Lt. Col. Matt Renbarger, commander of the 58th Fighter Squadron, said:
“When the F-22 and F-35 come together, it brings out the strength of both airplanes The F-22 was built to be an air-to-air superiority fighter and the F-35 was built to be a strike fighter. These airplanes complement each other and we’re trying to learn how to take that from a design perspective into a tactical arena and be the most effective combat team we can be working with the F-22s.”
I hope the two planes can communicate with each other. Seems they have had problems communicating with ground and sea forces. You would think that would not have been a problem but what else can we expect from an over bloated government project.
