    Lol the difference is facts vs fiction, that's why you desperately keep grasping on unnamed rumors. You don't have a single named official that supports your wishes, even Dassault CEO Trappier made it clear since months, that they are aiming on 36 fighters for IAF and 57 for IN. Which shows, Dassault has no hope on even getting the minimum MMRCA requirement for IAF, therfore supporting all official Indian sources, but you even kept ignoring that, because it doesn't fit to your fiction / opinion.

    :rofl: Our Defense Minister saying clearly to gear up for a similar order round the corner followed by a very big order commitment coming soon is not an official which support my point of view according to you.
    Dassault has no Hope but Ambani hope for 150-200?

    And the two agree to invest in the same joint venture?You have no idea how to conclude an international agreement if you believe that.

    Defence ministers/company executives are supposed to say positive news when it comes to company/cooperation outlook. No one in their right mind would say, oh geez.. we hope we get some orders.

    You may be right. But you are speculating. Just like the other fellow. So am I.

    But nothing to show that you know better or smart or any Jazz. So calm down.

    Which again confirms 36 optional for IAF, just as Trappier stated on the same press conference.

    Lol, they invested in a JV as part of the mandatory obligations to the offset requirements. That has nothing to do with a follow order, but is just another good example for your fictional stories. :biggthumpup:

    followed by a very big order commitment coming soon:toast_sign:

    You really think that they will create such a joint venture without agreeing on the business plan? and you think that they can agree on the business plan with Trappier having no hope and Ambani hoping for 150 -200 Rafale!
