American Major General Raaberg announced a lack of funding in the US Armed Forces

The U.S. Air Force and Space Force are underfunded, forcing them to use older equipment and weapons. This was stated by Major General of the US Air Force Douglas Raaberg.

The army needs to be re-equipped with modern technology, he said. This must be done at an accelerated pace, since “time is not on the side of the United States.”

“Our air and space forces today use some of the oldest equipment in our history. The force is under-funded and inadequate compared to the requirements of the national security strategy,” Raaberg said.

The opinion of the general was supported by Assistant Secretary of the US Air Force Andrew Hunter. He also added that deliveries of new equipment are planned by 2025.
