Develop it yourself then. Seriously what's with India, Turkey, South Korea etc wanting help on a single project and then wanting the propietary IP that went into that help. Why should an external supplier help create a future competitor over just one deal. This infantile thinking is pure comedy.

Probably Russia's biggest competitive advantage.

The Brists will knot "yes, yes, yes, yes", to any proposal, as long as they can provide the engines. LOL. :devil:

And then turn to Germany and France to build the: "Real European 6th gen". :P

It's called : Getting a free learning curve. :doh: Before doing the real work.
