    We need to import fighters, because we can't develop them on our own, be it MMRCAs, or 5th gen fighters.

    The contract is very small compare to the F-16 one, it's peanuts I suppose obsolescences and perhaps AASM adaptation for Yemen war.

    This might give some hints:

    New technologies could be the Talios pod, or capabilities the M2K-9s might not had so far.

    This deal was also made, but not sure if it has a relation to the Mirage:

    Adding more basic strike capabilites, next to Al Tariq PGM and Black Shaheen cruise missile would make sense.
