    Do the Russians think it is a 5th generation Fighter.....I don't think they were looking to take on Raptors with these. Now their Mig 37 is 5th generation.....correct?

    The MIG37 doesn't exist, the F22 Raptor is the only 5th Generation aircraft on the planet.

    MiG-37

    The MiG-37 (fictional NATO reporting name Ferret E) is a fictional stealth aircraft produced in kit form by Italian model manufacturer Italeri, in co-operation with American model company Testors. The kit was a follow-up to Testors' highly successful (and fictional) "F-19 Stealth" model kit.

    The MiG-37 is a stealth fighter designed using advances in technology from the Soviet Union's space and aviation programs as a reaction to the American F-19 stealth project.

    The SU 37 now is a modified SU 35.









    also designated S-32 and S-37 (not to be confused with the twin-engined delta canard design[1] offered by Sukhoi in the early 1990s under the designation Su-37) during initial development, was an experimental supersonic jet fighter developed by Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. A distinguishing feature of the aircraft was its forward-swept wing[2] that gave the aircraft excellent agility and maneuverability. While serial production of the type never materialized, the sole aircraft produced served as a technology demonstrator prototype for a number of advanced technologies later used in the 4.5 generation fighter SU-35BM and current fifth-generation jet fighter prototype Sukhoi PAK FA T-50.



    Their PAKFA T 50.....Stealth Fighter.....along with the 47 they think they have our Raptors outclassed. As they will be flying together.

    The F-22 is probably the last version of an advanced manned fighter will see. They'll update the platform as tech advances, but the allure of unmanned fighters and their increasing improvements will probably be the future. A human flying a Raptor will cost more, and may not even be capable of outfighting an automated system with robot speed and precision.

    Heya Grip. Yeah and that was something the US Space Command even brought up. Robot pilots.

    Almost in the subject. Alaska generally is controversial State. It seems to belong to us, but is far and quite independent.
    And earthquakes at Alaska is nothing more that attempts to come back to Mother Russia. North to the north, polar bears want to join their families)))

    It has flight vectoring but no stealth so it's at most a 4.5 generation fighter which has absolutely 0 chance against the raptor which would shoot it out of the sky before they ever saw it, furthermore, as you said it never went into production and the PAK FA has likewise not gone into production either and by the time it does the F22 will be upgraded, basically it will be obsolete before it's even delivered.

    The human body is incapable of handling the G's which the maneuverability of the F22 allows for it's resulted in a few accidents related to black outs IIRC.

    They've developed a new Anti-G suit since the F-16 version, with better coverage that helps with the F-22 and F-35's power. Most pilots from their training can handle a sustained 8-9 G pull for a few seconds. The F-22 was having problems at high altitudes with pilots blacking out and becoming faint from hypoxia. Ironically, the Air Force now believes that a key problem was a valve in the pilots’ pressure vest that caused it to inflate and remain inflated, triggering breathing problems. Besides changes being made to the fighter’s oxygen system, the Air Force is replacing the valve and increasing the volume of air flowing to the pilots by removing a filter that was installed to check for contaminants in the system. They also installed a new backup emergency oxygen system, added sensors and put in an improved pilot oxygen center.
