Exactly. Which is why we need to integrate as many US, Israeli and European precision weapons on our indigenous jets as many as meaningfully possible, along with buying some via IGA so they don't fleece us during war. So JDAM, Hammer, SCALP and SPICE.

It's doubly more important for the army, which is why we need to import some artillery guns so contracts protect us from price rises. Which is why I wanted IA to buy the ATHOS. Without a peacetime contract, the same gun will sell at 4 times its original price after the Chinese destroy all our factories and warehouses during war.
