    Just read our aerospace thread and ask people working in Boeing about Indonesian enginers, we have hundreds enginers working abroad in aerospace sector ( designing/building planes only / non maintenance)

    SK has made T 50 Golden Eagle with Loocked Martin. And LM has also participated with KFX/IFX starting this year.

    Thats why we are possibly better than you :p:

    Nope, US doesnt give the AESA, it will be Korean. They have made the Naval AESA already. I hope Korean make the good one.

    I never said that was. Time is Dynamic and so are the Israelis. They are way ahead of the time. Now compare the Arabs to it, they are way behind the time. That's just an honest opinion, no sides taken.

    Everything they buy, they paid high prices due to high commissions paid to the royals. The only way the F35 will be profitable is if they sell it to the GCC. They are the only ones that afford to pay ungodly prices for a plane that can't dog fight, shoot and where the pilot can't eject safely ...

    You may be right upto an extent, but most of the time thats how world likes to see towards arabs.
    Eventually F-35 will be surpassed by some better technology.

    You are completely out of logic, it is the US who gives Usrael money, protection and technology not the other way around.. The US and EU might have Given Usrael more than a trillion $ since its conception..

    Why should anyone accept to split his house with someone coming from nowhere and claiming that his ancestors had that spot 2000 years ago? Would any law in any country in the planet accept it either?
    The Palestinians lost the "war" of 1948 to the Brits, the Usraelis just made a show when handed Jerusalem by the colonialists (wasn't it planned since the 19th century with Disraeli as British prime minister?
    All the other wars that the "Arab armies"_if one can call them armies, since most of the Arab world was still fighting the colonialists, namely France and Britain till the 60s_ had supposedly lost to Usrael, were actually lost to the same colonialist forces using Usrael as their proxy or better yet as their front cover..
    Arab armies' strength started in 1973 when they fought the hidden hands behind Usrael and Usrael itself and teached them a lesson they'll never forget. and that with more than a generation gap in most weapons; Mig 21s with 2 air to air missiles against the F-4s. with 6 or more and a more than one hour loiter time against 10 minutes for the Migs, the same was with tanks and other major weapons..And why The US or EU will give their best weapons to the "strongest" country in the middle east for free, if they didn't think that it was actually the weakest..Another good example is yet again the F-35 only for Usrael..

    Can you give examples of both, so to enlighten us please!?

    Actually KSA and the GCC will accept to buy the F-35 if there is at least 30% of ToT otherwise they will look somewhere else.. it is the new policy and there are noexeptions , only the previous orders to the decision can still come with less ToT or none..KSA will go (already asked) for the F-22 Raptor..Since Japan might get it too!

    So you are implying that yu are better than the Americans who made the plane and the Europeans who have contributed to it, and you arestill going to improveon it while it has been made and tested for every weather or geography.. only you can believe your lies , because you invent them..
    You come on the thread steal it , make it your own and start bashing anyone who tell you some truth, even if based on facts.. You can consider yourself lucky not to hear insults from every member here, like what goes on in Usraeli forums.. where everyone is bashing Arabs, Muslims, Christians , and practically anyone who is not Jewish or zionist..and trying to participate!! Talk about trolling...

    Well it only a matter of time before we start selling the F35 to gulf countries. The problem is the helmet system is made by an Israeli company.

    I doubt it the market is so lucrative in the gulf, and without any competition for europe.

    Europe have tech to built 5th gen manned or unmanned fighter, if their ME allies are willing to pay development cost then they will not hesitate to develop one for them as it will help them in similar way as India helped Russia by funding development of Mig-29K.

    TFX will be supported by one of top western company in development and ME countries could join the project or take similar path.
