In First, Air Force Will Send Secure Data Between an F-22 and F-35

The U.S. Air Force will soon test out a gateway that could finally allow the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and F-22 Raptor to share data during missions without compromising the fighters’ stealth, a service official said Thursday.

It would be the first time the Air Force will test how the two highly capable fifth-generation fighters can exchange battlespace information after years of incompatibility, said Preston Dunlap, the Air Force’s chief architect serving the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics.


Triple Threat: The New F-15X Super Eagle Could Help the F-22 and F-35 Dominate the Skies

Boeing?s new incarnation of the venerable F-15 will be padding the ranks of high-dollar aircraft such as the F-35 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor- and they won?t cost the US Air Force and arm and a leg to do so.

New reports reveal that the new Boeing F-15X will come in two variants and are not an attempt by Boeing to disrupt Lockheed Martin?s F-35 rollout, but are instead going to replace 30-plus-year-old F-15Cs and F-15Ds currently in service.
