Croatia replaces Soviet MiG-21 with F-16 from Israel


The F-16 fighters, once received by Israelis from the United States and modernized by local industry, participate in a tender where, according to media reports, the Swedish Gripen remained their only competitor.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Prime Minister of Croatia Andrei Plenkovich in Davos yesterday. They agreed to promote the sale of Croatian Israeli F-16 in accordance with the terms of the tender
- The press service of the head of the Israeli government said.

The agreements reached are called "another expression of strong relations between the two countries." According to the Israeli business publication Globes, the amount of a potential deal is half a billion dollars, RIA News

      MiGs are definitely outdated. But in my opinion the Falcons are far from new. There is nothing to choose from for Croats. No money.

      A good choice. The Israelis shoved advanced Amer electronics into f-16, a good friend of the United States.

        So they came with the advanced "Amer", which was gradually replaced by an even more advanced Israeli. This is a world meme: - "The Israelis throw away the American and set their own", everyone knows. yes The Croatians are offered all Israeli stuffing, compatible with NATO communications, AFAR radar EL / M 2052 (possibly a new version on GaN), an updated engine with a very serious guarantee, power elements requiring replacement - replace, etc., etc. Armament, for a fee, as everywhere else. 40-42 million dollars apiece comes out. Expensive for “gifts” to these guys - NATO requires to have, let them allocate a penny.

    So what? MIG-21 has long been outdated. And the resources of the glider and engine are not endless. What's the catch? Well, they change the flag in their hands. Their business.

    The amount of the transaction is about $ 500 million. The consent of the USA is required, as these planes were donated by the USA to Israel.

      The title of the article contradicts its content.
      It should be like this: "In Croatia, a tender is being held to replace the Soviet MiG-21, in which Israeli F-16s are participating"
      Do not rush things. The tender has not yet ended and the decision to purchase has not yet been made.
      They agreed to promote the sale of Israeli F-16s to Croatia in accordance with the terms of the tender.
      It is clear in advance that the new MiGs are not of interest to us.

      I think that everything has already been agreed with the United States, since the prime ministers have so far signed a "protocol of intentions," the Croats in NATO. 12 cars is not the case that the states were waiting for fat gesheft for themselves and "grabbed".

              How do they do it? Using magic laughing ? I explain to the Jew ONCE. There is such a thing as "metal fatigue." This is even worse than cracks in the glider, as they can be repaired (patches, riveting, welding). And fatigue is microscopic cracks (often invisible to the eye) that you cannot repair in any way. Well, unless you melt the part and make it anew from this metal laughing . And because of these cracks, the plane can take offense and fall apart in the air under load. Therefore, ANY aircraft has its own service life in flying hours. And suddenly, it is the lowest among fighters (overload, metal gets tired faster). So, even a plane that looks pretty good sooner or later is sent to a landfill in the desert (did you see pictures of airplane cemeteries after all?), Where they live their life, or immediately for remelting. So to the state of a new one, you can restore a fighter only by creating a new one from scratch and throwing a few spare parts from the old one, or in your own mani laughing .
              So, it’s not me who “didn’t think”, you don’t know the mat part tongue .

              That you have now described the whole world. So far it’s calm and there are no prerequisites for war. Although they are shaking (a politician who killed the famous recently), but so far there is no relative balance (including armaments) in the ZALPU. Right now the shkriti have Iran and the evil kpd and ivan on the agenda. China is already openly sending them to its zpu with its fleet. And since they are busy, it will be calm there.

    Feel the difference

    Netanyahu, in Davos, in the process of meeting with European leaders and Trump, meanwhile, drove Croatia the old Israeli F-16. And not just like that, but by agreeing that Israel will equip them with its avionics (also not the newest - 2001 of the year), well, until the heap, it will also sell all our missiles. In short, he earned half a billion dollars on Croats.

    Abbas, frustrated because of Pence and Trump, and most importantly because of the EU commissars, who, having been scared, threw him, refusing to declare the Ramallah organized criminal group, and even after that, called on to stop paying the terrorists, decided to console himself and bought for 50 million dollars personal plane from the ticket office of autonomy.
