The US Air Force does not see any interest in the acquisition of F-15s and F-22 fighter jets.
US forces do not want to have more of these aircraft, although they can provide them with more modern aviation electronics.
The newspaper "The National Interest" The US Air Force is betting on the production of "F - 35" aircraft and creativity of the sixth generation fighter.
The United States stopped producing F-22s in 2011 after making fewer than 200 such aircraft.
The re-launch of the F-22 project is precluded by the resumption of its production. The re-launch of the project could require between $ 7 billion and $ 12 billion, as well as the $ 206 to $ 216 million required for each new aircraft.
Another problem is that the F-22 will lag behind Russia and China when the opportunity to resume production in the mid-1920s is at best.
In view of this, the Americans felt that the F-22, although good at the moment but it is not suitable for the tasks of the future.
