And so why doesn't the F-22 have a 2 seat version? Or better yet.. why isn't the F-22 2 seat? Is it purely to reduce the lifted payload that is replaced by computing power?
and so why wasn't it a part of the original program with or w/o the Indians?

What I understood why there is no twin-seat F-22 was simple: many jobs could be given to computer that equiped on F-22.
Concerning to quantities of the F-22's, I think US has been aware sth from recent crisis at Caucaso.

The F-22 is like the A-10. They only built one seaters for both. They use simulators for all the training in them. Your first flight is your solo flight. The simulators are so realistic that they don't need a two seat version for training.
Awesome catch, C0bzz.
