The choice of a new fighter aircraft is not only dictated by technical requirements. At least as important as price, capacity or robustness, the origin of the supplier (nationality/ies, but also the coalition in which the country is implicitly or explicitly affiliated) is a key element.
The chart below maps the distribution of fourth-generation fighters in the world (+ the small number of fifth-generation fighters already built). Major suppliers, the United States and Russia clearly appear as two magnets: few air forces have fighter aircrafts from one and another.
