The U.N. Security Council has approved a $4 billion plan to provide funding to the F-15 fighter jet program, the latest U.K. attempt to revive the plane’s fortunes.
The $4bn plan is aimed at supporting the F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet, which the United States and Britain are planning to buy for $5.5 billion, and the Typhoon, a multirole fighter designed to counter Russian threats.
It comes after Britain’s Defense Secretary, Michael Fallon, said Britain would commit $1.9 billion over three years to the new planes.
U.F.O. technology, Britain’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, said, would be developed in partnership with the U.U.S.-led coalition in Syria.
