US to adopt 200 sixth-generation stealth fighters

In Washington, they planned to take into the flight crew two hundred fighters created under the Next-Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) program. This was reported by the American edition of The War Zone.

These aircraft, along with a thousand innovative unmanned combat escort fighters developed under the Collaborative Combat Aircraft (CCA) program, as well as 300 fifth-generation F-35 fighters, will form the basis of the US Air Force tactical strategy. United States Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall spoke about this during a roundtable at the symposium of the Air and Space Forces Association in Aurora, Colorado.

At the same time, it is noted that the use of NGAD in tandem with unmanned combat support fighters with artificial intelligence systems on board will make it possible to avoid a large number of losses and at the same time perform complex military tasks.

At the same time, only a prototype of the 6th generation fighter is now available, which allows for flight tests and practicing the use of a number of of technologies. The flight of the first production aircraft is planned for 2030.

The performance characteristics of NGAD are classified. Apparently, the new stealth aircraft will be able to operate in areas of increased danger, where the troops of the Western bloc are not able to operate effectively even in conditions of superior forces. Fighters will be able to overcome the resistance of air defense systems and destroy almost any obstacles in their path.

    Sooner or later, the fighting will come to battles with drones in operator-AI combination. Already today, it is impossible for a soldier on the battlefield to fight effectively without technologically advanced bells and whistles. In the near future, drone battles await us, wars will apparently become more humane, an army that has lost its drones will be forced to capitulate. Russia with its vast territories is critically short of people, apparently the main goal of the campaign against Ukraine is the last attempt to unite these lands in a single population that can try to resist the technologically rushing into the future of the golden billion and China. A small population is doomed to technological backwardness with subsequent absorption of more advanced ones.

    Stanislav Lem described already in 1986 ("Fiasco") the wars of the future as wars of technospheres brought into space. Fully automated, autonomous weapons that independently search for enemy equipment and make their own decisions without the participation of general staffs. New generations of weapons are produced and fight without the participation of the biosphere. We are moving there.

    All super-technological weapons are designed to cause maximum damage to the enemy's defense systems and economy.
    It is assumed that when enormous damage is inflicted, the political leadership of the enemy state will cease to exist and it will be possible to replace and control it.
    However, this is possible only with the ideological bankruptcy of power. Otherwise, the military victory will be temporary, and the motivation for revenge for the enemy will only increase.
    Therefore, the main goal in the confrontation lies in the plane of propaganda and information warfare. Preponderance on the informational and ideological front is a priority for confrontation.
