On either Tuesday the 17th or Wednesday the 18th I will publish "America's Sixth Generation Fighters: The F-X and F/A-XX ". The article will extensively discuss the need for a sixth generation fighter given the ongoing development of the fifth generation F-35, the state of development in both programs, the technologies that will be incorporated in the design to define sixth generation capabilities, and the likely roles and missions of the two aircraft in their respective services. This article will be my second longest after the "Canada and the F-35" article as I spent an extensive period of time researching and writing it. Thus, I hope you guys will enjoy it!
