Qatar buys Eurofighter Typhoon for $ 8 billion


According to the contract, before the 2022, the UK pledged to deliver the Typhoon 24 fighter, weapons and spare parts to them to Qatar, as well as to train the crews. The cost of the deal is estimated at £ 6 billion ($ 8 billion), of which about 5 billion will be spent on aircraft, almost 1 billion on Brimstone and Meteor missiles, as well as Paveway IV smart bombs.

Today, the Qatar Air Force has 12 Dassault Mirage 2000 airplanes, which were planned to be replaced by modern fighter 72. The Qatari military has already signed an agreement for the supply of 36 units of Boeing F-15QA and 36 units of Dassault Rafale. Given the British "Typhoon" 24, the total number of fighters in the Qatar Air Force could rise to 96 units, reports "Warspot"

    I flock cormorants to meet them. A better eternal sandstorm. Baklanov feel sorry.

      They buy all shit, and then they complain. Although bad money has not yet made anyone smart.

        They themselves, in terms of flying, are worse than cormorants.

        Typhoons are not guano at all, but quite good airplanes! It simply raises questions about the decision of Qatar to be armed with the F-15, Rafale, Typhoon. Hassle with service. Come out a pretty penny.

          And I do not claim that typhoons are guano. I claim that they are SHIT! In terms of price and quality. Be careful please.

      It would be better if they bought Su-30 / 35.

    American, French, British. The service will cost them a little when from everywhere a little bit. But these are their problems, while there is money.

    Qatar was very scared by the attempts of the economic blockade by the Saudis.
    In England, Qatar has a huge investment (in finance, real estate, projects).
    Qatar wants to enlist the purchase of British aircraft
    British support in the showdown with the Saudis.

      Gain political support for the Naglobrit? Here are the loshars! There is no such ally on the planet that the limes would not betray.

    A good cut with kickbacks, the heart for the comrades rejoices and will stand idle in the hangars and already shoved a deny of pockets in their pockets

    They say F-35 for $ 100 million - expensive and drank.

    Qatar 24 Typhoon fighter, weapons and spare parts for them, as well as conduct crew training. The transaction value is estimated at £ 6 billion ($ 8 billion), of which about 5 billion will be spent on airplanes

    total:
    5 / 000 = 000
    It turns out 2 times more than 1 sawn F-35.

      Perhaps it was meant that this amount includes property, spare parts, ground handling facilities ...
