The era of the 5th Generation Fighter Aircraft was ushered in with the introduction of the USAF Lockheed F-22 Raptor air superiority platform in 2005.

The Fifth Generation Fighter is the current standard naming convention for 'next-generation' fighter aircraft. While there are no truly defined, widely-accepted features of this breed, the aircraft considered for the title often utilize proven features of 4th Generation Fighter designs and introduce all-new levels of performance, stealth profiles and advanced avionics with integrated all-digital flight systems. Primary armament is held in an internal internal bay to further preserve the airframe's radar signature. The first 5th Generation fighter to reach service was the American lockkeed F-22 Raptor. There are currently several high-profile developments being undertaken in Russia, China, Turkey, South Korea, Japan, and Europe.
