Developed in the framework of Next-Generation Air Dominance program (NGAD) for the U.S. Air Force (Air Force) the 6th generation fighter will receive an expensive “Chinese” and a cheap “Russian” version.
According to the American publication, the first version is a long-range aircraft designed for operations in the Pacific Ocean. The second is a shorter-range fighter for Europe.
The Drive writes that NGAD will be partially multi-purpose aircraft capable of engaging air and ground targets. The publication notes that the sixth generation fighter resembles the world’s first fifth generation F-22 Raptor, which the Pentagon plans to abandon. Nevertheless, according to The Drive, the first will differ from the second in its increased range and larger combat load.
The publication notes that the production of shorter-range fighters will be cheaper than that of larger planes.
In September 2020, Will Roper, who holds the position of Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Air Force Procurement, announced that the Pentagon had secretly designed, built and at least once took off in the air a prototype X-plane, which means, in particular, a new generation unmanned or manned aircraft, including a sixth-generation fighter plane, under the NGAD program.
