American fighter-bombers of the fifth generation F-35 Lightning II
Relations between the American and British military can be spoiled because of a dispute over the procurement of F-35, told British television channel Sky News, citing a source in the UK Ministry of defence.
London plans to buy 138 of the American F-35 fighter type B (sea-based). However, the source channel reported that the leadership of the Royal air force is going to replace some of them fighters such as A (land-based).
Sky News notes that the British military may be trying to save: F-35 type B costs 90 million pounds, and the type of A $ 70 million.
