There's no guaranties that will continue after we are locked in. If there were, then they would be willing to put it in writing, which they're not. And all the other bidders (including Airbus) are prepared to provide ITBs and to put it in writing.You can lead a horse to water.....
It’s a shame for Typhoon but I was under the impression Canada got workshare on the F-35 so are already making money from it?
That’s your payback on the project, not the IP.
"Trust me" just doesn't cut it when you are talking about this much money.
