Goldfein Says Light Attack Experiment is Chiefly an International Initiative

The Light Attack aircraft initiative would save USAF money, but should be viewed mainly as an international partnership concept, Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said.

Interviewed in his Pentagon office last week, Goldfein said the Light Attack experiment is most valuable as a way to partner with allies. It would provide a means to operate together and share information, he said.

?When we started? the Light Attack experiment, Goldfein said, the idea was to create a long-term response to ?violent extremism,? and do it in a way that allied air forces with limited resources could still contribute to the effort.
