This week’s Top Ten: What we learned at this week’s Air Force One news conference
The Air Force has a long history of pushing the envelope with military aviation technology.
That history continues to be on display today.
Here are a few recent innovations that are changing the way the military operates.
The new C-130H transport planes are a big deal.
The Pentagon is rolling out its first large C-15 cargo aircraft in the next few years.
The planes, which are designed to transport about 4,000 people, will be used to transport supplies and troops between war zones and military bases in Asia and Europe.
The Army’s $2.5 billion Future Combat Air-Ground System, or F-35, is also making waves in the military aviation world.
The Joint Program Office has spent the past several years developing a stealth fighter that will be able to fly in low- and medium-rate air raids without using radar, and it’s being touted as a future ground attack platform.
The Navy is taking a different approach to its F/A-18 fighter jet.
The shipyard is taking the project seriously.
It recently unveiled a new F-18 that uses sensors, an electronically scanned array radar, computerized flight controls, and a new computerized cockpit.
The Marine Corps is taking another look at the F-22 Raptor, which is being developed to replace the F/ A-18 fleet.
The Marines have been working with Lockheed Martin to get the Raptor up to speed with the FSD-1 test jet, which was developed for the Marines.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has unveiled its newest drone: the DARPA-sponsored Predator.
The Predator will be capable of hunting for potential roadside bombs, which could prove useful as a next-generation countermeasure against emerging threats such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
The U.S. military is testing a new version of its F-16 fighter jet, the F35 Lightning II, which can carry both air-to-air and air-ground weapons.
The F35 has the capability to carry the same weapons as the F135.
And the Air Force is testing an F-15E Strike Eagle to replace its F5E aircraft.
The stealth fighter will have better radar, better sensors, and better sensors to track incoming threats.
The service has been experimenting with new radar for the F100 Lightning.
The first-generation F100, which had a radar range of up to 1,400 miles, is being phased out.
The next-gen F100 has a radar of up by 300 miles, and the third-generation, which has a range of 1,200 miles, has a stealth radar.
The Department of Homeland Security is also testing an air-traffic control system for drones.
The air traffic control system, which will be known as the “Aircrew” and will be deployed to military drones, is designed to provide remote monitoring and control of air traffic.
And, finally, the Navy is testing its next generation of drone, the LCS, which carries an integrated air defense system called the “Assault Missile System.”
It will have the capability of destroying targets at up to 500 miles away with up to 12 missiles.
We’re going to cover a lot of ground this week, so I’ll be sharing a lot more news in the weeks ahead.
Check back later for all the coverage.
But, for now, here’s what we learned about today’s events.
Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James called the F6 strike jet the most powerful weapon ever built, and her statement was backed up by the Pentagon.
The aircraft was first developed in the 1980s and entered service in 2003.
The program was supposed to last 20 years, but it has been extended twice and is expected to last even longer.
The Pentagon has been testing drones for decades.
The “Aerial Combat Drone” program was started in the early 1990s and was later expanded to include ground-based systems.
It was the first major expansion of the Department of Defense’s drone program and the program’s current program has more than 100 flights.
The new F5F stealth fighter, which the Pentagon plans to use in future missions, is not a new technology.
The Boeing-built F5 was developed from the ground up.
The technology used in the F5 is similar to the technologies used in other fighter jets, such as Lockheed Martin’s F-19 fighter and Northrop Grumman’s F4U.
The Navy recently unveiled its first fully operational drone: a Lockheed Martin F-8E Phantom.
The unmanned drone will carry out surveillance missions and will have sensors that can track targets up to 400 miles away.
The Phantom will also carry a radar, a digital navigation system, and will carry sensors that detect threats from 50,000 to 1 million feet away.
The Army is also working on an
