Russia will never sell the SU-57 to a Nato member... only 4 or 4.5 generation fighters left, unless China... on the other hand, Turkey is about to develeop a 5 gen fighter of there own, right?Jump to post

They are, after all, a NATO member..... So far! And it rhymes badly with buying Russian...... :bomb:...Jump to post

It seems that Sweden has postponed the upgrade of its old C-130H in favor of financing the purchase of the Patriot anti-aircraft system.
