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

Ed.). Experts believe that if the US is really developing a new type of fighter of the fifth generation, then this can create serious problems for the two potential opponents of the US - Russia and China, although the aircraft itself is positioned not as an offensive weapon, but as a defensive weapon.
