New US Air Force Chief Suggests Possible 'Future War' Would Be Fought 'Not Far' From US Shores

The United States Air Force (USAF) military branch will be forced to find the solutions to new challenges in conditions of limited budgets, while meeting goals of increasing the number of operational squadrons in coming years.

The incoming USAF chief of staff, Charles Brown Jr., stated that the next possible "future war" involving the US will look very different from the many wars waged by Washington in the last 20 years. A future armed conflict against a near-peer adversary, possibly Russia or China, would "not remain far from our shores" and would be more "akin to the World War II era", Brown alleged in his program paper for the military branch.

In order to prepare for a conflict, the Air Force would have to say goodbye to some of its old strategies and equipment, as well as older programmes, to embrace relevant technology and strategies, he opined. This is ever more important for the branch, considering that its budget is likely to be limited compared to previous years.
