    Exactly, its nothing to do with F-16 in the first place.

    Of course they want to! There is no risk involved signing additional document which results nothing on ground without contract.

    Suddenly PR moves are getting kudos. While setting up production facility is not that important!.

    Your habit of rolling on faulty arguments to make it a semantics difference is what visible here.

    Is there a new JV for F-16 production? NO
    Is there any stakes involved in signing a new 'agreement' for LM? NO
    Are they committing anything on ground without the F-16 contract? NO (related to F-16)

    Is there a new JV between Kalyani and Rafael? Yes
    Are they committing anything on ground without Spike contract? Yes

    Press release by kalyani group don't even mention Spike. Last reports were quoting BEL as integrator not Kalyani. This JV is irrespective of the contract.

    Lol, yes the agreement to jointly produce F16 in India, has nothing to do with the F16. :disagree:

    How is setting up a production line, with an Indian partner important AFTER your product was selected for a licence production? All that is left is the final order and the same would happen in the TATA LM JV, if the F16 was selected. That's also what happend after Rafale was selected and when Dassault and Thales selected production partners.

    The difference that you want to ignore, is the fact that LM went for the agreement BEFORE the F16 was selected!!!

    How do you know that? LM is producing Sikorsky helicopter parts at Tata without orders as well and we know that the production of F16 in the US is nearing it's end, which makes diverting spare production to Tata a viable option, even without F16 orders. And why is that possible? Because of this agreement!

    Again changing the initial argument.

    I said JV not agreement.

    Lol that's the semantics I mentioned before, because I know that your whole point is based on the fact that the JV existed before, so you only focus on the wording, not the content. But neither have I denied that the JV existed, nor was that my point, but that they added the F16 production to it, just as the press release stated as well!
    So it doesn't matter how you call it, important is, that they went ahead of any Indian selection and showed their intend to build F16 with Tata.

    certain exotic systems from India

    x1.jpg

    these are for minding other people business :cool:

    here i am withholding its exact purpose/description and the name of the OEM/OEMs involved because these are controversial equipment's. but i dont know what good it will do :angel:

    infact India exports these products and related services to middle east / south east asia / latin america etc

    however due to the nature of the business these deals are not publicized and it is best that they remain so.

    I was closely watching that project. Last heard 3-4 months ago it was under trials by user. Last project was scrapped when IN changed spec requirements.
