Does anyone think the AF will request 2 seater Raptors like what was done with the Eagles a few years after they were produced

     No, sadly. The F/B-22 had a tailless design, but it was scrapped. Oh yeah, you seem cool. Can I add your YIM to my list? Or your AIM?

I think he meant the F-22B. A two seat concept. But the story is the same: It was cancelled.

     Well, instead of tailfins, they went for an X-36 tailless design. And the cockpit had two seats. There are others, and I'll try to find more.

We have the enemy surrounded. We are dug in and have overwhelming numbers. But enemy airpower is mauling us badly. We will have to withdraw.

the fb22 manta was cancelled....until further study is done which would prob be because of a need to replace the f-117....if instead the dod decides to go for a strike aircraft like the f-15 strike then it would have vertical tails and would be quite similar in design to the f-22

     Or, just go to AFACadet or Grinder. They're great sources. AFACadet is in the AFA, and Grinder is currently in the Air Force, and he worked on the B-1B, F-117, and others.
