The threat from Chinese advanced weapons, including new stealth fighters and ballistic missiles, dominated concerns expressed by senior military officers at a Senate hearing this week on the military impact of delays and problems with the new fifth-generation F-35 jet.
But if there are further F-35 delays, "then that pacing is in jeopardy," Gen. Carlisle said.
In unusually candid comments on China's growing military power, Gen. Carlisle said: "You need only look across the Pacific and see what [China] is doing, not just their air force capability, but their surface-to-air [missile] capability, their ballistic missile capability, their anti-ship ballistic missiles," and new missiles that can reach U.S. bases in Guam and Japan.
