Ok with all do respect Russia has some good stuff but the F22 and Comanchie Are untouchable

F/A-22 Raptor Air Dominance
for the 21st Century
No fighter in the world comes close to matching the F/A-22. By every measure, the Raptor represents extraordinary breakthroughs in maneuverability, stealth, sensor fusion a wealth of parameters that define a new era in fighter capability.

The origins of the F/A-22 can be traced to the early 1970s, when the U.S. Air Force began studying concepts for replacement of its F-15 air superiority fighter. This became a formal program when the service requested proposals for an Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) in October 1985. The simple fact: New air and ground threats were looming that the F-15 would not be able to counter.

Now these threats will be defeated by the highly lethal and survivable F/A-22, with its balance of increased speed and range, enhanced offensive and defensive avionics, and reduced observability. The design of the F/A-22 also emphasizes reliability and maintainability of systems.

The F/A-22 is capable of flying and fighting against the most advanced integrated radar networks and dense surface-to-air missile environments in the world now and in the future. A new generation of fighters is under development in several countries around the world today. The advent of these new fighters, as well as the continuing export of current air defense and adversary advanced fighter technology to the Third World, put the United States ability to gain and maintain air superiority, much less air dominance, at increasing risk. The F/A-22 will retain the competitive edge through innovations and technologies no one can match.

In early 2001, the U.S. Air Force introduced a concept called Global Strike Task Force in which the F/A-22 Raptor is the enabler for all other forces. The success of any major air-land operation today and in the future depends primarily on the United States preeminent ability to detect and destroy enemy fighters as well as attack high-value ground targets with precision weapons.

With the F/A-22, the era of U.S. air dominance against all ground- and air-based threats has begun.

And

RAH-66 Comanche
The Boeing Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche armed reconnaissance helicopter is the centerpiece of the U.S. Army's aviation modernization plan. This reflects the Army's overall transition to an Objective Force that will utilize advanced weapon systems and smaller forces that are responsive, deployable, agile, versatile, lethal, survivable and sustainable.

The Comanche is a twin-turbine, two-seat (tandem) armed reconnaissance helicopter with projected missions of armed reconnaissance, light attack and air combat. First deliveries will occur in 2006.

The Comanche program validated a number of aircraft systems and components and built and flew two flight-test prototype aircraft in its Demonstration/Validation/Prototype phase from contract award in 1991 through 2000. The program launched a $3.1 billion Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase in mid-2000. During EMD, the program will continue flight tests and validation of the Comanche's fully integrated navigation, communication and passive-sensor targeting system, known as the Mission Equipment Package. In addition, the program will build and deliver 13 new Comanches for additional flight tests and U.S. Army operational test, evaluation and training. The Comanche program will reach full production in about 2010 and manufacture 650 RAH-66s for U.S. Army service.

The Comanche is the world's most advanced rotorcraft, featuring an all-composite, low-observable airframe that evades detection by radar, infrared and acoustic sensors. Its dynamic system includes a five-bladed bearingless main rotor, split-torque main transmission and an enclosed tail rotor system. Flight controls are fly-by-wire and triply redundant. All aircraft systems are integrated in the Mission Equipment Package that contains a digital avionics suite with advanced programmable communications; an integrated helmet-mounted heads-up display; a night-vision pilotage system and an electro-optical target acquisition and detection system that utilize advanced, passive, long-range, high-resolution sensors to generate real-time broad-band information to battlefield commanders about enemy dispositions; self-healing digital mission electronics; and triply redundant on-board system diagnostics. The aircraft can utilize high-speed and aerobatic maneuverability to avoid detection and engagement, and carries both missile armament in retractable bays and a retractable Gatling gun slaved to the helmet display. The Comanche is designed for easy field maintenance and repair and eliminates intermediate maintenance requirements.

The Boeing Company in Philadelphia is the Comanche's Mission Equipment Package integrator. Sikorsky Aircraft, of Stratford, Conn., is the program's airframe integrator. The Boeing Sikorsky Team includes several of the nation's leading aerospace companies, including BAE Systems; General Dynamics; Hamilton Sundstrand; Harris, Kaiser Electronics; LHTEC; Longbow, Ltd.; Lockheed Martin; Moog; TRW; and Williams International.

russia already beat the f22 with mig 1.44, but there are no money to put it in production.

Your correct one one assessment Sector: "there are no money to put it in production"...on top of that, it was only a R&D test bed for current and future projects.

Your other assessment is most definitely debatable.

Also this MiG 1.44 was from the start build only as a testbed aircraft..
