02/22/2015: Raptors in the Middle East are operating the fifth generation way.
After their up front kinetic operations, the F-22s play a major role working with the fleet to identify threats and targets for the legacy fleet.
As a Typhoon pilot put it: “F-22s enhance the survivability and lethality of the Typhoon in operations.”
In this video, F-22 Raptors assigned to the 1st Fighter Wing, 94th Fighter Squadron, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA, along with Airmen from the 192nd Fighter Wing from Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA, participate in Red Flag 15-1 hosted at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, NV.
Nellis AFB and the Nevada Test and Training Range are the home of a simulated battlefield, providing combat air forces with the ability to train to fight together in a peacetime environment, and to survive and win together.
