    now
    Boeing Wins Contract Worth Nearly $1 Billion to Replace Remaining A-10 Wings https://www.military.com/daily-news...rly-1-billion-replace-remaining-10-wings.html
    was now having fun by clicking through 'A-10 retirement' stories back to Sep 18, 2017
    then recalled some had tried to get rid of the A-10 even 30 (?) years before that

    The simple explanation is that funds were tight during the sequestration period of the Obama administration. It is a matter of prioritization on what to let go. When the Trump administration came in, funds started flowing in and the A-10 survived but also came the funds for necessary upgrade work.

    one of the sentences you posted is, quote,

    The F-22 upgrade, called Increment 3.2B, will invest $1.75 billion to add new air-to-air weapons, processors, and data links.

    end of quote, while
    Mar 18, 2017 just noticed, have no idea what this means

    ("this" = the Pentagon saying something in 2014, then probably doing nothing, and now repeating what sounds similar to what was said in 2014, but with money tripled)

    inside you (if I understood the formatting correctly) said

    "Interesting that both China and Russia continue to take a differing view with their reliance on 4th gen birds."

    and I guess that "differing view" is because in their military–industrial complexes isn't strong enough what some in Internet call Stealth Mafia

    (don't worry: as I've repeatedly said, I'm not in MIC Conspiracy)

    almost missed this sentence you quoted:

    "The Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System, or EPAWSS, may not “make an F-15 into an F-35 or F-22,” said ACC chief Holmes, but it will help F-15s “buy back” penetrating capability, making it harder to detect them so they can get closer to enemy air defenses."

    while May 17, 2019
    what gives, I mean hasn't the EPAWS been cancelled??
