America’s Air Superiority May Become A Thing Of The Past, Warns Leadership

“Fighter aircraft in the next three to five years that have more capability than what we currently have sitting on the ramp. The F-35 will stay a generation ahead of them. F-22 will, too.

Mark Welsh, the Air Force’s chief of staff in an exclusive interview with Fox News on how budget cuts could impact american Air Superiority in the years to come.

“China and Russia are two good examples of countries who will be fielding capability in the next three to five years; if they stay on track, that is better than what we currently have in many areas,” Welsh said.
