It's hypothetical discussion over random rumour
We already have MiG-29s, end of story

But we are already producing our own vehicles, Milos...so much stupidity. ...
JTVL and Milos are not in the same category, check the specs
Milos is heavy MRAP
JTVL is just new version of Humvee
Since we don't actually make anything in JTVL range buying them to keep USA from getting angsty would be affordable option (definitely better than having to buy their other super expensive stuff)
We can actualy find use for JTVLs plus they ain't maintenance intensive

Got any details? This slipped me by
We are still waiting for those 3 Super-Pumas from French, it's like they are building warships and not helicopters...

Neither does France
Unlike them USA can at least be useful

No it doesn't
Joining EU is not some big deal over here (not anymore anyway)
It's seen as something to get checked off the list, we can already travel wherever we want in EU and by now everyone knows that there will be no free money from EU (and realistically we already checked all the boxes for membership but regardless it will not be happening anytime soon)
Also it's clear as day that EU will not be expanding anymore at least for decades to come and once they do decide to expand Croatia will just veto us joining, this ain’t' a big mystery
And the moment Kosovo recognition is pulled out as condition for joining (which it will) the whole story will be finished because there no way in hell it would ever pass the referendum
So back to topic, we can buy weapons from whomever we want
Isos wrote:They already ordered MANPADS from france....
Still not delivered, just like Super-Pumas
And we also have Kornets from Russia (ordered after French MANPADS but delivered before them, shoddy service by the French)

It's not a buy, it's a rumour
Second hand airplane from second tier power that costs more than top of the line next-gen aircraft from a global superpower?
Even dumbest local randos know it ain't happening
