F-22 Raptor Does Insane Vertical Climb

Clean Rating: Safe for work.
thumb_up thumb_down 15 | thumb_up thumb_down

Thrust to weight ratio of an F-22 is approx 1/.72, that's 1lb of thrust for every .72lbs of vehicle weight. So theoretically, the F-22 can climb vertically forever, or at least until it runs out of oxygen to burn fuel.

    Looks cool. A lot of hype with the F22...more importantly, a lot of money spent on it. Are we ever going to see it put to use or are we saving that for China or Iran?
