France is always looking out for their own interests and there's nothing wrong with that.
But they ask and demand the best packages of any joint project and leave nothing for the "junior" partner. Not really partner-like.

Germany should have never gone for the joint projects with France, its history repeating itself and now Germany will loose another decade or so with their defence procurement.
Could India be France's next victim?:unsure:

I don't take Germany seriously at the moment. A proper government needs to come to power. Britain should not take a country ruled by the sjw/woke/cancel culture/political correct mentality into the project. :p

Join what exactly? KAAN? The first block of KAAN will not even be a full-fledged 5th gen aircraft. The aim of FCAS or Tempest is a 6th gen aircraft.
TAI finished 5. generation aircraft. Means, they are working on the 6. Why not participate Germans?

France is successful because they sell their planes with little strings attached. Kinda similar to how Turkey deals with defence exports. Qatar, Egypt, UAE - all would have had problems with US or German involvement. Indonesia gave up on Russian jets and went for Rafale. Right time, right spot. And enough funds to develop a new aircraft on their own, they don't need German involvement.

The only reason we jump on rafale is CATSA...
Basically as long as not all americans .
