L'esortazione del CNO ... "La Marina dovrebbe muoversi più velocemente nel programma NGAD" ...

Quote

The Navy has to move quicker in its development and fielding of a sixth-generation fighter, the service’s top uniformed officer said Tuesday.
Speaking at a virtual forum hosted by Defense One, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday emphasized that the service cannot afford to move at the same pace it did when developing the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Lighting II.
“We can’t wait until 2045 or 2050 to field the next manned aircraft, if that’s what we think is required. We also have to come to grips with what is required: what do we think the future’s going to hold if we continue to develop and invest in weapons that are more precise and that have range and that, one would argue, will be doing fewer air-to-air combat type of scenarios?” Gilday said.

Quando, giusto un mese fa, venne annunciata l'esistenza di un dimostratore segreto del caccia di 6^ generazione americano, vi fu chi esaminò le capacità tecnologiche dei vari produttori aerospaziali d'oltreoceano per tentare di capire quale di loro avesse realizzato l'oggetto misterioso ...

Secondo Jane's ...

The United States may field a new fighter aircraft type by fiscal year (FY) 2029, according to a related contract notification posted on 4 March (*).
The contract awarded to Raytheon for AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) aircraft integration support lists several aircraft types that carry the system, before expanding its remit to potentially include those existing types that do not, as well as a type or types that have yet to enter into service.

The Air Force and Navy are working together on the Next-Generation Air Dominance program, and the Navy version has a good chance of being unmanned, said Rear Adm. Gregory Harris, the Navy’s director of air warfare, during a Navy League virtual event March 30.
NGAD will be a family of systems for both the Air Force and Navy, and the centerpiece of the Navy variant will be the FA-XX, an aircraft that will succeed the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Harris said.

The Navy is leaning toward replacing its fleet of Super Hornets with another manned fighter that will work with emerging unmanned aircraft concepts under the umbrella of the service’s Next Generation Air Dominance program.
Rear Adm. Gregory Harris, who leads the chief of naval operation’s air warfare directorate (OPNAV N98), said Tuesday that the aircraft following the Super Hornets will “most likely be manned,” but that the Next Generation Air Dominance program will include a mix of both manned and unmanned platforms.

Sono rendering, alcuni già visti, che vanno presi con le molle e che lasciano solo intendere quanto detto altrove ieri: la sesta generazione americana dal punto di vista aerodinamico, propulsivo e della stealthness, oltre che di concezione in generale della guerra aerea, costituirà un decisivo passo avanti rispetto a quanto in volo ora.

Una volta ritirato il Raptor ... lo NGAD sarà il cuore della Fighter Force dell'USAF ...

Quote

The Air Force is preparing to unveil a new 30-year fighter force design that includes at least two all-new fighters, a much greater use of autonomous and unmanned aircraft, a new way of providing close air support, and a narrowing timeline for retiring aircraft such as the A-10, F-16, and F-22, said Lt. Gen. Clinton S. Hinote, deputy chief of staff for strategy, integration, and requirements.
Hinote said the F-22 will begin to phase out in about 2030 - the exact timeline will be situation-dependent - and the Next-Generation Air Dominance fighter will be needed soon to defeat a Chinese stealth aircraft and missile threat that is “closer than we think.”
In a May 13 interview with the editors of Air Force Magazine, Hinote said Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr.’s revelation that the USAF is planning to reduce its fighter fleet from seven types to “four plus one” is the kickoff of a “transparency” campaign to explain choices to be unveiled in the fiscal 2022 budget submission.
Brown said the future fighter fleet will include the F-35, F-15EX, late-model F-16s, and the Next Generation Air Dominance, or NGAD family of systems; the “plus one” being the A-10. 
Brown did not mention the F-22, and “this was something you all rightly picked up on very quickly,” Hinote said.
The Air Force plans a “transition” from the F-22 to the NGAD, and “we felt like, now is a good time for us to be able to talk about how we’re going to bridge” between the two systems.

NGAD ... il CSM dell'USAF afferma che sarà un caccia multiruolo ...

Quote

The Next-Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) system - the fighter that will succeed the F-22 - will have ground attack capability possibly for its own protection, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. told lawmakers June 16.
Testifying before the House Armed Services Committee on the fiscal 2022 budget request, Brown said he wants the NGAD to have “multirole” capability, emphasizing that the aircraft’s primary role will be air dominance but with the ability to strike ground targets as well.
Compared to the F-22, Brown said the NGAD will have “increased weapons load [and] … increased range” necessary to operate at the great distances required in the Indo-Pacific theater.
The NGAD will have “some air-to-ground capability to ensure, one, that it can survive, but also to provide options for our air component commanders and for the Joint Force,” Brown said, suggesting that the NGAD will be able to shoot at air defense systems that threaten it.

Ci mancherebbe non fosse multiruolo... L'F-22 era già troppo ritagliato per il ruolo aria-aria da non renderlo sufficientemente interessante in numeri maggiori, col risultato che con l'F-15E (e poi EX) si ritrovano scoperti nell'attacco al suolo in profondità in contesti molto...impegnativi dove il solo F-35 non ha il vantaggio delle dimensioni in termini di autonomia e carico bellico.

Mi ha sempre interessato questa scelta strettamente aria aria. Figlio della guerra fredda e concepito per penetrare lo spazio aereo russo? All'epoca c'erano mig 29 su 27 e mig 31. In superiorità numerica quindi comprensibile il ruolo aria - aria prioritario con una certa autonomia, confidando che la componente terra aria russa non fosse un grosso rischio per un aereo stealth.  Siamo off topic mi rendo conto però la standardizzazione verso i multiruolo da un mondo di intercettori, bombardieri, etc puri è interessante e l'interruzione della produzione del f22, ha un senso.

Solo i cinesi, comprensibilmente per motivi di proiezione, marina debole, dimensioni, gioventù della industria, sono rimasti su un aereo parecchio specifico.
