As I'm sure most of us know, the Japanese F-15s are built under license. In doing research for a paper I'm working on I've looked to see how much this license cost and have found nothing. Anybody have any ideas either of where to find the info or how much the license did cost?

Another instance as such offset deals is Lockheed's sale of F-16s to Turkey. As part of the deal a production line was opened in country. The deal actually has been so successively, Lockheed has paid the Turkish aerospace industry to build additional F-16s for both Jordan and Egypt as they could be produced cheaper with better deliver dates than directly from the US production line.

Well, plus it gives Lockheed a way to produce the F-16 while Fort Worth is busy with the F-35, and Marietta is busy with the F-22.
