        Well friends why dont we decide on some budget and then frame an air force. If there was no constraint on how much we can spend There would have been missiles being fired from American Space sattlites... just kidding....
        I propose a budget of 50 B$ for complet procurement of Fighters air bases and missiles etc.. What do ya say will be good in such a scenario ?

            It might be nice to have the Gripen but we don't really want to kill anyone that much. We had the Skyhawks for decades and never tried to kill anyone with them (although we did scare a Korean vessel fishing illegally in our waters by firing across their bow!) Anyway, our fighter pilots seem to all have found work with the Aussie/ English or other friendly nations airforces.

              many of you put C-5 Galaxy into top picks.....
              be aware that the jet is out of production more than a decade since 1990...... to resume their production you would need to order 20-30 jets - that is hardly possible

              so if you want anything like this you would need to order An-124, which has slightly higher capacity and cheaper operating cost

                Because I like the A-10:

                400 JSFs
                100 assorted other aircraft that im way to lazy to name.

                  And many of y'special forces tooo ;)

                  Is Wellinton still dull :)

                  I forgot: If all evil needs to win etc. is for good men to do nothing:
                  Who are the evil men
                  Who decides
                  Same goes for th "good" men
                  What indeed are said gentle men s'posed to do either way?

                  Whilst with the sentiment, I always get a touch concerned about definitions ...

                        I'm guessing they're there to divert attention away from the aircraft that have been produced in the last 50 years.

                                Why dosen't the RNZAF buy some Hawk-200s or some AMX-As, and they could buy the training version of either aircraft as well. Then you'd at least have SOMETHING that can fight. And they'd be damn cheap too.
