Hi,I do not see this happening in the foreseeable future. Israel has just got the F-35 and are honing their skill on them. They would never want another country in the Gulf to possess a stealth fighter.
I very much doubt that Emirates will get the F35 meant for Turkey---. Poland is the # 1 contender for this aircraft at this time---and will possibly get it---.
A carrot maybe dangled in front of Emirates---but 99.9%---it won't happen.
Emirates should and and does know that the best helping hand is at the end of their arm---.
Their best bet for the 5th gen program is pakistan---. The emiratis should stick to pakistan like a leach on this program---they will be surprised with the results---@Khafee.
