Our F-15Cs have suffered catastrophic vertical stabilator failures, forcing us to limit the operational flight envelope for our front-line air superiority fighter. Two-thirds of our entire F-15C fleet now average over 21 years and the stresses on that airframe will only increase.
The stealthy, next generation F-22 air superiority fighter aircraft will fly complex, integrated missions ranging from single ship operation to large force coalition strike actions.
Weapon Military Branch Total Program Cost F-22 Air Force $63 billion RAH-66 Comanche Army $43 billion Crusader Army $13 billion New attack sub Navy $65.2 billion V-22 Marine Corps $37.3 billion CVN-77 Navy $5.2 billion LHD-8 Navy $1.2 billion Weapon Role F-22 Air superiority fighter RAH-66 Comanche Stealth attack helicopter Crusader Self-propelled artillery New attack sub Offensive submarine V-22 Troop transport CVN-77 Nuclear aircraft carrier LHD-8 Helicopter carrier
The Air Force plans to buy 333 F-22s to replace the F-15 air superiority fighter. Congress provided funding for the first two F-22s in FY 1999.
He says the stealthy F-22 is "supremely unnecessary," even thought it is the first air superiority fighter the Air Force has developed in a quarter-century.
It served as the primary air superiority fighter for both the Navy and Air Force, but it also served roles in ground-attack and aerial reconnaissance and, once taken out of active service, was designated the QF-4 where it flew as aerial targets.
"The F-35A was not designed to be an air superiority fighter, but the pilots interviewed conveyed the picture of a jet that will more than hold its own in that environment--even with its current G and maneuver restrictions," Venable wrote.
With the great uncertainty over the F-35's capabilities, costs of acquisition and operation, its reliability and readiness as our only fighter -- especially in the Arctic --combined with so few in number, it is only prudent to envision also having a true air superiority fighter that has the range to deal with potential air- and seaborne threats.
However, it appears that nobody has told Mr Fox that the F35 is a strike fighter and not an air superiority fighter.
Lockheed Martin Although the US government last year opted to halt production of the Lockheed Martin F-22 without approving an international sale of the air superiority fighter, the Raptor is making a welcome return to the show.
A SUKHOI air superiority fighter jet of the Indian Air Force on Monday crashed at Jetha Ki Dhani near Pokhran firing ranges in Rajasthan.
