πŸ›¦ ~ One Nation May Have No Choice But to Buy the F-35 Stealth Fighter (nationalinterest) ~ | Blogger: [πŸ’°Program Cost : US$1.508 trillion (through 2070 in then-year dollars)πŸ’°] ... {OMG! Verdensalt has said this for years and years. This article, shows more or less, how Denmark, also was FORCED years back in time, before decision was final, to order F-35's, instead of Boeing’s F/A-18 Super Hornet or other competitors, stealth fighters. A contract that will cost taxpayers 100 billion or danish kroner for one-time-cost, personal schooling, operating and maintenance costs, new hangers and all the lies they need to paid out to Mainstream media (MSM) etc. etc.} ... Under its biggest-ever weapons purchase, South Korea is to buy 40 F-35 fighter jets from Lockheed Martin by 2021. Japan is committed to buying 105 F-35As and 42 F-35B models and most of NATO's European countries, has also bought a plane, that can't fly... Always been fascinated with military planes, perhaps because i used to serve in Royal Danish Air Force as military police K-9 handler security forces... |

Canada may simply have no choice. Here's why.

Canada may be the next nation to buy the F-35 stealth fighter.

The F-35’s competitors are dwindling.

In August, Britain’s Ministry of Defense and European manufacturer Airbus withdrew the Eurofighter from Canada’s competition to pick a replacement for its 35-year-old CF-18 fighters. In 2018, France’s Dassault withdrew the Rafale from the contest.

That just leaves three contenders: Lockheed Martin’s F-35, Boeing’s F/A-18 Super Hornet and Swedish manufacturer Saab’s Gripen. The winner is slated to receive a CA$19 billion (U.S. $15 billion) contract for 88 jets in 2022.

David Pugliese, who covers defense for the Ottawa Citizen, has chronicled how the F-35’s competitors have dropped out one by one. In May, Canada’s Department of National Defense changed the procurement rules after the U.S. warned that the F-35 program barred the aircraft from being sold to nations who promised industrial benefits in return for selecting the Lightning II.
