Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan is said to have informed the Pentagon that the F-35 fighters which will be acquired in favor of the the UAE Air Force (UAEAF) should be fully equipped.
This comes after the the Trump Administration informed the US Congress of its intent to sell F-35 fighters to the UAE (30/10/20).
This also comes amid news reports suggesting the F-35 fighters on order by the UAE will not have the same specifications as those in service with the Israeli Air Force (IAF).
Tactical Report has prepared a 321-word report to shed more light on Sheikh Mohammad’s reaction.
