Re: Future UK Combat Aircraft (Project Tempest)

I only mentioned it as read that USAF having a possible rethink on NGAD program , maybe a negotiation tactic or a genuine cost too much per fighter or too cutting edge tech , whatever ,was just an idea for the USAF to get a 6th gen fighter in numbers cheaper to have money to spend on other programme...
