Canada plans to replace its aging CF-18s with F-35 model fighters

Must read

On Monday, Minister of Public Services and Procurement Filomena Tassi and Minister of Defence Anita Anand announced the process of initiating negotiations, as one of the final steps in a process that has been underway for approximately 12 years, to outfit the air force with new technology by purchasing F-35 fighter jets to replace the four-decade-old CF-18s. 

Canada’s fighter replacement project represents one of the largest RCAF investments in more than 30 years. However, the initiative is a setback for the Liberal government, which in 2015 had taken a stance against the purchase of F-35 models for questioning the effective operation of the stealth fighters.
