The UAE decided to abandon the purchase of the Russian Su-35 in favor of the American F-35A

Despite negotiations, the UAE decided to abandon the Russian Su-35.

Earlier information that the UAE intends to purchase several dozen Su-35 fighters for the needs of the national army has now received a refutation. This is primarily due to the fact that the United Arab Emirates intends to conclude a deal with the United States to purchase 50 F-35A fighters for a total amount of about 10-11 billion dollars.

The chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee said Thursday that the Trump administration has informally notified Congress of its intention to move forward with a major arms sale to the United Arab Emirates using state-of-the-art F-35 aircraft. Two Democratic congressional aides said the arms package included 50 F-35 aircraft worth about $ 10 billion. "This technology will significantly alter the military balance in the Persian Gulf and affect Israel's military superiority," Eliot Engel, a senior Democrat on the House Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement., - about it сообщает TV channel "CNN".

Earlier, the UAE really showed great interest in Russian Su-35 fighters, and according to some sources even in Su-57, however, judging by the acquisition of a large batch of American F-35A fighters, these deals will not be concluded at the moment, at least for the next 5-10 years.

There were no official statements on this score, however, experts draw attention to the fact that Washington may reject the deal, and then with almost 100% probability Russian combat aircraft will be acquired for the needs of the UAE Air Force, which is likely in the United States. very seriously afraid.

Our weapon has finally lost its status of the best! With such a collapse in the country there is no other way to wait!
