    I’m wondering, why did Switzerland even buy these deck aircraft? Is it more profitable to exploit in the mountains?

      Mountains are everywhere; there is simply nowhere to build long GDP. The cost of military equipment does not interest them, they are only interested in the possibility of at least some kind of exploitation. One explanation.

        You are right, short stripes and mountains around. It is necessary sharply
        gain speed and altitude.
        Hornets - for aircraft carriers. They are very reliable. This is the 3rd loss
        Swiss for 17 years of operation.

          Yes, but the operation of such equipment is several times more expensive than the same F-16 capabilities which were quite enough for Switzerland

          Why goat button accordion? For me, at least let everyone crash, the pilots will eject, the civilians will not suffer. The country has enough free money bank, they will buy more.

          - The 3rd loss of 31 aircraft is 10%. Reliably?

          It sits heavily on short stripes, especially in such conditions.
          The dates also have Hornets.

        Yes, it doesn’t matter, they comment as much as they can, as they say, do not shoot the pianist, he plays as best he can ...
        If a plane crashed, say in Brazil, the reaction was similar ... Isn't it a holiday when a cow died from a neighbor, even if he didn’t do anything bad to you ... fellow

    Well, thank God, no one was hurt, and will not be hurt, and this Hornet was originally for what they were. Let them make cheese and make good watches, but there is someone to build a super-duper of the military without Switzerland in the west.

      You are in vain, they have the coolest army.
      Every Swiss military must have
      at home all the equipment, weapons and ammunition. And with them
      to report to the collection points yourself in 4 hours.
      And they shoot rounds of ammunition on record drills on targets
      the number among all the armies of the world, even more than in the IDF.

        And it doesn’t matter how many cartridges they shoot. It’s important that a small country should not go into big politics. Otherwise, a greater role will be played not by the factor where they will appear there in 4 hours, but whether they will be where they will appear, taking into account the radius of Yars’s defeat.

      Everything is elementary. Insolent Switzerland showed its true face. Hiding behind neutrality, she wanted to capture France. But the valiant and invincible army (already 75 years old) of France repelled the attack of the aggressor. The wolf in sheep's clothing suffered huge losses in aviation and was forced to sign a peace treaty and apologize. The issue of indemnification will be decided next week.
