FY 2021 Fighter Budget Highlights: The Race to Build the 6th Generation Fighter

The US and its global partners are being drawn into an operating environment which is contested, information-centric and multi-domain. This new environment will require a new stealth fighter, one that incorporates paradigm-changing technologies such as autonomous systems, AI and accelerated real-time analytics.

In order to accomplish this, the US Air Force is realigning their budget to reduce funding for outdated, legacy systems and reallocating those resources towards the development of advanced air capabilities such as the 5th and 6th generation fighters. The FY21 budget reflects this future-focused approach in a number of ways. For starters, Next-Generation Air Dominance, the program tasked with developing new, 6th generation fighter capabilities to maintain air superiority, saw a boost in budget requested from $905 million in FY20 to $1.044 billion in FY21. Though 21% of the total USAF procurement budget ($25.4 Billion) will go towards modification of in-service aircraft, the FY21 budget also suggests the service will retire over 100 legacy aircraft to make way for new, multi-domain tech.

However, that’s not all. DOWNLOAD our latest budget highlights infographic to find out where the USAF and its joint partners such as the U.S. Navy are investing to accelerate the development and deployment of advanced future air capabilities.
