Not only are US weapons way overpriced, they are also way overspecd for the job weapons are supposed to do. Want a 300 million a piece military jet bomb some sandperson with an AK-47? Fine, but not with my money. Dropping upgraded ww2 ordinance on 1960s and 1970s planes works just as well.
Canada is right, all countries should boycott Trumpf weapons
who cares, bombadier hasn't made a competitive plane with anything Airbus or Boeing has produced in the last 20 years.
Omg using anything our military has touched is the real blackbill
More news about the free world boycotting Trumpf weapons.
Great deals and MAGA my ass!
Realistically we could probably just walk in their and take over the country with no protest
On small routes, Bombardier planes are pretty good and below the price point of the big 2. Lufthansa flies a shitton of Bombardier planes (incl. turbo props) between Germany and London City airport.
Massive militaries are unsustainable. They produce no value whatsoever. Any benefits they create are immediately negated by their operations costs. Just look at NK. Their army costs nothing and they bully the whole world.
Canada can't Afford New Military Hardware
Fuck Drumpf and Fuck Canadian "People"
Will it take 100 years for them to burn Canada?
please review the unit price of an F-35 vs the Eurofighter.
Eurofighter~about US$140 million
F-35~ $94.6 million
That being said. Germany has an interest in developing the eurofighter due to the large batch of sales they just made to the middle east. If they can piggyback off that and develop their product, more power to them. However, its just duplicating the efforts of the US who were ahead of the game, and were considered allies. With the fact that we have multiple bases in germany and are responsible for its defense.
But hey. Glorious EU. Glorious Canada. I feel the US should go full isolationist and leave the world to its own devices. fuck earth. You chodes can keep it, we will settle for space.
I agree, get more shitty Yurofighters.
How about you make your own fuckin planes ya fags
the whole world
shartistan and their pet Koreans are the whole world
Never change, burger.
We're buying 18 of them before our old ones start falling apart while we shop for something to replace our fleet with
a first world country buying jets from Australia
We barely have a first world airforce ourselves..... in fact we probably don't! I used to see F111s as a kid.... how good can our sloppy seconds be? Likely sloppy thirds since we probably bought them second hand ourselves.....
Boycott Boeing by buying used Boeing
Still have to get parts from Boeing
What did leafs mean by this?
Fucking you all are going to the thrift store to buy shit. Meanwhile your enemies are spending good cash on US goods.
Buying fighters Australia has worked to the bone for spare parts to keep your dinosaur fleet running until you end up buying the F-35 which you helped develop and is far better than any competing aircraft anyway
lol buying those outdated pieces of shit? ha ha fucking waste of money
Canadian military: our jets are old and need replacing
Kuckistan govt: hurr durr we will buy even older planes than the ones you have
It's okay canada likes it the sloppier the better
Making your own military less prepa red just to spite LE EBUL DRUMPF
The absolute pathetic state of Leafland
HAHAHAHHAHA FUCK THE USA!!!
Honestly though, maybe they just can’t afford it.
Jesus Christ. They'd let their own defense go to shit just to spite Trump.
you already spent millions participating in F35 development, shithead.
also deliberately choosing an outdated aircraft
lastly rot in hell Krauts, now and forever
sincerely, grandson of Polish resistance fighters
We would be far better building a plane that's a capable Tornado replacement.
F-35~ $94.6 million
yeah, because that is the real price for foreign purchasers...
ur carriers are set up for F35s.
We are... with the French.
“This is a revolution, but we’re not afraid of revolutions when they are peaceful, well-thought and meant to last,” said Mr Macron.
Defence experts said the announcement was a slap in the face to Britain, Europe's leading military power, in the wake of its decision to leave the EU.
"It is a sign to the British. It means 'you are leaving the EU and we are driving forward. We are no longer interested in you blocking the EU on defence'," a senior German defence industry official told Reuters news agency.
Trillions of dollars worth of weaponry used to fight subhumans with rocks and 60 year old surplus weaponry
Still losing the war on terror
Canada's reasoning may be retarded, but ultimately it's the right choice.
Canadian defense acquisitions at its finest.
And It only costs us hundreds of millions to make the decision.
The RAF and Luftwaffe Tornados are getting old. Eurofighter or F-35 will never excel as ground-attack aircraft.
canada risks safety by buying outdated jets just to attempt to insult POTUS
Annex canada when?
just make you faggots the 51st state and call you new alaska.
Well emus can't fly so air superiority doesn't take a lot.
i hope these fighters are wildlife-proof. wouldn't want shit like emu and moose cucking it up.
It's the sort of thing you can do when your military is ornamental.
the free world
Nothing says FU to the US like buying a bunch of planes that were originally built in the US.
it’s slow today
Enjoy our sloppy seconds, Canada.
already full of dust and roo shit
It's not like they were interested in defending their country from foreign hordes anyway
THIS IS WHAT THE AVERAGE CANADIAN AIR FORCE PILOT WILL LOOK LIKE IN 2020 AND ITS BEAUTIFUL!
This is true.
Maybe of JUSTin didn't waste negotiating space by trying to cram feminism into a fucking trade agreement
Tell the enemy what you have...good idea
Look at the time
Go work at a RAAF base
actually see the taped up derelict F-22 just rusting away in the hangar
dumbass canacucks buy up this shit without inspection
Imagine turnjew listening to that call from trudeau and rubbing his jew hands intensively.
i mean 18
correcting yourself instead of rolling with it and seeing where it goes.
you call yourself a shitposter?
The mistake was easily corrected and cost me nothing, can't say the same for you leaf.
EU pukes have been sucking Uncle Sam's cock for 60 years and we've kept the Soviets off your ass the whole time you've been learning to deep throat desert smegma. When we decide to deal with them your EU smell will be included for you to share their fate.
I think I hate the EU more than Islamic dogs.
When Christian USA and Christian Russia finally get pass the heathen world/EU cry baby shit you and your EU sissy boyfriend will be carrying water for the IDF. Wake up Islamic ass kisser and know the day Trump and Putin unite this planet will be white.
They would just give it to us if we aim a bb gun at them. EU has shown they are total pushees.
Technology saves one sides lives. Whose side are you on? On the ground or in one of our AC130's circling above you?
full of dust and roo shit
He was talking about the air planes not their women's cunts.
proposes upgraded weapons
After a further fallout with Straya Canada has decided to go with the Sopwith Camel since it had a bunch leftover from World War 1
Honestly I am perfectly ok with this F35s under delivered
implying it matters since Drumpf is protecting his new son in law with trillions of US dollars
damn those f35's dress up nice. Are those covers to protect from things getting into the intakes?
Truth is Canada is broke
If Israel is going through with it's F35 orders then I think that's a pretty good seal of approval that it's a perfect weapon system for bullying small impoverished nations with no way of enforcing their sovereign airspace.
Hahahha were these the shit planes America sold us that caused a heap of grief and were a huge waste of money? Glad we found a sucker to take them and get some money back.
Hey I have a box of water pistols from the 70s I can sell you too Justine. Fuck drumpf right?
The Bombardier was my favourite jet on flight simulator
You don't fuck moose you silly burger. You milk them for maple syrup.
leafs getting into the intakes ;)
enjoy our sloppy seconds faggots HAHAHAHAAHA
This. Canada went from a balanced budget to massive debt under Trudeau. They would rather spend money on benefits for refugees and migrants who themselves only take from the economy rather than bolster their military.
There has to be some Canadians that are real men and not this shit the MSM is trying to pass off as Canadian men. The MSM is the enemy of the West. Putin outs his foot up their asses in Russia. If our Houses don't stop our fake MSM then we should do it ourselves. Soon they'll have to hire a compamy like Blackwater just to leave their buildings. MSM can't kiss enough negra, fag,cor moooslims ass.when I see them on the streets I tell them the pieces of shit they are. They get nervous because they know if others join me they are in real trouble like the EU not wanting to pay for high technology. Fuck. Islam just walked in their country and started taking their women and they've done nothing. EU go to hell.
Canada has paid US$373 million into the F35 program since 1997
Canadian companies having secured US$926 million in F-35-related contracts over the last 20 years
Officials with Lockheed Martin have told the Citizen it could drop Canadian suppliers if Canada doesn’t proceed with buying the plane.
Canada could withdraw from the F-35 stealth fighter jet program on short notice by paying a little more than $300 million U.S.
You know this just means we will call up your air force for support more often right? Thanks for the free bombs America
Jesus fuckin H christ, just fuckin shoot me already
can this mron possibly make our country any worse
what is the next disgrace the Trudeau family will heap upon canadians
his mother was a whore, his father a fucking cuck and my fellow canadians elect him
just give six feet of rope user
The Prime Minister in Canada acts as both head of parliament and head of state. (Governor General is just a symbolic appointment).
Does it count on losing when the people we're 'fighting' are on the payroll of one of our intelligence services?
God damn it, the only country I want a war with is Canada.
The Soy Prince strikes again!
What will most likely hapen is the f 35s that Canada ordered will now go to Israel
I’m having trouble understanding this. Canada is helping to make f35s, or is supplier just who supplies lockheed with metal and other parts?
Is Canada in a huge contract where they have to pay over 300 million to break out of it and avoid paying more?
Why would Canada EVER need warships/fighter jets/tanks/military personnel when it's literally never fighting any wards and has never had a direct enemy ever?????
Defence so we don't anax Canada
Canada participates in all the same zog wars as everyone else.
These moosefuckers couldn't possibly just build their own planes? Why the fuck would they need to? They enjoy the protection of the good ol' USA. Ungrateful, every last fucking leaf.
You wouldn't do that. They are the only nation that tolerates your nonsense.
Canadians can't afford modern American weapons. We spend so much money on research, development and hookers that nobody even comes close to the quality, craftsmanship and destructive power.
Yes to both. Theres 900US$mil in supplier contracts that would fall through as well a hefty penalty for breaking the contract.
On top of not getting back the hundreds of millions already dumped into this project.
There wasnt a clear win situation here for canada, But just dumping the contract in favor of used f-18s is just stupid. The whole point of this whole thing was to replace our f-18's..
Not to mention a lot of this seems to stem from the bombardier-boeing trade feud where canada is clearly at fault for over subsidizing bombardier. Our socialist policies aer comming back to bite us in the ass and Trudy decided he was going to double down.
Their not even super hornets just normal f 18s
We don't need those weapons anyways, it's all a pretense.
The actual weapons are far above and beyond current released for sale trinkets anyways.
You never fight anyone anyways, so who cares?
Why aren't you making your own stuff?
I assume we already know all the weaknesses in the old crap we ship off to foreigners.
Because avro Canada is dead
Nothing new, Finland bought more used Leopard tanks from Netherlands for cheap who were downsizing their military.
Then Crimea happened and Netherlands admitted they made a shitty deal.
It's nothing new to buy used military vehicles from other countries. If your country already uses x in some variant, why buy more x from some other country who is downsizing or upgrading their x?
*why not buy
If you avoid incoming missiles, they win.
If you bomb ISIS, they win
Better to buy older planes that hopefully might get shot down.
