Fort Meade, MD - A communications pod installed in a KC-46 Pegasus will allow the F-35 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor to connect and instantly receive and transmit the most up-to-date information to try to ensure decision superiority. This concept is known as Capability Release #1 under the Advanced Battle Management System framework, which the USAF announced on May 21 is entering a new phase.
