Canada and Germany are purchasing 88 and 35 F35 fighters, respectively.


Daniel Goure writing in 19FortyFive, makes the following points;

  • Canada was one of the original countries in the JSF consortium (planning to buy 100 aircraft), investing hundreds of millions in its development.
  • The Trudeau government went to open tender, ultimately deciding the F35 was the best option.
  • The decision by Germany to purchase the F35 came after assessing the Eurofighter and the time needed for Germany to develop a German sixth-generation fighter.
