Earlier it was reported that a party of fighters will cost $ 6.5 billion. This price did not satisfy the Polish government, and it tried to reduce it.
the F-35 is a multipurpose fighter of the fifth generation, manufactured by the Lockheed Martin company. According to the developers, they were able to reduce the visibility of this fighting machine to radar with a modern radar system, powerful engines and weapons. On Board, the plane can take more than 8 tons of weapons.
today, the price of the standard F-35A is 89 million dollars, but Lockheed Martin plans to reduce it to 82 million in 2020. Fighters are already in service with the USAF, Britain, Italy, Norway and Israel.
