F-22 will kill the EF. The poor EF won't know what hit him until he's dead.

The F-22 will never kill a EF because they will never fight. This disscussion is purely academic. In BWR combat the raptor clearly has an advantage, however in WVR arena they are pretty evenly matched. All that doesn't matter though, because the likelihood
 of a F-22/EF hostile engagement is close to 0.

I think with some top class AWACS and the right tactics you could prevent a complete F-22A walkover

1:The Eurofighter has not seen service as it is not operational yet in the RAF.

Looks like they are now according to RAF sources:

Typhoon entry into service

Early RAF Typhoons were based at BAE Systems' Warton airfield, where the aircraft was assembled. This arrangement, dubbed "Case White" was intended to provide a smooth entry into service - with the close proximity of BAE staff allowing easy solutions to any technical issues which arise. This is important given the unparalled capabilities and complexity of the aircraft compared to any of the service's current types. The first squadrons, No. 17 OEU and No. 29 OCU Sqns, moved to RAF Coningsby in 2005 to begin establishing an initial operational capability (IOC). The first operational squadron, No. 3, formed at Coningsby on April 1 2006.

True, if we don't get to the AWACS that is.  ;) And the earlier comment that the F-22 and Eurofighter won't ever fight........... How do you know that? Europe could very well sell the EF to a contry that can emerge as hostile. I.e. Iraq, Iran, Venezuela, Russia......get the point?

I wonder what the combined strength of the EU is.

From what I read a while back, the combined military spending of the European Union is not even a third of what the US's spending on military is.

I think that the EF couldn't detect the F-22 and thus the F-22 WOULD WIN.

Ah.. but you forgot the mighty and undefeated F-15, which has a 105-0 combat kill record. The F-15 is old and it still eats Russian jets for breakfast. Now it's aging, and isn't the best of the best anymore, but it still owns.
