Re: Air Force Boss Wants Clean-Sheet Fighter That’s Less Advanced Than F-35 To Replace F-16

It can't be like a twin engine Eurocanard like the Typhoon or Rafale because that's probably not very cheap. That's a common misconception. Yes, there are some additional costs that come with more engines, but overall, your costs are really dominated by the installed thrust. The F-16 has 80 kN dry,...

Re: Future of western fighter production lines

If you are always facing a risk of sanctions, it makes sense to have a diverse fleet.
