Not always. If they want just a basic fighter, they could get Lightnings for less than half the cost of the Phantom.They haven't even begun to discuss what options they may have. British aircraft tend to be cheaper, and they do operate alongside the British a lot possibly offering some operational advantages. But they may also prefer buying the same aircraft as Australia since they would probably lower their maintenance and acquisition costs.So New Zeeland going to stick with British aircraft for a while
But the Americans can always go cheaper than the British if they want to.
