Qatar to sign a deal for American F-15s amid Gulf crisis, sources say

Qatar will sign a deal to buy up to 36 F-15 jets from the U.S. even as a political crisis in the Gulf leaves the Middle East nation isolated by its neighbors and criticized by President Donald Trump for supporting terrorism

I imagine the Saudis are gleeful. A little skirmish with Qatar would certainly drive crude way up, nothing else the Saudis have tried has worked. The US is happy, destabilize a region then sell both sides weapons.

Heck, they'd probably even finance the conflict.

As if this is anything new. The basic F-15 is no slouch in a dogfight. But it's the "accessories" (weapons systems) that make it viable in the 21stC. Maybe they'll include that oxygen system that we've been discussing. :D

Just like back when we sold the F-14s to the Shah of Iran. The big bell/whistle was the AWG-9 radar. But oh darn, we forgot to load the software that really spread the 'cat's claws.
