This is OT, but the Brits are actively looking for a partnership, they are talking to the Turks for their programme (also Korea?). IMO they must have calculated that going for a JV for an export engine will give them a way to monetise their 5th engine tech (from failed F-35) while they start working on 6th generation tech for Tempest. French IMO have been a little more cagey, the much bandied about Kaveri fix haven't seemed to have worked out. Anyways I don't expect hot section tech to be transferred by either, we should go with who ever offers a better deal (including Americans).
