Upgraded Electronics to F16s Hinders Sale of Twelve US Built Israeli Fleet to Croatia
1-3-19, The US has been holding up a $500 million Israel deal to sell twelve old American built Israeli F-16s to Croatia. Reportedly the USA objects that Israel upgraded the old planes with advanced electronic systems manufactured by Israel to persuade the Croats to purchase them. The US demands that Israel remove the electronic upgrades.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "For reasons we don't fully understand, the Americans hardened their conditions and, apparently, we misread their position on the deal. Practically, the F-16 deal with Croatia is dead and we don't think it is possible to get an agreement that will reconcile the U.S. conditions and the Croatian demands." During a December 2018 meeting with Sec of State Mike Pompeo in Brussels, Pompeo told Netanyahu: "I am in favor, but Defense Secretary Mattis is against it - he is the one who is blocking it."
Meanwhile, Croatia, has refused to buy the fighter jets if the Israeli systems are removed and has given Israel a deadline of January 11, 2019 or the deal is off. More here
