The Lockheed F-22 Raptor is the USAF replacement for the F-15 Eagle air-superiority fighter. It combines stealth design with the supersonic, highly maneuverable, dual-engine, long-range requirements of an air-to-air fighter and will have an inherent air-to-ground capability. The F-22's integrated avionics gives it first-look, first-shot, first-kill capability. It is very expensive so the number purchased for the USAF was very limited.
This aircraft was seen at Nellis AFB, Nevada USA
