Jordan's interest in Block 70 dates back to 2017

I really wish Jordan goes for a large number and doesn't sell them after few years. Jordan needs to maintain good balance with Israel. Yes they have diplomatic relations with Israel but sooner or later this region will explode again sooner or later it would be Muslims vs Israel again. Jordan needs to always be ready for that situation.

Two Squadrons could be as high as 46

Or as low as 24.

Currently Jordanian airforce have 44 F-16's and the squadrons of F-16's are 1 squadron, 6 squadron and 2 squadron (OCU). So I don't think Jordanian airforce field 20+ jets in a squadron. More like 16.

With 16 in 2 squadron that is like 32 decent addition while the 70 was misquoted on my part

Jordan cannot fight Israel...they are pathetic.
America will never see equipment that may endanger a single Israeli. If Pakistan worries about kill switches what will happen to Jordan 🇯🇴. These arabs are delusional to think Jews who run America will help kill zionists.
