Senate Subcommittee Rejects Proposed F-22 Upgrade Cut

1 min read

CongressThe Senate’s defense appropriations subcommittee has rejected a plan by the Air Force to trim $23 million from the branch’s F-22 Increment 3.2B modernization program, Defense News reported Thursday.

Aaron Mehta writes the project will add new weapons to Raptor fighter jets and update the fleet’s electronic protection system.

The requested program cut is part of a $4.3 billion Air Force reprogramming plan, according to the publication.

Mehta reports the Senate Armed Services Committee delayed approval of the Air Force’s request to cut $41 million from an F-16 upgrade initiative, while the House Armed Services Committee deferred a $5.8 million funding cut in intercontinental ballistic missiles program.

House appropriators postponed their decision on cutting $1.03 billion in funds allocated for military aircraft spares acquisition, according to Defense News.
