earlier this week, Belgium has shown intentions to order additional F-35A's, this was envisioned in the STAR-plan, but that was scrapped after protest by the socialist- and eco parties, the funding went to R&D.

however, there are plans that funding will be made available in the next defence plans for 2024.
