"You owe me a plane, you know that, right?"
James Rhodes to Tony Stark[src]

The F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation supermaneuverable fighter aircraft that uses stealth technology. It is mainly used by the United States Armed Forces.


"You're at 114 Solenski Plaza, 3rd floor. We have an F-22 exactly 8 miles out. Put the woman on the phone or I will blow up the block before you can make the lobby."
Phil Coulson to Georgi Luchkov[src]

Shortly after Tony Stark's escape from captivity in Afghanistan, the United States Army troops stationed in the Kunar province were ordered to keep an eye on Stark's kidnappers, the Ten Rings terrorist group. When one day unknown aerial vehicle attacked members of the Ten Rings in the village of Gulmira, the two F-22 Raptors were sent to scan the area. However, the "bogey" was actually Stark in a flying armored suit. During the chase in the sky, one of the Raptors was damaged, but Stark managed to save the pilot.

As Iron Monger and Iron Man battled outside of Stark Industries Headquarters, James Rhodes made sure that the skies stayed cleared of F-22s who wanted to investigate.[1]

Phil Coulson told Georgi Luchkov when he called on one of his thug's phones that there was an F-22 that would fire upon him if he did not allow Natasha Romanoff to talk to him when she was on a mission in Russia.[2]

When Tony Stark called Vice President Rodriguez thinking he might be in danger, Rodriguez told him that he was secure. When the conversation moved to President Matthew Ellis, Rodriguez said that he could have F-22s in the air if Air Force One had a hint of trouble.[3]


It was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities that include ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles.
