Close ties under the radar
« on: February 13, 2009, 04:08:36 PM »
I just read this interesting article and was wonder could Italy sneak EF2000 into the UAE and knock Rafale out?  I had no idea Italy traded so heavily with the UAE.  I though the French had the UAE locked up but after reading this I'm not to sure.  I wanted to get some opinions on this.  There was talk of replacing those hardly used Mirage 2000-5 and the strike model 9 types with Rafale's.
