In the US will be the third fifth-generation fighter


In the US, the third type of fighter of the fifth generation is being developed.

According to the available resource Avia.pro, aircraft builders from the United States are working on the creation of the newest fighter of the fifth generation. The new aircraft is developed on the basis of the YF-23 fighter model "Black Widow", which previously lost the tender to another fighter-F-22.

According to the source, the latest fifth-generation fighter will be designed for export to other countries, in particular, we are talking about Japan, because for objective reasons, Washington refuses to deliver its F-22 fighter jets to this country (as well as to other countries of the world - approx. Ed.). Experts believe that if the United States is really developing a new type of fifth generation fighter, then this may create serious problems for two potential opponents of the United States - Russia and China, although the aircraft itself is not positioned as an offensive weapon but as a defensive weapon.

According to military analysts, it may be about the same YF-23 fighter Black Widow, but updated in terms of avionics and powertrains, and adapted exclusively for deterring the enemy, and not for conducting offensive operations.

It should be clarified that there is no official confirmation of this information, but earlier the Pentagon had already announced that modified fifth-generation fighter aircraft would be delivered to the Japanese Air Force.
