This is just further evidence of the Navy's disdain for Naval Aviation, they don't like manned aircraft, they don't want Pilots to be directing their fleets, wonder what they gonna do with them 11 aircraft carriers, LOL. Its just an example of "schizo-phrenic" ideologies. That's why they don't want manned aircraft, because the way it is, Naval Aviators call the shots on when and where the Navies largest capital ships are headed now, and where they are going next.
The reason the Joint Chiefs did not support the F-22, made up of Army and Navy core, the USAF top policy makers are more concerned about sexual assault and a PC culture than their Aviation Mission, kinda disgusting to the AFB and anyone else who realizes that "AirPower still holds the key to keeping our troops and bases safe from the enemy!
They are looking to shed the 6th gen moniker, because they don't intend to field a sixth generation fighter, I'm really not sure the USAF does either, that's the trouble with playing politics and not having a "clear eyed vision" of Air Supremacy! It takes somebody with vision and "balls" to keep this Nation safe, and sadly, I can say for certain, that those good men are being corporately "emasculated" in the interest of political correctness!
