Kind of back and while the pilots have been speaking to -- up fighter pilot -- buddies.
The kind of describe as genuine Star Wars capabilities so it's at a billion -- -- kind of like a helicopter.

Sure of course so the background is it's about two decade old program.
Kicked off an early ninety's.
-- -- -- Previous generation aircraft and -- an affordable program now.
And surprise you know we talked about -- -- and this isn't going to be shocked check to an event.
This -- expensive it's going on for two decades it's incredibly important capability because it's genuinely fifth generation -- So what that really translates into is that.
This aircraft more so than any stealth aircraft in the entire world -- to defeat radar it's -- be.
Essentially invisible so.

And then come back out.
His his generation stealth is it's called -- are very low observable.
It's profile -- says it just means you're basically invisible and it's it's genuinely next generation stuff so.

This is a really important capability that will ensure that going to future -- battle spaces we still have air superiority and dominance.
Yet there has been some controversy record -- is conferees were talking about a platform the costs that kind of money six different in the -- of course that we've seen and fly -- -- -- looks more like a bat that.

There's some some questions data's on this platform I don't know as much about it as I would like to is it is replacing the B -- is a -- separate platform.
Bomb what's allowed that plane and -- Final complement our sweet you know -- of stealth capabilities that we -- have I and everyone the Harrier is very beloved.
In men as you know it's not it -- plays really hard to save but it is focused -- replace the carrier.
I know I'm gonna get a lot of nasty ease of emails gamers about thanking everyone loves the -- -- I -- is that it'll be an affordable alternative that it would places.
Several aircraft the same time so for each and -- branch of the military they have different capabilities that they're hoping this will.
The place -- it we're a little bit early in the pipeline but I just thought it was a good moment to hit pies in -- knowledge the accomplishments that they have made in this program.
Recently -- the the night exercise which is incredibly important one of the cool tidbits.
-- -- fact is about that is.
Did this Erica doesn't highs like many of the new aircraft -- sort of state of the -- -- that the pilots -- So this -- and 360 vision.
Kind of in a way eliminates the need for a wing men advertisement -- -- just.
360 vision that there was -- creates kind of a virtual reality for the pilots.
I know they really love it but this night -- kidnapped eighteen to test out that keep abilities well me even everything from start to finish is really been an additive.
I know it's hard to say it will replace things because people go very attached to certain -- comes to bit.
You know I think in right everyone's very excited to fly this -- I can say that you know I'm going to drinks with the guys and everyone loves to get their hands like aimed at jump in that cockpit and give it a world.
It has had to.
You know last month is near there were some concerns about some design flaws but it's just so promising and they've made some really critical steps recently -- I just like to give a shout out to all those test pilots were very bravely testing it -- well.
For -- out there in the marine -- All right Alison there with a shout out of the guys Marine Corps -- and it's amazing new platform controversial but.
One that of course again anytime you have a platform like this this kind of money it's gonna.
The controversial -- respects fifth generation -- 35 stealth fighter makes headway -- the article you can -- right now on foxnews.com.
