The Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation fighter aircraft that uses stealth technology. It was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities that include ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence.
Highly detailed 1/48 scale assembly model kit of the Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor, a fifth-generation fighter aircraft (sometimes referred to as generation-five or "gen 5" fighter) currently in squadron service with the United States Air Force. As of 2009, the Raptor is the only known fifth-generation fighter deployed for active service by any nation in the world. The Raptor is a highly advanced air-superiority fighter aircraft that encapsulates the latest in aircraft design technologies that include stealth, supercruise, thrust-vectoring, and the highly advanced AESA radar system, just to name a few. As a fighter aircraft, the Raptor is capable of out maneuvering any generation-four fighter aircrafts in service today and thus seizing complete control of enemy air space. In addition, the Raptor is also a versatile platform that can perform a variety of ground attack and electronic warfare missions. The Raptor is considered by many the single greatest fighter aircraft ever produced to date, and until the Raptor encounters another gen-5 fighter sometimes in the future, it will remained a dominant force in the skies over present and future combat theaters for the U.S. Air Force. This beautifully detailed Hasegawa 1/48 scale assembly kit comes with decals for U.S.A.F. 1FW 94FS "HAT IN THE RING" 1FW Commander Code: FF 1FW 2009. 368 parts.
