    That's what this is allllll about i.e. it isn't satisfied with the USA giving Ehud Barak the money to "buy" these jets, it also wants to find some excuse to skim 20% off the top and spend it on developing Israeli electronics to replace the existing Lockheed-designed electronics i.e. to reinvent the wheel.
