The US Air Force also chose the T-7A Red Hawks in the past months to replace the T-38 Talons in its inventory. For the transition to new platforms, the USA launched the Reforge Proof of Concept (RFX) process to provide advanced training in specific areas with modern training aircraft. In this process, a limited amount of aircraft procurement is planned.

The platforms planned to be procured under the RFX Program are taken as a turnkey solution. It is stated that the new aircraft will be called F / T-7X. The program will reshape the training process of command. The platforms to be procured, which T-50As are shown as the strongest candidates, are required to have the same capability as the T-7A Red Hawks and 3,000 sorties / 4,500 flight hours of flight life.
