US Military Finds a Target Weak Enough to Debut F-22 'Superjet'

In a move designed to amaze Americans and awe enemies and allies alike, the United States Military at last eased--gently, ever so gently--the now legendary F-22 wonder jet into 'combat.' The most sophisticated and expensive warplane in US history (which as of last week was still untested in combat) was inserted into a combat scenario that was essentially the military equivalent of taking on a newborn baby kitten: bombing ISIS training camps in Northern and Western Syria.

The anti-aircraft defenses in the region maintained by the "official" Syrian military consist of Russian vintage AA missile batteries and jets. While it was not 100% clear whether the Syrian government would react to the bombing operation, the whole thing was--in either case--pretty much a creampuff scenario for US stealth technology and radar jamming to handle. Nonetheless, in a statement that seemed to indicate that even the aforementioned easy-shmeasy attack scenario might have been worrisome for those responsible for the luxury superjet, Lt. Gen William Mayville, the joint staff’s operations director in the Pentagon, said on Monday that Syrian air defense radar were in “passive” mode when US warplanes struck. Guess we weren't taking any chances there, eh guys?
