Rafale and F-16 Ever Defeated US Advanced Fighter F-22 Raptor

International Military - The United States has so far always prided itself on the F-22 Raptor, which it considers the strongest aircraft without any defects. It is not uncommon for the US to warn the world that the F-22 Raptor cannot be defeated, either in aerial combat or in training.

The F-22 Raptor itself is classified as a 5th generation fighter aircraft, which incidentally has the sophistication and capabilities above the 4++ generation. But the greatness of the plane is apparently still in doubt for the truth. There are even claims that a US F-22 has been "shot down" in an aerial exercise.

Quoted from Defense Security Asia, the "defeat" experienced by the F-22 Raptor allegedly occurred in November 2009 while conducting air exercises at Al Dhahfra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The incident took place at the UAE Air Force air base.

An F-22 Raptor of the US Air Force's 1st Fighter Wing in Virginia has "collised" with a Rafale of the French Air Force and a Eurofighter Typhoon of the British Air Force. Also in training is a UAE Air Force Dassault Mirage 2000 fighter jet.

In a mock aerial combat exercise, allegations say that a French Air Force Rafale equipped with a "MICA" air-to-air missile has managed to "shoot down" an F-22 Raptor. In fact, some in the French air force have released videos taken from the cockpit of the aircraft showing the Rafale aircraft in a very good position to launch the "MICA" missile against the F-22 Raptor aircraft which is in excellent position.

The video was released after the US Air Force denied that their F-22 Raptor had been "shot down" by a French-made 4.5 generation aircraft that it said was older and less modern than the Raptor.

The US certainly does not want to admit that its fifth-generation fighter jet has been successfully tamed by a 4.5-generation fighter jet. The US Air Force claims no F-22 Raptor has been "shot down" during training in the UAE. In fact, the US made claims that the Raptors had managed to shoot down six Rafale planes in one-on-one clashes in practice, while the other five battles ended in draws.

It was a "retaliatory strike" from the US military as claims of an F-22 Raptor being shot down in training began circulating in the international air force community. In fact, it is not only the Rafale who allegedly managed to "shoot down" the Raptor in an exercise at the Al Dhahfra air base, but a Mirage 2000 belonging to the UAE Air Force also allegedly managed to shoot down the most advanced fighter plane in the world at the time.

In fact, according to some defense observers, the F-22 was actually defeated by the United States Air Force's F-16 in an exercise held in 2006. The success of the F-16 is said to have been repeated by the Growler aircraft in 2008 or 2008.

A commander of the F-22 Raptor squadron, Lieutenant Colonel Dirk Smith told defense magazines that no matter how good an aircraft is, any pilot can make mistakes.
