Hasn't Lockheed Martin offer its "F-21" to compete in India’s tender for new fighters? India has bought the S-400, right?

Re: Potential Turkish F-35 Replacement?

It says "It will replace the existing fleet of F-16 fighter jets in service with the Turkish Air Force and join the F-35 fighter jet fleet," I thought that the F-35 purpose was to replace the F-16...... and maiden flight already in 2023 despite decision on the design isn't ready yet...?

Feels a bit like it's getting serious for Turkey to make a decision on S400 or F-35? Turkey has made it clear that the F-35 can be replaced. What is your theory as to why Turkey is acting as they do? They are, after all, a NATO member..... So far! And it rhymes badly with buying Russian...... :bomb:...
