The US Air Force Staff Charles Brown emphasized the importance of receiving the "Defense News" weekly reporter in the 12th, the US Air Force can introduce more F-35A stealth fighters and other newer models.

When asked and must do in the 2023 budget of the Pentagon 2023, Brown said: For what we want to give up, and how we have transitioned from existing capabilities to achieve future ability, this is really a difficult decision.

But he added that the US Air Force needs a balance risk.

This means ensuring that the operational commander will perform a task while retaining enough resources to modernize the next-generation platform.

Brown said: There must be some communication between the Air Force and the Ministry of Defense’s operational headquarters.

I found that the Air Force is very popular. When I talk to the combat commander, they tend to ask the Air Force to participate more.

Brown also said that he must tell these commanders, do not oppose the Air Force on the old model of retirement, and support the Air Force in the process of modernization, even in the short term, it means difficult to pay in the short term. For 20 years, the US Air Force is mainly in the environment of the Middle East (US military dominant, this net note), do not worry that there is an opponent with advanced air defense system. In the conflict of the opponent, which is comparable to China and other figures, this situation will change, and China has advanced weapons to prevent the US military from entering its space.

Brown stated that for some military ars that may be less suitable to deal with more competitive environments, they should be considered to retire.

Brown refused to disclose specific models, but the US Air Force announced in the 2022 fiscal year Budget earlier this year, requiring dozens of A-10C attack machines, F-15C / D heavy fighters, and F-16 series light fighters, KC -135 and KC-10 fueling machines, C-130 transporters (early models) and RQ-4 global eagle drone and other models retired.

Brown said that the US Air Force is waiting for the ultimate approval of the National Defense Authorization Law. See which models of the Congress will eventually retire. He also said that the US Air Force is used in intelligence to collect, monitor and reconnaissance models must have high survival, connection capability, and persistence. He took a RQ-4 global eagle drone in 2019 as an example, such military aircraft in high threatening environments, how can they survive.

Shortly after the departure of the US Air Force, Brown released a document entitled "Accelerated change, otherwise defeated", which talked about where the US Air Force should go to the world that is not guaranteed in a US military.

When asked if the Congress allowed the Air Force to accelerate change, Brown replied: in some cases.
