There are some Russian enterprises that exist in large part due to foreign orders.
No one is saying the engines sales needs to be stopped.. but that the price is ridiculous low..
Your lovely USA have given far more money to train terrorist in Syria than what they are paying in this deal..
here $500 million for jihadist terrorist.. to fight Assad..
and this is like the 10th time they give money. in similar quantities.. from 100 to 500 millions. is their terrorist help.. on average americans give $1 billion , to beardy Islamic Psychopaths every year ,to do the france terrorist attacks but every day in Syria and overthrow their government.. The Islamic Fighters that Obama sponsor already have received more than $3 billions in financial help from Obama since the conflict began.. Is very low price ,selling such technology for pennies. Such Russian companies continue building engines to Russian Government..so is not like they will go out of business. 1 billion is nothing for USA.. they gave 1 billion to ukraine recently and for nothing.
The engines don't cost anywhere near that price to build if I recall... They'd still be making money all while messing with the US.
You actually did not read ,what i told before.. Is not the cost of the engines what Russia needs to add in the price..
but their 40+ years refining their engines + the cost + the training of how's to.. Is completely wrong that Russia sale cutting edge technology , that USA cannot buy anywhere else only the price of the labor and materials.
If USA do the engines themselves.. they will have to pay 3 billions per engine design try and waste up to 10 years..
and even risk human lives.. Time is another thing that Russia is not taking into account in the price.. the time USA will save for buying theirs.. saving 10 years of time in space is worth of tons of gold.
Im really interested to know what opposition parties leaders in RUssia say about this deal.. if anyone knows..
Because im sure that there have to be mayor protest for the ridiculous low price.
