The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is an American single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft developed exclusively for the United States Air Force.
The result of the USAF’s Advanced Tactical Fighter program, the aircraft was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but also has ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities.
Pre-production technology demonstrator for Advanced Tactical Fighter demonstration/validation phase; two were built.
Single-seat production version, was designated F/A-22A in early 2000s.
