The world's most expensive fighter jet is unexpectedly quite famous. If you've seen the movie Transformers, then you've just caught glimpse of the $150 million per unit fighter jet known as F-22 Raptor. Characterized by Decepticon's Starcream, the F-22 Raptor is believed to be the most advanced and most expensive jet fighter in the world developed by Lockheed Martin Corporation for the United States Armed Forces.
This aircraft that has the capacity to take on 10 targets at 150 miles away at one time, 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 that will guarantee U.S. air dominance for the next 40 years.
According to recent news however, F-22 has not only sat on the sidelines in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya — the entire fleet has been grounded indefinitely since early May due to a problem that’s caused some mysterious symptoms for pilots.
