Joint Strike Fighter and Transatlantic Defence Procurement
Joint Strike Fighter is the sole example of full-spectrum defence procurement collaboration on a weapons platform between the United States and the United Kingdom. What does the unique nature of the JSF programme tell us about the transatlantic defence-industrial relationship? What other models of cooperation are preferred, and why? How do defence procurement and broader geopolitical factors shape each other within the transatlantic context?
