“The way they described the technological advancements and compared them to current U. S. technology, it had me concerned.”

Umh.... Did you realy expect the 1960s designed AH-64 Apache to be technological on par with something designed in the 1990s like the EC Tiger ?

Other nations do also have nice toys. Have a look at the russian/ukrainian cargo aircraft. The AN-124 is way better then our beloved C-5.

Do you know why ? Our military procurement doesn’t take care of the products capability or reliability. They only take care to split the budget on the 4 big defence companies in a fair way.

I don’t necessarily disagree with you here, but the overall situation remains as I stated.
