"The F-22 is not going to be a fighter-versus-fighter airplane," says Riccioni. "And if you want that capability, you can get it if you don't design for stealth. And if you don't design for stealth, you can make it affordable. And if it's affordable, you can get the numbers you want." Riccioni's right, of course, except for the fact that the Air Force doesn't even need a new fleet of planes because there's no existing fighter threat, hasn't been one since the Korean War, and there's none in the foreseeable future.
The second method comes from my own knowledge. ( Blah ). One radar send signals to a modified radio (reciever) constantly. This is similar to how an AM radio works. You bounce the signal off the ionization layer of the atmosphere to reach the other radar at the receiving point. And then there are two other recievers (not radars) that are placed at 180% to each other. All three units are placed on a circular rim.

That report is 99.9% total crap, I would be here all day correcting all the BS in it but I don’t have the luxury of time or patience. Knowledgeable members can see right through it anyway.
There was recently a show on discovery that took the Raptor from conception in the 50's with other types of aircraft, to the YF -22 and 23, and the changes that have been made to the F-22 since Lockheed was awarded the contract.
Actually i would like to see YOU debunk it with your *extensive* knowledge, and knowledge gained from being a serving officer.
But what happens when the raptor fights another stealth plane.
I thought the Su-47 is supposed to be stealthy and then I saw a thread somewhere around here earlier about the new russian PAK-FA that is supposed to be just like the raptor.
