    Instead of looking into your own dirt, you label other's as fanboy to distract the attention from yourself. And I am not Russian, neither a Russophile, I am from China which had some conflict in the past with Russia too just like your country (Finland or Baltic?).

    And your distractive tactic won't help to cover your using the word "Monoploid" in a racist manner.

    French Defense Chief: ‘It’s Called Article 5, Not Article F-35’
    Paris wants to partner with the US, but a top French defense official says an unpredictable White House is forcing Europe to strike out on its own.

    Why are you shaking your head? I think the collaborative effort and joint investment is a good thing given that it is just a next gen ASM. It is well within their capability to make it happen unlike the "aircraft carrier" dream with the German and French.

    The carrier is not just a "dream". It is a "pipe dream".

    Yep. There have been plenty of joint European missile projects in the past which have worked fine. Meteor for example. Or the before mentioned Storm Shadow/SCALP EG missile. This project has a lot more potential than the carrier.
