    With the news of the purchase of the Danish F-16s, it is pathetic, how the opposition, many of whom, do not even know the difference between an F-16 and an F-15, are crying out for the arrival of alleged scrap metal.
    Most do not even see that the planes are modernized.
    To make matters worse, they publish that the Russians offered us the MiG-35, Su-30 and Su-35.
    But when he ruled the left, he didn't worry about making deals with the Russians. What's more, he continued buying Western weapons, agreeing to the use of Israeli technology, etc., etc.
    If you go further, one of the planes he was coming up with was the Israeli Kfir.

    They would never sell the Danes an amazing version of the aircraft because they are no where near any front line... not that that would save them much money.

    These planes could probably be upgraded to be rather potent fighters, but the US relationship with the UK means such upgrades will never be an option and they will continue to own them so any time something comes up Argentina needs to agree with the US or lose their air force.

    Ask Venezuela, ask a few countries.

    The US MIC is used to drain money for other countries while giving US politicians a degree of control over those countries too.

    Most of the time it is OK as long as the country you will be fighting is Russia or China because is such cases you will get full US support.

    With any other adversary... no matter who is in the right or the wrong... it will come down to your position on the pecking order ladder... and countries in Central and South America are their back door... well more their door mat. I serves a purpose and you really only notice it when it is not there.
