well, the rumors in Argentina have it that a pre-contrat has been signed with dassault aviation for a possible buy of Mirages 2000 that will eventually be out of service, as the Rafale gains terrain ;)

I wish this is true! If it has to be one engined, let it  be Mirage 2000.

I think i wrote long post on why not US F-16s. However, I think F-16s from Nederalnds are cheap... 10 millions per aircraft is reeeeealy cheap!

many people say that Mirages F-1 could be used while the Mirages 2000 arrive. So instead of using those, F-16 from Netherlands could be a great option. Even more if we consider Chileans have them ---> we would know their armament extensively. And they won't know much or not as much as we do about our Mirages 2000.

... ... F-16s are 40 m a copy... ...

Sergei. About the high-G turns... In the modern battlefield, the US seems to be relying completely on technology. An aspect that i actually support. They miss out in conventional warfare, though, so if something happens to their avionics, they do squat.

Russian aircraft are very good and are very reasonably priced. But they just have too many accidents for a country that's on a rather tight pilot usage. Any thought for the Su-37?

I mean, the F-16 webmaster said. they sold 18 to Chile for 180 millions, do the maths and you have 18 falcons for 10 M each.

About the Su-27, I don't really have a clue. maybe now with new president? I don't think so.... :-\

Ah... Those would be second hand?

Singapore gave a few F-16s away... Well, it'd be really neat to have an air force with Su-27s, F-15s, F-22s. F-35s, Su-37s, Su-30MKs, etc. And maybe Rafales, Mirage F.1s, Typhoons. 1 squadron each...Hm. Daydreams...

Yes, we still have those Mirages, thou modernised and refurbished. They are called "Finger" and have Israeli tech.
 The info is reliable, but it was about a PRE-buy, just possibility
