Greek government sources confirmed on Monday that Greece has decided that the 5th generation fighter aircraft of the Air Force will be the US F-35.

Speaking to the Athens-Macedonia News Agency (AMNA) the same sources said that PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed the desire for Greece to join the F-35 program during his meeting with President Biden at the White House.

He reportedly clarified that Greece is interested in buying an F-35 squadron before the end of the current 10-year period, and specifically after 2028 when there will be the necessary fiscal room for such a move.

The same government sources revealed that recently Lockheed Martin, the company producing the F-35, also informed in writing about its interest in Greece to join the specific programme and Greece’s positive response will be sent within the next few days.

“If we can agree on all the parameters, the specific aircraft will be acquired after 2028, while the best way of financing such a long-term investment for Greece in 2030 will be sought,” the same sources noted.
