Another squadron of F's means we could retire the most worn out of our A/Bs and delay the F-35 purchases until about 2020 or so.
Not ideal (a mix of F-22 and F-15SE would have been), but the best solution given the circumstances.
The F-35s are a fluke.. It would be like downgrading back to f-100s or an F-4f..
What Australia needs are F-15(e)s and F-22s..
Not sure what can/will happen with the current administration, trying to kill any defense we allies have.. :/
(BTW, my bird was F-16)..
Yes, and we’ll throw in California for no additional charge!
The sale will fly through the Pentagon and Congress.
sorry can’t ,you’re country is not ruled by Islam ,fix that and no prob dude
The sale makes sense and will no doubt be swiftly approved. Australia is a reliable ally and is well-liked by the US public.
Forgive me. I had to click the link to assure myself that a quality newspaper had actually written such a clunky headline.
That’s what Canada should have done. Get involved with the Super Hornet years ago instead of the F-35 Edsel. Now we’re pulling out of the F-35 fiasco and starting from scratch. You folks “down under” have got it right !
