    Boeing keeping double profit margin with Qatar?

    36 F-15 for $12 Bn
    72 F-15 for $21.2 Bn

    US taking advantage of poor Qatar messed up geopolitical scene.

    It was notified during Obama time. Nothing new to take advantage of conflict.

    Lol Qatar paid more for F-15's than India did for Rafales.

    But no this was a pre-arranged deal around Obama time.

    But the price seems very wrong assuming it was for 36 flyaway F-15QA.

    Unless it is comprehensive weapons, systems and long term maintainence package.
    Still quite pricey.

    Lower numbers = higher cost

    That's normal but the question is, what happened to the rest? Is there still an option, did the US suddenly limited the procurement?

    I don't think the specifics of the deal are released. sources I checked can't even confirm whether this is apart of the Obama deal.

    As you said, we don't know the specifics of the deal yet, most likely system cost including weapons.

    Rafale price does not include extortion/protection fees.

    Well, Qatar has now payed the extortion price, so they could expect US to make Saudis stand down. Saudis were jumping up and down only because Trump gave them green signal to invade/screw Qatar because Saudis let him touch a glowing Islamic Palantiri.
