Opis bombarderske misije iznad Sirije/Iraka

Citat:Air Force Lt. Col. J. has known for close to 24 hours that this will be an important night for him and his wingman. Their famous “Hat in The Ring” squadron flies the F-22 Raptor, the most capable and controversial fighter plane in the world.

Built at a cost of more than $100 million per aircraft and seen by critics as an unnecessary “air superiority” stealth fighter of limited utility, advocates say the F-22 is proving its value in Operation Inherent Resolve.

The F-22 was declared operational in 2004 and saw its first combat a decade later, flying over Iraq in September 2014 in what one general called an “aerial quarterback” role and dropping 1,000-lbs. JDAMs as part of Operation Inherent Resolve.

Now J. and his wingman have been given a sensitive new mission. Tonight they are targeting an HVT (High Value Target) using a weapon newly adapted to the F-22. They are to drop 250-lbs., GPS-guided Small Diameter Bombs (SDB) on a house in Mosul where a top ISIS leader is believed to be.

Shown imagery of Mosul prior to the mission, J. recalled later, “I remember seeing the target, and seeing that it was an in urban environment, and seeing how close it was, literally tens of feet away from other buildings, and thinking, ‘This is the first time that I’ve ever dropped one of these weapons. This is the first time that the F-22 has ever dropped one of these in combat, and we’re going big first. This is no cream puff. We’re going after an HVT in an urban environment a few hundred feet from a hospital.’ I remember thinking, ‘If this goes bad, everyone is going to know about it and we’re going to be the goat.’ ”

But J. also knows that targeteers back home and one deployed with his squadron have determined it can be hit without unacceptable risk of collateral damage.

Their Step Briefing complete, J. and his wingman go for their mission briefing to a small portable shelter behind barbed wire, a Secure Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF (pronounced “Skiff”), where matters at high levels of classification can be discussed. The SCIF is cramped, not much bigger than a tent on wheels, but there is a whiteboard and a map and computers in all corners. Here they are told where they will find the tankers that will refuel them in flight and other vital information.

By the time J. and his wingman drive to their F-22s on the other side of the airfield, the maintainers have their Raptors ready to go — full of fuel and loaded with bombs. Two 1,000-lbs. JDAMs is the Raptor’s normal load but tonight, each of the F-22s holds eight 250-lbs. SDBs in its weapons bay.

Soon the Raptors roar into the air, the sound of their afterburners reverberating for miles across the darkened desert. The flight to Mosul will take hours, so the first thing the pilots do is find the first tanker that will refuel them tonight.

Poslednje verzije Raptora su trenutno u akcijama iznad Sirije

Citat:“What our squadron is bringing to the fight now versus some of the previous squadrons, is we have the most up to date software and hardware loads that an F-22 can carry,” said Lt. Col. David, 90th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron commander in a recent Air Force release. “There is a huge advancement in the capabilities of the avionics, the radar system, the sensors and certain electronic features on board the aircraft.”

Although they are rarely requested to attack ground targets, the Alaskan Raptors can now drop 8 GBU-39 small diameter bombs while previously they were limited to carry two 1,000-lb GBU-32 JDAMs (Joint Direct Attack Munitions) in the internal weapon bay: with the latest upgrade they can be tasked for missions which require greater precision.

An initial air-to-surface capability, including that of dropping the GBU-39 (a 250-lb multipurpose, insensitive, penetrating, blast-fragmentation warhead for stationary targets equipped with deployable wings for extended standoff range, whose integration testing started in 2007) had been introduced with the software increment 3.1 back in 2012.

Even though the odds of using an advanced air-to-air missiles over Syria are pretty low, another important addition to the F-22’s payload is the latest generation AIM-9X (already integrated in most of US combat planes since 2003): on Mar. 1, 2016 the 90th Fighter Squadron (FS) officially became the first combat-operational Raptor unit to equip an F-22 with the AIM-9X Sidewinder.
