Description: The United States Department of Defense (DoD) F-X program is a sixth generation fighter aircraft intended as replacement for the United States Air Force (USAF) F-22A Raptor tactical fighter aircraft. The F-X program existence was unveiled in April 2012 along with the US Navy's F/A-XX 6th generation carrier-based fighter. The development phase is slated to start by 2020 and an initial operational capability (IOC) expected between 2030 and 2035. A 6th generation aircraft should be capable of flying at higher altitudes achieving highly supersonic speeds at greater ranges than existing fourth and fifth generation combat aircraft. A 6th generation aircraft should be an unmanned platform but development of a manned version can not be ruled out. The program was cancelled following the launch of the NGAD program.
