    The F-117 was developed in the 70s, not long after the other 4th generation fighters.  

    The F-22 was the US's first 5th gen fighter.

    Never heard heard of a B-117. The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was a strategic bomber used in WW2. You can't compare a bomber to a fighter different mission. Cutting through all The Bullshyt the best Air Superiority Fighter is the F-15 Eagle the facts and it's Combat record prove that.

    The  F-117 NightHawk wasn't a fighter it was a stealth deep penetration precision bomber. It's payload was Limited and for the time it was used it did it's job well.
