    Did I said anything about F-35?

    What I am saying is, a deal like an aircraft's deal. That means, price of FAC is something else and price of contract award is different.

    BTW, who will give a F-35 at this price?

    For two Mistral ships, 1.37 billion euros ($1.9 billion).....

    My own data says 1.2b euro, NOT USD, for the first two Mistrals ordered by Russia. Below link seems confirm my data: U.S. congresswoman says Russian-French Mistral deal threatens U.S. security | World | RIA Novosti

    Still, everyone should be aware: deals like these big ships are hardly apple to apple comparison. In Russia's order, the ToT is limited -- seems only combat system, the Zenith 9, including source code -- but NO weapon, NO navigation, NOT communication, NOT flight control systems, especially the electricity propulsion that Russia Navy indicates its preference (perhaps under US pressure). Moreover, at Russia insistence, certain level of fitting will be done at Russia ship yard. All these should be very, very different from Juan Carlos case.

    I think there are two Russia-France contracts, first for first two ships and second for another two ships.

    Correct me if I am wrong, please.

    Juan Carlos is a little STOVL aircraft carrier. The hangar can accommodate 12 aircraft, while six aircraft can be parked on the flight deck. The ship has two elevators.

    Juan Carlos does have slightly more projection power than Mistral, but it is twice as expensive to build and operate. There is no better value out there than Mistral.
