I don't know how anyone can make such a prediction. They have no idea what an enemy combatant may look like 50 years from now!
At the start of WWII (1945) they were still flying biplanes. Fifty years later, in 1995, they had stealth technology, supersonic jets, guided missiles, high performance radars, night vision capabilities, laser guided bombs, etc.
This would be like saying the Sopwith Camel would have been a viable aircraft in 1995.

but I remain ever skeptical of the collective national will to develop a hideously expensive stealth program.
