@Sviatogor you didn’t understood me. Of course there is nothing wrong, quite the contrary, but there is a political issue. NATO state in this current situation buying RF weapon and boosting their economy, and in the same time have emabrgo of RF products under EU umbrella. So as you see it is a very big political issue.
On other hand we have big market of second hand military equipment from NATO states. In this aspect Croats did good deals with German howitzers and Kiowa heliocopters.
But the fighters problem is very big. In this time we don’t have any fighter to protect our sky. Sad but true. People often think, mah Croatia is small we don’t need them. They are forgeting that we must protect our part of Adriatic sea. Our airspace is for example bigger then Serbian airspace.
