The US Congress will examine the long-awaited sale of fighter jets to Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain, the last step before a formal notification.
Sources familiar with the deal tell FlightGlobal the informal notification has begun. Qatar has requested 36 Boeing F-15E Strike Eagles, with an option for a total of 72, sources say. Kuwait has requested 28 Boeing F/A-18 E/F Super Hornets, with an option for a total of 40 aircraft, although Kuwait has also considered a split buy that would include Eurofighter Typhoons.
Bahrain has expressed interest in the Lockheed Martin F-16.

What is considered to be the most advanced fighter aircraft currently deployed/declassified in the US arsenal
and how does it compare with the aircraft that will potentially be sold?
What is currently Israel's most advanced fighter aircraft?
Is there any (legitimate) reason why Israel should be concerned about other nations having these particular versions of aircraft? Thanks!
