Raptors impact on Iran attack

Raptors impact on Iran attack

Forum: F-22A Raptor

This week, Raptors are being deployed to Asia and the White House claims Iranian IEDs have killed Americans In Iraq, a casus belli. This coincidence makes me wonder what difference the Raptor could make in an air war on Iran. I don't want to get into speculating whether an attack will, or should, happen but what difference do you think they could make, given the numbers there are now and in the next year?

I assume they wouldn't be needed for air to air but they could take many ground targets by surprise

Iran atack isn;t a problem to be solved with F-22's, the main problem is the uranium enrichment installations, destroy these installation require something like the DeepDigger or Nukes(no case), Just B-2A work, F-22A maybe as Scort, but not in attack role (well a coupe equiped with SLAM just in case some opportunity target is seen).

Some people believe DeepDiggers are close to be "usable", also Israel may have they own version., DeepDigger requies fisrt to clean the zone of AAA (TOR-M1) because it lands with a parachute, Also multiple rounds of "diggers" on the same hole maybe required, not easy work.
