The F-35 Lightning and F-22 Raptor are being upgraded and improved as new technologies emerge. Are there significant benefits to developing an entirely new airframe with advanced stealth technology? The specifics of such breakthroughs are likely to be classified.


Kris Osborn writing in 19FortyFive, makes the following points:

  • The F35 and F22 will likely get improved sensing, computing, targeting, networking, and command and control.
  • Early 6th-generation fighter jet designs will probably include updated stealth technology without compromising speed and agility.
  •  LockheedNorthrop Grumman, and Boeing are working on sixth-generation designs.
