    Core Competencies of our fighter fleet not new

    Air Superiority allows Freedom of Maneuver / Action for our

    forces while denying potential adversaries the same

    Global Precision Attack hold any target at risk -- in the air, on

    the sea, or on the ground

    Continuing cycle of new capability development to

    counter denied airspace, protect our forces and Nation

    Threat Environment we are / will be faced with

    Advanced fighters with capabilities on par with our 4th Gen fleet

    Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) systems -- better

    detection, greater range, increased lethality

    Integrated Air Defense Systems designed to deny access

    Proliferated world-wide, and growing in complexity / ability

    USAF Fighter Generations A Historical Perspective

    Our AF must keep evolving to meet these challenges

    Key Attributes of 5th Gen Fighters

    Stealth

    Minimize susceptibility to SAMs

    Engage air threats before detection

    Maneuverability

    Survive SAM engagements

    Maintain parity / dominate Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground engagements

    Multi-Role

    Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground

    Aircraft exclusive domains defined by areas of optimized performance and unique capabilities

    Fused Sensors & Avionics

    Synergistic integration of information

    5th Gen Fighters provide Air Superiority and Global Precision Attack

    against todays -- and tomorrows -- air and ground threats

    Why Stealth?

    Surface Threats to 4th Gen

    Minimize exposure & susceptibility to

    advanced SAMs

    Air Threats to Current Capabilities

    Legacy and 5th Gen vs. Su-30

    Su-30 on par with F-15/F-16/F-18

    5th Gen fighters superior to Su-30

    Allows us to Hold enemy targets at risk,

    Gives us First Look, First Shot, First Kill advantage

    Legacy fighter Engaged in war of attrition

    5th Gen provides 1st shot opportunity

    With 2x more internal AIM-120s than F-35 and F-22s

    superior speed, F-22 is more capable in an air-to-air role

    The F-22s ability to rapidly accelerate, supercruise, fly higher, and

    internally carry twice the air-to-air ordnance of an F-35A optimizes the

    F-22 in the air-to-air role

    Summary

    Complementary mix of 5th Gen Fighter capabilities required for 21st century threat s

    F-22 delivers Air Superiority Production complete; forward deployed today

    Modernization plan to increase lethality & survivability

    F-35 delivers Global Precision Attack Still in development, initial first few fielded

    Delivers Joint and Coalition capabilities

    Synergy both leverage others technology

    Common domain provides flexible, lethal and

    survivable force

    Critical mass of both required

    F-22A and F-35A ensure Joint Air Superiority and Global Precision

    Attack for the Joint Force today and tomorrow
