    It better, otherwise its not worth the investment, unless its just a hedge against the US abandoning the Brits

    Europeans are already very late in 5gen race when china and russia have already started progress in this regard although they had much know how and better history for developing fighterjets,it seems dependency on u.s has made them slow

    The engine is the hardest part of any jet programme, and we have Rolls Royce who know what they are doing. All others have been factored in via our partnership with both Sweden and Italy ( ie Saab / Leonardo ).

    UK is one of only a handful of nation that has internal capability to build every element of a fighter jet.

    Not only that British companies are world leaders in R&D.

    No one is going to give a damn about F35 once tempest takes to the skies.

    Well the empire is gone. But that does not mean UK is not a world leader in cutting edge tech.

    Are you doubting british capability to build the tempest?

    IMO, they don't have the money for it even with European countries and would probably need vital American parts in one way or another.
