Germany is busy selling Subs to Egypt and Frigates to Algeria. They will sell. Plus all don't have to agree to get EFT sold
I am seriously going to bang my head with the wall. J 10 C induction has nothing to do with Azm. Azm project even in perfect scenario will take 10 to 15 years. Everyone knows it from day one. And no west means Europe and USA
EFT was not offered to Pakistan, Pakistan considered it on their own. No country offers a fighter randomly unless a country shows requirement, which in Pakistan’s case they never do so publicly. They were willing to sell us EFT too, just not in the form and without the weapons PAF wanted (or that’s what I understand from the entire story, since it’s not available too clearly.)german decision was to get lucrative deals in indian subs deals(sub parts if french subs)
saab sold us because they thought they dont stand much chance
And just to be clear, the three major partners (Italy, UK and Germany) all do need to approve the sale of EFT for it to be sold. It can’t be sold even if one says no, Because At least one major part comes from each country. But that usually isn’t an issue because they want sales for their aircraft. Unlike the US or China they cannot really afford to turn down large sales like one to Pakistan. If one of the 3 is on board with the sale, they can usually convince the other two, Italy in Pakistan’s case would be enough. And Germany-Pak and UK-Pak relations are positive, unlike France-Pak relations.
That being said, they totally can refuse to give what the PAF wants exactly, which would usually be the most advanced version of what they have available, which seems to be the case according to Blacklights post, this could be either to preserve their technology because they don’t fully trust Pakistan or to keep others happy. Lastly Just the fighter isn’t the issue, the missiles for it are an issue too, though an EFT armed with just Pakistan’s available AIM120C5 would be much superior than F16V and J-10C, it doesn’t make sense in the long run obviously to buy it without Meteor Or AIM120D, neither of which are easy to get, one has a French part to it and the other is American.
And no, Germany never said no to Subs for Pakistan afaik. They were very willing to sell, They said no to AIP, which was not unique to Pakistan. Their AIP tech is not offered to anyone but countries that are close to them/NATO. This was obviously a deal breaker.
Saab never said no to selling fighters to Pakistan either, they wanted to sell the gripen back when it was tested by the PAF, it was US who blocked the sale because it had 20% US components.
