and tactics development is performed at Nellis AFB, Nev.

The F-22 Fleet is Complete

The final F-22 Raptor was delivered to the U.S. Air Force on May 2, 2012, completing the world’s only operational 5th Generation fleet.

The Last Delivery

The last two F-22 Raptors departed Lockheed Martin’s Marietta facility on Saturday, May 5, to join other F-22s in the Air Force’s 3rd Wing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.

An Enduring Advantage

The F-22's all-aspect stealth and high speed/high altitude give the U.S. forces and allies an enduring advantage.

Operational Today

The F-22 is proven in worldwide deployment.

Mission-Ready Sustainment

The support team provides higher readiness rates, faster response and lower life-cycle costs.

Extreme Fighter Agility

The Raptor's superior aerodynamic performance gives it an asymmetric advantage.

Supercruise Speeds

Lethality and survivability are enhanced by the F-22's ability to operate for extended periods at speeds greater than Mach 1.5.

Collier Award Winning

The F-22 demonstrates precision attack capabilities, defeating threats in the air and on the ground.
