So it seems the F-22 will probably make a come back. 😂 Trump Admin on a role. We should consider buying 36-54 too. This changes the game.
If they ain't willing to sell 35s because of S400, why would they sell 22s. But yes, would great if available.

Obviously the reason why these were never exported was because of the latest and very powerful classified technology so USA might sell a cheaper and heavily degraded F-22 Raptor to the world 🌎.

Trump Admin has two days to live. Lol.
Biden will start negotiations with Iran and freeze F-35 sale to UAE as a gesture of good will. And guess what ? UAE will buy Rafale instead.

Do you think they’ll get the original Raptors? USA will sell heavily degraded Raptors because classified technology was the reason why it was never exported.
Israel is a very very near US ally. Just as Japan, Canada, Australia.
So the less degraded birds can only be selled to these country (with a restriction to Japan, which is the sole of these famous countries to have again the level to study and built from A to Z a fighter jet). And don't forget that F22 stealth technology is not brand new.

We couldn't afford it even if it were offered. But F35 might be a good deal if offered.. Most probably not gonna happen.

You have no idea how geopolitics work. JCPOA matters more for the new administration than a couple of dozens F-35 for UAE. And the MIC as you call it is perfectly happy with hundreds of F-35 ordered by US alone. No big deal for Lockheed.

Wait, Pompeo believes he can take decisions binding his successor ? ROTFL.

It's approved by the State Department. US won't be able to go back to Iran Nuclear Deal even if Biden Wins. That jeopardizes the track to normalization of relations with UAE, Israel and others who are discussing including Saudi. The Senate with remain Republican and House too has bigger share of votes this time around.

You can forget about the Iran Nuclear Deal, not happening. Till the election is certified (far from it), Trump remains president. If a deal can be signed before 21st Jan, Biden can't undo it.

You're a bigger moron if you think LM and others will take this lying down.

The numbers of F22 in USAF is already short. With an assembly line closed I don't see USAF and US congress agree for such a sale.
But in case of a positiv issue, that means that another heavy superiorty bird is already at a later stage than the drawing board... maybe already flight testing.

S 400 and many other air defence system network together can take out F 35. This F 35 and stealth planes being invincible is just that a myth. They just have the highest chance of survival in contested zone. better than rafale for sure.
not sure.
Rafale is made for terrain maping strike. The best hiding solution....
