    The new engine being developed with RR help cud be the old XG-40 engine which was a test bed to design multinational EJ-200. It seems now UK wants to develop that engine afresh. The core of that engine cud easily be upgraded to 80KN dry thrust and over 125KN wet thrust without ruining its SFC.

    Well, you asked a question and I tried to help with 2 different sources. If you believe them or not is up to you and not the point for me in this topic.

    You never produced any worthwhile sources. PKS is the last person I would believe & he has no credibility in this matter.

    The sources themselves mix up IAF's Arudhra project & LRDE's MPR. How reliable are they, really ?

    F414 is not an option anymore bcoz of the clauses which have been put by USA. We can't use any aircraft fitted with their tech or engines for nuke role.

    Both these issues (offer of partnership in advanced techs and past vanilla deals plagued with corruption) are different and frankly graft is least of my concern. Beg borrow or steal i dont really care as long as we get top notch engine technology OR get to partner in legitimate development effort with a party more competent than us.

    China has committed tens of billions of dollars to develop this KEY technology and we should let go of the chance to get it because UPA was corrupt?

    I am not able to locate the link again but this is correct. It is bcoz of this clause that we are no more interested in any further talks on F414 engine with US.

    No need of a link for a country other than USA: You use the French Mirage 2000 for this purpose.

    Yes in the past, aka means the fighter planes used for doping the gravity nuclear bomb needs electronic shielding to protect them from the EPM radiation. But now the main delivery platform is BM and the cruise bomb from strand off distance. Nuclear or non nuclear will depends on the payload, which means if the french allows India to change the payload of SCALP ALCM, then you can do nuclear strike, otherwise use your own nuclear capable cruise missile, which needs the permission of the respective OEM to mate with the fighter planes other sensors.

    Point is No country will Officially allow any other country to be used it as nuclear delivery platform directly.
