The U.S. Air Force’s Master Plan to Outgun China

...John Stillion, a former RAND analyst and contributor to the 2008 war game and the 2011 paper, wrote a paper [10] for the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, a Washington, D.C., think tank, proposing that the Pentagon’s next fighter should be the size of a bomber and carry 24 air-to-air missiles while also controlling drones hauling their own missiles...Stillion’s proposal were hints that the arsenal-plane concept was gaining legitimacy in military circles. But the first arsenal plane could be a fighter rather than a bomber.
