Its being reported that Saudi is close to purchasing an initial order for 48 Typhoons.
Assuming that this is the case and there is no real reason to doubt it I was wondering what Isreal would do. The Typhoon is better than the F15, F16 and the only plane to better it would be the F22.
Problems there are two fold
a) Its cost, Isreal could never afford it and the USA are cutting back on numbers where possible
b) Politics. You can be sure that the Arab countries would baulk at the idea of Isreal getting a stealth fighter.
Its a sticky problem and I was wondering what you would do in the circumstances?
Any ideas welcome.
