Summary
In April 1990, the Secretary of Defense announced that a review of the Air Force's Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) program had found that the ATF is needed to replace the F-15 for the air superiority mission, but its production could be delayed because of changed world conditions and the possibility of a longer F-15 service life. Air Force officials subsequently told your staff that the production delay and other program changes increased the total estimated program cost in escalated dollars from $79.5 billion to $102 billion. In January 1991, you asked us to identify the key factors in the ATF's cost estimate that contributed to the increase. Given the short time frame in which you wanted this information, we have relied on data provided by the Air Force. We have not independently verified the estimates
