Which will be on an exercise in Texas when Israel attacks Iran. Oops!

Upgrades to older models will start in mid- to late 2014, and delivery of the new aircraft will begin in early 2015, according to the State Department.

And what a shame it will be when the IAF destroys them all. We'll just have to sell them 84 more!

From the article:

“Upgrades to older models will start in mid- to late 2014, and delivery of the new aircraft will begin in early 2015, according to the State Department.”

This won’t be a factor for at least 2 to 3 years and I doubt that the aircraft are combat-ready immediately after delivery or upgrade. I assume there’s a shakeout period.

Yes, but they must be built, first, before they can be delivered. It will take about 2-yrs before the first Saudi jet rolls off the line and then it must be accepted by the US government (DD-250) and then signed over to the Saudis.

Who's to say that once the Saudi F-15's recognize the IFF(Identification Friend/Foe) broadcast from the Israeli F-16's the Saudi pilots will find themselves unable to lock weapons on the Israeli jets.

Is there a reverse gear on the planes? Muzzies are not known for their bravado when it comes to confronting Israel. The Saudi pilots will be scared to death sh_tless, and will likely eject from their planes the moment Israeli jets turn towards any of the Saudi jets. Just like the Egyptians bolted out & ran away from their tanks in both 1967 and 1973.

1 1/2 billion muzzies against 7 million Jews in Israel, and Israel leaves them quaking in their robes, sandals & ridiculous headgear.
