The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is an American single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft developed exclusively for the United States Air Force (USAF). The result of the USAF's Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) program, the aircraft was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but also has ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities.

F-22s appear in Syphon Filter 2 They are operated by Agency fighter pilots. A pair of F-22s are scrambled out of McKenzie AFB in Colorado to intercept a CBDC C-130 carrying a CBDC team while enroute to Arizona.
One F-22 can be seen landing on McKenzie AFB.
One of the two pilots is subsequently shot by Dillon Morgan when he fails to stop the C-130's crew from escaping, prompting the other pilot to release nerve gas on the C-130 crash site. Lian Xing manages to sabotage an F-22 and kill its pilot before the Agency could deploy this lethal agent on Gabe Logan and the other surviving CBDC agents.
One of the Raptors in the game has an unknown logo as well as the emblem of the Air Combat Command. It also has a "NE" tail code. Aircraft with this particular tail code belong to Carrier Air Wing Two (CVW-2), a United States Navy aircraft carrier air wing based at Naval Air Station Lemoore. The air wing is attached to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70).
