Future fighter aircraft: contractors slate sixth-generation concepts
24 May 2019

Defence companies and governments are still ironing out issues with fifth-generation fighter aircraft, but some contractors are already looking to the defence aviation solutions of the future. What concepts for sixth-generation fighter jets have been put forward and what are some of their potential capabilities?

What to Expect from Sixth-Gen Aircraft
9/16/2019

The United States and several European nations are pursuing next-generation fighters. While many details are closely held or are still being fleshed out, a picture is starting to emerge of the capabilities they will possess.

A mockup of a Franco-German-Spanish stealth jet, part of the Future Combat Air System, or FCAS, was unveiled at the Paris Air Show in June. It came about a year after the United Kingdom displayed a model of a Tempest platform at the Farnborough Air Show. Across the Atlantic, the U.S. Air Force and Navy are planning to develop their own “next-generation air dominance” capabilities.

Survivability against sophisticated enemy air defenses is expected to be a key requirement of sixth-generation systems that might have to square off against advanced adversaries such as China or Russia.

The 1 Thing That Could Crush a Sixth-Generation Stealth Fighter - September 14, 2019
Quote
In the last few years, several countries have seemingly committed themselves to developing a new sixth-generation of manned jet fighters to succeed today’s fifth-generation stealth fighters, like the F-35 Lightning and the Chinese J-20.

Russia and Japan are interested in interceptors, such as Japan’s Mitsubishi F-3 and Russia’s MiG-41. In Europe, the interest is in a multi-role fighter—notably France and Germany’s Next-Generation Fighter, part of a broader Future Combat Air System (FCAS), and the UK’s Tempest project. These will theoretically enter service in the late 2030s or 2040s.

Key Point: While the notion of “manned” hypersonic flight is considered to be very far away, hypersonic weapons - to be followed by hypersonic drones - are moving closer to operational status. And they could be the weapons carried by the successor to the F-35.
