Defence Minister: Canada looked at Kuwaiti F-18s but Australian aircraft the ones being considered

Royal Australian Air Force FA-18A

Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan says Canada has examined the potential that Kuwait could have surplus F-18s for sale to fill the capability gap the RCAF is dealing with.

But the main drawback is that the aircraft are not available at this time, he told journalists Thursday.

Instead, Sajjan indicated that the focus is mainly on surplus Australian F-18s for interim aircraft. “As you know, we are pursuing the options with the Australians at this time,” he said.
