Hi Altern.
Say, you are very active on the forum! to answer you, in europe, we are not as blessed as the americans in terms of new fighter planes.

We operate differently from them because we can say that France has the GDP of Texas or California. The USA has such enormous investment power!

Before 1990 it was the countries that decided on a new military program on their own. it was decisions taken by our politicians on the requests of the military. now you can see that we are trying to mutalize but it's hard, especially because of the Germans... lol.

The USA works differently with research agencies with a lot of budget (darpa, nasa, DOE, ONI, NRO...). They are the ones who make the research requests to the manufacturers. not politicians.

In France, the DGA has begun to assume this leadership role since the Rafale program. She is the one who works with startups, industrialists and the military to define the needs of the future.

France has a lot of secret program but we don't talk about it. They are not necessarily in combat jets. but we invented the scram jet technology and we are testing it right now. on cyber we are very respected by the USA. Thales succeeded in hacking a satellite (info released in the press, so that's to say we know how to do it and for a long time)

We have the best submarine in the world - the m51 missiles are jewels and impress all powers. We are working on the sequel in secret. To the firing control of the leclerc tank or to the caesar sighting system... all that dates from the 1990s and there we are working on the sequel with scorpion. We work on so many topics in secret that the list is long. I let you inform yourself about the inertial unit where we are clearly 30 years ahead.

only today the technologies come from manufacturers or start-ups. they are the ones who make the prototypes on their own budget. and there it goes slower.

If you have come this far as a bonus you search for AIRBUS LOUT and you will see a European black program
