If you want the best of the best and can afford it why not? You have to factor in lifecycle costs and F-16E is far ahead of Turkish F-16s so that comes with the price I suppose no? Somebody sounds jealous that the UAE has a bigger defense budget than Turkey.Yes gulf states like to pay few hundreds of millions per fighter jet, but when it comes to land vehices you can buy pretty high quality of them without getting cheated and overcharged in Turkey, unlike other western states where they demand a leg and an arm.
Land vehicles are fine for now and can be replaced should the time come but lets hope nothing else is purchased on such a large scale again.
