Here are the top four things the new Defense budget reveals about the White House’s priorities for the US military.
F-35 jets grounded: Air Force and Navy officials have grounded the entire F-35 fleet after an initial investigation into a runway fire on June 23, when an F-35 jet caught fire during takeoff
F-35 fighter jet: Canada will soon order 65 new F-35 fighter jets, according to Reuters. Who are the 11 countries planning to buy 3,100 F-35s in coming years to replace aging F-16s, F/A-18s and other warplanes?
A-10 Warthog, if eliminated, would save $3.5 billion in Pentagon spending. But supporters of the A-10 Warthog say it has been key to close-air support missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.
F-35 fighter: The Vermont Air National Guard facility at Burlington International Airport is the Air Force's preferred site for basing the new planes. A decision is expected this fall.
F-15 Silent Eagle: South Korea officials now like the stealth capability of Lockheed Martin's F-35A better than Boeing's F-15 Silent Eagle.
Lockheed Martin F-35B: The US Marine Corps is conducting sea tests of the new Lockheed Martin F-35B at night. Check out the video of the aircraft's first night takeoff and landing.
