Where did you read that? Fox news?
It is limited to the point a pilot will not blackout, the pilot's are very capable of surviving the maximum performance of an F22, unless it was sustained for a very long period of time for the lack of oxygen to the brain to become critical. Of course once a pilot does blackout, the pressure on the controls will cease, G-forces will lower and the pilot will regain consciousness within seconds.
The F22 is not new in this regard, Jet Fighters have been able to exceed the pilot's G-limit for many years now.
Red Bull racing pilot's pull more G's than Jet Pilot's given they don't have computer's limiting their control inputs.
Do you feel especially good about yourself now? You sure showed me! I feel like an insignificant peon who only gets my information from LoMar infosystem reps at defense tech trade shows! [no]

I know what the LoMar reps explained in their presentation... They know what they know, and I have a feeling they know more than you.
EDIT: And you know, it's not like I'm claiming to be a know-it-all on the subject like you, I'm simply regurgitating information... at least I'm noting my source, whereas you've offered nothing. I'm done with this thread, if you wanted to dispute what I had to say, you didn't have to be a douchebag. You were looking for an argument, not a discussion. Period.

F-22 supposed to replace F-16 rite?.. which its the best multi-role fighter.
The last i heard, F-16 still the best multi-role fighter even that time F-22 was out.
There is no question that the f-22 would dominate anything in the sky today (i know you Euro's will argue this, but in head to head, all things being equal or near so, stealth wins out). However, at 200 million a plane it is not practicle to have anywhere near the #'s of this plane as were seen by the f-16. Last i heard production will end at 350 or so planes, which for an air dominace plane seems sufficient to me.
