    Not really anymore than the P-8I or C-17 has to be modified for Indian requirements- India always adds its own IFF and secure comns equipment to its foreign deals.

    This is WW2 Technology, Ballast calculations etc. should be easy, all you needed was a overpowered Engine to take off from sea water. All of this was modeled on how ducks/Birds land and take off from water.
    Why are we going for these,when we got much more as history?

    USA doesn't need it Bro, for sure.
    What USA want is to become the sole weapon supplier of the occidental world. F16 was a tool, F35 another.
