In July, the Obama Administration defeated congressional attempts to reverse the administration's April decision to end production of the F-22, currently the world's only fifth-generation fighter. With Russia and China developing fifth-generation fighter programs, the United States could find itself ceding its aerial dominance. In cooperation with the International Assessment and Strategy Center, Hudson Institute examined the strategic implications for U.S. airpower in Asia.
Speaking at this conference were Richard Fisher, Senior Fellow, the International Assessment and Strategy Center and author of China's Military Modernization, Building for Regional and Global Reach; aviation expert Rebecca Grant, Senior Fellow at the Lexington Institute; and Reuben Johnson, a correspondent for Jane's Information Group and a consultant on international aircraft issues. Hudson Institute CEO Kenneth Weinstein introduced the event, and Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Seth Cropsey moderated the discussion.
