` US Navy plans to add 22 `Boeing Electronic Attack Jets ‘ to its unfunded priorities requested by Congress ‘

#AceWorldNews says that the US Navy plans to add 22 Boeing electronic attack jets to a list of “unfunded” priorities requested by Congress, Reuters said.

The document must still be vetted by senior Pentagon officials, who have underscored their commitment to Lockheed Martin Corporation’s next-generation F-35 fighter jet, according to sources.

Priorities outlined in the 2015 budget plan and the separate $26.4 billion “growth fund” set up by the White House did not include more Boeing Co F/A-18 Super Hornets or EA-18G Growlers.

The Navy did not seek funding for either plane, but it plans to add 22 Growlers to its unfunded priorities list.
