The World’s First Fifth-Generation Fighter
Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor
The F-22 Raptor was the ultimate winner of the ATF competition against the Northrop YF-23. It was a more capable dogfigher, putting it a step ahead of the -23 in the USAF’s mind. The first F-22s entered service in 2005, and through 2012, almost 200 examples were built. F-22s have extremely effective all-aspect stealth, allowing them to engage and destroy threats before even appearing on the enemy radar screens. In one famous example, a F-22 intercepted a pair of Iranian F-4s and flew under them without being detected at all. Only when the F-22 radioed to the F-4s did they realize that they had been intercepted.
About the replica
I’m really proud about this replication, particularly the engines. In my opinion, it nails the tradespace of appearance - part count - performance. I feel like I did a good job rendering the Raptor - particularly the engines - in a comparatively low part count.
Additionally, this F-22 performs extremely well. If you unlock the second tail vane, it is a very maneuverable dogfighter. Additionally, it has can almost supercruise without afterburner, and with burners lit it can reach mach 2 at altitude. Thanks to the large number of wing parts, it also glides at about 45m/s. In all, it’s an extremely fun craft that I’m sure you will enjoy as much as I did.
