The F-22 Raptor is a airsuperiority fighter and twin-engine fifth-generation conceived in the United States during the 1990s that uses stealth technology . It was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter , but has additional capabilities that allow you to perform missions that include ground attack , electronic warfare , semi lift, basic static propulsion vertical, capacity horizontal static propulsion, basic static powered back and signals intelligence . Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the contractor responsible for leading and most of the structure , weapon systems and final assembly of the F-22. The partner program is Boeing Integrated Defense Systems and provides the wings , the rear of the fuselage , integration of avionics , and all systems training for pilots and maintenance personnel. The first prototype, designated YF-22 first flew on September 29 of 1990 .
The aircraft was designated both F-22 F / A-22 during the years prior to its entry into service in the United States Air Force in December 2005 as the F-22A. Despite a prolonged and costly development, US Air Force considers the F-22 as a key component in future tactical air power in his country, and claims that the aircraft is not comparable to any known or projected fighter , while Lockheed Martin claims that the combination of stealth, speed, agility, precision and situational awareness Raptor capabilities combined with air-to-air and air-to-surface generally make it one of the best fighters in the world currently. The Air Marshal Angus Houston , Chief of the Armed Forces of Australia , said in 2004 that "the F-22 will be the most outstanding fighter plane.
The high unit cost of the aircraft -356 000 000 dollars in total investment (2009) and 150 million by the individual production (2009) - excessive maintenance time -30 hours for each hour of flight-, lack of a clear mission air-air due to long delays in programs fifth generation fighter Russia , India and China , the US ban on Raptor export to other countries, and the development of cheaper and more versatile F-35 Lightning II led to calls for end production of the F-22. In April 2009 the United States Department of Defense proposed to cease to make new orders, subject to Congressional approval, for a final figure obtaining 187 Raptor fighters. The Senate and House of Representatives the United States approved in July 2009 their respective versions of the bill budget 2010 without funding for the production of more F-22.
The P-51 Mustang is a fighter US designed by North American Aviation , which is used during the Second World War . It is developed to meet the urgent need for additional hunters British in 1940 during the Battle of Britain . While performance at low altitude due to its high aerodynamic finesse, Allison engine, the supercharger system is not changed, initially limit its use as an air superiority fighter. Following the adaptation of the excellent British engine Rolls Royce Merlin , the camera will escort the aircraft needed by the United States to support their large raids strategic bombers day above the Germany . In early 1944 , it has a decisive role in obtaining the air superiority that allows the invasion of Europe. It is one of the big three American hunters from the Second World War by numbers, with 15,586 copies produced . Its main advantages are its speed and especially his great range. Many consider him the best fighter propeller of all time. The name of the plane is given by the British, the Americans who first called Apache before adopting the British name .
The North American F-86 Sabre was the first fighter jet wings and arrows built by the United States just after the Second World War . Very successful, this machine was built several thousand copies and used by thirty different countries. His confrontation with the MiG-15 during the Korean War is a famous episode in the history of aerial combat.
At the end of 1944 , North American had started working on a project to provide a jet fighter to the US Navy , which gave birth to the FJ Fury . When the USAF in turn issued a tender for a day fighter capable of reaching 965 km / h, the company offered a response based on the same project. The first wind tunnel tests showed, however, that its right wings prevented the XF-86 to the intended speed. Work by the Germans during World War II were just beginning to be distributed to United States , which allowed engineers to completely redesign the wing, giving it a 35 degree arrow.
