187 F-22s? There’s no way they’ll be enough to replace the what? 800 or so F-15 and 1,000 or so F-16s in service.
Those F 22s and F35s are just the front lines, those 800 F 15s and 1,000 F 16s will be around for decades while they work the kinks out of the F22 and F 35. The older iron are still among the most capable airplanes the world has ever seen.
Think thin black line of B-1s and B-2s, backed up by a couple hundred B-52’s, which have been in service since when, 1917 or so? Literally the grandchildren of the original pilots are flying them today!
