Boeing is proposing a Super Bug upgrade plus a 6th generation fighter to displace the Lockheed F-22/F-35 combination.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the outcome of a hundred battles.

An interesting way to start their collaboration with Lockheed Martin on the next bomber. I guess it would draw much from this.....

What would they call it, the FB-46 Buzzy Bee?  Wink

The entire "old" Grumman corporation rolls over in its grave. The fact that this pretender design is the "Fighter" for the Navy is still mind boggling.

I know GE was looking at increasing the thrust on the F414. Something they need to do before they come out with any newer versions of the "Super" Hornet.

The Hornet is not Super.

I totaly agree with this. A F 22 has the same thrust at military power that a Rhino has at combat power.

Let us hope the Super Rhino will perform better than the current Rhino.

This is the Rhino that should have replaced the Tom Cat, not that thing on USN carriers now.

Lightened a bit, this would be a good ANG F-15 replacement. Slap some basic thrust vectoring in, you have a good second to the F-22.

Boeing apparently thinks it can do better, says Aviation Week's David Fulghum. He reports today that Boeing is working on a sixth-generation fighter that would appear after 2024.

Ok, since you've decided to mention it, Boeing, let's think about what new features will define a sixth-generation fighter?

My proposals: optionally manned cockpit, directed-energy defenses and variable-cycle propulsion."

I agree.

why do they think they call it an upgrade?

its already been developed but old rumsfeld cut it out of the buget it was suppose to be started 2 years ago.

I doubt the FA_22 has anything to worry about from this, its a very superb aircraft. The F-35 could and I wouldnt complain any I am not convinced that its the aircraft the navy needs in the future. I think a newer bigger version of the F-14 would work very nicely for the navy.
