Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) is interested in F-35 stealth fighters, but permission to acquire the jets is a problem for the United States government.


Speaking on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow, Tim Cahill, Lockheed Martin's senior vice president, confirmed that Thailand had expressed interest. "This will be a policy decision of the United States government, and I honestly don't know their decision will overturn it," Cahill said. A spokeswoman for the US State Department said it does not confirm or comment on proposed defence transfers or sales until Congress is formally notified.
