MARIETTA, GA — The Air Force’s premier fifth-generation F-22A fighter jet meets all of its key performance parameters despite accusations from the Pentagon’s top acquisition executive to the contrary, according to senior Lockheed Martin program officials.

The company’s defense comes as future Raptor buys remain in limbo as the White House has yet to make a decision on whether to extend production beyond the 183-aircraft program of record, reports Inside Defense (paid subscription required).

“We meet all our KPPs,” Larry Lawson, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and F-22A general manager, told a small group of reporters here during a Jan. 29 briefing.

Lawson was responding to accusations made by Pentagon acquisition executive John Young in December that the plane had not met all of its KPPs
