Boeing is starting to search for suitable export nations for T-X.
Australia seems to be considering a requirement to replace the Hawk and Boeing is promoting the T-X.

Given the growth in privatised training providers in major Western air forces, I wonder what the long-term trainer market will look like for advanced trainers?

Halving just upgraded their Hawks, the RAAF won’t be in the market for another 10yrs.

Which is just about the point that T-X might be available for export.  It isn't even slated for USAF IOC until 2024.
