Iraq intends to acquire new fighters

Iraq intends to soon buy from the Czech Republic multi-purpose fighter-attack aircraft L-159, said in Baghdad after talks with Czech Prime Minister Peter Necas, Iraq’s Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. The head of the Czech government is accompanied by Defense Minister Alexander Vondra and Czech Industry and Trade Minister Martin Kotsourek. The Czech delegation also included ex-Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, Czech businessmen and representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Czechia expects to sell 24 multi-purpose fighter-attack aircraft L-159 ALCA (Advanced Light Combat Aircraft), produced by Czech company Aero Vodochody, to Iraq.

Also, Iraq initially intended to purchase X-NUMX units of American F-18, then this number was doubled. While the question remains open.

    But does Iraq really have a choice? The Americans themselves ordered planes from Seba at the expense of the budget of Iraq!

      I agree, but why exactly the Czech ones? and not phantoms, their USA could also be sold for a good price, I wonder what will happen to Iraq in the future, to adjoin such neighbors as Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia is dangerous

      I agree! They have no choice. "Intercessors" will not be allowed for example to take planes from us.
      This is politics, this is money

        Strange, Mi-28N combat helicopters "allowed", but no planes?
