From the inception of the battle, the F-22’s primary objective will be to establish air superiority through the conduct of counter air operations. The F-22 also has an inherent air-to-surface capability. A combination of improved sensor capability, improved situational awareness, and improved weapons provides first-kill opportunity against the threat. (U.S. Air Force photo)

This is a question we receive often. So we turned to a brilliant Air Force mind Jeff Orr.

Jeff is a 29-year Air Force officer and fighter pilot.

In addition Jeff has 23 years of instructing student pilots to fly and employ the F-16.

Moreover, including almost 18 years of distilling incredibly complex activities. Furthermore, performed at the speed of sound into actionable steps. For folks who speak English as their second (or third) language.

Jeff has a fascination with high performance culture, human behavior, history, and entrepreneurship.

Jeff told us:

“I don’t know how operative the word “copy” is in this instance. At an unclassified level, it stands to reason that it’s China’s attempt to match the capabilities of US-produced 5th generation fighters. There are certainly some visual similarities, although there are also some obvious differences as well.”
