Qatar paid £6 billion for 24 typhoons in 2017. (That's almost 7.3 billion USD in 2017 ). Yes they are a gulf state so they probably went full spec and the money includes training ,armaments packages and infrastructure. I just think it might be too expensive to maintain (twin engine fighters) and acquire with current economy.
Except we aren't buying 24 but 12 :sarcastic:, but yeah it's too expensive and also Gripens were a better choice but as usual J-10s are also a great choice but again they are F-7 replacements

J-10s are a no-brainer for BAF from a cost, strings and adaptability perspective regardless of what Western jets they get. There is absolutely no excuse for not having at least a couple of J-10 squadrons in service by now given the gaping hole that exists in BAF's air power.

India : Now now Bangladesh you know not to say silly things like " buying J-10s" and " having an air force " cause you know daddy will be mad :P


But seriously , get Aziz and let him control the BAF

There actually might not be any sixth generation fighter jets entering mass production for the following reasons:
  1. Rapid advancements in armed drone tech. Supersonic heavy drones might soon be a reality.
  2. Various hurdles in transitioning to fifth gen fighter technology. For example - the F-35 project has been a disaster from a cost perspective. The project started off to produce cost effective replacements for F-16s but has now ended up as a vanity project. The USAF chief recently admitted that the F-35 is not suitable for regular sorties but only "high intensity" conflicts and dubbed it as a "Ferrari that you only drive on Sundays". Moreover, third world countries might never mass induct fighters costing $100-200 million a pop.
  3. Air forces around the world will remain stuck with 4th gen fighters. Even the USAF expects F-16s to remain in service till 2046/48. Leonardo pledges to support EFTs till 2060.
  4. Rapid advancement in ground and airborne radars increasingly nullifying stealthiness of fifth gen fighters rendering the tech "obsolete" to an extent even before it is widely adopted. Air forces might just quit chasing stealthiness due to limited benefits vs costs.
  5. Deadly conflicts becoming increasingly unpopular around the world. Advent of online media around the world is making it difficult for world leaders to put soldiers in harms way under false pretexts.
Bottom line is: BAF will do well to fully embrace and develop drone tech for themselves.

The bad guys will have to inspire the world again, China and Russia’s version of 6th gen is looking into autonomy for 5th gen platforms. Australia seems to be playing its bets correctly with loyal wingman. Modern fighters are highly maneuverable, especially the Russian varieties but the kinetic performance generated is too difficult for a human to sustain consistently. Remove the human factor and you’ve sixth gen fighter jets that’s superior to any 5th gen dogfighting machine
