|Quoting Marcus (Thread starter):|
Read last year on the papers that Mexico had decided on purchasing Sukhoi aircraft for maritime patrol operations, not nothing has happened and there doesn't seem to be any new information on this matter.
Does anyone have an update on this? was this cancelled?
|Quoting Acheron (Reply 1):|
Yes, it was cancelled, mostly due to budget issues, or so I've heard. At least it won't be happening this year.
|Quoting EBJ1248650 (Reply 2):|
As I recall there was a thread rather recently making mention that Mexico is looking at surplus F/A-18s here in the U.S. Don't know how far this idea has come. Odds are they can get a better deal here and I'd hope logistics and training support would be easier to acquire.
