5 Fifth Generation Fighter Jets With The Most Advanced Technology

International Military - Air force is an important element for every country and air superiority provides protection and security of its country. One of the most powerful forces in the air force is the fighter jet. Ownership of fighter jets is a must for every country that wants to maintain the sovereignty of their airspace. For now, the fifth generation fighter jet is the most advanced generation of fighter jets in the world.

Fifth-generation fighter jets incorporate the latest technologies compared to fourth-generation fighter jets. Typically, fifth-generation fighter jets have stealth in all aspects, even when armed. Fifth-generation fighter jets can also evade radar detection, adopt advanced avionics features, and integrated computer systems and are able to network with other elements in the battlefield. Launching Aero Time, here is a list of five fifth-generation fighter jets that are already present in the world.

The F-22 Raptor is the world's first fifth-generation fighter jet and entered service in 2005. This fighter jet was made by the US arms company Lockheed Martin and became an important element for the US Air Force. Despite being a pioneer of fifth-generation fighter jets, the US government stopped production of the F-22 Raptor in 2011. One of the factors that led to the cessation of production of this fighter jet was the soaring development and maintenance costs. Lockheed Martin delivered the last F-22 Raptor to the US Air Force in 2012.

The F-35A is the basic variant, a conventional fighter jet. The F-35B is capable of taking off on short runways and is capable of vertical landing. The F-35C is a variant for aircraft carriers. The US government spent 1.508 trillion US dollars on development costs for the fighter jet. Lockheed Martin projects that the US Air Force will utilize the fighter jet until 2070.

The FC-31 or J-31 is the second fifth-generation fighter jet from China. This fighter jet is manufactured by Shenyang Aircraft Corporation. This fighter jet will be introduced to the Chinese Air Force. The FC-31 is also said to be still less sophisticated than its predecessor, the J-20. Nevertheless, the FC-31 is still a capable fifth-generation fighter jet. The exact specifications are also unclear to anyone outside the Chinese military. Some foreign experts, especially from the US, suspect that the FC-31 is on par with other fifth-generation fighters. The FC-31 is lighter and more agile than the J-20. In the future, these fighter jets may be deployed on Chinese aircraft carriers. China might try to sell it to other countries too in the future.
