    The reason they're even in existence is because of investment from other EU countries.... we can't really afford to build our own aircraft or are unwilling to do so
    Unwilling to, as a result of the pressure to have a European project, that was a giant waste of money, and we would have been much better of designing and building our own, or buying from the US, France, or even Japan.

    But it didn't save money, that was the problem! The project was hit with delays and added costs, the French were not stupid and walked away, and as a result have an exportable highly rated French built aircraft.

    Do you not realise how much money it takes to develop a jet ?
    Look at the French and their Dassault Rafale,it costing them a leg to support it.Even America is struggling with the costs of developing modern day fighter jets,one of the reasons for the collaboration in the F35 lightening 2 fighter jet.

    Well I'm going to call this as a gigantic mistake. Would be happy to be wrong.

    Not just for UK, our economy, our laws, our politics, our future. But this will have serious ramifications for the rest of Europe too.

    Ive just realised thats your profile picture.Yes,its a beautiful and very effective jet,but its very expensive for the French to maintain.The french arent doing anything like it again by themselves.The French can only really support the Dassault Rafale due to exports.

    Yes, it's terrible. It might actually free the populations of other countries to actually take back their sovereignty from an unpopular, unelected and unaccountable oligarchich project :rolleyes:

    To be honest China are producing Motorbikes that match the same quality as Japaneese and they can produce them for like 20% the cost and still make a profit.

    Getting myself a Sinnis Apache 125cc to commute to work and back. Far cheaper than a YBR125.

    I know.Its ridicolous.Price of ships are reaching hundreds of millions ,and aircraft carriers are now these days more than 1 billion a piece.The idea Britain will be able to support its defense industry on its own is delusional.Our budget doesnt stretch far enough.At this rate,British armed forces and other militarities willl demobilise themselves via expensive equipment.
