The sudden deployment of more than 25 F-22 fighter jets also heightened concerns from China and Russia. Analysts believe this deployment was done to send a clear message to China. Late last year, the Chinese military released a propaganda video of the attack on Guam. In which the Chinese H-6 strategic bomber was seen to drop atomic bombs on Guam.

Ken Wilsbach that we have never deployed so many Raptors in the Pacific Air Force area of operations.
