We tend to not pay much attention in CN as we purchase what ever max level fighter jets we can or hit the max-tanks purchase button but it did make me stop and wonder the other day. If I actually was in charge of fitting out a nations military, within a limited budget (ie. pretty well anyone in the world below US military expenditure) how would I actualy do it?
Given limited funds what fighter jets would I invest in, given real world constraints (such as bans on F-22 exports, F-35 production delays and availabily problems etc), what Anti-Armor or Transport choppers would I purchase.
What style of Ground Forces would I assemble.. .a large poorly fitted out Militia type army or smaller well equiped professional army?
Anyway reply post with your thoughts on what gear you would tack onto your national budget if CN gave you the options. I'll probably have a think about it myself and reply soon too.
