The US and the UAE are close to an arms deal worth $23 billion which includes F-35 stealth fighters, armed drones and more.

The deal includes up to 50 F-35 Lightning II aircraft which are some of the most advanced in the world.

The F-35 is the world’s only fifth-generation fighter plane and has some of the most advanced technology inside it.
