have a chat to anybody who works on the airbusses all say the same thing there death traps, mabey the us govenment listened to the mechanic's who worked on it.
some time's it ant about the best air craft its the one that will get you come every time
would be interesting to see who supplys the electronics for the airbus? china?
i still think a f15 would be a far better product for australian air force's as its capable of both bomber and air supority and does both mighty well.
upgrade it 5th gen equipment or possible go 6th gen drone with no fuel consuming thrust vectoring we know the airframe can take it with poliet back on the ground no reason why you couldent out turn a f22
f22 would require ground attack plane as well mabey a warthog?
