I wrote a thread around 2008 highlighting how old our air fleets were. In the 90s the Air Force, over a couple of years, bought 0 aircraft, waiting for the F-22, instead of starting replacement/upgrades of existing aircraft. Then Rumsfeld decided he didn't like the F-22 and killed it where it is now, and no one said a word.
Now, we're looking at funding the KC-46, KC-Y, KC-Z, T-X, $3B each for F-15 and B-1 upgrades, F-35, LRS-B, E-8 replacement, and within 6 years starting on the E-3 replacement.
