The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday approved the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act that comes with a price tag of about $770 billion and the objective of countering Russia and China.

The Pentagon plans to purchase 17 F-15EX fighters and 12 F/A-18E/F Super Hornets from Boeing, Reuters reported. The report pointed out that the number of F-15s was higher than the Defense Department's request in May for 12.

The bipartisan compromise also prevents the Air Force to retire most of the aircraft that was requested, but not the A-10 Thunderbolt II, Defense News reported. The report said a Senate provision blocks the military branch from retiring any Warthog next year.
