What American weapons should be offered to whom


For example, in Poland, which has thousands of various obsolete Soviet weapons (e.g. An-2 and An-28 utility planes, Su-22 and MiG-29 fighterplanes, Mi-2 and Mi-8 transport helicopters, Mi-24 Hind attack helicopters, and BMP-1 IFVs), the US government should offer Poland replacements for those weapons (e.g. M1 tanks, F-15SE jets, M2 IFVs, M1 tanks and AH-64 helicopters). All other Eastern European NATO countries, as well as Georgia and Ukraine, should also be offered American weapons as replacements for their Soviet weapons. For Britain, the UK MOD should be invited to participate in the SSGN-X program, allowed to buy new SLBMs in America, asked to order additional F-35s, and given a complete TOT of F-35 technology. In France, America should offer KC-767 tankers as replacements for France’s obsolete B707-derived tankers, and RQ-4 Global Hawk aircraft or P-8 planes as replacements for France’s obsolete Atlantique-2 planes. Finland, South Korea, Japan, Greece and Spain should be offered F-35s to replace their obsolete fighterplanes. As for Taiwan, it should be allowed to buy whatever conventional weapons it wants to buy (incl. F-35s), and required to buy large quantities of American weaponry. All countries which use M60 Patton tanks should replace them with new Abrams tanks (not tanks of the US military). The US government should lobby heavily on behalf of American corporations bidding for Indian military contracts. In Israel, the Israeli MOD should be asked to buy hundreds of American jets, and American armored vehicles as replacements for Soviet vehicles. Japan should be asked to significantly increase its military spending and order dozens of new ships and aircraft. America should offer to sell Brazil aircraft to replace obsolete Brazilian AF training gliders, tankers, Hercules transport planes, fighterplanes and helicopters. Italy should be asked to enlarge its carrier fleet and its orders for F-35s. Super Hercules planes should be offered to the Saudis and the Israelis so that they would be able to replace their Hercules-E and Hercules-H planes; their old Hercules planes should be sold to the US military for reclamation. The RSAF should also be offered replacements for its other obsolete aircraft (e.g. F-15s, F-16s or F/A-18s as replacements for its 87 obsolete Tornado IDS planes). The Saudi Army should be offered additional M1 tanks to replace its obsolete AMX-30 and M60 tanks, M2 Bradley IFVs to replace its obsolete AMX-10P IFVs, M119 howitzers to replace its obsolete M102 howitzers, and Stryker APCs to replace its obsolete M113 APCs and EE-11 Urutu APCs. Egypt should be offered 4 C-130J planes to replace the 4 Hercules planes it lost some time ago, 26 C-130Js to replace its existing 26 C-130Hs, dozens of training aircraft to replace its current fleet of obsolete training aircraft, and 173 F-16s to replace its Mirage V, J-7 and MiG-21 fighterplanes. Romania should be offered at least 48 F-16s to replace its 48 MiG-21s. Azerbaijan, Croatia and Yemen should be offered F-16s as replacements for their MiG-21s. America should sell Turkey whatever weapons Turkey needs, including M2 IFVs, Javelin antitank missiles, M72 antitank missile launchers, and PATRIOT, THAAD and MEADS theater ABM systems. Turkey should also be offered 19 Super Hercules planes to replace 19 of its C-160 and C-130B/E planes, 7 KC-767s as replacements for its KC-135R tankers, 100 F-35s as replacements for its F-4s and F-5s, and 209 F-35s as replacements for its F-16s (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z30Ynw74u7Y). AH-64D helicopters should be sold to South Korea (which is interested in them). Israel should be offered AH-64Ds as replacements for its AH-1 helicopters. India should be asked to buy AH-64s (it plans to buy 22 new attack helicopters). Poland should be asked to buy AH-64s to replace its obsolete Mi-24 helicopters. Canada should be offered F/A-18E/F fighterplanes and F-35s to replace its CF-18 jets. Australia should be allowed to buy the 24 HH-60 helicopters it has requested, and South Korea should be allowed to buy the eight MH-60S helicopters, 16 GE T700-401C engines, and related sensor systems it has requested. Tunisia should be allowed to buy the 12 HH-60 helicopters it has requested. Israel should be offered B767 aircraft to replace its obsolete B707 AWACSes, tankers, and EW aircraft, and KC-130J tankers to replace its obsolete KC-130H tankers. All countries which operate old variants of H-47 helicopters, or any other transport helicopters, should be offered H-47F helicopters. American corporations must win all the Indian defense contracts for which anyone is bidding, including the contracts for medium helicopters, heavy lift helicopters, trainers, fighterplanes, stealth UCAVs, and cargo aircraft. America should offer the Indian AF PATRIOT batteries to replace SA-8 and SA-16 SAMs. Israel should be allowed to buy F-15SEs and to modernize its existing F-15s to the F-15SE standard. The DOD should lobby the UAE government to purchase F-16 or F-18E/F fighterplanes (it has signalled that it may buy F-18E/Fs). The UAE should be allowed THAAD BMD equipment, as it has requested, if it pays no fewer than $7 bn. At all times, unless otherwise stated here, America should export newly-made equipment, not used military gear. Equipment should never be given as FMF aid – only money should be.

The F-35 should be offered to as many foreign customers as possible, including Japan, South Korea, Canada, India, Spain, Poland, Persian Gulf allies, and Brazil. Israel’s request to be allowed to buy F-15SEs should be approved. Canada should be offered the F-15SE in case it doesn’t want F-35s. Ditto Poland.
