U.S., Saudis Deal For Additional Eagles
Washington and Riyadh are close to setting the framework that could ease the way for the Royal Saudi Air Force to buy an additional 72 Boeing F-15 Strike Eagles.
Saudi Arabia has been looking at how to replace its F-15C/Ds for some time, with one area of sensitivity believed to be what standard of Strike Eagle would be made available.
There are indications that progress is being made on resolving this. It remains to be determined whether Saudi Arabia would commit to a single purchase or acquire the replacement aircraft in batches.
