    Pakistan has moved away from F16's to its own brand JF series in collaboration with China. Maintenance of current assets (F16's) can be facilitated by help from Turkey till JF series is completely online.

    The 6th Genetration will arrive in USA in 2035 ..........The rest of us wait until 2050

    As for 5th Generation its a three decade cycle SO 99% OF the world will continue operating 4th generation fighters upto year 2040 minimum

    TAKE A LOOK AT PAF V IAF today

    Today in 2017 OUT OF 400 fighters in PAF over 250 are 2nd generation and early 3rd generation F7/mrage5 ie 65%

    Today in 2017 OUT OF 650 fighters in IAF over 350 planes are 2nd or 3rd generation jaguars/mig21/mig27 ie 55%

    SO don't tell us the world is moving away from 4th genersation

    If you haven't seen a smart move by him yet, you are unlikely to see one in the future.

    India's dream of producing a domestic fighter get is gone to ashes. He has even pushing microsoft to close it operations in India.

    The F35 has become cheap and is on sale for every one to buy even for Iran. This is the New America.
    Here read the article F 35 went cheap.
    Lockheed CEO promises cheaper F-35 & 1,800 jobs after meeting with Trump

    This has been discussed a thousand times, no, no and no. Thread closed.

    Trump will never allow this, and if India does buy the plane it will have a markup from wages alone, making it economically not viable.
