The FB-22, sometimes called the Strike Raptor, is a conceptual medium bomber based on the F-22A Raptor.

HistoryEdit

The FB-22 was conceived by Lockheed Martin in 2002 as a medium bomber and air-to-ground strike derivative of the F-22A, built on its planned and actual capabilities to serve the regional bomber role formerly covered by the F-111 Aardvark. The aircraft was intended to be a conventional Raptor outfitted with delta wings and a lengthened fuselage, allowing for an increase in fuel storage, combined with stronger engines that would have allowed it to achieve speeds of Mach 1.92 to support the enlarged body.

The Strike Raptor was later put forward as a candidate for the United States Air Force's Next-Generation Bomber program on account of the reduction of costs for being based on a reliably tested platform, serving as a temporary measure until the development of the conceptual 2037 Bomber. The production of the aircraft was permanently cancelled by the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review, as the US government favored a subsonic bomber with intercontinental range.

General analysisEdit

Classified as an attacker-type, the FB-22 distinguishes itself as one of the fastest aircraft of its field, more so than the F-16XL or the Tornado series. Although slower than the F-22, it is more stable in low speed flight and possesses stronger armor, but has switched air-to-air and air-to-ground performance values. Despite its shortcomings, it retains a level of agility that allows it to engage aircraft without danger to itself, and is regularly armed with heavy anti-armor weapons.
