 One $300 million! The cost of the Sixth Generation of American Fighter Aircraft scared Congress


The cost of a single F-22 five-generation aircraft in active service is about $200 million.

After the fifth generation stealth fighter planes developed by Russia and China came out one after another, in order to ensure absolute air power, the US Air Force quickly launched the preliminary research work of the sixth generation fighter planes. But Defense News said on the 15th that the cost of the future fighter was assessed for the first time by the U.S. government, and the result was astonishing - its price would be three times that of the F-35 stealth fighter, with a unit price of $300 million. How to solve the contradiction between the number of next generation fighter equipment, single aircraft performance and economic affordability has become a major problem facing the US Air Force.
