salam alikom, i think russian aircrafts are better, cheeper than ones of europe or usa, YET arab countries seems to not care about this; their aircrafts are all made in usa or in europe. the only exception is algeria. For example : F-16 costes 30Millions $ , and Mig29 is better but costs only 12, moreover mig29 has prooved thats its one from the best raptors ; it can give deadly shots from a distance of 60km.
