Those numbers are, in fact, classified. The engine tech on the F22 is also classified, the avionics, tracking systems, comms, even the wiring is classified.

Good luck getting anything other than assumed numbers.

No argument from me. Here's an example. USAF states the thrust of the F-119 is 35,000lbs per. I assume that's not classified.lol. PW sites say somwhere around 36,700 lbs of thrust. Again "not classified". Go to LM's f-22 site under engine specs., you'll get 39,000 lbs thrust. Safe to assume that's not classified as it also isn't "true". Safe to assume the thrust is higher, albeit, not much.

Then there's all the other sites where 39,000 173 kNs are bandied about as casually as the favorite brand of tequila. (Don Julio).

Heck, the Navy still shows 30 knots for a Nimitz class carrier, same as the Bismark in WW2....

One doesn't need to know the "numbers" to get the idea that 1.3 or 1.4 T/W ratio gives a different picture of what a 22 can do rather than 1.1 . Heck the wogs and Russians know more than we do about whats in our closet....

That's because there was no reason to freak out over them. There were only six of them, and they haven't received the 3.1 upgrade that allows multiple targets and other ground attack improvements. They're probably still there, they only deployed there at the end of April.
