Algeria... French should have divided that country instead of running away.Qatar will have nothing to say. And the relationship with France is now colder, because France decided to fight radical islam in our soil, mainly supported by Algeria, Turkey and... Qatar !
UAE is for 15 years one of the main targets for rafale sale.
Strange.... Wasn't the F35 the F16 replacement bird?"In the budget for FY 23, that's where I see that we'll really make some key decisions" about the tactical air fleet, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. CQ Brown says.breakingdefense.com
"The study will include a “clean sheet design” for a new “four-and-a-half-gen or fifth-gen-minus” fighter to replace the F-16, Brown elaborated. Rather than simply buy new F-16s, he said, “I want to be able to build something new and different, that’s not the F 16 — that has some of those capabilities, but gets there faster and uses some of our digital approach.”
I thought the F-35 was the F-16 replacement? Not only the Pentagon but a General is shitting on the aircraft?
Cost, while you are laughing at F-35, we Indians are laughing at the fact that Uncle Sam offered us F-21 (F-16 Ultra Pro Max) stating it as the best 4th gen available and it has features none other have and blah blah blah, maybe they’ll make a new semi stealth aircraft just like we are making called our TEDBF, as there is no point developing a new 4th gen fighter as the difference will be only internals but USA is still pursuing with it hence I feel it will be a cost effective semi stealth 4.75 Gen aircraft aimed to replace all old airframes.Strange.... Wasn't the F35 the F16 replacement bird?
I doubt now that USAF would trust LM,I'm sure Northrop grumman would be laughing at USAF for trusting LM for f22 and f35 and not YF-23.The U.S. Air Force Just Admitted The F-35 Stealth Fighter Has Failed
The U.S. Air Force’s chief of staff wants the service to develop an affordable, lightweight fighter to replace hundreds of aging F-16s and complement a small fleet of sophisticated F-35 stealth fighters. But an affordable, lightweight fighter is exactly what the F-35 was first conceived to be.www.forbes.com
The military industrial complex is wasting moneyDARE ANYONE call any 4.5 gen jet a "4.5 gen jet" they are now renamed "5gen -(minus)" by usaf, probably because usa was obsessed with 5th gen aircraft till they realized they r too expensive too maintain and now for convenience they call 4.5 gen as "5gen-" to satisfy their urge of 5th gen fighters.(pun intended ,no offenses)
actually f22 was not exportable so for export prospects they made f35 and kept adding technology to it but as u said if they ported the f35 like sensor suite and ew capability to f22 ,f22 would be the best,but then again americans would not like to loose in exports to russia or europe where su 57,rafales are exportable,HONESTLY speaking f35 is a good aircraft with only two shortcomingsThe military industrial complex is wasting money
They already had f-22
Which can be MLU and and developed further like asking DAS and New Gen HMD into it
And increasing numbers
F-35 program itself looks its Giant SCAM to me
1.7 trillion $
