Overview

Hearing on the DoDs tactical aircraft programs, primarily the F-22, the F/A-18E/F, & the joint strike fighter. Desert Storm showed that an effective tactical air power component of the military is fundamental for our national military strategy. In the past, billions of dollars were spent developing aircraft we didnt procure or an aircraft we procured in quantities too little to justify the developmental costs. DoD faces an annual procurement shortfall of $20 billion & a projected increase in infrastructure costs of $26 billion between 1997 & 2001. Testimony from: DoD; Joint Chiefs of Staff; CBO, & the GAO. Includes schedules, & cost charts for aircraft.
