MARIETTA, Ga. - Lockheed Martin Corp. is working to further develop the F/A-22 Raptor's electronic attack (EA) capability, such as against improvised explosives devices (IEDs), and continues to envision a bomber version of the aircraft, executives told The DAILY and other reporters Nov. 28.
As for a stealthy bomber version, one executive said Lockheed Martin envisions a larger variant capable of delivering 100,000 pounds of ordnance. The variant would benefit from several existing attack-fighter innovations, including payload doors that open, launch ordnance and close all within 1.5 seconds, minimizing the aircraft's radar signature.
