Why not just sell the F-16 production line to Taiwan? It will definitely not be compromised immediately to China by and even if it was, it is last generation technology.

      This. Taiwan is both retarded and lazy. I almost want China to invade at this point, one is retarded and aggressive, the other is retarded and passive, it'll be the most hilarious war in human history.

      Nope, they can't. Pretty much only country that is in position to sell fighters to Taiwan is 'murrica. China is economically too important for anyone else to risk their trade relations. That is the very reason why they still have couple WWII era submarines in their navy and no-one making diesel electric submarines is willing sell 'em modern replacements.

      what LM offered back then to india was called block 70
      but that version has nothing to do quite literally with what is now the block 70
      they renamed it few years ago to f21 essentially its an f16 with the whole avionics package of the f35 eots excluded since its on the form of sniper xr

      They renamed it for Indian marketing likely because when they sold F-16's Pakistan, they may have agreed not to sell F-16's to India.

    hello OP, I see you're from several years in the past, if you are communicating from the past I should warn you of a global pandemic which will be a pain in the ass for a while.
    if you communication from the present then lmao

    they still a shit load of Block 70 on order and building them in the relatively small place you're trying to defend isn't ideal

    Despite this new, it was disgusting to see America still refusing to donate some F-16s or at least couple squadron worth of F-15s for Philippines for free.

    Philippines is a pious Christian nation who's currently under siege from godless Chinese communist from the north and satanic islamist Indog and Malyshit from the south. How come America. Who claimed as a nation of Jesus Christ refusing to help another Christian nation in need?

    Did America disgustingly forgotten the sacrifice of millions of Filipinos lives saving America lives and interest in World War II, Korea and Vietnam? Won't even hurt American economy if they gives some hardware to suffering Filipinos for free just like they're helping their Ukranian Christian brethren.

      TF is wrong with Filipino on PrepHole? Everytime they are posting it's all about "Plz donate", "Christian country", "Indon and Malay bad", "rescuing American in WW2, Korea and Vietnam" every single time.

      The Philippines is an authoritarian dictatorship and has been getting too close to the CCP lately

      The Philippines is not to be trusted, no free country should trust countries like the Philippines

      We must be more cautious and prudent because we could be favoring our enemies

      >another Christian nation
      I hate to break it to you but America is not and has never been a Christian nation. It is and always has been a Luciferian freemasonic colony. The people in it may be more or less Christian, but our rulers are black magicians of the lowest order.

      What the fuck kinda false flag larp is this? Whatever handful of flips who end up in 4chins dont type or even think this way. Any delusional impoverished flip who'd slithered out of some ramshackle Manila favela shed and touched a keyboard only know of four websites: Face Book, YouTube and Tick-Tock. They wouldn't be here.

      Is this some concerted effort by to discredit flips on the internet? Admittedly, such an activity is rather deserved what with all the retarded limpmoron shit our country's been pulling on the world stage, not even really mad but I'm genuinely curious as to why or what's the point.

    As much as you wanna arm Taiwan with the latest weapons its not possible to have them crewed with sufficient manpower as the conscription system cannot be used for pilots.

    They just plain don't have the manpower to crew these new jets without retooling their mainline jet pilots which given in a precarious position cannot have half its forces retooled at any one time without sacrifices to its own defense

    With the production line, you mean the factories and facilities that manufacture the parts of the F-16 fighters, right?

    If that is the case, I think it would be a good idea to move it to Taiwan because it could fortify Taiwan's air team but there are several drawbacks such as Chinese spies in Taiwan that are allowed to be sold for a few dollars to the CCP

    if you cant make cash winning a technological arms race against your adversaries due to your designs being superior to what they can produce, why not drip feed the "enemy" just enough to cause panic among the DOD figureheads and normalfags to secure funding and continued usefulness to create the next generation.

    by giving it to india it probably adds a "Time-delay fuse" to the tech proliferation, id say there is a big difference to stolen documents, specs, prints, payed informants, and all that corporate espionage shit youd have to do in india compared to practically being given EVERYTHING from the git.

    finding some indians that like the chinese, and getting them to sell state secrets might be harder than just replacing a couple bugmen in a taiwan factory.

    Taiwan has the second worst demographics after Korea iirc, not a good investment. It’s the same reason why they want to build their TSMC fabs outside of Taiwan

      At the end its better to invest now in Taiwan than later, the more Taiwan can stand on their own, the less the US need to invest when China spergs out. And if Taiwan falls, have fun with the bills to invest in the entire Pacific theatre because they will not stop here. You open the box of pandora and then what next? Withdraw from Okinawa and South Korea after Chinese demand? Left Japan to the Chinese?

      Also its a good investment to crash China itself.

    Because in a case of invasion Lockmart don't want their tooling and blueprints falling to China's hands.

    Also Taiwan simply don't want to fight but having America do it for them.

      there is absolutely nothing about the F-16 that every world power doesn't know about. i'm pretty sure russia unironically has their hands on some that they may or may not be using as aggressors for training just as they did with F-5's.

        It still a valid concern.
        Your point is just "what if", what if is better than "we're certain China has F-16 blueprints and tooling for manufacturing".

    Corruption and treason.
    Anyone advocating for production transfer to India or South America should be investigated thoroughly. India has openly communicated that they're not interested in anything else but waging war on neighboring countries.
