In the cockpit there is a switch which allows you to turn the after burners on and off!

TheLockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptoris a single-seat,twin-enginefifth-generationsupermaneuverablefighter aircraftthat usesstealth technology. It was designed primarily as anair superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities that includeground attack,electronic warfare, andsignals intelligenceroles.[5]Lockheed Martin Aeronauticsis the prime contractor and is responsible for the majority of the airframe, weapon systems and final assembly of the F-22. Program partnerBoeing Defense, Space & Securityprovides the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems.

The aircraft was variously designatedF-22andF/A-22during the years prior to formally entering USAF service in December 2005 as theF-22A. Despite a protracted and costly development period, theUnited States Air Forceconsiders the F-22 a critical component of U.S. tactical air power, and claims that the aircraft is unmatched by any known or projected fighter.[6]Lockheed Martin claims that the Raptor's combination of stealth, speed, agility, precision and situational awareness, combined with air-to-air and air-to-ground combat capabilities, makes it the best overall fighter in the world today.[7]Air Chief MarshalAngus Houston, former Chief of theAustralian Defence Force, said in 2004 that the "F-22 will be the most outstanding fighter plane ever built."[8]

The high cost of the aircraft, a lack of clear air-to-air combat missions because of delays in the Russian and Chinese fifth-generation fighter programs, a U.S. ban on Raptor exports, and the ongoing development of the planned cheaper and more versatileF-35resulted in calls to end F-22 production.[N 1]In April 2009, theU.S. Department of Defenseproposed to cease placing new orders, subject to Congressional approval, for a final procurement tally of 187 operational aircraft.[10]TheNational Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010lacked funding for further F-22 production. The final F-22 rolled off the assembly line on 13 December 2011 during a ceremony atDobbins Air Reserve Base.[11]

Starting in 2010, the F-22 was plagued by problems with its pilot oxygen systems which contributed to one crash and death of a pilot. In 2011 the fleet was grounded for four months before resuming flight operations, but reports of oxygen systems issues have continued.[12]In July 2012, the Air Force announced that the hypoxia-like symptoms experienced were caused by a faulty valve in the pilots' pressure vest; the valve was replaced and changes to the filtration system were also made.

Anyone who says the f22 is the worst you VERY wrong.

1. has working stealth
2. has a longer range radar and gun then the eurofighter typhoon
3. can go SUPERSONIC without the use of afterburners
4. pretty mucgh ALL planes don't know a f22 is in the area until it's literally DIRECTLY above it

So if you think the f22 is the worst, think agin ;)
f22's will be blowing down your door in no time

Realistically this is one of the worst aircraft the US has seen. It is extremely vulnerable to small arms due to it having near to no armor due to that it is unable to fly at low altitude and one has never seen action in Iraq or Afghanistan which is why the production of it was cancelled. Not only are these it's downsides but it also an extremely expensive aircraft and America would be better of mass producing aircraft such as the F16, F14 and more -- stealth is not a priority at the moment although the F-35 may fullfill what the US want regarding stealth (despite it being a very expensive project -- $1 trillion) and the huge amount of problems it has experience during tests and how unstable the aircraft is (not aerodynamically, it is designed to do that. -- computers).

In conclusion I must say the production of the F-22 and F-35 is fairly counter-productive. Long live the A-10, F-16 and the B-52!
A lot of this is not true, the F-22 does not need to be heavily armed but it has approximately same ammount of armour as a F-15, probably not as armoured as the A-10 but heavy armour has many downsides. This aircraft does not need these attributes though as this aircraft does not need to go into dogfights as the F-22 is undetected by the enemy aircraft and can shoot it down before the enemy has an idea of where the F-22 is, the F-22 is defnitely very expensive but is a quite maneuverable aircraft but maneuverability isn't needed as much today as that is only necessary for dogfights and dogfights never occur ever since the end of the cold war, the F-22 also has the most advanced avionics systems and radar systems which the Chinese, russian and many other countries can't match for now. Also this aircraft is very fast for a Stealth Fighter, It is cabable of reaching speed of over 2400 km/h and can fly without afterburners over supersonic speeds which reduces noise and heat signature of the aircraft as well as reducing fuel, so by supercruising it will be much harder for the enemy heat seeking missiles to track this aircraft down. Also this aircraft was never cancelled, it is still in production today but boeing and lockheed martin are debating whether or not to continue manufacturing the F-22s and making more for the future. Although if you do not like this aircraft i completely understand, it is one of my favourite aircraft personally but i completely respect your opinion on it

I respect your opinion also and it is a fact that is has one of the most advanced avionics systems in the world and I respect you for being so well-informed although the F-22 is so poorly armored that it cannot survive fire from small caliber bullets.
Ah yes, although the F-22 is one of my favourites it would not be the first choice of aircraft i would choose to fly, for me it would most likely be the Sukhoi T-50 Pak Fa or the F-15SE Silent Eagle (Which is the Stealth version of the F-15e Strike Eagle)

Yeah the T-50 looks like a fantastic aircraft :) The F-22 is a good aircraft although it has no use in this day in age due to there being no real aerial threats (no more soviet union).
Yeah although russia and america still have a thing against eachother and russia does have their sukhoi SU-35s so those may pose a threat but you are right as they are no real threat just for now

Haha thanks mate! I came up with the idea a long time ago and pushed the idea away but now i've come back to it and used it in one of my jets! Thanks! :)
looks cool but i cant download! it says dropbox is empty! could u put a schemagic on this plz
Just download the schematic and use mcedit to import it into one of your worlds! if you do not know how to search up "How to import schematics with MCedit"
Super cool bro! Diamond! Sub as well :D
Thanks heaps mate! Really appreciate it! :D
